I Interrupt This Blog For A Little Break
Just a little break. And not a total break.
When my boys were babies, it felt like I had no time for myself. And then they grew, and that time got even more precious. But then they got a little older, and I found myself able to focus on me a bit more. Now they're almost full grown - and this school year is kicking my butt again.
I think it's both physical and mental. There are so many things to do to help T prepare for college next year. C will be graduating from his program in June, and we're helping him decide what the next step will be. It's mind boggling some days. And emotionally, I know we're counting down the moments until everything changes. This time next year, day to day life will look completely different. Not worse, just different.
On top of that, I'm still taking care of my mom. With the improving economy, our company is very busy, and I'm working more hours. I feel like I wake up in the morning, blink, and crawl back into bed again at night.
The blog is definitely suffering. My goal is to write something every day, because I want to become a better writer. The best way to do that is practice. But I feel like some days I'm throwing a post up just because I'm supposed to. I value every single person who comes here and takes the time to read, and I want that to be time well spent. There are so many things I want to write about, but I want to do it better.
I'm not going away completely, but for now I'll be cutting down on my posting schedule. Monday, Wednesday, Friday is the plan, although if I have something I really need to say, it might show up on a Tuesday or Thursday.
So much will be changing in my life over the next ten months. I want to slow down and enjoy the time. And when you visit here, during your equally busy days, I want you to feel it was worthwhile.
