I’ve taken an unplanned blogging break the past couple weeks as my “offline” life has been more full than usual. Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been up to:
- We had the chance to visit with all 4 of our parents (separately) over the last few weeks.
- We’ve started a new “diet” that involves eating (almost) no processed food, so I’ve been spending plenty of extra time in the kitchen. I also have been in serious sugar withdrawal… I had no idea how much sugar I was apparently eating and the first week off of it was especially rough. I’m hoping that increased energy stage will come soon!
- Both my girls are in their annual half-year stages of disequilibrium. They’ve both been more emotional and tantrum-y than normal and it’s been a difficult time for all of us. I was so thankful when I remembered this happens every year around half-birthdays, both of which are right around now. (Also, can we please get rid of daylight savings time?!) My sweet girls are both needing some extra snuggles, book-reading, tickles, and playtime (oh, and disciplining conversations…) these days.
- One of Beach Girl’s friends (who is 3 years old) from church has been in the hospital with meningitis for the last 3 weeks and, while he had been improving, has had a rough past week. Please join us in praying for Miles, his family, and his doctors.
All this to say, I’m going to continue taking a break from blogging for a bit. I have 100 blog posts swirling around in my head and am really missing writing, but of course, things in the offline world are more important than the online one, so the blog will have to wait. I’ll be back!
