It was time

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!)
