Change is hard. But life changes usually come with clarity and growth. The good kind, you know?
Let me explain..
Over at my personal blog today, I'm sharing my 'Day in the Life" being a part-time working mom, and part-time STAHM, and I thought I was busy, but after attempting to document it (with a failed attempt) I found it to be down right exhausting. It is tough to fit everything in my day, and sometimes (a lot of the time) I don't. I have weeks when I am running on fumes to keep up with every thing, and 'extras' fall by the wayside (like the week before last week).
It is for these reasons that I've decided that I will no longer be a main contributor to Twin Talk. When Meredith and I decided to start blogging on this little web space called Twin Talk Blog, I hadn't a clue the effort it would take to keep up with all of the above, and my own personal blog as well. This blog, through your reader support and input, has proven such a success, I am overwhelmed with where we have come and what we have accomplished in such a short amount of time. From the beginning, I had zero intention of leaving 3 Ladies and Their Gent behind (it has been documenting my married and now family life for nearly 10 years), and planned to continue it, along with writing material for Twin Talk Blog, but that proved to be tougher than I thought, especially when things at work picked up and started to consume much more time at home that not.
It took some serious evaluation of what needed to change and this was one of among several places I needed to reassess my commitments. I HATE doing that, but my accountability partner (Jordan) provided excellent support in my decisions, and gave great feedback to help me make these, rather difficult decisions. Although I am sad to leave Twin Talk Blog, I am confident that it will be just as amazing with Meredith's sole expertise behind the scenes.
Thanks for the love, support, and understanding. Love you guys!
