I’ve been neglectful of the blog again lately.  I truly mean to post every few days to every week at the most, but I always seem to let it slip through the cracks.  I’ve made resolutions this year that I’ve kept thus far, so blogging more consistently doesn’t seem like that difficult a thing to do.  Any tips/hints for motivation re: blogging daily please let me know.

So what’s new in 2015 for me…

Personally: My divorce is final. It wasn’t as heartbreaking as I thought it would be. Of course there was a huge sense of sadness and loss, but there was also a part of me that felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of me.  It’s been hard on the kids, but I believe that, in the end, this will be the best thing for them. I am now a proud home owner…all mine, no mortgage, no lein, nothing.  That’s another weight off my shoulders. Dating, at this point, is so far away from the agenda I can’t even see the possibility at this moment. I think it’s time to enjoy life for what it has to offer me. I haven’t been “single” since I was 19 years old.  This is like an adventure.

On a not so pleasant note, we are having a lot of problems with J and his video game addiction.  He’s still being punished from the last time when he got caught taking his 3DS to school and then being flip with the principal about being late to class because of it; he’s got 2 weeks of a 2 month grounding left. He got caught lying about and playing video games behind our backs.  He seems to think it’s all some sort of game and that as long as he can ride out the punishments, I don’t think he cares.  Any suggestions here would be appreciated.

Will update later today or tomorrow re: knitting in 2015….

  1. My advice for blogging more often is just to share what’s on your mind when you feel like sharing it, it doesn’t have to be long either but a blog is a great way to share thoughts with likeminded people who will most likely be interesting in hearing it. My other suggestion is choosing a day of the week when you post about a certain thing, like for me since I love to knit socks, I post about my sock projects on Sundays, but all week I will be thinking about what I want to post on Sunday and working on my socks so by the time Sunday rolls around I know what I want to write about and then it’s easier to do.

    Thanks for the writing suggestions. Very helpful. I need to just do it. I tend to be too self-conscious about things and edit my thoughts too much before publishing it.

  3. I know how you feel, I edit what I wrote a fair bit before I publish too but I don’t think that it’s a bad thing at all to think about what you are going to say before you say it.
