My blog has taken a backseat to life lately. I’ve been reading blogs in my Google Reader, but barely have time to comment on them without someone screaming for my attention. And in all honesty, I don’t have a whole lot to say (hush Auntie Nettie!) that doesn’t involve my children and their craziness. Like right now~Drew is asleep but the twins are in their cribs yelling and running around. Seems a bit off, right? Exactly my point.
I love my blog and the friends I’ve made from it. I love reading other blogs. What I don’t love is how much of a time warp blogging can be. I can easily ignore my children and their pleas for attention, the laundry that is piling up and the dishes that need to be put away for a little bit of time. But not every day and not all day long. I’ve been trying to avoid my computer a little bit more and giving my attention back to my family. Yes, I know, I blog FOR ME. I really do. I’m sure that my venting about my kids is boring to some, and that is fine with me. I blog so that I can get some things out of my head and onto “paper”. Blogging helps me unwind a bit and relax. But I have to take a small step back and take a break. I’ll still be blogging, just not every day. Maybe not even every other day, unless I’ve got something great to talk about. And maybe tomorrow I’ll feel completely different than I do today.
