2014 was an interesting/hectic/stressful/rewarding year. I probably didn’t do the best job of taking care of me, BUT I did take a little blog pause (Thanks Jennifer!!) in December. My parents had the kids for the last week, allowing me to get the next unit of school work done for the kids. I didn’t get much actual writing done, but the silence allowed me to relax, breathe, step back, and brainstorm about the upcoming year.
2014 was a whirlwind for sure. I spend the first couple of months helping taking care of my nephews. I should say, “we” did, because I would have never been able to do it without the help of Fofo 🙂
March brought us COUPLE’S WEEKEND!!! Ahem, only 72 days til 2015’s Couple’s weekend. Not that I am counting 😉
We got a huge uplift in July when my husband got a raise (eeeeeek) AND overtime!!! Woot Woot Woot WOOT!!! The financial boost was such a weight off our shoulders. It was the only way we were able to ROAD CRUISE!!!!
Homeschooling has been a learning experience this year. I am doing my best to stay relaxed and follow the lead of the kids. But at the same time finding a way to challenge them without driving myself to burnout city. It’s a balance of my introversion to Fofo’s extroversion. She would like to out doing things everyday if she could, but the compromise of once or twice a week seems to be working.
I have been on and off blog wise this past year due to babysitting, an awful case of writer’s block, and a computer that is on the fritz. I have struggled with my writing this year. Mostly because I have this “OMG I’m a horrible writer, everything I write is shit” writer gene. I’m a tad on the self-deprecating side. I hate it when writing feels like work. I like words to flow naturally, which is why writer’s block is agony for me. In order for me to be successful at this blogging thing I need to post regularly so I need to remind myself to suck it up buttercup!!!
I hope you had a great New Year, and I look forward to what 2015 has to bring. Cheers!!
