Time for another Mama Monday, hosted by the wonderful Toddler Awesome blog! It is a great way to meet other blogging mommies and share a little information about yourself!
Every week you get not only a "theme" of questions to answer, but a weekly "task" for you to do, just for yourself! I admit, I completely didn't complete my task for last week. I guess I get an "F", but I can't remember teh last time I took a buble bath! I am pretty sure this weeks task doesn't have a hop in heck of getting done either, but I will try to do my best. So, on to this week's questions:
I had wanted to post a few more of the gender prediction experiments today, but didn't feel like peeing on anything. :0) Luckily, there are several that can be done while I'm laying in bed at night getting ready to go to sleep. (Which is what I am doing right now after a day full of packing and sorting.) So, without the necessity of much more energy than I need to type, I can share a couple more of my "results" with you. Prepare to be amazed!
First off, I would like to say I am 100% unhappy with the look of my blog. I want something that screams me and mine. I really love blogging, and writing in general, and the fact that my blog doesn't reflect me is bringing me down more than it should. (It could be pregnancy hormones too. Who knows?) I am hoping to re-vamp it, or have it re-vamped, very soon. But for now, please don't judge me based on my horribly generic and cluttered blog.
Secondly, I am so happy to be back and doing Flashback Friday again! I've missed it! It's so much fun to read other people's flashbacks and to share my own. It gives me a chance to go back in time and remember things I might have forgotten. This week I had no idea where to flash back to. There is so much going on in our lives right now, so much that I am finding completely overwhelming, that I was having a very hard time focusing on some of the old happy. So I went to my albums and started searching at random hoping to find something hat would catch my interest. I found something that made me cry, so I suppose that fits the bill. It certainly seems appropriate given some of the main points of stress we are experiencing as a family right now.
Part of what was so wonderful about having Bubba, apart of course from just becoming his Mommy, was that we waited to find out the gender until he burst spectacularly from my womb. In reality, there was nothing spectacular about his birth until his arrival. It was a horrible experience that I am going to go out of my way not to repeat this time around, made worth it by the amazing little person I now call my son. Having my husband look down at me, tears in his eyes, to tell me "It's a boy! It's a boy!" was easily one of the top 3 moments in my life, and one I wouldn't give up for anything.
We have decided again to wait it out and see what this new little one will be whenever they choose to enter the outside world. It's driving people crazy, but we figure God gives us so few great surprises in life, why would we want to spoil this one by peeking early? Besides, I might need incentive to keep pushing if things get rough. :0)
I've been gone. Absent. Missing. I have been neglecting my blogging duties. I have 1,000 great reasons, none of which many people would care about. Truth be told, I have missed blogging more than blogging has probably missed me. I've had a lot I could have used an outlet for lately, and all I can say is that at the end of the day I have no time and no energy...and possibly no desire to come face to face with all that is leaving me feeling so overwhelmed at the end of a day. Besides, no one wants to read a negative blog.
So, to start my comeback to blogging I am adding yet another weekly meme to my rotation. Mama Monday over at Toddler Awesome is a great chance to not only tell people a little about yourself, but to meet other blogging mommies! This is week one of Mama Monday, and I'm excited to start!
