Sometimes I wonder if I’ll look back at the last four and a half months of my life and wonder what in the world I was up to. I had relied on blogging as my personal journal for so long that now, looking back at the scarcity of posts, I’m wondering how I let so much time slip away.
And now that I’ve been away from regular blogging for what seems like such a very long time, it’s like I have everything and nothing to say all at once.
I once told a friend who marveled at how I came up with daily blog topics that it is far easier to blog daily than to blog sporadically. She looked at me in disbelief, but I know all too well it’s true–when you’ve made the commitment to come to the blank page night after night, you’re constantly on the lookout for what to say. When you let yourself go off that schedule, well…
You get a rambling post like this one.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve realized over the past couple weeks that I took a bajillion pictures of something, only to never post about it (like the 4th of July or Halloween or our garden harvest).
I won’t promise that I’ll be better, but I find that I miss the daily practice of recording my thoughts, so who knows? Maybe you will see me more of me after all.
Things you might want to know:
-My students this year are overall quite delightful. It feels almost like a vacation after last year’s nightmare.
-While the photography business thing is going along well, I’ve found that I’ve almost completely stopped taking pictures for pleasure. I need to remedy that, but it’s a matter of finding time…maybe when the holidays hit and all this end-of-term grading is done, I’ll let myself play around a little bit more.
-I am exactly 19 weeks today, just one week shy of being exactly halfway through this pregnancy. We find out next week at my 20-week ultrasound what we’re having. Any guesses?
