Before I start this post I want to take a minute to thank all my loyal readers who have reached out to me this year in support of my work. I know I have been on a hiatus for the better part of the year but I am working diligently to get back on track and to keep everyone up to speed with life on the farm!
2017 has been a busy year for us and sadly my blog was left by the wayside for quite a while. There have been hardships I won’t lie and ever since our tiny bundle of joy arrived I have had a hard time brainstorming something to write about. You would think having a new baby would give me so many blog ideas but really all I want to do in my free time now-a-days is take a nap. Sleep is a luxury this Momma doesn’t get much of.
Here we are in December, our little bundle of joy is almost 8 months old and our oldest just turned 7. Thanksgiving has passed and now our house is in full blown Christmas preparation mode! Our tree is up, house is decorated but still my creative spark feels extinguished by constant exhaustion. I am working full time for Amazon while working part time overnight as a baker. Just trying to get enough money for the bills that accumulate during Christmas time. It is baby’s first Christmas so family from all over wants to stop by and see him, which means the house must be kept in impeccable condition at all times. All while my 7 year old runs across the house crashing cars and dropping Lego structures from the back of the sofa. Our tiny bundle of joy loves to sit in his excer-saucer and throw his cheerios from one end of the living room to the next or zoom around the house in his walker pulling anything he can reach to the floor. Things have been a bit hectic. I underestimated how much work it takes to parent 2 children who have such a large age gap.
Where did the year go? Speaking of time, where did the past 7 years go?
I have had this blog for over 2 years now, I remember when I started blogging I was confused about what to write about but I always had ideas. It seems like now I just don’t have any ideas even though life gives me inspiration every moment of the day. I now know why writers get so frustrated by writers block, it seems impossible to overcome.
I do not want you, my reader to think I have forgotten you because I haven’t. I would just rather not publish at all than publish a sub-par article. My readers are the best and they deserve the best. I am working diligently to bring you exciting and amusing new articles and I must say that sitting here typing out all this truth is lifting so much weight from my shoulders. Blog ideas are coming back to me and I’m hoping the dry spell for FRM will be coming to an end just as the year wraps up.
Thank you again for all your patience and be sure to check back often for all the exciting new things I have in store!
