I want to write about so much right now. I want to write about Christmas, attempting sleep-training (again), Imogen dancing to a Care Bear song and her love of music, training for a 15K race in March and trying to keep up with Jillian workouts while I’m trying to increase my running, and about the ongoing struggle of balancing parenting, work, and things I want to do like write more, or organize our pictures, or clean the mess that has taken over my office. The problem is (and always is) not having enough time.
I would REALLY like to set the goal of blogging twice a week throughout 2014. Writing is something I want to do more of, and I know later in life I’ll be glad to have anything recorded at all from this time that often feels like a complete blur. So I want to write about more of it. I just know that realistically, I won’t always be able to meet this goal. So do I set it and try anyway? I know that if I DON’T focus on it, I am likely to repeat a similar pattern as last year, when I barely posted at all.
So for now, this is the plan. Unfortunately I have 60+ essays that I had hoped to get graded over break that I’m STILL working on and need to focus on right now. The other things I want to write about will have to wait until later.
