I used to read my blog list every night. I liked Google Reader, then moved to Blog Lovin' when Google Reader went away. I would lay in bed and read my favorites and chuckle and groan and sometimes cry. I'd laugh seeing the pictures, rejoicing in the progress of an adoption story, or mourn a loss or heartache.
I cannot think of the last time I read a blog post. No clue. I think it's been since my little one came. Surely? Maybe not, though?
I write blog posts. Because I love this outlet of emotion and creativity.
But I haven't had time to read them lately.
We do seem to be in more of a school routine. Routine is necessary for all children, but it's a magnified need for kiddos from hard places. The transition from summer to school was a bumpy ones, but it does seem to be smoothing out. She's falling asleep about 7:30-7:45, which means I have a couple of hours of an evening to decompress. Sometimes that's a laundry list of "MUST DO THIS!" and sometimes it means I can curl up with a book or watch a favorite DVRed show.
But, at least for right now, blogs aren't getting read.
Maybe some day...
