I think it is a theme of my blogging to say "I’m still here!" or "I’m back" or something along those lines. Some days I come here to my blog with every intention of writing about something. Unfortunately, I can never think of anything to say.
I’m in a busy season in my life right now. I’m organizing our homeschool room, which is also our computer room, and my office. I have a lot of projects I’m working on, both for work, and for home and homeschool. I know that I need to drop some excess baggage, but I can’t seem to do it. I suppose that it isn’t a horrible thing that I’m not blogging regularly. It has to be towards the bottom of my priority list, because so many other things need to take precedence in my life.
One thing I have resolved on doing is get into the Word more than I have been doing, and pray more often. When I say pray more often, I mean pray deeply and meditatively as opposed to the arrow prayers I tend to do. Not that arrow prayers are bad, but I know that they are not enough.
Another thing I need to really work on is making my husband and children my priority. Sometimes they take second seat to my projects. Of course, what is the purpose of projects but to benefit my family. If they aren’t benefiting from the projects, then I need to rethink them. Sometimes deadlines need to take precedence for a short time, but usually the deadlines are upon me because I have procrastinated on something or other.
A third thing that I have considered is the state of my house. I have so much stuff I don’t know what to do with it all. I’ve tried to freecycle some of it, but invariably some of the items are still here after posting them more than once. I have got to get organized from top to bottom. I’m tired of not finding things I’m looking for, and not knowing what I already have.
These are just the stray thoughts of a tired soul. I need to stop rambling, and then go to bed.
On another note, I’ve redesigned my homeschool website. I’m adding lots of homeschooling links almost daily, arranged by categories. Hop on over and let me know what you think! Also, my regular site is at a point that I can say "stick me with a fork because I’m done" and be truthful. I’ve added pictures to my gallery, a Bible Study and Prayer Center to my website, and a virtual memorial to my dad. Hey, and I just posted about a thought provoking, faith-building video just published on Answers in Genesis.
