I'm a slacker. There...I've said it.
I'm trying desperately to keep up with my blog and I am failing.
To be honest, while I love blogging and at times it is what keeps me going in this crazy whirlwind life of mine, it is has also become a thorn in my side.
I feel pressure to keep up with it.
While I'm watching all my favorite tv shows, I'm thinking, "I really should be blogging right now". When I'm playing Candyland for the 10th time in an hour with my kids, my mind is screaming, "You have so many blogs to still comment on".
As I'm cooking dinner for my family, I'm going over the day's events in my head and piecing together a funny, entertaining blog post in my head. While I'm listening to Cole and Bella practice their reading skills at bedtime, I'm wondering, "How much longer is this book because I really need to be blogging".
The point is I haven't been truly PRESENT in awhile. As much as I enjoy blogging, as much as I need to blog to keep my sanity, it's costing me quality time with my family.
Cole and Bella's 6th birthday is on Saturday and we're throwing a HUGE party for them. I have a Super Mario Brothers and a Hannah Montana guitar cake to make....I have to get our house clean enough to the point where I won't die of embarrassment if someone opens up the laundry room door.
Most importantly, I need to focus on these priorities and not be a million miles away, mentally.
Blogging has been an amazing escape for me...it's a place where I can pour my heart and soul out with no repurcussions. And it's a wonderful place to connect with other people, bloggers or not, to comfort me in knowing I'm not all alone on this adventure called motherhood.
Needless to say, I'll be taking a break from blogging this week so I can put 100% of myself into planning an incredible birthday bash for my oldest babies, while still having difficulty wrapping my brain around the fact that they are going to be 6 years old.
Wasn't it just yesterday that I was excitedly calling and e-mailing friends and family to share the happy news that I was pregnant with twins?!
And in the time that I just wrote this, I received a call from the preschool to come get Garrett, who appears to be ill.
Life is getting in the way of my blogging....and that's okay with me, for now. Hope you all understand.
