Off To a Slow Start

All week long I considered and contemplated blogging, but life has a way of telling you that "there is something more important" to be done. I'm back now.

Where my life is at right now:
-I'm 23 weeks pregnant today with Baby #2 (and quite uncomfortable from a rough night of sleep
-I'm preparing things for beginning to homeschool my son at the end of the Summer
-My younger sis came to visit for the weekend and reminded me of how much my son and I love her
-I have to read part of my talk for an upcoming retreat to the retreat team tomorrow and I don't feel ready at all!

I guess I don't have much to say right now, but if you're wondering (or at least as a "brain dump" excersice for myself), some of the things that I'll be blogging about here are:
-Raising my kids
-My faith
-Boring ol' "This is my life right now" posts

Until next time!

No Day Like Today

Welcome! This is my new blog. I could wait until something "special" happens to start it up, or until I figure out exactly what this blog will look like, or until I actually edit this first post, but why? This week I read some inspiring words written by member emylibef over at Blogher that really stuck with me,
So with much pain and heartbreak, I’ve come to the realization that it’s okay if no one reads what I write. Why? I’m not writing for anyone else. I will have a record – a concrete one – of days, months, years. However meager it may seem, I am shaping my legacy on my own terms. I can be honest. I don’t have to be afraid of offending anyone, because I’m not depending on them to read what I say. In itself, this is amazingly freeing. Whether I move on with my ideas or simply do this and nothing else, it’s okay with me. And by being myself, whatever happens, this piece of me exists. No one can pay for that.
I've tried my hand at blogging before, but for one reason or another, I've never been able to remain consistant with it. This time is different though. I am going into this with nothing to prove and nobody to impress, and that is truly freeing. So join me for the ride. Or don't. Either way, this is where I'll be.
