I have a medical condition…

I’ve been debating sharing this illness with anyone for a while now but I think it’s time. I can’t hide it any longer.

 

I have self diagnosed it to be “blogger’s guilt.”

 

Okay, I made it up entirely but it is weighing heavily on my heart.

 

Maybe my condition is a slight case of ADD, procrastination, overwhelmed-mom syndrome… I’m not sure yet.

Either way, I am apologizing (once again) for neglecting my blog. I set out 3 years ago to share our home, life and adventures and, personally, I’ve let myself down.

Well, today is a new day my friends! Today is the day I tell you about our home, life and adventures… for now.

Our home: It’s a mess!

~Halloween was yesterday! We are still recuperating from the festivities.

~My dining room table looks like a laundromat threw up all over it and into surrounding baskets.Not for any other reason than I. HATE. LAUNDRY.

~We’ve packed our pantry and kitchen cupboards to the point of becoming a “counter-keeping family” (another phrase I’ve just coined-right now) where we don’t have enough closet space, so, our cereal boxes and extra juice bottles are sitting on the counter.

~Our yard can now be classified as a leaf-covered meadow for frolicking fawn, which is nice; but my kids are not going out there to acquire tick born illnesses and get bitten by snakes.

~Cabin fever is beginning to set in from lack of outdoor play time.

~Baby girl #6 is awake more during the day and due to her cute and happiness factors, I will just eat her up instead of getting any work done.

~If you didn’t know, I have an etsy shop! I’m not a huge success but at night, when the kids are in bed, I’m in my workshop doing my thing.

~Another thing, if you didn’t know, we home-school. Although, this year has been extremely lax, I’m getting down to the wire and after submitting my paperwork for this session (since my Juniper turned 8 this year, it’s time to report to the state) we need to keep track and stay on task for 180 days!

~Again, if you didn’t know, I’ve been working on writing a book. (about homeschooling, actually it’s about deciding whether or not to home-school) It’s been taking me forever because of my other disorder: perfectionism. {I had to swallow my hesitation and just get it published!}

 

So if all that wasn’t enough, add in regular life things, like grocery shopping, changing diapers and scrolling my facebook feed ( all things imperative to living) my bitty, baby blog has taken more than the back burner…she’s fallen off the stove. So much so, google adwords canceled my account (not that $1.94 is a lot to lose :/ ) Now, I’ll have to gain readership and activity, then reapply in the hope of creating any kind of income here.

 

Otherwise, you all can head over to my etsy shop and buy one of my signs šŸ™‚

 

Or, sign up to receive emails and head over to Amazon and grab a copy of my new book… Deciding to Homeschool: A Guide for Parents on the Fence
