After experiencing what it was like to be a mom for three full months, I remember asking a mother of two, "What was it that I did all day before my son came along? Was I lazy?"
She wisely said that it's not that you were lazy, but that your priorities have changed. The time you spent doing one thing gets dropped and moved to your new activity, in my case, being a mom. When something as important as being a mom comes along, you may not even miss all the things that that activity replaced.
As time has gone on, I've become more and more busy. I'm finding myself choosing between activites, and "changing my priorities." (This whole week I was watching two extra children. Phew. That made for some major rearranging.)
I've long been considering the idea of "dropping" my blog. I think it is something that must be. I've become busy enough living life that writing about it has become less of a priority. I have enjoyed blogging, but unfortunately it has become more of a "to do" on the great big list of daily tasks. I plan to leave my site up, for at least a little while.
I will not competely drop off the blogosphere, however. I plan on reading and haunting my favorite authors with my comments (hopefully more often than when I was having to spend time writing posts myself), and I will be keeping my personal blog about my family: Satopia. This blog is just the small things that happen in our lives being retold for the benefit of family members far away (particularly my parents). I admit they are not always the most entertaining of posts, but my parents adore them so I enjoy them too. If you have followed this site you are more than welcome to follow that one as well, since that is the one I will keep writing.
There's so much I wanted to say in this post, but that kind of defeats the purpose of my decision. :) For now, I have laundry calling my name.
Thanks for reading. :)
