I spent a wonderful morning cleaning. That might sound terrible, NOT wonderful but the truth is I never have time to clean. Cleaning our house becomes my husband and I just trying to keep up with laundry and dishes and frankly everything else doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It stresses me out, looking around and seeing toys in the kitchen, cooking utensils in the living rooms (seriously kids, stop moving everything!)… so when my husband took the kids out for a daddy-day I was planning on relaxing, watching a little Parks and Rec… goofing around online but then I realized I had been given a solid two hours to finally get something DONE! I was productive and it was actually stress relieving to clean and listen to my own music for a couple of hours without anyone interrupting me and the reward is a clean, clutter free living area. (I only got to the living room and kitchen because I had two hours and I am not a magical being over here). I was just relaxing with some much earned snacking when I realized… SH*%! It’s Friday… I missed posting on the blog AGAIN. Seriously it’s been hard to keep up with writing recently. We’ve been traveling, then my husband and I each traveled separately. The kids have been battling terrible colds… we had a foot of snow that caused us to lose power for 12 hours… then when it all melted our basement flooded so you could say I’ve been a tiny bit distracted.
Do I wish I was able to write something insightful and meaningful every week? Of COURSE! But the truth is I am a parent and life happens. When I have to pick between making time for the blog or for my kids, or my partner, or the workers coming in and out of our house, well, the blog gets put on the back burner.
I know some of you still check in week to week and I feel so bad that I have nothing new for you but feel the love and really appreciate that you still check in. I’ll try to get some new posts up soon, but also it could always not happen, who knows maybe a tree will fall on our house again… yeah you just can’t make this stuff up.
What crazy real-life-stuff has been going on with you? Please share! 🙂
Hopefully I’ll post again very soon!
