The End of the Experiment

So, I didn't post.

I posted every day for the first three weeks of August and then, the last two nights, I just...didn't.  It turns out that I have (once again) underestimated how crazy busy our lives become as we seek to fit in all the appointments and shopping and fun we can before the school year starts up again. And, honestly, I don't want to miss any time with my kids right now, because I will miss them when they go back to school.

So, I guess the experiment of posting daily is over for now.  (I really did feel like it was a bit much, anyway.)  The thing is, though, that I have stuff to tell you, but it's going to have to wait until I can find time to sit down and write and think.

In the meanwhile, here's a picture of me using Edward as a mouse pad.

Although I always love to read your blog, it is true that the time we have with our children goes by so quickly - and that is what is always more important. You made the correct choice.

I personally think posting two or three times a week is awe inspiring. Yes, kids trump blogging.

I will miss your daily posting - its always nice to know that we are all in this together. But I feel like a hypocrite because I haven't posted since July, so, there you go. Keep inspiring us with yoga, though. It makes me feel hopeful.

While I enjoy reading your posts, I enjoy your sense of focusing on the important things more. Hope you and the ladies squeeze every last bit of fun out of your Summer.

Does it work? using Edward as a mouse pad? If it does, I'm going to try it on Sophie! Though - being still a kitten, albeit a teenager in cat years - she's more likely to wiggle and play with the mouse than to let me run it around over her body. She's still trying to catch the pointer!

None were fluff, except for Edward's tummy!

I did enjoy your daily posts, but yes, it's important to spend time with your kids. Mine started back to school yesterday...I'm working from home today and things are just strangely quiet. Even the fur kids are gone to the kennel today so we can go camping this weekend. It's just weird being here in the house without any noise...just me. (sigh!)

That sitting down and thinking part seems to take longer and longer, for me anyway.

I love your posting (and your forearm stands!) but I get the time/effort involved. (Note: see I should post more.)

School schedules will lighten things up a bit. I can only hope. (And I don't have kids!)
