You may have noticed that my blogging has been sporadic, at best. It’s not that I don’t enjoying coming here and putting my two cents out there. In fact, I enjoy blogging, a lot. But lately I’ve been feeling like I should join the circus. Or at the very least some street side show. I have become a Juggler.
I have quite a few juggling balls on the go right now: Writing, Working, Reading, Blogging.
I prefer to think of my roles (and the long list of tasks that come with them) as hats I wear while juggling. Wife, Friend, Daughter, Aunt, Sister, Employee, Homeowner. I change my hat while trying to keep all the balls in the air. For the most part it’s all about timing. Balls go up, hat gets changed, balls come done. Repeat.
I like to think I do a pretty decent job, but add Christmas into the equation and things go from hectic to insane.
Some balls drop while others seem to get stuck in the air, hanging motionlessly above my head, just beyond my reach. I try to pull them back down, to rotate in something else, but I fail.
And which ball is stuck up in the air? Writing.
While Blogging has dropped and Reading seems to make an occasional appearance, Writing is a constant (so is Working, but that’s not by choice). I’m not complaining. Not even whining a little bit. The fact that my Muse is here and playing nice, thrills me. But I know that in order to keep you folks interested, I need to pick up that Blogging ball and start giving it a toss.
So this is my promise to you. I solemnly swear I am up to no – wait a second, wrong oath. I solemnly swear to post, at the very least, two posts a week until the end of 2011. In 2012, I promise to increase this.
My word has been given. If you see me slacking, please feel free to give me a kick in the ass. I’m sure I’ll deserve it.
