Sometimes, life is just messy and it helps to keep a sense of humour about it. Honestly, it was hard to know what I was thinking. Last year I took on NaBloPoMo as a way to carve out more time for myself and writing. It worked, and it was good for me. This year I took it on, almost without thinking, and I made it halfway but can go no further.
This November may be the busiest and toughest one I’ve had yet, and it doesn’t make sense for me to stick to a schedule of daily posts just for the sake of it. I need to turn my attention back to some fundamentals for a time.
Being brand new at homeschooling is taking a lot of attention, and my day to day work is suffering (or at least I am); I know it will get easier, but right now is the crunch time, as I figure it all out. I trust in figuring it out – getting a feel for things and mastering them (or feeling like I am!) as I do them is how I tend to work best, and I can see it happening already.
I don’t plan to go far or be away for long, but feeling the weight of what I will post about tomorrow become a burden is not good, and entirely against the point of blogging in my book. When I come back, I’ll have more news on our chickens, and winter gardening (if our greenhouse is still going!), and probably a recipe or two, and who knows what else.
I also need to say a big thank you to uberdish and baking bohemian, both of whom have nominated wuppenif for The Sunshine Award (not fair Jen, as I was just about to nominate you!). I will try to get to that soon.
In the meantime, thank you for reading and commenting – you are a terrific bunch of readers and fellow bloggers.
