This is an apology post. I've been a horrible blogger and an even horrible-er (that's a word, right?) friend to all of you. I've been trying to post as often as I can (I found a way to get around the security block at work for posting) but I have been too distracted and too busy to respond to comments and visit other blogs. It's not fair to you guys (who I still love) and I'm sorry.
Now that we're just about settled in at our new place (just a few minor adjustments left until we're fully settled), I've got a little more time on my hands in the evenings and weekends to watch Netflix, read, do crafts, etc. - all the things I was always too tired to do before (even though we lived close to work, school, restaurants, etc.). My evenings are much more relaxed and less chaotic than before and I love that most of the time when I get home now dinner is cooked (thanks to my M.I.L. who lives on the other side of the duplex and always cooks enough for a small army) and the kids have their homework finished, Joey's already been home for a couple hours and has cleaned up the house a bit, and all I have to do is eat, get the kids ready for bed at 8pm and relax until I decide to crawl into bed.
Hopefully tonight I'll be able to workout and get some blogging done. I've really missed reading your blogs and stalking the crap out of your lives. I feel like I've lost touch with quite a few of you and I want that connection back, dammit! I know I've been in and out of the blogging world lately especially because of the security block bullshit but I'm trying! I've got to start setting and hitting goals again because I've been in such a slump, I need motivation!
Here's my blogging goal for the rest of the year: Comment on at LEAST 10 blogs every day and make 1 NEW blog friend every week.
What do you think of my goal? Do you have any blog things you'd like to apologize for? Have you started your blog goals for 2015 yet?
P.S. I also realize that I owe you guys a giveaway for this month too. I'll get on that before the week is up, I promise! While we were moving and packing, I was forced to go through all my crap and realized how much good crap I had lying around that would be great for giveaways. I'm debating whether I should just use one item at a time or just do a "Crap I Found While Moving" prize pack. Any thoughts or suggestions?
