There are only a million different reasons I just couldn't keep this blog up after we moved to suburbia and had another baby. But the big ones --
1. I hated that the name didn't apply any more. So I kept waiting to change the blog name, switch it and move all my content. But moving content is hard. So is coming up with a different name. It bothered me every time I tried to post.
2. Going from 1 kid to 2 is hard. Having your husband start a new job with TONS of travel RIGHT when you have that second kid is REALLY hard. At the time I felt like a failure for not blogging regularly. But the whole blogging world just became very overwhelming for me and I needed a break. I kept up blogging for Dallas Moms Blog because I love it, how it brings moms together and I love all the contributors and the friendships I've made. So, by default, this one had to take a back burner.
I've thought about restarting a lot. I know this little blog doesn't have a ton of readers, but I mostly blog for myself so that doesn't matter. But I do want it to be interesting and fun. And every time I started to write in the past, it just wasn't right.
But recently I've found myself writing blog post worthy things on Facebook and then deleting them because they are just too silly/long to share there.
So -- here I am. Back to see if I can give this a go again. We've been looking at properties back in Dallas lately, so my blog name might just come in handy again soon. And now that I'm homeschooling my 5 year old (!) I feel like I have a lot to say and need an outlet.
Plus, I know at least 2 of my followers are dying to know how homeschooling is going, how it works and want to make sure I'm not just eating Bon Bons all day. No, sillies - I'll just be blogging all day!
I kid, I kid.
So, welcome back readers! Let's get this party
