Remember the time when I blogged?

Well, quite some time has passed since my last blog post. Almost four months to be exact and lots has changed since then. In my last post, I talked about how I was offered a new job and that I was really excited to start my new role. I am happy to report that I've been in my position now for almost four months and I absolutely LOVE it! That being said, I don't think I realized how much time I would spend focusing on my career. I forgot what it was like to consistently learn new things. Plus, I had no idea what it would be like to "manage" people. I swear there are days when I come home and feel like I can't speak English to my family, let alone write a blog post, because my brain is just mush. Once I'm home though, I really try to be "home."  No checking emails unless absolutely necessary. Typically, I try to be home in time for supper. Then we do bathes, homework, prep for the next day and try to spend some quality time together. By then I'm usually exhausted myself. Hence why my little blog here went silent for so long.

I've been doing lots of reflecting during the silence. I've realized that I really miss blogging and while I know that I may not be able to do it as frequently as I once did, I really want to try to get back into it. I've also realized that if I'm not blogging, I'm not taking pictures. I'm sad because part of the reason I started doing this was so that I could document the kiddos. The last pictures I have are from early September. sad.face.

Through the silence, I've noticed that I need to strive to find a better work/home balance and take some time for me. I'm  no good to my boys, family, friends or coworkers if I don't take care of myself first. I miss writing and I miss taking pictures. It may not seem like much to the average person but for me, writing means a great deal. It's official. I'm back!
