Every time I think about this blog that song flashes through my mind. It amazes me how 'once important' things can be replaced by other 'now important' things. Each time I find a minute to get on the computer I now will go directly to Pinterest. Then Facebook. Then, every few days, to Yahoo. Then, once a week or two, now I will come to the blog. I am, in no way saying that Pinterest or Facebook are worthy opponents to journaling/blogging. They just seemed to have moved up on my 'priority' list.
Heck, I am pinning some pretty amazing stuff! And find myself trying all sorts of tips and tricks with the house cleaning/laundry I dread doing. And most of the stuff I do try, works and ends up saving a bunch of money. And I feel smarter and better at my housekeeping job. AND my house is cleaner then ever.
I also find myself day dreaming, and night dreaming about my "dream home". SO many cute, practical, 'why-the-heck-didn't-I-think-of-that' ideas for the future. I am looking forward to the time in our lives when we can buy some property and build that dream home I have in my mind, and all over my Pintrest account.
Then comes Facebook. I have a love/HATE relationship with Facebook. I love that I can keep up with all my family and friends that live so far away from us now. I miss those AZ folks! BUT, I hate all the daily drama garbage that some people insist on posting about. And I have said a few times lately that I am going to completely STOP looking at Facebook, listening to the radio, or watching TV until the silly elections are over. I know who I am going to vote for. I know where my priorities stand and who I want in office. I don't need all the attack ads, thoughts, and uninformed negativity that is all over the place. UGH. I HATE politics. Its a good thing that David didn't want to be a mayor or congressman or something. I would have RUN the other way. There is nothing worse then the negativity and dishonesty in politicians.
So, if you excuse me I will now step down from my soapbox. Sorry about the off-the-subject rant.
The plan now is to play catch-up. I am not going to give a time table or anything like that because, as I see it, that is a sure-fire way to set myself up for failure. But, over the course of the next while, I will get back on the bandwagon of recording my family doings and get back on board with this blog.
