Flashback Fridays: Oct 5

Found in the archives, I realized that this was my intention in 2007... But didn't really happen.  Life gets so busy that I thought this would be a good reminder to document our family life more often....

originally blogged Oct 3, 2007:

Back on Track!

I miss my blogging, because it acted as a sort of journal for me - a record of our day-to-day lives.

And then came the business.

And baseball.

And soccer.

And before we knew it, we were experiencing milestone birthdays. And Gr. 3. And takeovers at work.

And life began to spin out of control! Or at least my grasp on the things that had once been important to me.

Running your own business takes more courage that one sometimes has. And it almost ALWAYS takes more money! :D

But the rewards of working from home, being able to spend the days with my daughter, being there when Connor gets off the bus and has a snack while we chat about his day... those are priceless and worth every sacrifice that one has to make.

And so, as I've come to realize that I am NOT going to figure out how to get 48 hours out of a day, I have begun to schedule. And delegate. And prioritize. And recording our family's history is high on the list.

And so here I am. Promising myself that I will set aside 15 minutes every couple of days to jot a few notes about our days. Funny things the kids say that I won't remember in 2 weeks, let alone 10 years. Hurdles we overcome. Storms we weather. Together.

I may not always have photos. Sadly, I've taken less photos in the last 6 months than ever before. So that's another challenge to overcome.

But maybe tomorrow.


P/S:  Don't forget about the following challenges on my blog for a chance to win (deadlines in brackets):
It's a Sketchy Challenge (Oct 31/12)
