Radio Silence

A little more than a month ago I was thinking about writing a post and I realized I wasn't looking forward to it. 

It was a strange realization because I'd spent most of June trying to write every day.  Not just writing, but enjoying the challenge of writing about a greater variety of topics. 

As I thought more about it, I also realized I'd been spending the majority of my free time either thinking about what I was going to post, getting things ready to post or actually writing a post. 

A few years ago, I was sitting with a friend I don't get the chance to see very often (we live in different states) and we were talking about all the things we want to do "someday."  She asked if I thought we'd be able to do all of our someday things and I said, "Nope."  I think she was a little shocked.  My reasoning was that every time we choose to do one thing, we are choosing not to do anything else.  I'm pretty sure my explanation didn't do a whole lot to soothe here, but I've though about it off and on ever since.

As I was sitting thinking, I wondered if I was spending my time as I really wanted or needed to and I wasn't sure. 

So, I chose not to post at all.  I decided to think about it, pray about it and post when I came to a decision. 

Except, it's been a month and I still haven't come to any big decision.  I sometimes wish I could just get a roadmap for my life delivered in the mail, instead of it taking so much hard work (and way too much patience) to find the direction I know is waiting.  Probably right in front of my face. 

What I do know is that I've loved having more freedom with my time these last few weeks before school starts.  Time to be go hang out at the park with my children, go on bike rides, and sit and read a book (or ten).

I also know that I love to write and if I go too long, I greatly miss it.

So, my conclusion for now is that I will still post, but not regularly.  The posts will revolve around how I choose to spend my time, so they'll still be about LDS Primary, homeschool, life with my family and any fun things I learn along the way. 

I do have more than a few posts about all of those things up already, if you click on the links above, you can read through them topically.  Or, you can search through my posts for a specific topic using the search box to the right.

Thank you to all of you who have sent emails checking on me, they've meant a lot!!

I hope you're all having a wonderful summer,

You can't imagine how much I'm going to miss your help each week :-) Best of luck to you and thanks again!

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Just came across your blog tonight as I am trying to finish getting ready for the new year!
