It's been busy 'round these parts.
Doing what, I don't know... but my days have been full and it's been good. This screen I'm staring at, I've realized, has become a time-sucker and I'm trying to remedy that, so that's why you've been hearing from me less often. As mentioned in my 'feedback friday' post, things have gotten incredibly unorganized around here, my priorities all skewed, any semblance of calm and orderly gone... and my family was feeling its effects. I felt guilty every time I sat down at the computer because I knew there were 987 other things at least that needed to get done. So for now, this is on the backburner. I love to write, I love to blog, I love to read blogs... but more than that, much more so, I love and need to be pouring into my kids. I need to be planning my days. I need to be making my home. I need to be in the Word. I need to be making dinner and grocery lists. I need to clean my stinking master bedroom.
So if you don't hear from me for a bit, that's why. I'm doing the things that I need to be doing. I don't expect a long absence, just a little time to reorganize and reschedule.
And... Corban's door just broke, (which means he can escape and won't stay in his room..) he woke up Cate...naptime isn't happening, which is terrible after a houseful of 5 moms + 9 kids, and a big project that I'm trying to complete before tomorrow night. Oh brother!! Next time I post, I'll get to the 'feedback' questions. If I don't post before... Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. that's exactly how I've felt since being back from our trip...and honestly, I've grown to love not being online as much.

  2. I'm so the opposite. When I'm at home I just want to relax and not do anything. I've never been so lax about not cleaning in my life (no joke, even as a kid I was meticulously clean). I tell myself there is a good excuse but really there isn't. I still need to be committed to my life, which isn't ending just because I'm having a baby.
    In a way, this was a good pep talk for me.

  3. I'll miss hearing your updates, but I'm glad you are taking the time to reorganize your life. I need to do the same!
    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Maybe you can just post pictures to hold me over in the mean time... with that fancy pants camera of yours. :)
