Some of you may have noticed that my posts have been sparse and few. I wanted to take this opportunity to share a glimpse at my life right now so that y'all know why I have not been around as much as I would like.
There are a few contributing factors.
Factor 1: As many of you know I have three wonderful kiddos and a hubby that travels. Mr. Whimsy's travels come in spurts. Well let me just say that it has been like a whale coming to the surface over here these past couple of months. Spurting in full! He has been from one coast to the other and then some. Keeping life running with three kids when he isn't around is a full time and a HALF job which leaves me little opportunity to spend time on my computer.
Factor 2: Little Miss Whimsy, all 70 lbs of her 11 year old mighty self is very involved in competitive cheerleading. For anyone who doesn't know anything about this sport, well let me be the first to tell you it is a time and a HALF job in itself. Especially when you are crazy like me and volunteer to be a team mom. The season is in full swing. What this means is we are traveling A LOT. Usually two compeitions per month. These are not around the corner. We are off to D.C., Atlanta, VA and the list goes on. Mr. Whimsy comes home from business travels and Little Miss Whimsy and I leave for a cheer competition. Whew! Throw in 3 hour practices 3 times a week for her as well as me running around making things happen and meeting dead lines for her team as any good team mommy should and well I'm sure you are getting the idea here.
Factor 3: My health. Specifically my back health. I have been suffering through some back issues the past year and half. The back has been getting worse and worse. I will be having surgery on my back March 9th. What this means is........I am a mad woman. I am determined to finish all the projects I have underway before I go into surgery. Little Miss Whimsy's room. Eldest Master Whimsy's room is another project I am currently working on as well. I just don't know how or what I will be able to get done once the surgery happens. I know that I will be taking it extremely easy for 3 months after the surgery. I doubt I will be getting too many projects done after March 9th! So I am in panic mode to make eveything that needs (translated as I want) to happen, happen before March 9th!
What this all means for my wonderful blogging family is you have not been seeing much of me and most likely will being seeing even less of me over the next couple months. I will be trying my hardest to share what I have going on and hopefully after my surgery will be up and about enough to do some small projects. Who knows maybe I will be on the computer more once I have this surgery. Maybe it will force me to slow down a bit! At any rate I want y'all to know I appreciate you. I love reading your comments. I love visiting your blogs and sharing with you.
Know that I will be on here every minute I possibly can over the next couple months. Have a blessed weekend my friends.
