Blogging Questions and a Ninja Toddler

Today is the last day of Aaron’s late nigh work schedule. It couldn’t be over soon enough. I feel like he was barely home this week, and he’s hardly seen Desirae at all. At least we will have some family time this weekend. Aaron and I even have a date night planned tomorrow, just the two of us! It’s a miracle.

But come Monday, I have jury duty. As Desirae’s primary caretaker, I’m nervous about leaving her for an extended period of time. I’ve never been away from her for more than a few hours. Plus, I don’t know how many days I’ll be able to find baby sitters. I either need to not be selected or to have a short trial. We’ll see what happens!

While I’m waiting around the court house, I hope to work on scheduling my blog, deciding on specific goals, and creating a better blogging process. What kind of goals do you have for your blog? What is your blogging process or system? How far out do you schedule your posts? How often do you post? I’d be interested in hearing any of your ideas, tips, or experiences! I should have lots of time to think about them next week! Also, I need something other than worrying about Desirae to occupy my mind while I’m waiting.

I’m not sure when I’ll be back on the blog or social media. Right now, jury duty is holding my life’s schedule in the balance. I’ll be glad when we can get things back to our normal rhythm. For now I’ll just cross my fingers, and hope for short trial!

It’s a shame that I can’t escape from jury duty as easily as this kid escapes from bedtime. I think I could learn something from him. This boy has some serious ninja skills. I feel for his poor mother.

Have a great weekend, and hopefully I’ll be back sooner than later!



6 Reasons Why I Started Blogging

This blog started quite suddenly. I didn’t read any books, write out any goals, deliberate over the perfect name, research the best web host, or ask any bloggers about their experiences. One day I started mulling over the idea of writing again, questioning my skills and debating the idea of starting a new blog. Once I mentioned the idea to my husband, he thought it was a brilliant and has been my biggest supporter ever since. But I still wasn’t convinced.
