Last night we (Joe and I) were laying in bed and Joe said:
“Hey Hon, You haven’t posted anything on the blog in awhile. What’s going on?”
I had to laugh because (1) not a day has passed that I haven’t thought “Finish a post! You are so far behind!” and (2) if Joe is asking me about blogging, I KNOW it’s been a ridiculous amount of time since I posted something :/
I can’t even blame ‘writer’s block’ because I am not a real writer. I have already used the “I’ve been too busy” card (1 too many times on the blog). And I certainly can’t blame it on a LACK of things to post about because the last few months have been busy, fun and full of pictures! So, what does that mean? What’s really going on?
I have started two different posts in the last month and thought about at least 5 other topics. I think, maybe, I have just lost interest. And I think the other big factor is my Priority List. When I get home from work, it’s dinner time with the family — then bath time and story time. And by the time the kids go to sleep, I find a few hours of quiet time that I usually fill with work :/ It’s better than staying late at the office and missing dinner with the family but it stinks because after 8pm is really the only time of day that I have to myself. And honestly, blogging isn’t at the top of my list.
I am not happy with myself for letting the blog go, not only for the family & friends that pay attention to my ranting and photo-taking, but also because the more time that goes on, the LESS I can remember! If I don’t write it here, there is a good change it will be lost forever.
Rest assured that I have been spending time with the boys (and the girl) as much as possible. And I have been taking pictures along the way (Tidbits here and there, make it onto Instagram, for easy, real time updates).
The above picture was my view from this past Sunday afternoon. We were waiting for Daddy to get home from an errand and the boys were playing a game on the iPad. I sat in the chair across from them, while Lucy napped at my feet. It was fun to watch them interact with each other. Nicholas was helping AJ pass a level of a kid game and AJ was intently watching how he did it.
I am going to do my best to get caught up – at least on a few of the BIG things that have happened in the last few months Thanks for sticking with me…through the UPS and the DOWNS.
