It’s not that I don’t want to blog regularly, it’s just that I need sleep. And I need to educate my children. They also produce a vast amount of dirty laundry, dishes, and general clutter. Those things combined with a strange blogger’s block, has kept me rather silent on the blog of late.
December 1st brings with it our fun Advent calendars.
I’m afraid I also struggle with the occasional bouts of intense bloggy insecurity.
This should be the FUNNIEST blog ever!
No, wait, it should be an amazing HOMESCHOOL blog, full of resources, tips and curriculum reviews.
But don’t forget the spiritual emphasis, really the blog needs to be deep and meaningful.
And the photos, those should be stunning and creative.
What about popular? Of course, I want to have the most read and commented upon blog EVER.
That’s a lot of pressure to put on one little blog. It’s enough to send a girl scrambling for the bed covers, sneaking chocolate at an alarming rate.
Sarah was a big Advent prep helper. She put together calendars and got things ready for our Advent fun.
Thankfully none of you dear readers put those expectations on the blog, so I can just pick up the keyboard and jump back into my writing. I’ve missed you! I’ve missed the conversations and the mental challenge of crafting my posts. Frankly I’ve missed the quiet evenings when I have the house (and computer) to myself.
What about you? If you are a blogger, do you write daily? Weekly? How much time do you devote to reading other people’s blogs. If I’m not careful, the computer tries to eat up great chunks of our homeschool day, and then, not satisfied, it wants to snatch away precious family time. Greedy computer and the cyberworld it dangles before me.
David and Caedie are great friends and they were sad to see co-op come to an end last week.
It’s December 8th and I’m determined to enjoy the holiday season! I want to take pleasure in each day and savor the anticipation of Christmas, the wonder of Christ’s birth, and the joy of my family. Tomorrow is Rachel’s birthday (excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor – how did my sweet little girl become a teenager??), and the month is full of one activity after another. I’m praying for balance and a child-like joy.
