Blogging Timefreeze

Blogging Timefreeze


I was going to write a “Fab Five Friday” list yesterday.  I missed “Wordless Wednesday” or “Terribly Twosdays”.   A few days before that, I wanted to post something. 


I must be having some sort of blogger brainfart.  Or it could just be brainfreeze in general, but not the kind you get from drinking a slushy too quickly.  Maybe I have nothing interesting to say.

What do I think it is, honestly?  TIME.  I have no time.  I am writing this in my pajamas at quarter to eleven on a Saturday morning in between bathing my children and emptying the garbages throughout the house so we can actually do something today.  I haven’t even had a chance to get dressed.  Non-stop since 8am this morning.  (And that was sleeping in!)

I’m pretty good at time management, especially now that I am a stay-at-home Mom of two young children and have started my own at-home business on top of my existing teaching schedule, all while supporting a just-as-busy husband.  Some days feel like it will never get done, whatever it is.  Those are the days when I ponder, “I think I am good at managing time…?”

Think about it as an ever-changing way of life.  Each day is different and each day brings about new moods in the people around us, therefore we must be willing to bend a little to make time for the important things.

The little things.

Today, my little thing is this little blog post.  Uninteresting and boring, yes, maybe.  That’s what is on my mind at this very moment, and that’s what I needed to do today to release that thought and free up some room in my overstuffed Mom-brain.  Not to mention I needed to write this blog so I don’t feel bad about not writing.

So, here.

Thank you.  Ahhhh, that feels better.


  1. I really enjoyed reading this post! I am NOT a good time manager. I am both a procrastinator and a perfectionist (bad combination!) Unless I have a deadline (or get really fed up with the status quo), things typically don’t get done. But I will have to learn how to schedule myself, because I’m making the transition to stay-at-home mom. I love your one-day-at-a-time approach, and your willingness to put the schedule to the side when you need to. Thanks for sharing!

    • I have to be honest, I was NEVER this organized in all my life. Having 2 kids so close in age (they’re 18 months apart) has pretty much forced me to be this way 🙂 I, too, am a procrastinator & a perfectionist (great way to put it!), so I was just like you at one point in my life! Trust me, that growing baby will put you right on a schedule whether you like it or not 😉 Yes, take each day as it comes, for sure. There’s always tomorrow. Thank you for sharing your perspective!
