I've been doing a lot of thinking these days... well, most days, really. My mind is constantly racing. But Hurricane Irene this weekend has put a lot in perspective. We were very lucky, no flooding, no trees blown over, no damage whatsoever. I spent quite a bit of time moving things in the basement, deciding what was important and what I didn't really mind if it got wet and ruined. So then it leads me to think, why do I have things that I wouldn't care if they were ruined? They're just taking up space, right? I'm trying to get my mind to accept that there are things we (I) possess that really aren't that important, but I always fight giving them up. So basically a lot of stuff is heading toward Goodwill in the very near future.
The other point of this is that I tend to spread out and in my attempt to simplify as much as I can. I had multiple blogs for different topics. I have since taken most of those blogs down and will start working on importing them into this blog so that everything is together.
I'd like to get back to blogging regularly and I think my biggest reason for the lapse in my blogging was the separating topics. It got to be too confusing, rather than making it easier like I thought it would. So everything from venting about the boys (big and little) to baking adventures to job search to etsy shop updates will all be here. It's going to take a bit to consolidate everything, so please be patient on that. I promise, eventually there will be a LOT to read from the past few years. And there will be even more in the future!
