1 - I miss blogging and I don't, all at the same time. Mainly, I think I miss interacting with you, my reader.
2 - I have recently stopped washing my hair with baking soda. I also have not been washing it with shampoo (because after 2+ years of baking soda and apple cider vinegar, I have none). Yeah, that means I am just using water. Yes, this is a short-term solution. I hesitate to go back to shampoo, because I do feel that it strips too much natural oil. However, I am suspicious that the years of baking soda might have straightened my hair, and I like having wavy hair. The straight hair could just be the result of my last pregnancy with a girl. All those hormones can do funny things.
3 - I am really bad at staying on the gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, eggwhite-free diet for the above mentioned girl. She is down to one feeding a day, and I can't wait to be able to drink a quart of raw milk each day again (though it might be less since I will no longer be nursing!)
4 - I *might* be ready to be done having kids. I am not totally certain, but a small house sure makes it tempting.
5 - Small houses are HARDER to keep clean and housecleaning has never been my gift. All this considered, I am feeling rather good about the state of my house and how much purging I have done to make this space work.
6 - However, I am still really bad about hand-washing dishes and our dishwasher broke. We got rid of the broken dishwasher and I like the kitchen space better. Now I think I'll have to get rid of some dishes!
7 - I tried some exercise thing tonight called Tabata. As a result, I can't really move my legs, thus I am blogging rather than hand-washing the rest of tonights dishes.
8 - Homeschooling is being held rather loosely this year. I read "Boys Adrift" by Dr. Leonard Sax, and thus I do not feel guilty about waiting on more formal schooling. (for the record, mainly in case my mother is reading, Soren has all his basic phonics, can sound out most anything, and can count to 100. He also does basic arithmetic - DO NOT PANIC)
9 - I am also, as a result of the book, coveting people who can send their boys to one of the many awesome all-boys schools mentioned in the book (I mean, it's only, financially-speaking, like sending your kids to college for their entire K-12 schooling. That's totally realistic, right?)
10 - I have started two other blogs since I "stopped" blogging in July. I don't write on them either. If I get anything going, I'll be sure to let you know.
What about you? Any confessions for me since I've left the blog-o-sphere?
