Where I’ve been…

Well, long time no writey! I think my last post was about October last year. About that time, I got really overwhelmed with life in general and being a working mom/wife in particular. I don’t know if it was the upcoming holidays or just general anxiety that led to tunnel vision. Perhaps it was a good thing I took a little break from blogging (even though I was enjoying it). The November/December time is crazy, and it’s hard to squeeze all the fun, seasonal activities and traditions in when you’re busily crafting up a witty blog post for whomever might stop on by to read.

I know that we seem to have made it almost through the worst season of the year, winter. After a lot of thinking about blogging, social media, and my time. This thought led me to delete – deactivate more or less since facebook is like the mafia and you’re never truly out! – my facebook account and instagram. The instagram was reinstated after this weekend’s bout of insanely miserable flu. You gotta have something to do when you lie in bed for a 24 hour period more or less. Lots of perusing amongst other blogs, led me to the conclusion that blogging can be and should be fun! I decided to write again. This time I’m going to approach it more as fun for me and less scholarly. For example, I’m not a trained nutritionist, chef, or personal trainer. The only training I have is as a sister, daughter, wife, mother, teacher, gym-goer, sporadic runner, dog owner, short-order cook, and extremely easy crafter. My blog should be mine and about me, what I know. I’m going to use this blog to collect memories, catalog ideas, and throw in some cute pictures. Then, I’ll share them up. So what we’ve been up to is…
