I've been feeling guilty about the fact that I haven't written in quite sometime and that my posts are getting to be quite rare.  It's not that I don't like writing--I do; or that I don't have anything to say--again, I do; it's just that I don't seem to make the time for it these days.

In fact, I barely make the time to read the few blogs that I follow and am a little bit pleased that I am not the only one that seems to be posting less often, giving me fewer blogs to read through on a regular basis.

So to alleviate my feelings of guilt over not writing, and to get over my new found compulsion to make sure that everything is thoroughly  researched and just right before publication; I'm just going to start writing. I'm not to the point of committing to writing every day yet, but I will commit to at least three times per week throughout the summer--allowing for the occasional exception due to vacation or a kid's camp away from computer access.  You may see the weekly Friday/Saturday/Sunday posts as I scramble to make my three posts each weekend, but there it is--three posts per week--feel free to call me on it if they fail to materialize.

It's Monday and I'm counting this as one for this week.  I realize that as a post, it's not much; but it is what it is and I have too much to do and a nap to take before going in to work the mid-shift tonight. The week ahead will be full and I'm looking forward to the coming weekend when we get to see Aaron and Jenny; but I owe you two more posts and I'll make certain to deliver them before next week rolls around.

I wouldn't be able to post on most days if I didn't get up so early and have my free hour before I leave for work. Don't feel pressured...we'll enjoy reading your blog whenever you post it!

Any post is a good post.

Good to have a post from you and also to know that I'm not the only one feeling guilty around here.

I've also dropped back from being an every day blogger. Now its an alternate day blogger that usually misses a day towards the end of a week. I'll try harder.

John. . . . I too am going to random blog. . . . just kind of what's on my mind. . . . I'd kind of gotten away from reading and writing, but the other day I made a basket up for a new family that just moved to Texas. . . . I received the nicest note from the lady. . . . she said "You outta blog you are such a good writer." So here I am . . . . just writing and reading and trying to be a good citizen of this earth.
