Here I am!! Writing a post!!!!!! Why can't I just pop in and touch base - I have procrastinated writing on my blog for the following reasons (of which I am going to try very hard to overcome):
1-I feel my posts need to be entertaining, and a lot of my life isn't very exciting, you know.. laundry, dishes, etc.. lol.. A mom's job.. BUT it CAN be full of joy - that is the key! To find JOY in the journey, right??
2-I always want to have some sort of a freebie for you all, to let you know how much I care!! But those will come, my posts don't need to wait until I have one done, does it-- not sure why I always feel like it does!? lol!
3-I have tried and tried and tried to find the color of my @%^&#@ living room paint so I could answer you dear ladies that asked about it, and it is lost in the abyss of our garage and the myriad of projects we have going on, so I promise when I find it, I will let you know!!!
4-My time is never my own. There is ALWAYS someone needing something, hungry, tired, something to do, a mess/disaster that needs cleaning up, something to design, etc, etc... But I know I need to take a few minutes every morning and just touch base with ME and express my gratitude for the many wonderful blessings in my life! :)
5-I am a huge time waster online, and that is going to stop!! I WILL have an agenda when I am on the computer and that will be 1-touching base with this blog, 2-updating my Facebook (if you would like a friend on Facebook, my profile link is http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1060066132&ref=name 3- answering W&W CS emails, 4- and of course designing!!!
I am sure there are many other reasons for my absence on this dear blog of mine, but I will stop there. Having said all that, I am also renewing my commitment to My Project 365, and going to journal my life through a picture a day. So... todays picture:
Nerd day at school today! :) Owen was so excited and worked hard to get his hair to stand up in the back, while Sam was a little nervous at not being 'cool,' lol! But they both went off happy and rarin' to go! I can't wait to hear how it went!
As a sidenote, I got up this morning and felt very inadequate and like I was failing at not getting everything done that I wanted to. I have always felt like I am a jack of all trades, master at none. How can I be a mom to four boys, housekeeper, cook, AND design all the things I have in my head that are just screaming to come out? I see so many new kits out there and wonder how in the world these ladies have the time! It is killing me not doing a Halloween kit, but alas, I have had to start my holiday/winter collection for the Digital Artists Magazine and have had to skip The Ol' day of Trick'or'Treating kit this year. I have seen such cute Halloween kits out there and want to cry! Just wish there were more hours in a day!! How does one do it all without just giving up? lol.. If you have the answer, please let me know!!
Well, off for now to... you guessed it... do some cleaning, take kids to the dentist (ack, after all the Halloween candy this year already!) and other wonderfully exciting things! If you are still here, thanks for listening, and I will ttys!!
