So, let's talk about 'dis here blog.
I'm kinda thinking I might take a one month haitus after Jack's bday party post.
First, I really am kinda coming up short on things to say. I mean...Jack is super interesting and all buuuut...yeah.
Second, I feel like it's really difficult to blog during the day when I am with him. I could do it during naps, which is probably the best time, but Jack is no 2 hour napper. He pretty consistently takes 1 hour naps...possibly 1 1/2 if I'm super lucky. So, an hour goes by really fast. It almost takes an hour to blog soooo...then I get nothing done. I refuse to do the dishes after dinner. Too tired. So I do them during morning nap. We have no dishwasher. So morning nap is always spoken for. That leaves the afternoon nap. That's when all the other chores need to happen.
So, I either blog or surf the net and get nothing done in the afternoon...or I do it when Jason comes home and get bugged when I'm trying to blog and he's trying to talk to me about his day. Yeah. Stellar wife. I know.
I think at the end of the day I'm pretty pooped. Jack is at a really fun...but tiring age. I am always "on". He's almost running. Literally. My first reaction once the little dude goes to bed is to CHECK.OUT. No talking, just blaaaah. I've been using this blog as a means to do that and in turn...kinda blocking out this man that I'm living the rest of my life with...for a blog that is fun...but certainly not important in the scheme of things.
It boils down to what am I investing my time in?
And am I proud of it?
Drowning my smart phone has made me realize how often I picked up my phone...choosing IT over my son who just wanted to play. It made me realize that I don't have to post a picture to Instagram every day. I still exist and my life is still important even though it's not posted on social media. And this blog. I love sharing our life on here. But I want it to build me up. Not tear me down. And right now I'm having trouble juggling it all. So in a couple of weeks I'm going to temporarily push it aside. Honestly we are going to be out of town a lot this summer so it'll be perfect timing.
For now though...I'll be here posting periodically.
