Chuck E Cheese, the flu, and a break

So, before I ever wrote a post, I followed a bunch of other blogs. And from time to time I would read a post that said, “Wow, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in so long!” Or, “I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I posted!” Or something like that.
And I always thought….really? I had no idea they had missed a post!

Now I’m in their position. I haven’t posted in a while, and I feel this silly inexplicable urge to explain myself. As if anyone has noticed I’ve been “gone” from blogland lol.

It began when my kids and I caught a yucky flu bug a couple of weeks ago at Chuck E Cheeses. No surprise there, right? I mean the strange thing is when you come back from the Chucksters and everyone is still healthy.

And then when the household returned to normalcy and I had the chance to work on bloggy stuff again,…I just…didn’t. Didn’t want to, so I didn’t. I mean, I’m not under obligation to post, but the fact that I felt obligated made me rebel. I have a mile wide little streak of contrariness that makes me, for example, put down my pen when the professor would say, “write this down…” during a lecture.

I will decide if what you have to say is worth writing down thankyouverymuch.

Likewise, when I felt like I had to keep up with this little blog, I balked (even though it was all in my head).

Instead I’ve been spending more time knitting in the evenings. Baking with my kids and not stressing about taking pictures. Treasuring the little extra moments of time with my oldest as I know they will nearly disappear once soccer and school start in a couple weeks.

But now enough time has passed that I miss it. After all, I blog because I like to! I don’t imagine I will post as regularly or frequently as I was. And if life gets crazy and I don’t post for periods of time that’s ok with me. Hopefully what I have to say will be interesting enough for ya’ll to keep up with me : )

  1. We all can’t be The Pioneer Woman or Martha Stewart (besides they have teams once they get ooo la la famous right?) Blog when you want because then it’s from the heart and honestly those are the best blogs to read. As a Grandma it does my heart good to know you put time with your kiddos before the blogosphere. Life is short. Spend it with the ones you love the most.

    And fist bump right back atcha little man !
