I can't guarantee it will be of any substance though. Hubs reminded me last night that it's been a while since I've blogged. This morning my friend, Jessi, also mentioned that my blog has been quiet lately. So here I am, trying to write something worth reading.
To be honest, nothing has struck me as blogable lately. Life has been fairly low key. Not a bad thing! I'm sure the 3 ring circus will return soon. Hubs is going out of town this weekend so I'm sure I'll have plenty of blogable moments for you next Monday.
One thing did strike me last night as a potential blog topic. Hubs and I were cleaning the kitchen last night and the flowers that he got me for our anniversary were ready to go to flower heaven. As I pulled them out of the vase, I realized I hadn't really enjoyed them. I hadn't stopped to look at them or smell them. [Insert "stop and smell the roses" references here.] Now they were withered and dried. I was sad to throw them away. I felt guilty for taking them for granted.
Of course, this made me thing of other things I take for granted or don't enjoy enough in my life. My kids and Hubs were at the top of that list. I'm constantly struggling to find that balance that we all seek. The balance between kids, relationships, and household chores. I feel like I'm just getting by in all areas but not really excelling at anything. If anyone has the secret to doing it all, I'm all ears! If I could figure out a way to live on no sleep, I might be able to get to half of the things on my to do list.
Bored yet? I warned you!
