So I said a while back I was going to revamp my site and start blogging regularly from then on. Just as I was preparing to make changes to the design and composing topic lists to write from it hit me..I was about to head out on an 8 day vacation with my family to Florida where I wouldn’t have computer access. So, deflibrating my poor blog just days before another sad hiatus, I decided instead to postpone my “hatch day” (as Tammi coined it)!
We returned from our trip late Saturday night with mounds of laundry and a very sick husband in tow. He had caught what turned out to be a nasty 48-hour stomach virus that had us considering leaving him behind in Florida for a few days to stay with family and recuperate. He decided to make the flight home, choosing the comfort of his own bed and surroundings, despite the discomfort of traveling. It wasn’t easy I’m sure but he survived and is feeling great as of today.
He took one extra day off of work (Monday) so that we could restore our home and lives to working order. I was able to complete the front half of the house but the bedrooms still need some work. I am satisfied though to have completed as much as we did. All the laundry is clean and put away which is a rare treat in this household.
So, personal stuff aside…what to expect from ONE URBAN MOM in the future.
1. As I have stated in my “About Me” page I am a Christian pastors wife. I would like to write more on occasion about who I am in this role and the many blessings as well as struggles that come with this calling (the good, the bad, and the ugly). I am NOT your typical pastors wife and I like to keep it that way.
2. I have many things in life that I can say I am passionate about. I have found myself in particular finding myself vehemently passionate about issues specific to the environment, women’s rights, mothers, and childbirth. I know these can be touchy issues for many so I will state a disclaimer most often when writing on these topics. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel that certain truths are more right than others but I am also a big advocate for each person having a right to opinion which I will personally be expressing here. The reason I believe what I do is because I have an open-mind and I never imagined that in doing so I would find myself the person I am today. SO, I ask all readers to please read also with an open mind. If you disagree and want to talk about it lets talk…
3. I love cooking, sewing, photography, and I am also learning how to knit. I will probably blog a lot about these topics and post project ideas as well as recipes, etc..
4. On Saturdays I will not blog. My family practices something called “Sabbath” which is a day of rest. We have chosen to include ceasing all use of media/electronics on this day (no TV, computers, iphones, etc..).
Keep reading..there’s good stuff to come! I can’t wait to start blog surfing again too…it’s been far to long since I have visited some of my favorite sites.
