I had someone ask me how I make time for blogging.
I’m going to be completely honest with you – I cut into or give up other things. I haven’t crocheted since I started blogging. I haven’t picked up my guitar one time. Sometimes the kids have whatever is in the refrigerator instead of a hot meal. Sometimes I stay up late or don’t get the beds made or we don’t have clean socks because I haven’t folded laundry in days.
I started getting up before five in the morning three (or so) days a week so I still have time to get to the gym. I keep scraps of paper everywhere and any time I have an idea for a post I scratch it down.
And sometimes I post things without taking time to edit them carefully. Or at all.
Sorry about that.
But I’m totally turned on to the ‘carpe diem’ life that homeschooling has given my family. Some families have it naturally, some families home school and don’t like the ‘bull by the horns, do it now’ approach, for some people it is some other experience that triggers this lifestyle change for them.
But I only have today, and I better make the most of it. So I sleep less, clean less, worry less and run farther, read more, drink a bit too much, type fast and sometimes post things that are embarrassing or TMI and probably I’ll wish someday I hadn’t. Or maybe not. But it’s been really fulfilling for me to do this writing. If nothing else comes of it than that, it’s close enough.
