Blog vs Life

I am so sorry that I've been a bit scarce commenting on your blogs lately. My husband mentioned to me the other night that he has forgotten what my body looked like from the neck down because he usually just sees me looking up over my lap top when he is speaking to me. That really hit home. At first I denied it, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that it was true. Then I brought up that I am making money blogging and you have to work to get good opps. He smiled and then said that this was the case even before I began doing the paid posts. This is true. But it was a valiant effort on my part to defend my blogging addiction.

I do love blogging. I love the people that I have met. I love the thought of keeping an online journal of my daily thoughts and interactions with my children. I love the fact that they will be able to see how I felt on any given day in twenty years just by typing in Crazy Working Mom in any search engine. But, this is taking away from my family life. I do not want them to look back in the future and say that they're glad I kept a blog, but sorry that I didn't interact more with them on a daily basis. So, I realize that I am not visiting some of you as often as I once did. I apologize for this and hope that you'll continue to come visit as time permits in your busy life as well. I don't have a Dell Memory but I will stop by when I get a chance and can remember, but for now I have realized that my family needs my lap, so I've got to move this lap top over for a while and set some parameters for myself to keep so that I can still do a fair amount of blogging while maintaining a healthy relationship with my family.

A re-examination and re-definition is important. We'll see you when we see you.

What a terrific photo to describe the "Syndrome!"
You're right - the little ones and hubby have to be first in order for the world to be right. We'll always be here when you're ready and have room on your lap!

A few minutes here and there, I take what I can get. Totally understandable, I only blog in the morning when my kids are busy, then I have to put it away and get something done. Enjoy your fam!

Precisely why I haven't been by in a few days.

The family is most important. Remember to take care of yourself as well.
