Yep, sure was. Time to update this blog, change the layout, and go through ALL my past posts. Yep all of them. This has been an ongoing project now for about a month or longer. I tried several new blog templates/layouts and finally found one I like. I’m still customizing it but hopefully it should be all done soon.
Going through all my posts dating back to 2006 was, well, good and bad. Reminiscing a lot, realizing how far I’ve come since then and how much things have changed. Some posts brought tears to my eyes, some made me laugh and some kind of made me a little angry (so I deleted those ones, ha!). When I first started my blog I was unhappy in the relationship I was “stuck” in, or at least I felt stuck. A lot of my posts sounded happy to everyone else but reading them again resurfaced the hurt I was masking at the time. Blah. I’m not going to get into all that, but I do have to say that it feels like a lifetime ago, and I’m extremely thankful for what I have now.
But now I am back into the world of blogging. I have been back for a bit now but I’ve been writing a lot for Homeketeers. That and managing our business Animal Quest, and of course raising our 1 year old 🙂 Busy busy! My computer time is mostly limited now to evenings once Ava is in bed, which is anywhere from 7-8pm. I’ve been staying up really late the past few weeks so I know I’m not getting enough sleep, and I’ve been so exhausted during the day. Gotta stop these late nights! Soon, yes soon.
I will sign off for tonight as it is, of course, quite late here. I really was going to try to go to bed early tonight, but so much for that idea!
I leave you with this photo of my sweet girl. She’s really into maracas right now. (a great Target $1 bin find! woo!)
