So, what have I been doing lately?
1. Taking care of a temporarily crippled dog.
2. Visiting with Mom and Dad, who are home right now!
3. Listening to this:
4. Reading this:
5. Cooking from this:
6. Doing the usual laundry, dishes, etc. (ad nauseam).
We are now up to speed. My life is so exciting.
One thing we have not been doing is homeschooling! I guess this year our school is getting a summer vacation. The girls have been having fun swimming, having play dates, and doing the summer reading program at our local library.
I have been thinking about my little blog, and how much I have missed having a place to vent my thoughts, share my ideas, and generally chronicle our lives for the whole world to read (eeekkkk!), and I have come to some conclusions:
~ I am going to be more organized in the format of my blogging. I need a list. I just do.
Mondays: Menu Plan Monday/recipes
Tuesday: Simple Woman's Daybook
Fridays: Thrifty FunSaturday: Random!
Sunday: Bible-related posts
Do you love how I actually schedule when to be random? So? Don't judge me.
~ I like blogging because I miss writing. My favorite part of college was all the papers I had to write. I enjoyed it immensely, the way it made me think more critically, focus on one thing (being at home is a lesson in multi-tasking), and seeing the beautiful fruit of my labors (being a homemaker often feels like an exercise in futility). I love what I do now, but this gives me a place to think, be, share, and learn.
And be random.
At the appointed time, anyway.
