Why? A question that I am asked daily at least a thousand times. "Why are we wearing that?" "Why are you wearing that?" "Why are we eating this for breakfast?". Why, why, why. Some times I have answers. Other times I resort to, "Because I said so!" Try as I might not to, sometimes it slips out. This particular why that I am asking is an introspective question. Why am I writing this blog?
When I began this, it was to keep in touch with family that is out of town. I quickly realized that I love to share recipes. Love, love, love. I also love to share crafting ideas that I come across, (some of them I actually try to do.). However, now that I am actually trying to keep up with this blog thing, it is starting to overwhelm me. Lots of times throughout the day, I think, "Huh, that would be cool to blog about." And then proceed to not do anything about it. Lazy.
I confess, I am terribly lazy. I put things off, don't do things, and make excuses all of the time about why I can't do things. I feel like people give me a lot of slack because of the kids. They afford me some refuge from all of the things that I feel like I should do, and, all of the things that I know I would love to do. The problem is, I still feel that I want to do lots of these things. Almost a guilt that I am not being "crafty" enough.
There are lots of things out there to do- just check out Pinterest. My problem is discerning which are important. I have ADD. Self diagnosed, of course. But after living as me for all of these years, I know my brain. I do not like to focus on one thing for prolonged periods of time. I see something pretty and think to myself, "Sure would like to do that". Then I file it in the "To do" file in my brain. There, it creates clutter. I am not a huge fan of clutter and every once in a while I have to go through and clean house. I have to let go of the idea of doing some things, simply because there is not enough time. Or, I do not have enough energy. Or, I am too lazy to do it.
All of this is to say that I am trying to find my way with this blog. There are days that I think I am just going to post about recipes that I make. Then I come across a craft or activity that I think my friends would like to see, or do, and I want to post that. Do you see what I mean about the ADD? It's kinda like "Oh look, shiny things, oh there's another one, ohh, ohh another." And it doesn't stop. That's why the internet is such a bad thing for me. I have spent so much time looking that I have actually stopped doing! So, I am taking it back. Now, that doesn't mean that Pinterest is going to lose one of it's most prolific pincers, let's not talk silly talk. But, I am going to be posting mostly recipes, but every once in a while something fun that we've done, or funny stories.
