First, thank you for all the thoughtful comments from Tuesday’s post!!! I’m obviously not alone, and it was so helpful for me to see how other people make blogging work.
Though I think I was a bit confusing in what I wrote. I’m not taking a break from blogging right now. I’m still going to post a few times a week, visit, and try to reply. I’ll just be spending a little less time on a daily basis, taking time off whenever I need to, and not pushing myself to keep up!
I already feel much better about the changes I’ve made. Hopefully, I can stick with it.
Now, I have something much more serious to discuss:
There have been some intriguing discoveries at my house this week.
First, Evie discovered a hidden container of cottage cheese in the fridge. It was over a week expired. Later in the day, I found Mase chowing down on the cottage cheese.
Me: Mase, that’s expired!
Mase: No, that’s not expired. That’s cottage cheese.
Next, I discovered that my husband can’t be trusted! He “helped” the kids get ready to play in the front yard this week. And here we have Mase wearing a backwards shirt (as always), his younger brother’s pants (with food on them), his sister’s socks (which my husband put on him), and no coat (it was freezing!).
Sometimes I wonder if my husband does things like this on purpose so I’ll stop asking him to help me.
And last, but not least:
I discovered what my seven-year-old daughter, Dani, wants for Christmas.
Dani: (enthusiastically) Mom, I really want a punching bag because sometimes I really want to punch people when I get so mad at them, but then I could punch the bag instead.
