Life as MommyMo

I figured it out...

For some reason, I've felt the need to be entirely too self-critical when it dawns on me how long I am able to go without posting to my blog. I usually let myself off the hook, but yesterday I found myself wondering what exactly keeps me from writing.

I love to preserve memories. So that made me think that I do that in so many other ways that maybe I don't feel the NEED to blog, too?

I like to write. So that made me think that I am doing a lot more wordy stuff with the way my job has changed. Maybe THAT sucks the need to write about myself out of me?

I like to share cool, funny stories. So that made me think that I have Facebook for that.

There you have it. Lots of "reasons," but really nothing more significant that a busy life and too many distractions. It was actually seeing a service to print my blog that brought me back here today. I want to do a better job of capturing stories as they happen. When I go back and read old posts, I realize I do it well sometimes, not so well others. If I DO do it well, I really could create a fun memory book for the kids that involves no scrapping. Imagine that!

I suppose I have other reasons for keeping to myself more than usual lately, but I also like to think I'm entitled to that. Look at me telling myself it's all ok, no matter what! Oh, well. We all know I'm a pretty open book. I'll get back in the groove somehow, sometime and be a better blogger. Ah... Someday.
