On the docket

I didn’t know that being a mommy-t0-two would be so time consuming.

Seriously, I didn’t anticipate how few minutes in the day I have to indulge in “me time.”  (And that isn’t a complaint; I love putting my children’s needs first.)

One of the things that has fallen by the wayside as I learn the steps to this dance that is my mother-life right now, sadly, is my blog.  And as much as I miss interacting with you, dear reader, I also am missing the posts for selfish reasons.  I use this blog so much as a family journal, and a year from now, I’m going to see that 2010 – such a big year for us – is sadly lacking in the documentation category.

So, in an attempt to hold myself accountable (though, yeah, me and goal-meeting?  Not so much of that going on around here lately), here are some of the posts I hope to knock out before the holidays:

  • 30 x 30 recap/closing
  • Halloween decorations
  • Halloween party
  • Seth’s first “report card”
  • My recent love affair with a new online shopping site
  • The bump that will not go away on Seth’s head
  • our getaway to Vegas
  • Nonna’s fall trip to TN
  • Seth’s birthday party 
  • Family pictures
  • Balsmeyer trip to TN
  • Erin’s nursery – with new wall art additions
  • Girls’ Night Out adventures
  • Erin’s milestones thus far (they are coming fast and furious!)

Honestly, there are dozens more that, embarrassingly, go all the way back to the county fair in July, salmon fishing in August, and Labor Day festivities.  And maybe they’ll get posts, and maybe they won’t.

But everybody keeps telling me to make time for myself, and what I love, and this blog is one of those things I love, so….

Here’s to carving out some time for this momma to put her Writer Chic hat back on.

Blogging is definitely way down on my list of priorities. I'm glad you're enjoying life off the computer though Monica! And when you get a minute to post, we will enjoy that too. :)
