Wow. Seriously, wow. 4 months. It's been 4 whole months since I blogged.
I think I have started the last 10 posts with some exclamation similar to this, substitute the length of time since my last post (gradually getting longer). I should probably stop being so surprised that I haven't blogged much.
I blame Facebook. BACK IN THE DAY (Ye Auld Year of 2010), when all of us young moms were childless/with child/with non-mobile babies/with barely-mobile toddlers (or at least that's how it seemed) we had LOADS of time to blog. And we were stuck at home with said bellies/babies/toddlers and no connection to the outside world. It was like a worldwide epidemic of Castaway! Blogging was our lifeblood. (Am I speaking for anyone else here, or was it just me?)
And then came Facebook, or "Mini-Blogging" as I like to call it. I remember the first buzz of Facebook. By then I had a couple of non-mobile and mobile babies. But still somehow had a bit of time on my hands to blog. But I did not have time on my hands to blog AND update the minutia of my life constantly, not to mention read about the far more meaningless minutia of friends constantly on this new-fangled thing called Facebook. I was doing just fine with my blog, thankyouverymuch, and didn't need another time-suck. (Just so you know, Friends. I LOVE your minutia now! Don't get your feelings all hurt. That was then.)
FLASH FORWARD 3 YEARS...
My blog is dead, I spend LOADS of time on that time-suck Facebook, plus Words With Friends, Instagram, the occasional odd email (and Twitter? Oh please don't bring up Twitter. I. Just. Can't. Go. There.), and now 3 HIGHLY MOBILE children with ridiculous things like hobbies, and homework, and friends. Pshht! Forget blogging! Who has time to blog?!?
Well, I do. No I don't. But I finally have a purpose to my blog and AM going to reinvent myself, ditch emailing, ditch Facebook, ditch friends, family, eating, breathing, sleeping (no, not sleeping)....I am going to blog about my new house renovation!!!
Who's excited?!? (I see you all with your hands raised.)
Ok, tune in tomorrow for the first installment of Little Pink Houses the Third!
