I can’t do it all, but somehow, I don’t think that was a secret.


SO…….I had great plans when I started this blog. Let me go over some of them.

  • Workout/Lose Weight: I have stepped up my game and lost some weight, but that isn’t hard when stepping it up means getting your ass off the couch a few more times than usual. I’m still staying up way too late, which has kicked my metabolism in the ass.
  • Cut Down on Drinking: This means alcohol of course. I was never an alcoholic, but I sure loved to drink my heavy calorie and sugary blends. Doing better! I am on to beer water as most of you know. BUT…….The drinking socially thing is still an issue. I have cut the sugar drinks out, lowered the alcohol content and the calories……BUT…..The frequency of events to attend: parties, friendly dinners, bullshit celebrations (made up ones) and “the kids drive me crazy” reflection nights have not helped matters. With the social drinking, comes social eating, social ass seating and social staying up late. AND……..As stated before, none of these are good.
  • Write: I started a blog, two, then three……as an outlet. I needed to get back on the horse (so to speak), although I can ride one. The blog was to get my feet wet again, so I could work on writing projects I started pre-kids. This has not happened due to the overwhelming time (when I have it) it seems to take: writing, commenting, reading other blogs….blah, blah, blah……..
  • Work with/therapy for my son and remember I have 3 others: Well, if I am spending my time doing the above…..I’m not working as much as I should with my son or spending enough quality time with my kids.

SO……In conclusion:

I know I’m my own person with dreams…..blah, blah, blah……but I am a mom/wife first. This is my choice and what I signed up for. I’m not saying I live my life for others, but I’m not going to half-ass it and end up having my kids write shit about me one day, or my husband.  At least, not if I can help it. When they are gone (not the husband), then I get 100% of the time for myself. For now, the time needs to be split, with them getting the lion’s share. Maybe I would have turned out better if someone used that plan with me!

AND……Let’s face it. No one benefits from a mom/wife who weighs so much, she can’t get off the computer chair without huffing and puffing or one that falls off the chair from party exhaustion or over-consumption of beer water…….SO…….Keeping in shape is a top priority.

Writing/Blogging is for me and it will have to wait for a convenient time. This may mean a few times a week, or a few times a month. Who knows? I sure don’t.

STANDBY FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS!

  1. Are you supposed to blog daily or when you determine it is time? I do it when I determine it is time. I hope that others will read what I write and forgive my lack of daily posts. I look forward to your posts, when you write them I am happy you have done so. I am unworried that you haven’t done so on a daily basis.

    Your life is your own. Your schedule is your own. Your time is your own. You should determine what the priorities are and how to fulfill them!

    When you write again, I personally will be happy and will read it.

    1. So crazed….I even screwed up the title, which I have since fixed. I put pressure on myself when getting into the “blogging mode”. It was like eating something you really love and continuing to eat eventhough you are full and it is making you sick. It happens! Anyway…I got that way with the blog and trying to do too much when I really didn’t have the time. It made me feel guilty, but that was all me.
      I appreciate what you said and I know most sane people feel that way. I just needed to vent. I probably should’ve included “may post a few times this summer”, because…..who knows??!!??

  2. Shoot, woman go a little easy on yourself. You do what you can do and you’re a Mom which is an extremely difficult profession. I am certain you’re not as “fat” as you think you are — that’s a woman thing and you write when you write. Write/blog when you can — your followers will respect that and be there for you when you return. :).

    1. Thanks. I am not grossly overweight….just a tad that way…..but the pounds are coming back and the progress I have made is fading due to me “trying to do it all”. I need to get back on track.
      I basically had to get it in print….that basically….dreams and passions are great to have, but priorities need to be in check, even if the dreams have to take a back seat sometimes. I forgot that for a bit.

  3. Blogging should be guilt free. Do it when you choose to, when you can do it. When you want to.

    You know those people who blog all the time? They rarely have much else to do. You do. Enjoy your life and check in when you can.

  4. Lorre it is so hard to write when the kids are little and you happen to have a lot of them lol –and it’s sounds like you have four boys? Ye Gads! Just write when you can and when you feel like it. Even tho it doesn’t feel like it now, there will eventually be plenty of time in your life to write til your heart’s content. Just enjoy your family. There’s no where to go and nothing to be that is better than what you are doing right now. 🙂

    1. You are so wise Linda. AND…..for once, that is not sarcasm from me. I suppose I delayed the “me” time a bit by starting a fam in my thirties and then having another in my forties, but oh well……..so is life. I needed a kid do-over anyway. I have a good 8 years between the last two to fix any mistakes……OR……make them worse.

    1. Oh, how I do love seeing those carrots!
      I am going to try. I’m pretty sure when summer is over, it will get better. Having the older kids home is not stressfree and uneventful. They are so much needier than I remember.

  5. Let’s be blunt. Who gives a fuck? Write if and or when you want to and have time. I have a boatload of children and can sympathize. All of us in the blogosphere have had a mother at some point and can appreciate (now) the number of hours which go into parenting.

    Meanwhile, do what is good for you, your health, your children and your marriage. Tell the whole rest of the world to step off. Even that overachieving ego of yours. What you do is totally worthwhile…but that just happens to be a blog post.

    Much love and see you when you come around…otherwise, call me.

    1. I can’t believe you cursed in your comment. You know that this site doesn’t allow such language. With that being said, My fucking overachieving ego is a big fucking problem. I still find it hard to wrap my brain around: all the things I need and want to do (mostly want)….I can’t do……It is incredibly frustrating because I am still determined to figure out how it all can be done. Sadly…..it goes way beyond this blog.

  6. I have to tell you I appreciate your posts more than the ones that land in my mailbox everyday. I know when I see one of your posts that it will be worth my time reading and entertaining. That’s why I subscribe. It is there when it is there. I don’t have to go check every day. Too many people that post every day really aren’t interesting enough to do that. Hell, I actually know someone who posts 3 and 4 times a day. Seriously!? Who does that? As for me…my postings are sporadic and I decided a while back while going through much the same guilt trip that I wouldn’t post just for the sake of posting. That I would only post when I felt it was worth a person’s time reading it.
    Enjoy your time with your wee ones. Especially that little guy who melts me with his smile. Writing will be there when you want it to be.
    I’ll see you then.
