Hello, happy homemakers! How’ve you been?
Me? Like all of you, I’ve been busy. And in order to accomplish everything on my ever growing list of things to do I had to give something up. That something was this blog. I had hoped that over the course of a few months I’d be able to pick it back up again, and maybe I can again soon. But right now it’s just not feasible.
On average I was spending at least an hour a day here writing, editing or promoting… and instead of using that time here I’ve been doing things like reading more often to my kids. I’ve volunteered. I also joined a gym. I’ve tried out new recipes. I sit and snuggle on the couch with my babies and watch a Veggie Tales. I’ve been preparing for the next school year (C will be in K4!). I joined a local home school group. We’ve had a Thanksgiving supper with friends in June. I’ve started Christmas shopping. I planned a Hello Kitty birthday party for my sweet four year old. I’ve enjoyed time with my in laws. We’ve taken a few day trips to visit new (to us) areas in our state. I’d like to say I’ve been cleaning more as well but that hasn’t really happened much. 😉
The blog wasn’t the only thing I cut out. I’ve also cut down on the amount I spend on the internet in general. Facebook, emails, the whole she-bang. I have 972 unread email messages right now and I don’t even care. I read the important ones and get around to the rest (or delete them) when I have a chance.
Basically I’m trying to get my priorities in order. Get all of my ducks in a row, if you will.
Do I miss blogging? Yes! I didn’t realize how much until I sat down to write this post. But for right now, I need to concentrate on other things in my life. I plan on posting occasionally, just not a few times a week like I had been doing.
So I hope you all have a great summer and I’ll see you when I see you! Be blessed!
