Over the last eight months (maybe more,) I have felt a bit of split in my life. I feel like I am living a double life. No, I am not going all super hero, nor am I developing a split personality. I just feel like there are two completely different sides of me right now. The mom and the me.
I have always loved to blog and found that over the last year my blogging has declined rapidly. I finally took a step back to think about what was going on. I realized that my blogging has slowed because so much of what I have to say just didn’t gel well with the cute family blog that I have tried to maintain. So, I had my epiphany, my ah-ha moment, and with the help of a friend, I have decided to jump into the realm of parallel blogging!
I have kept so much of what was going on off my family blog. That blog is one that I will occasionally print out and keep for posterity sake. I don’t scrapbook to save my life. So, that is the only way that even I will remember what happened in our little family life. I love to watch the kids grow up and put it up for my friends and family and for them. The kids love the blog and look at it on a daily basis. My point, I don’t want to muck it up with the ME and all that is going on.
Hence- I am going to keep going on the family blog for posterity sake (kinda sarcastic false deep voice here.) That should satisfy the MOM part of me. And…. to indulge the selfish side of me that wants to inundate the world with too much of my personal feelings, I am starting this blog. This one is just about me me me…. and how I am getting through life day to day!
So, what do you think? Waste of time? Moment of brilliance? Bring on the straight jacket? Hmmmm. I guess that we shall see!
