Priorities

I think this is the longest unintentional blogging break I have taken since starting this blog a couple years ago. Sorry for the silence.

Thank you for checking in on me. It is nice to be missed. Nothing too unusual, just pregnancy finally really wearing me down. My energy levels took a serious nose dive last weekend and haven't really recovered.

I did have a good doctor's appointment this afternoon that confirmed that my body is indeed starting to prepare itself for birth, but I still don't expect to meet this baby for another four weeks. I have never gone "early" no matter how much I felt like I couldn't make it another day.


As much as I love blogging, when I need to cut something, it is one of the first things to go. So, homeschooling is getting done, Bible time is intact, we are eating three times a day, and we have clean clothes to put on each morning. But, aside from that I've been trimming the fat from my schedule.


That said, I do have a number of half written posts that I hope to get up in the next couple days . . . a review of a great speech product, some of our work on fossils, and maybe a weekly wrap up.

Whether I do much or not, life grows on.
