Ha, so I sat down to do my homework for class... I already did most of the thought work, just have to get online and post it... and wouldn't you know I got distracted on facebook, which led me to twitter, which led me to realize that Lisa-Jo posted the Five Minute Friday prompt before 9pm on Thursday night... which led me to decide to write first and do homework later, because honestly folks... this whole not writing or blogging but once or twice a month is KILLING ME!!
I have been living in a fog all summer... It started with the end of school rush and activities and busy, busy, busy. Which led right into a trip to Disney with my husband's family. Like literally, we flew out the day after school ended! Which was an awesome time and I kept meaning to blog about it, but it didn't really happen and now it seems silly almost 4 months later.
And then we were home for less than two weeks before we were off to Ohio for our annual week with the grandparents and a HUGE family reunion!! Yet more awesome memories and crazy busy.
And then we were home less than three days and my niece died and we were off to New York to spend an awful, crazy, sad, busy, happy memories, kind of week with my family... Sometimes I still can't find the words.
And though I've attempted more than once to get into the swing of blogging again, it just isn't happening. I'm gonna tell the truth here--there has been a little bit of avoidance.
But then there is this whole 31 days series for the month of October and I have two AWESOME ideas, but I'm not sure I'm going to be able to pull it off... but stay tuned, or even subscribe to my blog to find out if I actually do it.
I thought when the kids went back to school and I was alone with my thoughts that I would find time to blog again, but that didn't happen either. I'm taking an online class toward completing my Bachelors, that has a lot of reading and some hard writing. And the new schedule with my kids is beyond crazy: one leaves at 6:50, three leave at 7:40. One I have to pick up at 11:15, one comes home at 2:30 and two come home at 3:20... I can't even keep it straight.
And I'm also trying to get my handmade card shop off the ground and running... I've had some special orders and 3 more that I NEED to complete this weekend (and oh yeah, I have a little data entry job on the side that I'm supposed to be working on)...
And that's the crazy truth of my life... and boy did it feel good just to write without worrying about it being just right...
and some day my blog posts will be about more than just what happened this week, this month, this summer...
