ideas, questions

I've been thinking about the blog lately. Things have been really busy around here with work and traveling (a bit more than normal) and adjusting to having a man friend all without neglecting the other people in my life. Sort of. Yeah, still not feeling balanced. Feeling happy just not balanced.

So with all this, the blog gets neglected. I've been doing well to keep up with Tuesdays and maybe one post in between. Perhaps you've noticed? It's not like I don't have things going on in my head. It's often very loud in here. It's just that I'm not sure what I want to share. I know I've mentioned before that I've kept journals for most of my life. Since I started blogging, I've made maybe one or two entries in a private journal. I either feel comfortable enough to share with everyone or I don't write it down at all. Seems like I'm missing things there...

How about y'all? Do any of you (bloggers or no) keep a private journal?


And speaking of Tuesdays and having lots to do, my list from two weeks ago is still lingering. I haven't worked in the yard or bought stamps. The Boy hasn't met anyone new but there are some plans for that. I have bought tickets for the December trip, booked my annual check-up, and re-stained my dresser. All the rest remain on my list.

In other news, there seems to be an end in site for Shreveport. It's somewhere around Valentine's Day. Hey, at least it's an end. And from November on, I'll probably be coming less. Yea for that!

And, finally, one sort of exciting thing is that I've been working out more. The Boy is providing motivation and support without making me feel pressured (I do that part myself). It's nice because everyone always talks about getting fit but we never really do anything about it, even provide support. This needs to change, people. Does anyone else feel like they need this? Should we have a weekly check-in where we're all held accountable? I think we're a pretty good little community here and maybe we could help each other out. And I'm not just saying that so I'll have something to post about.

If you can figure out where I can fit that into my schedule, I'm all for it. Would be nice to be able to wear some pre-pregnancy clothes again.

Totally understand! I don't journal, but have always wanted to.

I just talk about working out, but there's a part of me that thinks this is never going to happen. We need a jogging stroller so I can go for serious walks. That's about all I want to do.

Being out of sorts of late, I wrote about this on Monday. There are things going on in my life that I won't blog about, but that I am writing about. I'm keeping it to myself, but at least I'm keeping it.

Yes, patois, I had been thinking about it and then when I read your post I realized that I wasn't the only one. And you're right...the point is that you're keeping it. I feel like I need to, too.

As you know I do neither--blog or private. And you keep telling me I should, at least about things E says and all the stories of her craziness. Here is another, since we are getting rid of a lot of things (donations and selling), she has been helping me go through things. She will see stacks of boxes here and there and will ask, "Mommy are you selling XXX?" So out of the blue the other day she came up to me and just stared at me and said, "Mommy I won't sell you." awwwww...I am even tearing up typing this.

So I guess I have blogged it; just in your space. Please keep this :)

I relate to this post on so many levels. Sometimes I feel "pressured" to blog or feel guilty if I go days without posting. But realistically, the blog is FOR YOU, so do what you feel like doing. I think having a private journal in addition (or instead) is a very cool idea.

As for working out, I just recently joined a gym and am already pressuring myself. Right now I am setting a goal for going 1 time per week and will increase it as time goes on. But yeah, I could use some extra motivation and encouragement!
