so sorry, sweet blog.

You have every right to be mad at me.  I have completely ignored and abandoned my blog, and I feel sad about it.

Things have been a little upside down here lately.  Not bad, just different.  Kacie, our youngest, started Kindergarten and everything changed.  My kids were all of a sudden...big.  I expected lazy days to read 10 million books and have a clean house every day and study and sew and blog and have Barefoot Contessa caliber dinners and lunch with friends and volunteer and have an overwhelming sense of great personal accomplishment at the close of each day, and it just hasn't turned out that way.  go figure.  There's just so much to do.

I've been a little surprised by how hard it's been for me to make this transition.  It's just being a different kind of mommy now and I didn't think it would take getting used to for me, but it has.  It's still about the kids, and always will be, but now there is this element of me in there that has thrown me for a loop.  Now what do I do?  Now who do I be?  They're growing up, dang.  I really didn't expect these growing pains.

Oh I love my kids.  My crazy wall climbing ninja children.

So forgive me while this dear blog waits for me to get it together.  I will share my life and my makings with you...eventually.

I think that's the theme word of my life.  I may put it on a necklace...

eventually.

I've also been struggling with life changes...and not blogging as much. It's ok. Sometimes we need some space to figure things out. I've been feeling discombobulated since August, and I still can't seem to pull things together. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :)

there are always these transitions in life to figure out.
I am still trying to "find myself" in retirement.
Love you sweety

Making a new normal is always so hard. I'm actually dreading these days that you are referring to. I'm thinking of you and sending you hopeful dreams. Love you.
