For the first time in 5 years of keeping a weblog I have don't have the zeal and desire to compose regular posts. I've been doing this gig for 5 years. What is the average shelf life of a blog anyway? I've been hanging out on facebook and once I post there I don't have the energy to come over here and post something clever. Maybe as video killed the radio star, facebook killed the blog?
I'm not packing it up just yet. I'll probably make some changes to the design and spruce things up a bit. That always gets me jazzed just like when I move furniture around it makes me want to have people over and entertain.
So, that's what's going on with the blog. As for me and my family, well...
Tootie is finishing her last couple days of Kindergarten. She is growing and changing at an alarming rate. The Tooth Fairy has been very busy in the Joybucket house. Sometimes I look at her and see a young woman and sometimes I see my chubby, scared 10 month old on the first day we met.
My husband and I have been busy starting a new Church. It is both the hardest AND of the most fulfilling things I've ever done. I'm about to turn 40 (in 18 days). It is high time I figure out what and Who I stand for and get about putting my feet and hands towards that end. I have been devoting a majority of my time lately on this new little thing God has knitted together. It's quite amazing, really, to see what He has already done.
That is what I've been doing. This summer I anticipate many hours at the pool, some science experiments, long walks, driveway firepit gatherings, clothes stained with a combination of bubble liquid/sand/chalk, backyard skits and perhaps a talent show too. Oh, the glorious age of being 6!
