I decided a couple years ago that I would try to use this space to capture a little bit of me - for my own memory keeping, and for my kids when they are older. I'd like them to read my words and get a sense of who I was while they were young, whether I wrote a lot or nothing at all. Sometimes nothing reveals an enormous amount.
Clearly I've been in a nothing at all phase. And I'm ok with that. No one can do everything.
Frankly, I get a little annoyed at women who try to do it all, inevitably fail at doing it all, and then apologize for not doing it all. I learned a long time ago that I can't do everything and I don't beat myself up over it.
Right now I'm focusing on making sure we are fed, spending lots of time with the kids, and making sure I stay connected with Kerry so that when the kids leave home I'm not sitting here with a stranger.
But, I do miss this blog and will be back again soon. Until I am, I leave you with my new favourite photo of the kids, taken as they walk down the aisle at Kerry's cousin's wedding as the flower girl and ring bearer.
Until next time...
