Well, I have been remiss and failed to keep up with the 30 days of blog since last Tuesday. I have totally bombed the final week of 30 Days of Blog. Every day just seemed to be too much for me this year so I’ll have to see if I can do better next year.
I do have to say, however, as a working mother of two, 19 posts in 30 days is pretty good, and I believe it is more than I have ever done in a month. I’ve gotten more crocheting done in the last month than I probably have in the last year. I certainly do need to make more time for myself to crochet. I can’t normally do it every day, but at least a few times a week should be possible. I think I’ve proven that to myself this month at least.
That’s one of those things about Motherhood that you just don’t understand until your there yourself – complete lack of time. It’s amazing how fast you can get things done that used to take you the whole evening once you got home from work, because you have so many other things that have to get done too. On the other hand, something that used to take you 5 minutes takes you an hour because you have to stop and put a binki back in the baby’s mouth every 30 seconds, and tell the toddler for the 50th time to stop drinking out of the dog’s water dish (pretending to be a dog herself.)
I have gotten behind in keeping up with the dishes, (including the darn baby bottles and pump parts) and the laundry in order to do my posts this month. There have been a few times I was pulling diaper liners out of the dryer to stuff so that I could put them on a kid. But the traffic on my site has increased dramatically and I think a short-term intense campaign has been worth it. Now I just have to find the balance I need to keep up with both. One or two posts a week should do the trick.
I had hoped to get caught up on the Granny Square Project and didn’t get that done. But I am a lot closer to being on track than I was at the beginning of the month. This green yarn will be May’s second square. It’s actually a skein from my Grandma Townsend’s old stash that my Dad had given to me and I had previously started another project with. I honestly don’t even remember what it was going to be – maybe a Prayer Shawl. But didn’t like where it was going so it ended up in a bag with my yarn stash. I frogged it this morning and now have this nice pile ready to start Square Ten.
Thanks so much to my friend for inviting me to join the insanity for this year’s 30 Days of Blog. It has been great for me. See you next year!
