On the fence

I've been trying to decide lately whether to keep going with this blog or not because--as the few of you still reading here have probably noticed--I'm having trouble fitting it into my life now. And part of it is also that I don't have all that much new to say lately. I'm either having a horrible time with the kids because I'm sleep-deprived and trying to do too much, or I've gotten a little rest and being home with my daughters is the very best thing I could possibly imagine doing right now.

I'm having one of those latter kinds of weeks right now, in case anyone is interested. I just spent two relaxed hours outside with Bean and Sweet P, weeding the garden, catching butterflies and frogs, trying to keep Sweet P from swallowing pebbles. It was a perfect couple of hours and just exactly how I imagined being home with kids could be in my pre-Bean daydreams. (It remains to be seen whether my inner grooviness will hold once Sister gets home from school and the daily math hysteria resumes once again, but I'll try.)

Anyways, I still can't make up my mind, but considering that my days go much better with the girls if I keep my computer time to a minimum, I may drop the blogging.

I would be sad to see you go but I understand. That is why I blog when I can. I want to stay connected to the people I have met online. You guys are sort of my lifeline and sanity.

I enjoy your subject matter even more so since I've met you and your family. I do understand what you are saying. When I look back at my blog, I feel my posts have gotten less and less interesting. I don't know if that mirrors my life or the life cycle of blogging.

That would be sad. I would miss you a lot. But I always wonder when the day will come that I will feel that way. And if it happens... what can you do? I'd really want to keep in touch with you.

I would miss you something terrible....but I DO understand. I like your blog, and your stories about the girls...esp. since I know you and have met them, ya know?....But, life does have to come first...good luck with that decision!! ;)

well, you know how horrible i am at keeping up with my blog. . . so i completely understand why you're fence sittin' at the moment. i know how the computer can totally become a time suck and how it can really get in the way of being in the moment with kids . . .which i reckon is why i'm so lousy at posting - charlie and theo are both pretty demanding right now! whatever you decide will certainly be the right decision. besides, we can all keep up with you on spoonflower, right?
hope to see you soon!!

What??? Surely blogging can turn into a relaxing time, when the kids are asleep or something, right?

But I would certainly miss you, and hearing about your kids, and the crafts. I mean come on. You taught me how to teach my daughter how to make REAL bean bags!

I completely get that. I will miss your writing. And your swoon-worthy food descriptions. I tell my friends to go back and read your December archives from a couple of years ago. My goodness--the food!

Take care.

I enjoy visiting your blog, but you could always pick it up again later, or even start a new blog. My friend Cal has written several blogs, each with a different theme. One was his "quest for enlightenment" blog, another his "happiest person in the universe" blog, etc. He stops the blog when he feels his inspiration is no longer there.

Just because I understand doesn't mean I wouldn't be sad.

I definitely hope you'll keep with it; I love reading your blog! But you've got to do what's best for you and your sanity.
