I realize I've been missing in action for quite some time.
Here's the haps...
1. I am in a blogging quandary. What to do, what to do? I have been thinking about taking this blog private for quite some time (Why do I feel like there should be some kind of DOOM music that follows that statement). I keep getting random comments of Japanese origin that link back to inappropriate sites. That just doesn't sit well with me.
Plus, I think I am ready for my blog to be more for me! Not that it hasn't been in the past, but I can't help feeling this subconscious pressure to write something interesting, not too mommyish, not too braggy, something crafty, with witty stories about my life, intermixed with some pop-culture, and a small amount of non-gaggy posts about my wonderful husband. Are you with me? Why do I feel this way? I started out blogging as a means for recording our lives, but as blogging has gained popularity it has become more of a contest about who can portray the most perfect life. First of all, whether my life is perfect or not, I don't want to have in the back of my mind, "How will my readers take this post?" Lame, I know. I think I need a shrink! ha. I just want this to be more of a journal of our lives and if it comes out braggy or cheesy, well, sorry.
So...long story short, I will be taking this thing private. Leave me your e-mail for an exclusive INVITE!
2. Another reason for my lack of blogging has been because I just got a new job (or calling, as we call in in the LDS church). It's kind of a doosey! One that is hard for me to even type, but since I know a good handful of you will inquire, I will tell. I have been asked to be the new Stake YW President. (If you are not mormon this will mean nothing to you, sorry) It has been a month of mixed emotions. Mostly fear and thoughts of how on earth someone is trusting me and my airheaded self to do something like this. But for now, I just have a lot of meetings and speaking assignments, and HUGE events to plan. Which has left too little time for me to be lazy (like I prefer).
So, I am not depressed. Or hiding out. Just a little less blog-happy. It will return. It always does. In fact, tomorrow I will be posting about some delicious sugar cookies that I just can't get enough of!
So leave your e-mail addresses if you want to join my PRIVATE blog club!
(and ps. I really don't care if you are my best friend's, sister's, neighbor....you are still invited. As long as you are not a weirdo, then anything goes)
