I took about a month off of blogging….Here’s why.
1. Newtown, CT.Â
My last blog post (before Jan. 1) was posted at midnight of December 14. Later that morning we all know what happened in the elementary school in CT. And I felt like there was nothingÂ appropriateÂ for me to say. Nothing that I should or could be written to describe the tragedy that had taken place on that day. I felt like there was nothing to say because I wasn’t going to jump on anyone’s bandwagon or political agenda. I had to leave it alone, because if it was my child, mother, sister or friend that had been killed that day I would have wanted the talking heads to drop it. So I tried to not be a talking head.
2. Christmas happened.
Even though my blogging schedule is nothing like it was before, I decided that I would take a good Christmas break to give myself some time off.
3. You can refer to Baby O as Baby Klingon.
I can’t do anything without this kid completely freaking out. NOTHING. For example, showers are a nightmare, I dread them in the morning. I get in the shower, she flips out, then crawls around the house screaming for me, literallyÂ crawlsÂ around the house crying & screaming until she can’t breathe while looking for me. She eventually makes her way back to the shower & she stands up next to the shower door & beats her hands on the door until I get out. It’s awful. And this is routine over everything, be it doing a load of dishes, trying to pick up toys, start a load of laundry or get dressed in the morning. If I’m not holding her, she is not happy. It is wearing me out!
4. If you don’t have anything nice to say, then you shouldn’t say anything at all, right?
Â That’s the rule I’ve been trying to apply. I’m working on changing my focus from ME, ME, ME & why 2012 was hard for ME & MY family, to “What can I do for others? How can I apply that little thing Jesus called the Golden Rule into my life?”
5. I am working on a new project!!!
And I don’t want to share any more than that until the official launch. It has a lot of potential to be really awesome & I want to do it right!
6. Twitter is more fun.Â
Pretty self-explanatory. If you want to find me, you can pretty much bet I’m tweeting! 🙂
Ever take a blogging break?Â
