In the over ten years I have kept this blog, I have never been this very far behind - two whole months. Actually, more than two months. And what has happened in those two months? Moving into a new house, endless projects, unpacking - and that is not to mention the rechartering and organizing Cub Scouts in our ward. Oh, and writing and being in charge of our Primary Program. Just a few things.
And on top of all these things, I have been dealing with some hard parenting things. All three of my kids have been on the roller coaster ride that has been the past year and half, and it has been hard. And the baggage they have carried along with it is very real. And very hard. As a mother, I have been desperate to help them, and balance it all with the things that I have to do, should do, and need to do. And so I am left with not a minute for what I want to do for me.
And thus we see, why my blog has been sorely neglected. I will get it up to date though. I have faith. I am finally emerging from all the chaos and crazy, and for the first time in almost two years, I feel like I can breathe again. So maybe things aren't perfect - they never are, but they are getting back to being comfortable. The stress of the past couple years has pulled us, yanked us, and tugged us about, but I am slowly pulling together all the lose strings of our lives, and weaving them back into the tapestry of what we know and love. Things are finally coming together.
