News Flash: I haven't written a post in about 2 weeks! I've thought about it. I've even started a few posts. But zero published (except for the Thursday Blog Hop). Why is that, you may ask? Well, it's simple. I've been busy.
We were sick. Rod was sick. We went on a church trip. I'm helping plan for VBS this week. I went out of town yesterday. I have company tonight (so excited!). We've got to spend time twice with some awesome friends we hardly ever see. And, shocker, I've been running around after two little boys (who have non-stop energy).
So, when I have a free moment I'd like to, ya know...take a shower, or a nap. Maybe read a book or have a conversation with my husband. Or sometimes I'd just like to sit and do nothing but enjoy some peace and quiet. I haven't sat down much and thought, "Boy, I'd sure like to blog." Don't get me wrong. I love blogging. But here is the clincher...
Blogging is not my priority. Notice I didn't say 'first' priority. When you have a family, like most of you do, blogging is naturally not the first priority. But, for me, it's not even like 3rd or 4th on the list. I'm pretty sure Maintain Sanity is 4th on the list (where ever this illusive list is). And sometimes not blogging helps me make it from day to day in a good mood (and still have time to do a little cleaning!).
Why do I even say all this? Because I've learned to let myself off the hook! A couple times these past weeks, I've felt guilty for not blogging. Will I lose numbers? Maybe. Will people think I'm not serious about blogging? Perhaps. Oh. Well.
There I said it. Oh well....
At the end of the day, it's a blog. My family comes before the blog. When I have time and some peace of mind, I'll sit down to write. You know I always have something to say :-) Until, then...I hope this helps you let yourself off the hook too.
Go grab some sweet tea and a good book and relax. You deserve it.
