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?
