It’s Been a While

I apologize for not writing sooner, and admit it’s been a while.

Have you ever felt that way? Had great intentions and then life gets so busy that things seem to slip through the cracks?

Welcome to my world!

I had originally planned to write on this blog weekly, but life sort of gets in the way.

Now that I have a minute to sit and write- I can reflect on what it is that has kept me so busy. Through my reflections, I realize that parenting my two kiddos is what takes up most of my time. My children are my primary focus and since they are on summer vacation- it is up to me to fill their days. I could take the easy way out and park them in front of the TV (or X Box) or computer all day while I work… but that is not the kind of parent I want to be. What sort of summer memories would that create? What sort of people would they become?

So, instead I plan all kinds of fun activities for them- we spend our summer days filled with things like berry picking, bike riding, lemonade standing, swimming, hiking, playing at the park… while my co-workers spend their days in the office plugging away. It makes me feel so guilty that they are working so hard while I am out playing with my kids.

However, I am grateful that I am able to be home with my kids- and grateful that my kids want to be with me. I feel very fortunate that I am in the position to be able to stay home with them over the summer.

Next week they start school again- and I’ll be back in the office working. So to my colleagues- I thank you for your patience with me this summer, I truly appreciate all you have done to make it possible for me to stay home this summer and enjoy my time with my kids.

I’ll see you next week!
