Getting to the Content

I haven't really updated my blog with any real content in awhile. It needs updated. Pretty desperately.

But the laundry needs folding and the dishes need washing and the floors need sweeping and the bathroom needs a scrubbing and the ferret’s claws need clipping and the playroom needs arranging and this body needs a resting. I'm just beyond busy doing nothing right now.

While it’s not exactly true that I’m doing nothing it certainly of feels like nothing is getting done because by the time I complete my list of tasks that need done they end up needing to be done all over again. Frankly the reason I’ve been absent from this space is that I’m preoccupied by a cutthroat game of tug-of-war I’m currently engaged in with the daily to dos of my life. Do you ever feel that you just can't keep up anymore?

I promise, real content is coming soon. It's just buried under all of my laundry at the moment.

oh i understand!
it is a never ending cycle!
but you just have to find time for yourself...maybe even at the expense of something small

I hear ya! We're in the same busy ass boat!

Oh man, I never feel like I can keep up. My to-do list is always too full and by the time evening rolls around, I always find that I didn't accomplish even half of it, which only makes the rest of the week just as busy as I try to compensate!

Just make sure you take some time for yourself. Your happiness is more important than one load of folded laundry!!

I always feel like I can't keep up. Yesterday I posted about LAST Halloween, hahaha, thats how lazy I am right now.

Your blog LOOKS beautiful though.

And really, none of us post full-contest posts on a regular basis. Who even HAS that much content in their lives, haha.

We love the short posts.

We've all got dishes to do.

I totally hear ya on this. I'm in a constant battle. I swear I could work 24 hours a day on this house and NEVER catch up! Im always thinking about what I "should" be doing and feeling total guilt if it's neglected.

So true, so true. Sometimes, I just hide in my studio and let the chaos creep in. Will the world end if there's a little ring of mildew in my toilet? I'll drive back the chaos next week.

So much to little time! I've had my hand in so many things lately, I haven't really done any long posts in at least a week. I just want to make it over the hump of the last two weeks of school. Then I hope to see all this free time magically appear. HA!!!

Real content can be hard to blog about sometimes! I feel like it takes more time to give real updates, and put more thought into it. Hard to keep up, but you're doing a great job! Love your blog! Oh, and we have the same name! :-)

Yeah, I'm still working on figuring out how to balance it all as a Mom! 2 kids seems like I would be way crazy.
