Okay, so if you read my resolutions for the year, you will recall one of them was to blog more and blog better. Then if you read the post right underneath this you will see it was over a month and a half ago. Here's why:
1) I'm busy... and I mean busy... like some days I don't have time to eat busy (too bad I'm not losing any weight!) Between my three grad classes this semester, having a preschooler in a school 17 miles south, a first grader in school here and teaching at a college 17 miles north, I spend a lot of time driving. And then there's 8 month old Baby H, who has recently decided he doesn't want to nap more than 30 minutes a day. And to top it off, there has been a lot to get done for my wedding reception in April.
2) Blogging takes away from fulfilling my other resolutions. If I clear out time to blog, I am losing time that I could be spending playing with my kids, spending time with my husband or working on school work. Usually by about 9pm every night David and I are passed out on the couch, attempting to watch something on DVR. Today I just happened to have a few minutes while Baby H is asleep and the kids are playing together, I'm in between loads of laundry and my school work is done. David is working 12 hours (gotta plow those snowy roads) so I won't get to see him until 7pm. Today is a snow day for both my kids and I as all our schools were canceled.
3) I don't have much to say. Really. Yes, I'm busy, yes I have thoughts, but I just haven't felt like sharing them. I have had a couple annoying things come up that I would love to rant about, but because they involve people who know people who read this or people who might read this, I will refrain from airing my dirty laundry on those subjects. I haven't felt passionate about anything enough lately to talk about it.
There you have it, the reason for my absence. I am going to attempt to write another blog after this and postdate it, plus I need to get a bunch of reviews in, but I should probably get to those dishes soon... we'll see what happens.
