|Thank you Target Dollar Spot. I couldn't find a small calendar like this anywhere!|
I like lists. I like planning. I drive Kyle insane with all of my "plans". If I have a goal... like most people, that goal will fail/fall through the cracks without planning. So when I decided that I really want to be more consistent with writing in this space, I really needed to sit down and brainstorm and plan it out. The best way for me to do that isn't just to jumble it down, but to put it into a calendar so that I can see my To-Dos a month at a time.
This blog was started so that I could share all of our life changes, and to connect and offer our experiences to others in the medical life. Then I had a kid, and the blog became all about him. I have to be honest. While I love that I have each month of his first year of life documented, I was SO GLAD when I wrote that 1 year post. It felt like a weight was off my shoulders; I felt like I had earned permission for myself to go back to writing about more than just my kid. Don't freak out family; Myles will still be on here, just not the main event anymore.
My goal for a while is to get back in the routine of writing on a regular basis. Mon-Wed-Fri is what I hope to accomplish, and what better way to do that, than to have specific things to write on those days of the week?
While I still have some brainstorming to do, and this space will continue to evolve as I go, I do have some things thought out that I will be making a regular occurrence around here.
- Mondays are a wildcard. Adventuring, photos, thoughts, projects...they will probably be here.
- The first Wed of the month will continue to be the spot for "currently" link-ups.
- The 2nd and 4th Wed will now be "What We're Wearing Wednesday".
- Fridays will now be Foodie Fridays.
- Something med-life related every now and then.
I will miss days, I will move some things around on occasion. Maybe I will get wild and post on a Thursday. Who knows. I will extend grace to myself when I fail, my goal is never for this to be a source of stress, but wholeheartedly a place for me to have something for myself. I think that is important for a stay-at-home mom.
Let me re-welcome you to homegrown in ky. I love hearing from people and try to respond in a timely manner so please don't be shy.
