So the truth is...

I loathe even hearing the word "blog" these days because I am so very extremely, ridiculously behind! I have dreaded posting for months now because I don't even know where to begin. I have done random posts over the last year or so but am just forever from being close to catching up.

But it's okay.... I tell myself.
I really have always made it a goal to keep a current life history in some way. {Journaling, 10 yr. journaling, blog booking, photo calendaring...} As the techno trends change I find myself following them. So Instagram has taken over my a good but yet "blog hindering" way. It's "instant", doable, easy, quick, not overwhelming. makes you feel creative & best of all it's fun!!

I do however, miss being able to sit down at the computer and let my little fingers just type away all the random thoughts in my head to the matching pictures I have uploaded. I will get back to it soon I promise. 
I feel honored as random & not so random people stop me in the grocery store or church or wherever & say they miss me posting. It makes me feel special & wanted & confused all at the same time.

My excuse: Life really has been nothing short of chaotic this past year. The main reasons: Having a baby, moving twice, Husband's knee surgery, teaching 2-4 piano lessons a day, Husband's new job where he works weekends :( & of course cleaning up after my two youngest CONSTANTLY ... no really it's constantly. (My little babes ate dog poop yesterday & sadly this wasn't the first time this has happened.)

{The ONLY reason I'm able to type at the moment is because both little ones are sleeping & the older 3 are gone playing or out of town.} 

Now that we just got DONE WITH celebrating my 4 BOYS birthdays (who all happen to be within a 1 month time frame), School & My sister's wedding, I feel like I can breathe a little easier. Oh Wait I almost forgot my baby brother who leaves on his mission in just over a week....

~Life is Busy. Life is Good. Blogging is in My Future...~

sounds like exciting, crazy times!

haha, i know what you mean about blogging. i've been writing lately (as in, this past week) and it's been SOOO good to just let it all out. the majority of the stuff i've been writing has turned into my personal journal, though some stuff makes it to the blog. i'll excuse you from your blogging hiatus if you'll excuse me for my lack of substantial posts. we'll both start again. :)

good to hear from you!

How I've missed your sweet blog, my friend!! I'm so glad you're trying to get back into the swing of things, but it can be so hard when life is absolutely so chaotic. No worries if it just doesn't happen. But just so you know, if it does, I'll do a happy dance in my computer chair!

Well, I miss you. I feel like a lot of people have given it up. I still love it. I haven't found instagram yet though, but I think I will always love it. So whenever you have time to get back to it, I will love hearing about your cute family. I can only imagine how busy you have been. Life seems to just get busier. I am also trying to enjoy it though. It seems like my kids are going to be grown up in a flash. Take care.

I know! Blogs are so 2011 or maybe even 2010!!!! I'm still clinging to mine all for the sake of family journaling.
I suppose if you aren't going to blog as frequently anymore than I am just going to have to plant myself in your living room more often. :)
Love you and what you have to say always.

Glad you are back. I love doing my blog because it is a real journal of our family happenings. I too, have missed your posts and I am glad you are back.
