But, I am back. I truly am. I had to take a hiatus. I was feeling rather lost and boring. I am not really sure why. I was busy and crazy and yet still feeling boring. I mean, let's face it. I was a mother of 2 kids. I worked 40 hours a week. I didn't have time to do anything but that. I was (probably still am) a shell of myself pre-kids. And blogging was making me realize that every single day. Every single day that I looked at a blank page and realized I had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SAY!
So I tried to find time to do things that would fill the pages.
I decided to do a meal plan. Uhm, I hate planning meals. I mean to the core of my body hate planning meals. I would rather be in the grocery store at 5 pm that evening with 2 screaming hungry children trying to get ingredients for some 30 minute meal (that never ever really takes 30 minutes) then plan ahead and write it down and then abide by it. I mean seriously. I am a fickle eater and have cravings. How in the world could I predict what I would be craving on Thursday on a Sunday morning over coffee? Really people, how do you do it??
I decided to go back and do photography. Except you know what. I had no time for that. At all. I had 2 little kids that require 3 trillion times the amount of attention I could give. I am pretty sure a nature walk where I tried to take some interesting photos would not be in the near future. On a nature walk I am to busy carrying one of them and telling the other not to touch the poison ivy to even consider holding up a camera. And although all of you love me. The 1 million pictures of my babies were getting boring even to me.
I decided to do book reviews. HA. Let's all just stop there and laugh for a minute. If I didn't have time to plan dinner, when in the world would I have time to read a book. And keep my eyes open.
I could do tv show reviews ... if I could stay awake through them. Or movie reviews, if i could see something other than a kids cartoon...
So, I decided to take a hiatus. Stop trying to blog and just do my thing. And my thing was work, take care of kids, sleep, and DRINK A LOT OF WINE. Oh, yummy wine. So nice to have you on a nightly basis. One glass, so delicious. How I miss you. But I digress.
Over the past year plus, I have often thought about going back to blogging but the majority of my time is consumed with working and I can't write about it so I have always stopped. But, I decided that I wanted to go back to it. Yes, my life may be boring and all, but it is my life. I do what I do and I love it. So here I am ... Back again. The mom of 3 and 2/3 kids. (Yes, I am including my husband as a full child). So, let's start this journey again....
