Epic Fail

Well. So much for my New Year's resolution. Let's see... a grand total of two blog posts for 2010 and the year only has 28 more days. That has got to be a new low.

Looking back I know why I wasn't writing. So, so many reasons, and none of them good enough. This year has not been one of my best. I am looking forward to 2010 ending and a whole new year beginning with fresh hopes, dreams, and plans. This past year has held a lot of sorrow for me and in my struggle to deal with it, writing was the last thing I felt I had the energy for. Now, in hindsight, I do regret that fact. I regret not being candid and writing when the pain was fresh. I regret not documenting this year in my children's lives. They are always changing and when I read the old blog posts about the kids I always have a smile on my face. I'm sad that they're aren't any for 2010. There are barely any from 2009! Especially for Micah. He went from a cute little blob to an talking, walking, whirlwind of a boy and there is no reflection of that in my blog. So, so sad.

Alright, wallowing in regrets will get me nowhere. Once again I will resolve to do better, and with that resolve firm in hand I look to the future and it is bright and full of writing. I'll kick it off with taking a picture a day for the month of December and committing to blogging at least once a month in 2011. That's a reasonable goal. There you have it, keep me accountable!

  1. Well, all you can do is the best you can do. I must say I loved your two posts this year! :op and I did not do much better, considering that my blog is supposed to replace my missionary newsletter!
