This is the first time since I started my blog that I have skipped an entire month of writing. Where was I? Living life for real, not online.
I love blogs, so I am not shunning online life... I love it, in fact. I love the inspiration and the companionship that I get from reading other people's experiences. A few of my favorites are www.soulemama.com, http://www.abeautifulmess.com/,http://www.stonegableblog.com. But I could feel that this is a time to delve in deeply to what is going on in my house. Snuggle in. Cozy up. And I wanted to experience things for what they were, and not be accountable to reporting it all online.
I'm slightly back, but feeling a bit more introspective. One of the things I have realized: I love my job. (My job, in case you don't know, is being a stay at home mom, a domestic engineer, CEO of Casa de Schwartz, etc etc etc.)
I remember nannying one summer thinking "This job kind of sucks. I could never stay home. You never get a break from the kids, and there isn't anyone to talk to!" But fast forward 20 years later, and I am treasuring this gift.
By the way, this isn't a post about mommy wars, and about work v home baloney... This is just how I feel about my situation, and a deep realization of what I want out of my life. When you realize internally you have what you want (even if you do complain about it occasionally), there is great peace in that. It also make decisions about the future easier:)
Thank you to all those who visit my blog. I am grateful for you as well.
