So it seems I overestimated the elasticity in my own life. Over the past few years as my career and our family have grown, I always figured out how to squeeze every last minute out of each day and still always add one more thing.
That works until it... doesn't.
I suppose everyone reaches a point of being overcommitted, and for me it turns out that was one child ago. I have definitely summitted the hill of my to do list, and blogging was pushing me over the edge.
Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know I have always juggled a full schedule. I worked, I commuted, I had a husband and a baby girl, I rode my horse, I cleaned my own house (or it stayed dirty), I DIY'd projects, and I still blogged more days than not. I tried to have it all, and I did. Hooray for me! I was superwoman!
I then had a beautiful baby boy (via c-section) and returned to work (6 weeks later) at the height of our manically busy time of year.
It turns out there wasn't room for everything. I was saddened, but something had to give and I unfortunately have had to make that one thing this blog.
I think about writing all the time and I miss it. I do anticipate being able to return to it more regularly in a few weeks. Probably around the first of March. I can't wait! I hope you are willing to return to reading regularly when I write regularly. Pretty please?
In the meantime, here are the people I've been focusing my time on.
I think it's the hair that really makes this picture. Beep has been just great. She is feeding deer cookies, eating her vegetables, learning vocabulary at the speed of light, making new friends, and is (almost) potty trained.
Allow me to introduce our second child, our son. We call him Bean. He is tiny and dimpled and totally fantastic. We are all having so much fun with this new miniature version of my husband. :) He's four months old now.
So please know I'll try to check in more often between now and the beginning of March. After that, I should be able to post more regularly. If I don't, it's because I'm working very long days and spending my few precious minutes with my babies and my husband.
And perhaps, every once in a while, I'll be sleeping.
