Summer Survival: Part II

It seems that we're surviving summer around here a little too well: I haven't had time to or felt much like posting.

Days have been spent outside, mostly leisurely, and I've been living up to all the goals I set out to meet this summer (see my last post from nearly a month ago, which is right below this post--ugh).  We've taken a trip to the beach and are planning another soon, as well as having visited some other fun places.
It's been an excellent summer so far, filled with simple pleasures like popsicles, mineral-panning, playgrounds and pools (and yeah, maybe a little extra tv due to some hot days).
It's hard finding the motivation to blog in such distracting (though enjoyable) conditions, especially being so wiped out by day's end.  When I do sit down to devote some time to it, including resizing and watermarking photos for a post, I'm always interrupted.  I've come to the conclusion that the one word I'd use to describe parenting is "interruption."  In fact, just now my train of thought has been derailed as Soren is imploring me to help him find a lost toy.

I have so much that I want to do on MY list, however the kids of course come first.  Hence, there's not much time left to write, craft, paint Soren's bedroom, etc.  But as the years go by, I'm getting more and more accepting of this.  My one worry is that when the kids don't need me anymore, It's going to be a hard transition to having more free time.  Time will tell.

Hope you're enjoying summer!

  1. I say that I am "instantly interrupt-able" - because it's true! Just when I think I can do something {without nursing a babe at the same time} someone asks a question or needs something or blah. LOL!

    From the pictures it looks like your summer has gone well so far :)


I'm a good listener...comment away!
