Happy 600th Post and 2010, Goal Number Three
When I informed Brett one of my 2010 goals was to blog everyday, I think I saw him flinch. So, I restated my goal to having something posted on my blog every day, although some of them would be written two or three at a time and then set to publish later. He was better with that.
I've realized keeping a blog not only keeps me sane and documents pieces of my family's life, it keeps me creative. It provides that challenge to always be thinking of new ideas, techniques, and resources to bring into my work while sharing it with you. The other challenge is drawing borders around that time so that I don't let it sneak into family time, personal time, or even creating time. It will always be a challenge.
So, I'm pairing this goal with getting all of us on loose schedules to help with our daily rhythm at home. It will include earlier bedtimes for all, morning routines that we'll stick to even when all I want to do is let Sebastian play another PBSkids.org game so I can get something else finished, and mealtimes that will take place at the dinner table. This means keeping the dinner table cleared of paperwork and crafty messes. And that's another goal for another day...
Feel free to ask me about this in a few weeks. I promise I won't leave you a mean comment about minding your own business and remembering that creative souls have a hard time staying organized. HA!
My new motto needs to be 'Fewer excuses in 2010'.
