Wow. It has definitely been a very long time (may be more like a year than just months) since I have blogged regularly. I decided several months ago to take a break from the Babywise Friendly Blog Network before the holidays. Both of my kids have winter birthdays and I felt like I had stuff to do almost every night for a couple months. Sometimes I wonder how I ever had time in my life to start and reasonably maintain a blog. I still debate quite often taking a more permanent break. When I started this blog, it was from encouragement from a friend but I was also at a place in my life when I really needed an outlet for all of the issues working moms work through. I definitely still need that outlet…but it gets harder to fit blogging in on top of life so it is usually the first thing to go. So all that to so I really do not know the future for this site or if I will ever be able to get back to regularly blogging and contributing.
However, I owe a great debt to a couple of moms that reached out to me MONTHS ago to do product and book reviews. I have deeply infringed on their time and generosity so their reviews are my utmost and first priority. Then I really do hope that I can add some organization back to my life in general and include some short but more frequent posts. Every time I consider wrapping this blog up, someone sends me the sweetest most touching and extremely encouraging note as an appreciative working mom. More than anything, the idea behind naming this site was to add grace in to the difficulty of working outside the home…and I don’t know about you but I could certainly stand to be more graceful in my words, thoughts, and deeds.
