When I Don't Blog

I have a confession . . .

Sometimes I just don't want to blog.

 

Sometimes I want to take a long bath and make my hair look all pretty and paint my toe nails.

Sometimes I want to sit down and read a good book.  Like these:

Sometimes I want to sit out in the sunshine and try to get my legs to tan.  I don't usually tan - I burn.  But I slather on the tanning oil and sit out in the sun anyway in the hopes that I can at least get enough color to not look like I never leave my basement.

Sometimes I want to chase my kids around the house with a camera, tickle Gwen to hear that belly laugh just one more time, or jump around the house with Wyatt pretending to be Tigger.

Sometimes I just want to hang out with this guy.

Sometimes I want to clean and organize my house, and I feel so much better when I do.

Sometimes I want to go do something with a friend and get myself and the kids out of the house.

So sometimes, when I don't blog . . . that is why.  

Sometimes you have to give the blog a back seat to this lovely thing called life.

I love this! I think it's important not to get so lost in the blogosphere that you stop actually living. It seems like you have a great balance, kuddos!

Love this! This is the reason I've (tried to) never put pressure on myself about blogging; I want my life - with my family, above all! - to remain my priority:)

For some reason, the comments I leave through Bloglovin aren't showing up. :( Have you had that happen? I am with you on this post! I too have been in a bit of a blogging funk the past couple of weeks. When I finally have free time at night, I have been choosing to read books, watch movies or go to bed early. I feel like when you don't write as much as normal people always start to question if you are pregnant. ;)

I understand completely. I don't have a lot of followers like you, but even if I did, I still don't think I would blog every day. Sometimes I go almost two weeks without posting. My blog is more of a personal journal for my boys anyway, so it really doesn't matter if I blog or not. I just keep up with our memories there. :)

So very true! I always find when I have a blogging break, I come back feeling so refreshed and full of ideas. The pottery studio looks like fun too!

Kerrie Williams said...

me too, sister!

Melissa said...

Agreed! :)

Melanie said...

I totally agree!!! And I LOVE your toenails..LOL!

Amanda said...

I love to blog but I also know it's not my number one priority in life so when I can, I do and if I go some days without it, I know it's ok. Life is about living it and when we get the chance to document the memories, that's even better!

Lauren said...

love this post! sometimes you just need to take a break and enjoy everyone around you!

Erica {let why lead} said...

EXACTLY! Sometimes I'm tempted to get a little intense about my blog, but then I say to myself, "Hey! You're not even getting paid for this! Chill out and go paint your toes!" Haha. I might just go do that right now... :)

Enjoy living!

Jodi said...

And if you don't live life you'll have nothing to blog about anyways! So taking breaks to enjoy those moments is always good!!! :)
