new blogger rules
I remember back when I started my blog...I was so hell bent on posting two posts per day. Some days were easier to post than others...and I'm not sure why I put those kinds of expectations on myself and this little blog. So after about a year, I changed my rules and decided to blog only once daily. Which I did (almost) until recently.
Now...there are a few other things I'd like to do/have to do 'round here other than blog. Mostly, run around after my Clara. About a month ago, I decided to take a chill pill with this blog. It's not at the top of my priority list...I have a lot of living that I do instead. Oh...living and loving....and studying (because I literally have to study all of the days of my life. Great.)
The blog isn't the only thing to take a back burner. The whole computer in general...AND my cell phone. When I walk in my front door...I don't talk on the phone...I don't check my email. Those are my precious few hours with Clara. And we play. Read books. She crawls over to me and climbs into my lap and smiles at me. She touches my cheeks, and makes me smile. She sucks her thumb while I cradle her in my arms. We sing. She giggles. We build things. We play with Daddy. I feed her dinner. Bath time. More play. Read books. Bedtime.
Then she goes to bed...and I freaking collapse.
Not a lot of time for email...or phone calls to far away friends...or blogging...or Facebook. Someday I will have time for those things...like when Clara doesn't want to play in my lap anymore...and those days are a whole lot sooner than I am prepared for.
