I’ve been struggling with transition adjustment. The transition from one school year to the next, also known as summer time, has been one where I’ve been busy with mothering, freelance writing, reading, and thinking.
I admire those people who keep on blogging no matter what. You know, the ones who take the time to even blog about whether or not they can blog in the midst of whatever is going on. If you’ve read things here, you know I blog, then things may get a little quiet, then I blog again.
Part of it is that I have a lot of interests that don’t always apply to what I try to focus on here, which is my mothering and writing as it relates to my mothering. I also talk some about the writing I do freelancing. However, if you follow me on Twitter you see how busy I am doing other things. Sometimes I think I’m a better tweeter than blogger, but that’s just me.
Am I giving up? No.
I’m just finally taking the time to let the rest of the world know what many of my friends already understand. Living life takes precedence over writing about life for me.
That said here’s what you can expect from me in the coming months and into next year because I’m counting on the fact that the Mayans just ran out of room on that slab of rock, and if their civilization were still thriving they’d be carving a new one to unveil come this December.
- My youngest is starting preschool.
- My oldest is in third grade.
- I have a few books to review.
- I have some family adventures planned.
- I’m also working more on my freelance writing.
And if all that wasn’t enough, there are two other blogs I claim: Blood and Candlelight, where I indulge in my dark creative tangents, and the Dark Jane Austen Book Club, where I indulge in my avid reading of literature, Jane Austen, mash-ups, and writing related to all that.
I’m always mothering and always writing. I apologize it if doesn’t always show up here, but I hope you check in on occasion, or subscribe and never miss a thing!
