In the month of March, I made a goal to blog everyday that month. I think there were only one or two days in that month that I actually had to try hard to think of something to post. NOW I have more posts in a month than there are days. I am not totally caught up right now. I still have recipes that I have made that I want to post and so on a so forth. But now I am wondering if I post too much. I wonder if I should make a goal to see if I can only post once or twice a week. Then again, its my journal and if I do that... then I will stop documenting what is going on and it is fun for me to go back and read some of these posts. The only reason I even bring this up is because .... even though this is my journal and I shouldn't care what other people think about it, I don't want people to get bored with me. With the exception of my last post of the amazing dress my sister made for me, I don't really get a lot of comments. I shouldn't think comments on my blog are a big deal, but when I don't get comments, I feel like people are not reading, or its not interesting. I also feel like comments are half the fun of a blog. Every time I log on and I see that I have a new comment, its like a present at Christmas. Wondering what its going to say and who its going to be from. Makes me feel special. I do realize that I post EVERYDAY and sometimes more than once a day and that not everyone is going to leave comments everyday (unless your my family, then I kind of expect it and am way sad when its not there) *Side note* I love that some of my friends know who my mom is and my sisters Jamie & Lori because of all the comments they leave on my blog. SO, I don't want to become boring AND I don't want to be addicted either. I don't feel like I am. I mean... I don't put blogging as a priority above anything else... I just do it when I have time, but I happen to have a few minutes of down time everyday. I don't want to become obsessed either... which is why I maybe should take a blogging break? I don't know. Just thoughts that I have had. I am not going to lie, I do enjoy it. It is another way for me to socialize..... and I AM a social butterfly.
Speaking of being social, this last weekend was one of a few times I wished that I could clone myself and be lots of different places at the same time. Don't get me wrong, I am glad that I went to Newport Beach and spent the weekend with some of my best friends, but after hearing about the fun people had in my ward, and the fun my friends and family had back home... I wished I was there too. I just hate missing out on anything. I was the kid that was put to bed at bedtime every night but was always so sad I was missing out on fun with the people who got to stay up later. Why do I care so much? Speaking of, I am going to be feeling the same way this weekend. I have fun plans going out of town (again) with my friends, which I am excited for, but I am going to be missing out on my Grandma's 80th birthday party in AZ that a lot of my family and extended family is going to. I didn't find out soon enough to make it into my plans. Sadness.
I love to travel... A LOT... but I have been doing so much of it lately, that going on the next trip is not as exciting. All the trips are blending together because I have been gone every weekend and I don't have enough time to recover from my last trip in order to get pumped about my next trip. After this weekend I will get some time to chill at home. In no way does that mean I will not be busy with fun plans, I just won't be going out of town for the fun. I am still looking forward to some big trips ahead.
On another note. I feel like a reptile. Why you ask? Remember how I got super sunburned this weekend and looked like a raccoon? Well... now I look like a lizard shedding my skin. Its kind of gross actually. One of my co-workers even pointed it out on my back today. Yuck. Too bad I don't have my mom and Jamie here to peel the skin off for me. They used to like that.... see who could peel off the biggest piece. ha ha.
