Let down....

And no I am not talking about breastfeeding let down...but I am talking about letting yourself down, letting others down or whatever else. 

I'm get a little frustrated....I'm busy, I work full time, take care of three girls, up keep the house, spend time with my family and on my free time at night when the girls go down...I blog because it is something that I enjoy doing and review products for my family because again it is something that I enjoy doing.  Also in a couple months, I will be starting school again.

Anyway, sometimes things may be gotten to later, because other things have to come first.  Such as my kids are my priority and they ALWAYS come first.  This is the case with any mother/parent and then my husband. He is not second, he too is first but the kids are up there with him. So, sometimes at night the kids are up later than they should be which causes me less time to blog...so this means I let down someone...So, in terms basically what I am trying to say "Im sorry!"

Here as of late, I have been working on getting my own domain. It is a work in progress and something that I'm serious about but something that to me (and maybe not others who have done this) it takes a lot of time and research.  Sarah from MMMH has been a great help with answering my questions, but still I'm doing my own research and trying to figure things out with it. So, in terms it has put me a little behind working on some posts.  So, forgive me, just trying to make my blog a better place and really want to get companies names out there.  I love doing it and my family does to, we have had a great time so far, just want to further get myself out there and think that getting my own domain will help me do that in some aspects.  This is just one way in the right direction of getting my blog makeover that I have been wanting.  (Still looking for someone who wants to help me get a complete makeover, haha)

With that said...I'm just a mommy like most of you who is married to my life partner with wonderful kids and I stand behind the work I do as a mommy, as a wife, as an employee and as a reviewer and I think I do a pretty dang good job at what I do. (No not trying to boast myself or anything, just being honest because that is what I am about -- honesty)!

This was just a vent!  So if you read this far, thanks for listening!

You are doing a great job!! You do not have to say sorry for anything.

WOW! I'm just wondering how you ever have time to sleep. :) WHEW!!! Don't worry I'm a new follower but think you are doing great! Not sure how you are doing all this and am thinking your day HAS to have more than 24 hours. lol

Keep up the great work and kudos for making sure your kids and your husband are number 1!

What first came to my mind was let down during nursing. LOL.

You haven't let me down. I know with it being so nice out that I haven't been on the computer as much. But I'm not going to apologize for it. I'm making me happy and my kids. So don't you go apologizing for what you need to do. :)

Heather said...

as long as your husband and kids are loved and taken care of that's all that matters. Who cares about us! It's just a blog! I do love reading it though and look for a new post by you on my little dashboard! Good luck with all your research! I can't wait to see your new site

You're doing a great job! I understand the difficult balance between blogging and family life and everyone should be understanding of that. We all get overwhelmed and our famlies should come first! Thanks for the mention :) I love your blog so keep it up. The domain change will work great and I was completely nervous when I did it too :)

I was in your same position a few years ago, tired, frustrated, overworked and feeling a bit overwhelmed too. Our family life was suffering because I was being pulled in so many directions, some of my own making. I finally realized I could say NO to things that took me away from the most important people in my life, my husband and 5 children and no one would think any less of me and the world wouldn't explode if I just slowed things down.

Don't stress and be good to yourself and your family first. Every other concern and interest will find it's proper place in time.

Women tend to think they must accomplish everything NOW. I have learned, we live a very long time and there is a time and a season for everything...whatever time we have is precious so make it count for things you and your family can share making memories.

You should not feel the need to apologize for being a great mom and wife. I'm sure your readers, who are probably mostly moms, completely understand if you can't post on a regular basis, especially when you are looking into making your blog even more fantastic for them. I definitely understand how busy life is with family, and I just have one child! I'm sorry if anyone has made you feel that you are letting down your readers. I for one don't think you are at all. Your family should (as it does) always, always come first. :-)

Thanks guys. I wrote this last night and it was one of my autoposts.

I really appreciate all the kinds words that have been said, it does mean a lot.

It was just one of those days and I feel like I was letting everyone down, even myself.
