Well, here I am. It’s been almost 4 months since I last blogged. Truth is I’ve had a big announcement which is the main culprit for lack of blogging here, and if you follow me on Facebook you know the secret is already out!
Yes, we are expecting baby #2 sometime in August! We are excited (and understandably overwhelmed at times) to add another little person to our family!! The favorite things I look forward to with adding another kiddo to our family are finding out what he/she will look like, what their personality will be like, and imagining the many giggles to be had in the future. We plan to find out the gender in a few weeks, so expect another announcement then.
But on a more serious note, I have another confession. Due to my pregnancies making me feel worse than a train wreck, I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time browsing Facebook over the last four months.
Now, this is a good and bad thing. Honestly I became so overwhelmed with the sheer amount of information and blogs everyone was throwing out into cyberspace I developed a good dose of blog and information burnout. Not only did I not have the energy to blog, I felt like if I did blog I would just be adding to the “noise” in peoples lives. And goodness knows we all have plenty of “noise” in our lives.
So that is the bad thing. It’s taken me a while to see through the funk. But the good thing is that it really helped give me clarity about why I blog, and how I should go about blogging in the future. I’m not the greatest writer out there, and it hasn’t been easy for me to blog. But I do think that sometimes the Lord allows experiences in our lives that are best shared in written words, and that perhaps somehow they can be used to bless people that I rub shoulders with. So assuming I keep feeling better physically, I plan to continue blogging in spite of the 4 month lapse.
Here’s to baby #2, blogging again, and clarity!
