I am kind of hitting a slight low point when it comes to my blog. I want to keep up with the commitment that I made when I signed up to blog 365 days but I am also finding myself wondering if I am really saying something that is worth saying. I don't want to end up having a blog that is filled with trite details from my life, but this is also how I keep track of the things that happen in my life since I stink at keeping a diary.
I think I am also being hit by vacationitis. I need a break from life and will be getting one at the end of the month. My husband and I are all booked for a trip to Kansas to do some house hunting. At first it just seemed like another boring chore to get done before the move, but then I realized that I will be taking this trip with out the children. Yes that is right, no kids! We have never left them this long, so I know that I will be missing them, but then again it will be a nice break from being pounced on at the crack of dawn. I also get giddy at the though of all the knitting I will be able to get done. And the legal peeking into other people's houses that I will get to do. And the quality alone time with my husband that will be happening. Wheee!!!
A nice thing happened to me last Friday. We were sitting at a Scout fund raiser dinner with a family that we are friends with. The wife is pregnant and due right about the time that we will be moving. She told me that she had such mixed feelings about the quick approach of the due date, she was excited to not be pregnant but she was sad that we would be moving. It is the first time that anyone has really come out and said that they were sad that we were moving. I am kind of an insecure person when it comes to friends (I have been burned a lot in my life) so it was nice to hear someone that I consider to be a close friend actually express regret at our moving. I plan on keeping in touch, but I am also realistic and understand that people grow apart so these days may be some of our last fun times together.
Oh and in case you were wondering it is less than a week to my birthday. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
