Dear blog readers,
I am so sorry my blog posts have gone from scarce to sporadic to once-a-month. Life has just been a bit much lately. Through October and November, I was traveling more than I was home. Mid-November my maternity leave ended and I went back to working four days per week. I have two boys and a house to take care of. I've been sick on and off for about a month. I'm preparing for the holidays. I'm planning a baby shower (don't get me wrong, Kristin, I LOVE doing this!). In the midst of all this, I've had to let go of a few things. One of them was unfortunately blogging. (This includes reading my friends' blogs...so sorry, friends.)
Slower times are ahead. Traveling will slow down after the holidays, as will all the planning and holiday preparations. Hopefully I won't be sick anymore.
I am SO excited to announce that I will be going down to two days of work per week starting January 1st!! That's right. God really put it on my heart about two months ago, and I told myself that if it was His will, He would make a way, and sure enough He did. So starting in January, I will be working in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays and just checking email from home on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly blessed I feel and how excited I am. I finally feel like my life will be in balance. I'll have a lot of time with my sons, but I'll still get out of the house and make some money. It sounds like an absolutely perfect situation. Prayers have been answered!
So my plan is that once I go down to two days of work per week and the holidays are over, I can jump back on the blogging bandwagon. Because I miss all you people, I really do. I'm also sad that I've been doing horribly at documenting Greyden's first months in this word. Poor kid, he got the second-child treatment right from the get-go. Hopefully he'll always know that this has nothing to do with how much I love him and everything to do with how busy my life has been.
I look forward to catching up with you all in about a month. :)
