Post Gaps

I worry sometimes about the gaps here on ihopeiwinatoaster, I worry that in later years the boys might think I wasn't thinking of them or there was nothing noteworthy or that I stopped caring or...

Well, you get the picture.  I have plenty of material, so much in fact that I would like to do a post a day for the month of September to get caught up so I can begin to use the fodder which will be coming home from school this year.

The problem is, and I mention this often, to the point of obsession, I can't seem to find the time and that really frustrates me.  Anyone who takes care of a household knows the feeling, I could list, right now, twenty - at least - things I should be doing right now.  I'll get some of them done, others I will put off, and, truth be told, this blog is one of things that always seems to get put off.  I put off my music as well, in fact just today I cased up my guitars and music and put them on a storage shelf because I needed the space on my workbench, which seconds as a music area, to sort out some paint and painting supplies.

Sometimes, I want to apologize to myself for it, but, I guess I don't want it enough, or I don't have very good time management skills or, and this is the best guess, I am overwhelmed.

And, on top of everything else, today I am going to use some pictures my dear wife already posted on Facebook of the boys first day in Third Grade:

I think this one is pretty good, the look, well, reasonable ,

This one seems nice enough.

This one is probably my favorite, though.  It really captures the spirit of the summer break don't you think.

I, of course, realize that this is a lackluster post.  I might not even it post on the Facebook page.  But, the laundry is on its final spin, the grocery store is calling and there is painting and yardwork and...

From Marci's "... things you don't expect to hear from the backseat ..."

"I have not found my true potential yet."

Ain't that the truth...


  1. Eternal problems for the person who runs the house. My ancient advice is to make time for yourself or awfully quick they will be gone and you will have no idea who you are nor what it was you really wanted to do with YOUR life.

  2. Every time I don't write anything for more than a few days, I feel like I have to come back with something amazing, or else... I'm not sure what else--it's a debilitating feeling, though, so good for you for not letting it stop you.
