With just a little more than a month left in the school year, I have never been antsier for summer in my life. I've been taking the boys to the beach in the afternoons after work, and just can not contain my excitement for all the things I want to do this summer. Beach! Pool! Camping! Concerts! Road trips! Spray park! DISNEY WORLD! And clean out my closets. Take 10 months worth of pictures off memory cards. Exercise. Blog!
Working full time has pretty much kicked my butt. I'm still struggling with the mommy guilt- attempting desperately to make my time with the boys as memorable and awesome as it was when I was a SAHM. Add a stressful divorce into the mix, and I'm proud I haven't completely lost my mind. The part that has really made blogging so impossible lately though? Dating.
Blogging and dating just don't mix. At least easily. I knew it as soon as my boyfriend pointed out that I'm on my phone whenever he leaves the room. I certainly can't read ALL THE BLOGS and check twitter, facebook, instagram... And if I bust out a post after the boys are in bed on weeknights, that takes precious sentence forming brain power away from flirty phone conversations. My time with the boys is precious, and they deserve my full attention. And once they're asleep or spending time with their dad, my relationship deserves the same. Don't get me wrong- I have me "me time", but blogging doesn't top going for a run or getting a manicure right now.
So while I think about my bloggy friends and my little blog each day, summer will be our time.
