SOOOooo...

Saturday, June 12, 2010

My blogging may become sporadic over the next week, or two. Or more.

It's due to several reasons.

It is due to the fact that Cayman has been having 2, 3, sometimes 4 appointments a week. It's been busy.

It is also due for the fact that I have been buried in a couple good books that I am currently reading.

It is also due for the reason that I have been so busy still trying to get my photography hobby/business started. I just do not have the time like I desire to spend on it and I have been blessed to have received such an out pour of clients coming forth. I am so behind in all the details and I just do not like that. So I will be playing catch up as I have several more photo shoots ahead of me yet. The response has meant so much to me and turns out people actually like the photos I take. Uh, who knew? It's truly a dream opportunity for me and I'm beaming from ear to ear over it and feeling some comfort that perhaps God has led me to something that can help secure our family as we pay off each year's hefty medical bills.

Additionally, my sporadic blogging will be due to the fact that Cayman's toddler-ness is in full bloom. She is keeping me busy. I am blessed to spend my entire day occupying her short attention spans, wiping marker off her precious face, sweeping my floors multiple times a day, bathing the stickiness off of her, picking up the toy trails she leaves all over the house, and fixing her like a gazillion different meals to find something that will satisfy that picky-eating palate of hers.

Cayman's first time drawing on herself.
Blue ink.


Finally, probably the main reason is due to the fact that my mind is a little preoccupied by a little something that I have been sweetly blessed with and am so excited to share with you...
