Blogging. I wonder if anyone has ever done a WFMW post about blogging and how it works for them. Hmmm. Maybe I am a pioneer. Maybe not. Anyway.
Blogging really works for me. I have always been a fairly social person but only have a couple true close friends...not a huge circle of girlfriends. Since having kids, my personal life has pretty much been put on hold. I used to get my nails done, tan, go out to lunch/dinner with my friends/family/husband, go shopping an hour away, take weekend trips. I was able to be pretty independent and do what I wanted when I wanted.
Having kids is so life altering, or at least it has been for me. They are the center of my world on all levels and once everything is done for them, I don't have anything left for me.
In comes blogging. I am not even sure exactly how I got started, but I am so glad I did. Blogging gives me a chance to have something that is just mine that I can do when and where I want. Even though I am a working mommy most of the time, I go to work, pick up the kids, and come home to start the evening routine. Blogging makes me feel more connected to the real world, especially other moms. I have made friends since starting this little adventure and truly enjoy being able to sit at the computer in the evenings with a glass (or frozen mug) of wine to "catch up" with my friends' daily happenings, as well as share mine. Blogging definitely works for me.
