a little milestone

Sometimes I have not a clue as to why exactly I spend many early mornings, late nights, or precious nap times tapping away at this keyboard.  Regardless, I do indeed have a milestone to announce.  This is the 100th post I have written.  It seems pretty miniscule in the grand scheme of accomplishments, really because it is, but this here site has brought me quite a bit of joy over the last 8 months.  I don’t always feel like writing, I don’t always feel like being very crafty or even baking but every once in a while the motivation of, “but I can blog about it” comes in handy and then I do.  Holding myself accountable for coming up with the answer to “what are we going to do today” and trying (so very hard) to make it blog-worthy has been good for me.  That was my thought on why I would start this old thing in the frist place.  And what do you know?

But, truly it has done so much more.  I found my spark for writing again.  Mostly I found a mode to say all those things you can’t just chat about to your two-year old and ten month old that sometimes a stay at home mom longs to do.  At night when I sink my ears under the water in a hot bath tub I rehearse out loud some options of what I could type up the next day… or just someday.  And you know, I like this.  A lot actually.

It has been a fantastic way to chart time when it has been quite honestly very very blurry.  Since Rowan’s birth time has gone at break neck pace.  I can click around on this virtual diary and look back at all that has happened.  With out this, it is quite possible most of this year would sadly be forgotten due to insurmountable nights of no sleep and more often than not chaos (the good kind of course).

So for this I am glad.  Who knows if anyone will continue to enjoy reading this.  To be frank; I don’t mind one iota if no one does.  This one, while  it’s content is mostly never is about me, is for me.  Here is to the next 1-0-0!
