So here's one of the many reasons I failed to start a blog years ago: I don't like to neglect my responsibilities. And once I've started something it becomes a responsibility. And you see, I am an "all-or-nothing" kind of gal. I go big or go home. No in-the-middle-wishy-washiness for me, nosiree. So once I start something I don't want to neglect it. I don't want to be one of those blogs that people find and then realize, "Oh, the last post was five years ago."
But sometimes "real life" gets in the way. This week is a perfect example. It's a short school week for my kids. It's also a week where I am preparing for a major school event (I'm a volunteer but I have a lot to do; please see above where I talk about going big) and my daughter's eleventh birthday party. (Birthday parties can be kind of elaborate around here. More on that later.) Then, of course there's the time I spend taking care of my kids and the house and the errands, not to mention time spent on Facebook and Pinterest. I've already explained the importance of Pinterest. And Facebook? Well, somebody needs to cyber-stalk my friends and acquaintances. Dear God who will do the stalking if I start slacking off? I jest, I jest. Kind of. (Okay not really.)
So this is my way of saying I won't be around for a few days. But never fear. I'll be back next week with a kick-ass post about my daughter's birthday. I know, I know. You can hardly wait.
