I have noticed lately that I start out the week very ambitious with my blog posts.  I schedule them all out, I organize my thoughts and photos, and then like a steamroller, life wears me down and I get overwhelmed quickly.  And I'm one of those people when I get a little bit behind, I say 'screw it', and let myself fall way behind.
Perhaps you noticed, I didn't blog yesterday.  On book chat day.

My goal was to blog every day (M-F) but I think I will give myself a mid-week break to avoid burnout.

Does anyone else feel this way sometimes?
*deep breath*

Funny thing is, I just posted those Beat the Blogging Blues tips on Monday...and it would seem I need to be taking my own advice right about now.

Well, anyway, I thought I'd share what's been going on with me this week, to give you a peak into my life...

1: I've been pulling my hair out lately trying to keep the house clean.  I feel like I'm chasing my tail daily.  Or rather chasing two very messy kids who never stop moving.  That whole Living Room Redo project I was working on, seems silly at this point.  Redecorate? Ha. I'm killing myself just keeping it clean.
2: When I'm running around all day, some nights I prefer to just curl up with some coffee and the DVR. (yes, I drink coffee at night.  I can't explain it.  I don't stay up very late either)
3/4: Soccer has been kicking my butt lately.  It's four nights a week, and with prep time and squeezing in dinner, it takes up our entire evening.  However, I wouldn't change it for the world.  We love every minute of it and Jonathan is having a blast.


On the bright side, I have been reading a lot lately.  If you remember, I blogged recently about being completely under-whelmed with my reading selections lately.  Well, I finally re-picked up this series.  It's been on my shelf for too long.  I'm glad I decided to give it another try.  I read it in 5 days and I'm already on the sequel (even though I'm disappointed that it doesn't revolve around the same two characters in the first book like I thought it would). Oh well, I still expect to love it.

This is my TBR shelf.  I have a bad habit of buying new books and ignoring the potential I have sitting right here.  I decided I'm going to chip away at this collection before I add anything else to my shelves.
Does anyone else have this problem?
If you see one on here that I need to attack first, please let me know.

Well, that's all I have for now.  Thanks for listening to me vent.  I promise to have some new, fun stuff next week.
