I get it.
You want to know where I am. Well, I'm here, I'm just not blogging.
In the past few weeks I have done a lot of thinking about my life and all that encompasses that life. I have decided that my life is busy. Too busy to enjoy and I need to scale back.
I'm sorry, girlies, but the computer is a black hole of gigantic time-sucking proportions for me. Between visiting all of you wonderful women and e-mail and WTM message boards, which I no longer visit, I could easily spend *gulp* 5 hours a day on the computer.
That's five hours away from my children, Five hours that the laundry does not get done. Five hours that no one is being read to. Five hours that I don't read my Bible. Five hours that I don't take care of the urgent pressing matters like personal hygiene. Five hours later and then, "Hey! How come there's no dinner?"
So I said, No more.
I truly, from the depths of my soul wish that I could balance it all out, but right now, I just can't. I have toyed with the idea of just shutting down my blog, but that doesn't feel right. And then I don't post and Melissa, Dy and Andie leave me hilarious comments and I feel guilty for ignoring them.
This blog has afforded me some wonderful raltionships as well as a tremendous amount of encouragement, laughter and plain old fun. I love the idea of keeping a daily blog like so many of you do but I admit I lack the self-control to step.away.from.the.computer.
I wish I could pop in and tell you the funny story about science. Like the night I told the boys to tell Kevin what we learned that day in science. I said, "Boys, tell Daddy about Uranus."
And John said, "It's a gas giant."
I swear, we about died laughing.
I lack the ability to prioritize my time.
So there it is. My heart on my sleeve.
I will be back when I work out my time management issues. In the meantime don't be surprised if I pop in to your blogs every now and again.
