Daily Blogging Alert

On a complete whim, I have decided to blog every day for a month like I did in August 2013. Why? Mostly because I miss blogging. I miss making the time to blog, miss the satisfaction of writing, recording our days, and interacting with you all here. So basically, all of the reasons I enjoy blogging are the reasons that I miss it. Go figure.

I can feel myself pulling away from the blog world a bit: hardly reading and commenting on other blogs anymore (the horror!), putting it last on my never-ending To Do list, preferring the quick fix of Instagram instead. And that is all fine and good since there have been plenty of times in the past seven plus years of blogging when it just sort of fell off my radar for awhile. I could use the 'busy' excuse, citing reasons that I'm neglecting to post (like having three kids, a part time job, taking care of the house, and SLEEP) but everyone is busy. And not everyone blogs, I know, but *I* want to keep blogging. It's never going to be my number one priority and it never has been, but I'm quite fond of this little corner of the internet and hope you don't mind reading my ramblings.

So basically, I want to see if I can get my over-sharing mojo back on this baby. Even if the number of comments on my (infrequent) posts prove that not many people make time to comment over here, I'm still going to write every day for a month. Because it's never been about the comments anyway, although I do love the two way street of communicating via blogs. It's about documenting, pushing the pause button on this whirlwind season of life, and paying attention to the details that will surely pass me by in record speeds. That will probably happen anyway, but if I blog about the details maybe I can remember 1 out of 100 things that happen in a day.

My random, self-imposed rules: I can draft topics and write bits of posts in advance, but will attempt to publish one post per day throughout the month of April. Sometimes it might consist of a single picture with some mumbo jumbo about loving my kids (i.e. Instagram-style), sometimes it might be lengthy and deep in thought (don't hold your breath!), and other times it will probably be totally random and hodge podged. Maybe if I get desperate I can just link to some previous posts of mine that I had forgotten about but enjoy reading again.

If you have ideas on topics for me, let me know!

You can be assured these three characters will be front and center most of the time. Did I ever share this picture over here? No? Because it's a new favorite, complete with three (mostly) genuine smiles. Not sure how I got so lucky to be their mom.

    1. Yes, blog. What I love about my own blog is that it captures little nonsense I would never otherwise remember. I often don't have a lot to say either, but bits and pieces suffice. I look forward to your daily entries. love, Val

  10. Go you! I have periods of time where I write a lot and then times when I get tired of it. I think it's normal when you've been in the blog world as long as us old hags have ;)

  11. Also, that article? Whoa. I just looked at Henry the other night as he slept, and I came into our room and said to Dave how it kills me to think about how quickly he will be going to college and leaving us. I mean, I KNOW he's only 5 1/2, but it'll go so fast!! And it will be hard and sad and I just don't even want to think about. These years so short in the scheme of our lives, these years of having our whole little family under one roof. So precious, this time.

  12. I have been reading your blog anonymously for 6 years now!!!! WOW! I was always wondering if you could write a post on being done with having kids. For example, do you feel like your family is complete, or do you think you will always still have that yearning, but 3 was your number? I feel like I want one more because I do not feel complete, but then at the same time, I don't know if I will ever feel complete.

    1. Hi, Rachel! Funny you should mention this topic because I just drafted a few thought on this exact same one. It's a complex thought in my head so the post will probably not be all that satisfactory, but it is one I want to write!!

  13. Yay! I've missed your posts! So excited for this month!
