I just realized what a complete mess my site is. Broken links. Unfinished travel pieces. Ugh.

I sat down to do ONE SMALL THING.

It turned into about a hundred big projects. And here I am, geeking out after I just made fun of people who spend too much time on the Web.

I'm not done. Not by a long shot. In fact, I'm hating my site more than ever. I want to redo everything. But it's bedtime. And I really don't have the time to redo my website right now.

Unless there was a very cold, rainy long weekend coming up that no one told me about and all of my stuff decided to pack itself?

Your site is fine.
I enjoy reading your blogs. You should write a book. You are very good with words and the way you describe things.
Speaking of books, Emily Giffin, LOVE HER! Something Borrowed and Something Blue, great books, good read.

Thanks for that.

Actually, your comment about my writing is pretty timely.

I was just thinking on the weekend about what my unattained dreams are.

I had to think hard. At first I thought that the family/kids thing was my only dream.

After peeling back some layers, however, I realize that I do have dreams. Or did, until I tried to dump them and forget about them as I thought they ran contrary to other dreams I had (including career and relationship goals).

I want to travel. A lot. Everywhere. Exotically. Learning important things about the world. Meeting people who touch my life intimately and change me, even in the short time that I know them.

And I really do want to write. A book? Maybe. I just don't like to talk about it because I don't know if I can do it.

Isn't that silly?

Having children changes your whole life completely, in a good way of course!

I know that some of the things that I thought were important for me in my life completely changed.
My kids are my world now, my passion. I want them to learn, see, and do everything! Every decision my husband and I make, our children are at the centre of it. I want for my children more than for myself. They are what makes me happy.

I'm not real great with expressing my thoughts clearly. I guess what I am trying to say is don't kill yourself worrying that you're not getting everything out of life that you want (although it would be a waste for you not to try to write that novel, a failed attempt would be much easier to handle than living with regret later!)
I don't think it is possible to accomplish all of our dreams. I guess you have to pick and choose whats most important and go from there.
So there you go, some advice from Annoymous? (no not advice)....some heartfelt comments from a mom who is passionate about her kids, but is missing adult conversation...yeah that's it!!
