Crafts, Cooking and Candid Photos.

Right.  So.

My mind has mulled over the decline of this blog for a month or two.  Reasons for the piles of silence include:

1. Not enough time. (lie.)
2. Nothing interesting to write about. (lie.)
3. No one reads what I post. (lie.)
4. Is it really worth the time? (duh.  yes.)

Clearly this is a list of lies. The grandest, most accurate reason is this little secret of mine: I desperately want what I post here to be funny, well-written, interesting and not just about my kiddos.  In addition I don't want to post for the sake of posting.  In a world of pinterest, facebook and instagram, I am still an old school typewriter girl at heart.  I am not a super-mom who can sew all my children's clothes, home school, make freezer meals for 30 days and work a full time job from home.  I take time to write.  I enjoy playing with my children.  My counter always has both clean and dirty dishes.  The floors are dingy and Mt.Laundry is sitting in my hallway.  If I have the choice to clean my home or make a rocket ship out of a cardboard box, the rocket wins every time.

I want this space to be like my home.  That means it will be covered in dust at times.  I may go a week without posting, but that doesn't mean I'm not working on it.  So.  Let's be friends again, interwebs.  You and me.  What do you say?
