I’m titling this post “Time” for so many reasons.
It’s “time” for me to update my blog. I know. We didn’t fall off the face of the planet, I promise! I’ve just have no “time” and so many other things have taken priority over the ol’ blog.
It seems like the “time” of blogging is winding down. Or at least family blogs. I still read every blog post written by my closest family and friends, but it seem like, overall, most of us are posting a lot less. Not sure if that’s because we are all getting busier as we add more children/grandchildren, or if blogging is just getting less popular. I think I need to keep doing it, though, since it’s really my only regular (ha!) method of journaling right now. That, and facebook. Does anyone know if you can get a printout of all of your facebook status updates since the beginning of time??
My “time” is very stretched right now. Between taking care of my family’s needs, chauffeuring kids around every day, working out, teaching HypnoBirthing classes, attending births as a doula, singing in various choirs, hanging out with friends and family, catching up on TV shows I’ve missed, cloth diapering, laundry, housecleaning, teaching piano, SEO writing, completing my doula coursework, church obligations, and me time, I am SWAMPED! Does anyone else feel this way? Some days I feel like I am drowning. I have so many things on my mental “to-do” list that I don’t even know where to begin. Those days are the worst because I get so overwhelmed I just sit and play Candy Crush and get nothing done. Sad, I know.
I’m ready for some more “time” this summer. I won’t have to do as much chauffeuring or singing, and hopefully things will slow down a bit. I’ve planned a lot of fun things to do with my kids this summer. I’m going to get a zoo membership and enroll Kaisa in dance and Everett in karate. We also have our Seven Peaks passes. Nathan and I have been planning a lot of other fun things to see and do around Utah that we’ve always wanted to experience. It should be really fun!
It’s about “time” for another trip to Disneyland. Nathan and I have told the kids that they have to earn it. We have a jar in the kitchen that is the “Disneyland jar” and they have to fill it with marbles in order to earn their trip. We’ll see if that happens. I hope it does because I soooooo want to take Harrison to Cars Land! He will JUST DIE!!!
I’m also feeling it’s “time” to start thinking about baby number four. I want to have one more baby, but I’m scared. I feel like a juggler who is barely keeping up with three balls and someone wants to throw in a fourth ball. It freaks me out a little and I think all the balls might just fall on the floor. But I don’t want to wait too much longer because I want baby #4 to feel included with the other children growing up. We’ll see how we feel at the end of the summer, but I’m thinking baby #4 will make her (hopefully!) appearance sometime in 2014.
Well, that’s all for now. It’s “time” for bed. More updates are coming, with pictures too!
