Too Many Circles

I made it to day 3 of the 7 days challenge. It's a good thing I didn't sign up for that long term. I just don't have time to take a self portrait AND post it in the same day. I've got stuff to do.

Today I deleted my twitter account. I like facebook better. In fact I like facebook enough I might be deleting my myspace soon. I mean how many social networking circles does one girl need? I have 5 friends that don't have facebook and follow me on myspace. That seems like a silly small number to be worth all the extra effort.

As it is I've got blog stuff to maintain, friends I actually talk to almost every day, a family to spend time with, clean up after and cook for. I've got playdates, swimming plans, library story times and all sorts of toddler circles I'm starting to be pulled into.

I work a full time job and I do a couple hobbies part time at best. I've got vacations to plan in August and October as well as a renaissance faire trip in September and the upcoming local county fair and company picnic (those last 2 are one event- welcome to small town life).

Not to mention I have a very good friend and 2 sister-in-laws about to have new babies any second now. Not that I talk to Jon's family a whole heck of a lot but I still plan on escaping to see new babies when they come if I can...well at least the one that's local. And the friend has asked me to be in the labor room (for now if she keeps the plan she had) which I am very honored to do.

I'd rather be focusing my time, energy and money on things I actually enjoy. Like planning trips, making big meals for the people I love and capturing as much of Layla's youth as possible on film.

Speaking of Layla's youth on film... someone pointed out to me yesterday that they couldn't log into Layla's blog for the last month. I did some site changes back when I was home bored recovering from the miscarriage. If you can't log on, let me know. I didn't delete anyone but it looks like it reset some permissions or something.

Plus Layla's second birthday is coming. Anyone who knows me knows I'm going to be planning that any minute now even though it's not until the end of September.

What a truly blessed family we are!
