My New Year's resolution is to keep up with blogging. It is easy to get tired and overwhelmed and decide there just isn't time for it, but I have recently reminded myself how important it is for my mental health.
It was a major adjustment when I started working from home. I love it, especially since it allows me to be home with Jayden everyday, but I do miss having co-workers.
My days are spent with children, so the adult interaction that comes from blogging and tweeting is absolutely necessary.
Blogging is also a healthy outlet for all my thoughts. I find that the longer I go without blogging, the more anxiety I feel. So, for 2011 I have made a promise to myself that I will make the time for it. Even if my husband comes home and asks me why the clean laundry is still sitting in the laundry baskets on the bedroom floor after 4 days. (Why put it away when you can just wear things right out of the basket? Who needs drawers?)
I also want to keep up with blog reading and commenting. I've been trying to do blog reading when I can, but commenting gets a little harder since I am often one handed when I am reading. In the meantime, please know your blog comments are amazing and always appreciated. Just on my last post, your comments gave me great ideas and reassurance that we are doing okay. (I am thinking we might need a video monitor.)
What are your New Year's Resolutions?
