Confessions

As you can probably see, blogging is not one of my highest priorities right now.
In fact, I was thinking of giving it up.
But then my mom told me how much she enjoys reading it.
So I'm gonna keep going.

I'm just busy living life.
Coping with the mid-life hormonal changes 'a-happenin' right now.
Waking up every day at 4:00 am covered in sweat.
And sweating a lot other times.
And feeling like I have brain fog.

Working hard at church,
The hubby is officially "el presidente" now.
It's very cool watching him carry that mantle.
In my role as RS prez.

Trying to keep up with everything,
And not succeeding too much.
Like yesterday having to pay an obscene amount of money
To get my missionary son's birthday package to him on time
Cuz I put it off too long.

Got a wedding to work on.
And I've done very little about it.
Am I in denial?
Maybe-could be the brain fog and/or other stuff constantly taking priority.

Trying to be a good mom/grandma
And feeling like I'm not doing my best right now.

The seasons are changing.
Feeling depressed about the upcoming heat wave.
And trying to transition the garden.
But getting behind in that endeavor also.

Getting the youngest girlie ready for
her "Mormon Prom"
and the gentile one too.

Studying a lot about healthy diet
And making major changes in mine.
And losing 7 lbs in the process.

I'm just busy living life..
Like everyone else out there.

I enjoy your blog also and hope that you don't stop. Even though I don't really know you, it seems like we could be friends in real life. You are so much like another sister in my ward that I admire a lot.

Don't go away.
We'd miss you too much.

I've been blog-slackin' myself lately. Like you said, you're so busy LIVING life that it gets hard to stop and keep documenting.

I hope some things ease up on you soon, or all of them. Things have a way of piling up and weighing us down. Just Keep swimming, it's all you can do.

Could have written the same post. Lots to do and less energy to do it. Scrubbed my kitchen floor for an hour this morning. Arghhhh!

Don't worry about Lyss. I'll help her out with Prom stuff.
Good job losing 7 pounds!! Holy Cow! What did you do?

I, along with a million other women, can totally understand where you are coming from. I find that I only have time to do a small piece of 95 things and still have too many things to do and 95 things that are still unfinished. Blogging should be your release from the daily grind, the sharing of your creative mind (or venting), and giving the rest of us a little "peek" into your busy life. I along with the rest of the votes here say "DON'T stop" - we love reading your little blog.

You do have a busy life!! And how funny you met Kendra on the plane. She is such a sweet girl. She is also one of my daughter's best friends (which is probably why she likes my family:-).

Good job on the healthy eating. So what have you learned? Sorry about the "changes" (something for me to look forward to:-) And good luck with everything else.

Yep, busy busy.....just take a little bit at a time.....

Thanks for the SanDiego info!

I hear you on the "brain fog." Hopefully the diet helps with that. If not, I have a few resources that have been hugely enlightening to me.

Thanks for the spurs! I'll post them this weekend.
