Man, I really intended to do better on blogging than I have. I mean, I've been a SAHM again since October, right? What's going on???
Well, I didn't exactly fall back into place as easy as I wanted to as this SAHM, mommy, wife, maid, teacher person I used to be.
It really stunk, too.
I had all these perfect expectations I was going for, lists I had made in my mind on "What I Am Going to Do When I'm Back Home" for months while at work. It just didn't happen. For 2 months!
It felt like I was just on extended vacation from work constantly waiting for the day I'd go back. Too good to be true, you know.
But now I'm back on track. I wake up loving my wild, unpredictable, insane life. I'm breaking up with those thoughts of perfection. They're ridiculous.
And this year, I'm focusing on celebrating with my kids on why we're different and learning how to enjoy those differences. Differences such as Asperger's, puberty (Heaven help me!), music tastes, book tastes, interests, just anything that breaks the evil cookie-cutter mold society places on us to "box" up "normal" people. If you can't enjoy being you, then life isn't going to be very fun.
I have new blogging ideas in the works, too. I'm also wanting to link up with my buddy, Allison, where we can show off our Pinterest crafts we make. I'm a Pinterest-aholic. There probably needs to be an intervention, but then I wouldn't have anything to do while I'm in the bathroom. TMI, TMI, I know...
And I need to re-vamp my layout. **sigh** I'll do that gradually, I think. (Yeah, I don't have red hair anymore, either, so that pic has GOT to go.)
So with my SAHM shoes back on, I'm wiggling my toes and it feels goooooooooooood.
