It's quite complicated.
But not in the "oh I have four kids and a crazy schedule" complicated.
Or the "it's summer and we are never in one place long" complicated.
No. It's more about the fact that I've truly been at a loss as to what in the world to say.
I love writing. I really do. And I keep a journal
regularly at times. So I do have some form of an outlet. Not that I would ever assume to pour out those thoughts on a public forum. But I think I've been at a place where I don't ever.ever.ever.ever.nay, ever want to come across as though I have something to enlighten you with.
But in that tightrope of being vulnerable to share parts of my journey on a public forum and the desire to encourage others, I realize that sometimes it's probably best that I just not write at all.
I could also just keep it to the facts but who wants to hear about someones endless checklist of things accomplished or derailed?
Alas, I guess that is the nature of most blogs anyway.
In a nutshell my checklists would include (since my last post in, eh hem, February):
*My eldest finished his first semester of public school (and 1st grade).
*We went to Disney.
*Our car died on the way back from Disney. Long two days followed.
*We had to buy another van. Which I love, btw.
*My baby turned 3.
*My oldest turned 8. (today!)
*My little sister got married. (who's feeling old??
*My hubby started graduate school (who's gonna pray for me over the next two years?)
*I surrendered to the purchase of an insulin pump so no more daily injections.
*I just completed my first triathlon last weekend. Absolute blast (and another post entirely).
And I think that sums it up. I feel like I'm forgetting something. Oh well.
I have a lot of things that I am trying to process and hopefully those will result in future posts. But for now, I will leave you with some picture cuteness. If anyone is still following this thing.. give me shout in the comments.
