Blogversary

It’s a good thing it’s my own blogversary I forgot. I only have me to be mad at though, I’m not really mad.

I started blogging on September 2, 2005. Eden was just a mere 6 weeks old, Lilah was two and I was starting my 4th year of school. I would graduate and find out that Jon no longer believed in a God, all in just over a year of starting my blog. It seems strange to think that I’ve been graduated for most of my blogging life and have had a non believing husband for most of that time too.

For so long my life was school, babies, school, babies, happy believing marriage, school, babies, it seems strange that  that period of time is so far away, so distant, yet it feels like yesterday.

Time marches on with no cares for those it leaves behind.

I’m happy to still be at blogging. I find it therapeutic and sometimes it’s nice to read back and remember the feelings I was experiencing at certain times in my life. I don’t like reading and noticing all my spelling and grammatical errors, and I know there are some I still miss since my writing style hasn’t changed that much.

I’ve felt detached from blogging lately. I like putting our daily or weeking doings up, but now it seems so big a task at times. Instead I try to do a weekly post about five things I’m grateful for, and that usually sums up what’s going on, and then I do big posts about our trips and what I’m feeling.

With homeschooling I write in a journal about what we’ve done that day or recently in the week. I find it to be helpful and motivating because then I can see progress we’re making, I can be accountable on the days I slack off, and I can see what we’ve done and where we might be stuck at.

I’m happy to still be blogging. It’s a big part of my life and so here’s to another year of figuring life out and writing about it.
