Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! The sun is shining brightly in my neck of the woods, how about you?
I’ve got a lot on my mind at the moment but I’m honestly pretty tired and I have a very long work-week ahead of me with back-to-back parent-teacher conferences after work the next two nights. 26 hrs in two days isn’t my cup of tea but lord, am I thankful for my job. I won’t complain. Budget cuts are looming and with such drastic cuts to education on top of expected shortfall, I’m going to be lucky to keep my position next year at this school I love. I feel at peace right now that whatever is meant to be will happen.
I titled this post “Have I forgotten how to blog”….. I’ve been at this whole blogging thing officially since 2005 and I had a personal website before this that I started in 2000. I was great about posting here 4-5x/week for YEARS and then Facebook came along. And then I had kids. And lack of support to blog on the homefront. I was asked to keep a password on this blog when I was pregnant with my first-born (4 years ago) and I lost all my readers. The motivation to blog just wasn’t there anymore. I’ve tried making a blog comeback from time to time but the hours in the day are tight with my day-job, my side business, and raising a 2 & 3yo. I sleep no more than 5 hrs a night as is. I’m full of excuses! lol. I don’t think I have forgotten how to blog…. I actually think of things to post about all the time, and compose status updates in my head throughout the day. I post maybe 10% of them. LOl. Does anyone else do this?
This morning my bestie Kim invited me to get back on the blogging wagon with her and I happily accepted an invite to a new group on FB. A community of women bloggers who support and encourage each other. (hello ladies if any of you are new and checking in!). I’m super excited about it and look forward to meeting new people and getting back into the groove with my blog posts. We are keeping each other accountable! And no worries…. I will not be selling out to sponsors. That crap is annoying. You will, however, likely hear me sing the praises of essential oils and Plexus. And post a ton of pics of my kids and our adventures. And book reviews, etc. I’d also love to get back into the Thoughts for Thursdays to get some interaction going.
So, here we go!!
