It's about time

I'm not even going to bother to make excuses about the amount of time that has passed since my last post. As the saying goes: time marches on, and regardless of what attempts I make to slow it down, it persists in doing so.

Just a few short months ago I was anticipating our Summer school break, impatient to get my modest garden planted, and dreaming of getting a few
non-school related projects accomplished. While I did many of these things, it all seems to have passed in a bit of a blur, one day seemlessly blending into the next. *sigh*

On the other hand, I
do love the Fall/Autumn season. The temperatures cooling (hopefully soon) the yellows, orange, and browns. Pumpkins least at my house:) I think it's becoming an obsession.

And of course it's time to go back to school. But that's another post...

My biggest hindrance to posting the last few weeks has been a feeling of being...unsettled. I'm not sure I can translate what I mean by that

While I am under no allusions as to my having anything other than a regular run-of-the-mill "mommy" blog, there are so many other things going on... truly unsettling things. Things that I start to blog about, but then have second thoughts. Being that they're not mommy bloggish material;)

My life and family has been blessed in so many ways, especially in the last few weeks. Within my little world, everything is happy and serene. And sometimes it's easy to think that this is the only thing that truly matters.

And yet there's a part of me that insists on pulling my head out of the sand, and looking at all the things going on in the world around me, and wondering what it will be like when my children are grown...and wondering if I'm doing enough in so many ways.

I never know how to end these sort of posts, so I'm simply going to end with the promise of a "catching up" post very soon~

I've been missing you, but I figured you were just busy. I know you have a friend with a sick child coming sometime soon, and I think that your area starts school after Labor Day.

You do realize, don't you, that this is YOUR blog, and you can write about whatever you want to? It doesn't matter if it's mommy-ish or not. (And you do have another blog for political posts!)

Bloggish. Thats a good word.:)

Yes, I know Nikki (regarding the other blog). I keep almost posting there as well, but hesitate on so many things. At the risk of sounding paranoid, I have to say that I have grown a little leery of putting some things out on the web. With freedom of speech issues already being questioned, I want to be careful about what's attached to my name. Like I said, it probably sounds paranoid:)

As for my friend from Alaska, it keeps getting delayed. They're trying to get all her appointments coordinated. So we're playing the waiting game right now.

Mrs.Darling: I thought it was a good word myself:)

I understand being leery. I'm keeping a little quiet myself for the same reasons.

Mrs. C said...

I understand. There are many things I think about and decide not to post as well.

I've missed you around these parts, and I'm glad to see you back! I can certainly understand taking a break from blogging, but know that we'll be here to read/listen regardless of your topic. =) It doesn't have to fit into a particular category of blog, you know. You can just say whatever is on your mind. We might agree or we might disagree, but that's the beauty of is yours to say what you want. =)

Well, hello there darlin'! I have missed you too! I haven't mentioned it much either, but we all feel the same way....I am sure.

Is your garden all done by now or are you still harvesting? I love Fall too......maybe it's because I am an October baby or that our anniversary is in that month....?!

Glad to see you! Blessings and Hugs!!!!

I know how you feel. I fell off the bloggy bandwagon when summer began and I'm just having a hard time getting back on.
