Baby Gamer

Baby Gamer

The not-yet-2-year-old pushed a chair up to the buffet, turned on the sorry excuse for a TV, then turned on the PlayStation controller. And just to make sure we knew he meant business, he managed to turn on Modern Warfare 2. (Don’t worry – he didn’t play it.) We are in so much trouble. That’s the news for today. It made me laugh…then sigh…then roll my eyes….then tremble in fear and trepidation….

Even Isaiah was impressed with Seth's geekiness...

Off To A Bad Start

I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions. Opportunities to start a new happen at any given time throughout a year, changes happen, the school year starts, the summer begins, a baby is born every other year here (usually), and stuff  just happens that requires starting over. But after the year I’ve had, I decided I needed to be resolved. Resolved to get my house back, get back to scrapbooking, taking my kids on road trips again, getting organized and getting back to blogging. It is January 7th and I’m just now writing. And I’m so pathetic, I’m writing about how I haven’t been writing.

I have people asking me quite often to write a book. A blog is the best I can do, folks. I’m not sure why anyone would want me to write a book but I am flattered.  There’s a plethora of books out there by large, homeschool families so I don’t think we need another one. There are plenty of cookbooks so not sure I want to tackle making another one interesting. Anything I could write about has been covered, I believe. Man, I’m being a downer, aren’t I? So, here’s the deal, I love to write, always have. It’s therapeutic and, occasionally, blesses others so I told myself I’d get back to this but I’ve already procrastinated a week. I could make it a goal to blog weekly but then I’d procrastinate to a month later so I better just find where I laid my self-discipline so I can get back to it.

A new year does lend itself as a convenient time to go back to the drawing board so that’s what I’m doing.  I have organized my calendar already and I think I’ve found a way to tackle my to-do lists without getting overwhelmed. I just opened up Memory Manager and downloaded some photos and did some editing. There may be hope for me, yet. I’m writing this post, lame as it is, but it’s better than what I wrote yesterday which was nothing. I might actually get the hang of this resolution thing. Oh, and I worked out again, something that had been neglected last month.

Wish me luck and hang in there with me! I’m still here!
