Ok, so many of you have told me you like it when I share personal stuff, especially when it’s my normal, “keeping it real” life. If you don’t like that and just want projects, you probably don’t want to read this post.
This is me being real. I’m a basket case these days. In fact, most of the time I feel like a chicken running around with my head cut off.
I’m doing all I can to keep my head afloat and I still feel like I’m drowning. Overwhelmed? Frazzled? You betcha.
It’s not anything in particular. Life is just coming at me faster than I can keep up. My baby is a sweetheart and the most mellow, sleepy baby I’ve had. I have really good kids, but they keep me busy. I used to be able to count on naptime and bedtime to craft or blog. I’m still not on a consistent naptime or bedtime yet with my 6-week old, so finding computer or craft time is difficult if nonexistent.
If I do find a spare moment, I kind of just want to sit down and relax. Maybe read a book or snatch a quick nap. Or if I’m feeling more energetic, I want to make cookies with my three older kids (ages 5, 4, and 2), or head to the park, library, or a splash pad. It’s suddenly hit me how fast my kids are growing up, and I want to make as many memories as I can with them.
There are days when I think, “What’s the point of even doing my blog anymore?”. Besides the time factor, it’s hard not to take it personal when I work hard on something, then don’t get many comments. Then I’ll see someone post something similar and they get tons of comments. Then I wonder if anyone even reads my blog or cares. That’s just me pouncing all over my insecurities when I’m down. I know I shouldn’t do that.
Many of you are so supportive of me. It makes my day when you take the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it so much. Thank you, thank you. You are awesome!
Ok, enough of my pity party. There’s really not much point to this post. My friend Char, once posted about the blog world being today’s “front porch”, where women sit together and share what’s going on in their lives. I guess that’s what I’m doing. Sharing with my friends (because I consider all of you friends) what’s going on.
I truly love my life and feel so blessed. Thank you for being part of it!
