*shuffles to center stage*
Tap tap tap...Is this thing on?
Testing 1, 2, 3. Testing.
So, um, hi.
Seems I took a little unintentional blogging break.
I think this may be the longest I have gone without writing, barring family vacations.
My mind has been full, but my ideas feel stale.
And as much as I hate to admit it, the drop in comments in this space (ironically, that blog post garnered a relatively larger number of comments) leaves me shrugging my shoulders and kinda wondering "What's the point?"
(Oh man, it's the old "if a tree falls in the woods" mentality. If a blogger stops blogging, does anyone notice?)
I first started this blog as a way to remember. Early motherhood was a blur. And I wanted to be able to have an archive, a place to record the memories. Especially since I suck at scrapbooking. And had never once entertained the idea of keeping baby books. (Yuck.)
And now that the boyz are older, the stories, well, they continue to flow. I swear, instead of "I had a mind once. Now I have children", my tagline could be "Because you can't make this shit up."
But sometimes there's a lull. In bothy my life and in my desire to document my life.
And that's a good thing.
Sure, I could write about how we just had to get a new car because I swerved to avoid an animal and hit a huDge curb and wrecked my car. But we are lucky. We can afford a car payment.
Sure, I could write about how we just had parent-teacher conferences and all my boyz are doing amazing. But we are lucky. All 3 of my boyz are thriving and healthy and academically strong.
And sure, I could write about how we're struggling with buying Christmas gifts for the boyz, because if you buy a 9 year old child an iPod touch, then what's next? But we are lucky to have these sorts of stupid "dilemmas".
Sometimes it's easier to just LIVE. Without writing. Without constantly trying to come up with blog posts in my head.
So that's what I've been doing.
