I just realized my blog turned four years old last month.
I\’ve been so preoccupied with the baby and my husband\’s campaign and my six-year-old\’s first week of school it just slipped my mind. And I\’m not quite sure what to think about it. I feel like my blogging here has really slacked off this year. I\’ve been reading, and making notes of what I think, but am often too tired to write something really coherent or thoughtful. I\’ve been following everyone else in google reader, but often short on time, or tied up with baby in arms, so don\’t type lots of comments (which means I get fewer and fewer visitors here). So it\’s just been very quiet over here, lately.
I\’m hoping someone out there is still reading what I write here, so that when I get the time/energy to put more effort into this, it will reflect back again. I\’m not going away, or giving up! just have my focus diverted elsewhere for a while.
I do have a sort of announcement, and this seems as good a place as any to say it. My husband pretty much volunteered me to be on the library board of our local branch. He said the board consists of lots of older folks and they\’re looking for younger people to get involved. They accepted him as a member because he was there offering his services, but he said they really want me! Of course he told them all about my reading obsession, but I hope he also mentioned I have a small nursing infant who takes up a lot of my time and won\’t sit quietly through long functions! I\’m not much of a public person so I\’m not sure what this will amount to, if I actually take the position. I like to stay in the background, and do things quietly… We\’ll see what comes of it! I\’d love to help the library out, just not sure what I would do.
