The New Schedule Around Here

I've spent some time in the last few weeks thinking about this blog.  At the end of February I will have been blogging for three years!  Wow.  I didn't think it was something I would do for so long.

Blogging has been a big blessing for me during the past few years.  It's given me a way to connect with all of you, which is especially great as a stay at home mom.  It's pushed my creativity.  It's helped me accomplish more than I think I ever would have without.  It has stretched me a lot.  And, in the past year it's helped our family financially, which was a huge blessing.

It has also brought challenges.  It's always tough to balance everything on my plate.  The last few months with morning sickness really dragged me down and I considered just stopping altogether.  I've had a few other things happen that made me question my desire to keep at it.

After thinking about all of it, I've decided I want to keep blogging, but I want to refocus on things I really want to do right now.  When I did that reader survey months ago it was great to have everyone's thoughts, but it also made things complicated in my mind.  I felt pressure to blog about the things each one of you wanted rather than the things I wanted to and I kind of felt overwhelmed.

So I've decide to remodel my schedule here and make sure it's geared toward the things I truly want to do.  I think that if I'm doing what I love, then chances are you'll enjoy it more too.  Here's what it's going to look like around here.  It's a daily schedule, but there might be days when I don't get around to blogging as well.


Monday - Mommy School.  I try to do something fun with my boys on Fridays, so that way it'll be easy for me to blog about it on Monday.  It'll be a lot like the series I did last summer - educational, fun ideas to get kids thinking.

Tuesday - On Tuesdays I'll share a regular craft which means sewing, decorating, or something like that.

Wednesday - I'm changing Wednesdays this year.  After 2 years of Wake Up Wednesday I thought I'd try something different.  I still plan on challenging myself to do good things, but I won't be blogging about it for now.  Wednesdays will be "What I LOVE Wednesdays."  I will mention music, products, tips, or anything that I love.  It's not a sponsored thing, but a way to share things I think you'd love.

Thursday - same as Tuesday.

Friday - This will still be a feature Friday, where I try someone else's idea and link you to their tutorial.

Saturday and Sunday will remain Soapbox Saturday and Sunshine Sunday just like before.
