I have been "starting" a blog for at least 3 years now. I have had this blog since May 30th--empty. Part of it was I was at a loss for words. I love to journal and write my snail mail pals all over the world. For some reason, however, this "blog" box was super intimidating!
The other, bigger, part of it is that I have absolutely no concept of time and I also get distracted easily. Truthfully, I thought I just started this blog last week! I am my worst enemy when it comes to getting things accomplished. I always start, but generally get too bored/too side-tracked to finish....and then I struggle with the "itch" of knowing I should be doing something other than the random activity I have chosen at the time.
Well, I am finally "scratching that ITCH". I have been *itching* to Blog forEVER. I have been *itching* to enter a craft show. I have been *itching* to lose what has now turned into 50 pounds (loud, dying, shriek). I have been *itching* to come out from the rock under which I have hidden for the past three years.
***Disclaimer*** Motherhood and Wifeydom are great. I love my family and I live for them. My husband is tremendous and no one could love me better than he does. My daughter is amazing and hilarious, and I literally wake up each day specifically just to see her face.....But there is something inside of me that is dying to be unleashed. I was never meant to be a woman bound by the drudgery of middle class family life. I was meant to get out into the world and accomplish bigger, see more, do more. I was not supposed to suspend my life's journey upon my third tri-mester of pregnancy. I'm not bitter or resentful.... I am longing... *itching*... to GROW!
