Just write something. Anything.

January 15, 2018

It’s been a couple months with nothing happening on the blog.  Plenty has happened in real life, but I just haven’t made it a priority to write it all down.  I can blame the fact that writing is still a tedious task for me.  I can blame my computer not wanting to communicate with the photos on my phone.  And ultimately I can probably blame the baby who has awakened me at least once between 2 and 5 a.m. every night for the last eight months.

I still can’t believe what a toll that has taken on me and my mental energy and ability to accomplish anything.  He’s leaning more toward 5 a.m. and even later now, but still, I am so sleep deprived with this child.  I can’t even fathom what a full eight hours of uninterrupted sleep would feel like.

Yesterday afternoon DH had to go back to work and more than anything else I just wanted to crawl in my bed and sleep.  For hours.  But I had a baby who was ready for dinner.  Then there was bathtime and bedtimes, and waiting for children who were at the stake dance to come home. And so it was many more hours before I could crawl into my own bed.  Sometimes this mothering thing is so very hard.

At least now I think I’ve figured out how to post pictures on the blog again without going through about a 9-step process.  What a rigmarole.  That has been the most frustrating problem to try to solve.  So will I try to get caught up on all the posts I’ve been composing in my head the past few months?  How about a new resolution half way into January?

Let’s remember how to blog.

I miss it.  Not necessarily the writing part (although it helps me sort out the thoughts in my head) but I miss having a record of what we’re doing and what I’m thinking.  And I love being able to look back on our lives and have stories to go along with the photos.

I’ve been microblogging on instagram this past year.   It’s so easy to share a photo straight from my phone, but typing anything long is such a pain.  I finally figured out how to add my instagram feed over there in the sidebar, but I actually prefer sitting at the computer and typing out much more detail.  I have a slew of “better late than never” posts that I intend to write (or finish writing) this week.  Wish me luck.
