It really annoys me when bloggers blog about blogging. They'll post interesting stuff for a few weeks, disappear for a month, and then come back to blog about why they haven't been blogging and promise to blog more frequently. Repeat.
And yet, despite how dumb I think it is, here I am...blogging about blogging. Being real (hypocritical.) I just feel like I need to write after such a dry spell and I don't have anything else on my mind. So here goes...
I haven't posted since February. Five long months ago. It's not because we haven't been homeschooling or making cool discoveries. Like most moms, I've just been super busy.
I maintain a household, with all the chores and responsibilities that entails. This year I homeschooled 3 students (plus a preschooler), with all the work and driving around to classes that entails. I host a weekly park group. I frequently help with a weekly mommy-and-me music class. I'm in charge of a 2-hour Nursery (Sunday School for babies 18 months to 3 years) every Sunday. I facilitate a weekly support group for those that have loved ones in addiction. I own my own home business. Many weekends are filled with hosting family and friends for dinner and games. And I maintain a homeschooling blog.
Schedules fill up and there aren't enough hours in the day. Priorities have to be set and some things get neglected. That's life.
Lately at the end of a long day, I've tended to curl up with the computer and vege out watching Netflix. It's not a very productive use of my time, especially since there's always more dishes or laundry to do. But sometimes you just don't feel like it, ya know? Sometimes I just want mindless entertainment in place of busy-ness.
And I definitely haven't felt like blogging! But I want to get back in the saddle. I've never considered myself a "writer" but I do like to share our adventures and joys and struggles with the world.
So hopefully I'll get motivated and get a few more good posts up before the start of the new school year. If there is anything specific you would like me to blog about, or a question you'd like me to answer, please don't hesitate to let me know in the comments!
