I’m Back….Maybe

I have said goodbye to facebook for awhile. It seemed like I spent my time on there looking at pictures of puppies and kittens doing silly things or reading 500 status updates a day from the same people. Not that I don’t care about the people but…..well, I guess I don’t care what they are doing 500 times a day.  I figure I will pick this back up and that way people can read about us if they want to. But it does give me an outlet to exhale. In case you missed it I am home with the girls now and teaching history online. For the most part I enjoy how and what I am teaching. I am just trusting God to provide each semester. I like having the little extra and not having to worry about what we would do in an emergency. I also like to take vacations 🙂 That is my selfish part.

I’m sure that most of you know that last year was really rough. I’m in a weird place trying to get use to life as it is now. Some days are better than others. I am so grateful for my little family. There is no time to drown in self-pity. I am grateful for our wonderful church and the opportunities God has provided. I have met some amazing people who care enough to pick up the phone every now and then just to ask how I am. I know they genuinely care and I care about them.

I want to be more personal in my life. Liking someone’s status is not enough for me anymore. If I care about you I want you to know that I care. I want you to see, hear and feel that I care. Life is a journey and honestly right now I am not exactly sure where I am or where I am going. But even though I feel it sometimes, I know that I am not alone.

Raise Your Hand if You are the Worst Blogger Ever!

Why am I so horribly bad at blogging? My daughters are amazing and I have a hundred hilarious stories I could tell you but I don’t. I’m going to chalk it up to being lazy, and facebook. It is quicker to post a one liner there. I want to be like Julie from “Julie and Julia” who gets rich and famous from her blog. Probably not in the cards right? I think that I am probably to the point where no one even bothers to check this thing away. Here is my test statement. Sad but true event…today at Lowe’s Mattie said, “This is not good, this sucks.” I am taking full responsibilty for this and will now have a filter over everything I say. Once again I am going to try to get better at keeping everything posted.
