Sweeps Month is Here. Let's All Cancel Cable and Blog Again.



At this point, I don't know exactly where to start. Blogging obviously is not high on my priority list and, like one of my old bosses said way back in 2005 when I tried to convince him to start a blog and use social media for a client, the trend is on it's way out, right? (HA. I'd love to hear his current opinion on the state of social media.)  For me, there are so many other avenues to connect with people online, this one just sort of fell to the wayside.

Problems with this:

Our family archives are a little more blank than they used to be. Events aren't reflected the same. My brain is getting more spotty, not less, so writing things down is becoming increasingly important. (See also: My planner looks crazy, the to-do lists are long, and second grade is hard.)

My writing is RUSTY at best. (That's the first time I've used CAPS FOR EMPHASIS in, like, forever.)

It's still one of my great loves – to blog, to write it down, to connect with people when they read it.

Advantages to this:

I have more time to focus on the life in front of me and hanging out with those two small people I birthed many moons ago.

I have more energy to focus on some things that needed focusing on in the last little bit of my life – namely, myself and my people.

But like every season of change (Come on FALL!), I feel myself feeling antsy for a change and unclear where to start. So I thought I would come back here – to this space that made me happy for so long – and see what might happen.

Hope you will join me. (Subscribe here.)

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOA THE BLOG IS BACK. I was just thinking I missed it the other day.

And you better not have cancelled cable or I will cancel my trip. HOW WILL I SEE PLAYOFF BASEBALL.

Don't worry - we have a slingbox for that. We're not totally crazy. It only intermittently goes out at key moments in the game.

Yes! Not blogging is hard for me too! With the memory troubles and all, I feel like it's more important for me to conscientiously sit down and process our family events in writing. If I don't, I fear that this time period will just be the beginning of a decades-long blur. All the other social media platforms are so quick (and easy...thus the appeal) that I don't actually experience the connection to the content in at all the same way. Because obviously blogging is all about ME. :)

And this blog is about YOU. And Nate and Nora and Karl, obviously. I like knowing what's up in your world Kat-style. No one tells a story quite like you! Hugs!

Yea! I know this is months' old, but I *JUST* found it, what a treat. Which is also funny timing because the only reason I found it is because I finally clicked on to my own blog to *gasp* write a post. Let's do this! We can do this! At least occasionally, right?
