A few weeks ago I went through some old blog posts about my kids. I sat there for an hour or so, just reading old posts and chuckling to myself. There were so many things I had forgotten. So many things I would have never remembered if I hadn’t blogged about it. Then I started thinking about how I don’t really blog anymore. *sigh* I don’t really have any record of the past couple of years and that is so sad to me! I want these memories. I don’t want them to fade off into nothing. I feel like I owe it to myself and I owe it to my kids. So, I have a new resolve.
I shall blog.
So I sat down to blog. But so many things have happened since my last post! I want to tell you about all of them! Like what we did last summer. And how we survived the apartment. And how the new house turned out. And how I feel about moving. And I want to tell you every detail about my cute baby Jillian. And tell you all about how Aidan loves piano. And how Mason steals my heart. And a million, bajillion other things. But darn it, every time I think about it I get overwhelmed. So. Much. To say. I feel totally overwhelmed.
So this is me, making an effort. I want to do this. But I can’t put so much pressure on myself. I’ll blog about one thing at a time, once a week or so. I will not feel guilty for not writing about everything. And I will not feel guilty about actually taking the time to blog. That was a HUGE reason I stopped. I was feeling like there were so many other things to do that were better than this. But I realized the past couple of weeks that this really IS important. And not so much for others to read it, but for me. I want this for me.
Let’s do this thing.
