I love being a blogger. I really do. I have ups and downs, times when I’m super burned out and other times when I’m really gung-ho about blogging and all my projects. I have times when you can’t drag me away from my computer and other times when I have to force myself to get on and answer emails.
I was recently in a ‘burned out’ phase. But then I attended SNAP! Conference and got reinvigorated again. I have so many fun things in the works that I’m super excited to share with you. But to be honest, SNAP was exhausting and I still feel like I’m playing catch up. I’ve been really tired lately too. So please excuse my blog for not being the most interesting thing in your reader (you know, like it usually is.)
You might be wondering what this blog post is about. And frankly, I don’t really know myself. I’ve had so many things on my mind that my mind is kinda freaking out. Let me share with you a bit…
1. My husband is job hunting. He’s been doing a 1-year residency here in Utah and it ends in June. He’s a dentist, in case you didn’t know. And while he does have a few prospects in Utah, none of them are really ideal. There are so many things to consider when accepting a job offer. I might be biased, but I believe that my husband is an incredibly smart person with great potential. I think he’s going to do more than dentistry, I think he wants to make a difference in the oral health community. It’s hard not to wish that someone would just see what I see and swoop in with a dream job offer (with a dream salary!) Patience, Heidi.
2. My To-Do list is so long, full of tasks that are both exciting and intimidating. I have to potty train my second child. I really HATE potty training but it’s so nice when it’s done. We have to buy a new car. We have to fix our other car. We have to register Will for kindergarten. We have several major DIY projects to work on. And the list goes on and on and on.
3. I’ve been spending way too much time house hunting. For the last week or so we’ve been playing with the idea of buying a house and settling down–when there was a very good job prospect that didn’t turn out quite like we expected. And even though I have been waiting for 7 years to buy a house with my husband, the process is a lot more exhausting and frustrating than I expected it to be, and all I’ve done is look a little bit.
I have three little kids and a job that is nearly full-time. My kids are still little and not involved in too many extra-curriculars. I have NO CLUE how my blogger friends with older kids do it all! I feel like I’m drowning in all this life stuff–let along my blog. All I wanna do is sit in the sunshine and/or sleep. I haven’t had a vacation in a year and I really, really need one. I hope that happens sooner than later.
How are you all doing?
