I was recently asked, "do you have a blog?" to which I quickly answered NO. I was thinking about that all the next day - why would I have a blog? who the heck would want to hear what I have to say? what WOULD i say?
Then, a friend of mine shared with me that she really valued my ideas and opinions. To which I wondered - WHY? I have NO idea what I am doing most of the time and I tend to be ALL ideas and no follow through most days.
Well, I figure, if there is someone out there in the same place I am. . . and something that works for our house helps them, then maybe I can share something.
SO . . . HERE I GO . . .
Since giving up Facebook for lent, I have felt a void during my morning coffee and quiet time (which is when I would stalk, I mean check, my facebook). I have always had a bookmark folder full of blogs I have been meaning to get around to so I decided to get to it. WOW, what an eye opener this has been! There are so many amazing links, recipes and self improvement ideas out there - many of which have come from stay at home moms like me.
The stay at home thing (though I am going on 5 years now) is still somewhat new - my mother worked full time. Not that was right or wrong - just different from my current call in life. My parents had two kids 7 1/2 years apart - we have four in 6 years. The gap between my oldest and youngest is LESS than the one between my sister and I.
I have no doubts that this is what I am called to do right now - stay at home and raise our children but - I FEEL LIKE I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING! Hence the reason I use the phrase "ON THE FLY" a lot. That is pretty much how things are done around here!
