I've kinda been avoiding this lately

There are a few blogs I read occasionally and a few I read quite often. I have been doing some thinking and i think I feel inadequate, but that's not exactly the right word. My blog is mostly about my kids. Others post about other things, politics, things going on in the world, stuff like that. I must be either very boring or one dimensional. I'm not into politics, I can't vote, so I mostly don't pay a whole lot of attention. The news usually ends up making me cry, so I don't know much that's going on. I guess i have my head buried in the sand. Is it a bad thing that I write about my family? They are my life, this is the time and season to be a mother. Is that the only thing my life revolves around? No. I have my knitting (which includes my doing it at home on my own, a weekly stitch n bitch I attend, and the class I am teaching at the library), I have a scrapbooking group I go to once a month. I read. I do have my own interests. Although, truthfully, they do get put on the back burner when something come up for the kids. So, I guess I feel like my blog is painfully boring, and then I wonder why it bothers me because I only know one person that really reads it and I'm not sure she does often.

Seren, how in the world am I going to get to know you and the kids if I can't read your blog? My dear, your kids are your life, and that's probably the best situation, don't you think so too? I don't pick up the phone to talk, and when I do, it's always the same: "What's new with you?" "Oh nothing, same old same old. Just being a mom and the kids are growing." While that's true, if you can share the goodies along the way online, then it's preserved ... better than a scrapbook if you ask me. And I do miss you and the kids, seriously! Things like the middle of the night miracle may not make it into a scrapbook, but you'll read it later on in life and it'll re-inspire you, much the way it inspires everyone else that reads it in the meantime. And I get to be a part of the little things like haircuts and outfits and sports and everything. :) Does this sound like a guilt trip? I'm so sorry, then. :) Do it if you can, don't stress if you don't, and never under-value it if you do it.
Love you! -chelle

Michelle, you are the best, seriously! That is exactly what I needed to hear. I do enjoy writing about my kids and the things that are going on in our lives. I just wish I had more time. Anyways, thanks! Love, you, too!
