Things I've Learned about Myself while away from Blogging...

1) I need outlets. If I don't blog then I bombard my poor friends (the ones I see in person anyway) with all of my craziness. If I can put a little of it out into blogland then there seems to be not quite as much dumped on them. I'm sharing the love so to speak.

2) Just because I've never met majority of you in person doesn't mean that I don't depend on you. This is my version of couch time (and let's be honest, we could all use a little couch time at one time or another).

3) What the heck else am I going to do with my downtime (downtime: you know: that time at midnight when everyone else is in bed and you get a few minutes to do something for yourself)?

4) I need a place that is all mine and not another persons, because let's face it: I'm a mother and I don't even get to go to the bathroom by myself anymore.

5) Yes I feel guilty sometimes for blogging and not cleaning, cooking, taking care of the hubby, taking care of the kids, and on and on, but I miss my blogging friends and all of those things will be okay if I give myself a few minutes a day to do something that is fun and nice for me.

In Conclusion: Blogging is good stuff, good stuff!

Wow- I feel like I could have written this post word for word! That is exactly how I feel, especially lately! It is so nice to have blogging friends to depend on! Glad your back!

Keri said...

I agree with every one of these!!! It's the whole balance thing I am working on the most.....

Glad to have you back!

♥Amber Filkins♥ said...

Oh yes, balance. One of those things you'd think we'd have down pat, since we ARE mothers and we juggle everything. But alas, it's a process.

I'm glad that you're finding the balance in blogging. It's sometimes a hard thing to do.

Oh!! I just realized you're the blog that went on that vacation through all my old (and current) stomping ground! :) I grew up all around Southern Utah and we live in Grand Junction now. I believe I posted some comments on your Moab part and others...
Anyways, hope you had a really fun time!

I also saw your C25K notes on your sidebar. I LOVE this program!! I actually posted about it awhile ago here:

Check it out if you're interested. I'm happy to have found you.

Lindsay said...

ahh yes we all need a little down time. I love being able to decompress on the blog and give my friends a break :-) Glad your back :-)

Jen said...

Well said - I agree with everything, esp. the last part! There are not enough hours in the day for everything, and there needs to be a balance :)

Wonderful post. I think you summed up why we all blog. It is just a great way to connect with other people. But also love that there is no strings attached and also you can chat at anytime of the day. I love how you don't have to make sure your schedule match, you just get together and bond. I am glad you are back in the blog land.

Bethany said...

Completely agree! Every once in a while I think about stopping blogging, but I really do enjoy it :)
