~Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight~

I've realized something about myself. Well, re-realized actually. I am a very busy lady. A very busy lady who is, inside, much more like a slow cooked meal or a well steeped chai. I like to take my time to do the things I love to do. I like to MAKE the time to do the things I love to do. Somehow, lately I've felt like I have no time at all. Like I'm running all day and still 10 steps behind....or 1000 steps, depending on the day.

So it occurred to me...I NEED to re-prioritize my life. To find the time, make the time to do the things I love. To have conversations on the phone with the people in my life instead of dropping an email or facebooking them. To write (like, with a pen/paper/crayons) in my journal and play my guitar. To snuggle in bed with my kids rather then running upstairs to finish up some "work" on the computer. Really there are sooooo many things that I could do with the few moments in the day that are found between meals, outings, lessons and chores. There is magic here, between these walls.....between this earth and sky. And me, Jenn, Melodious Mama is on her way to discover it. I'm saying goodbye to bloggersville and journeying onwards, ready to explore the unexplored, to re-explore the sorrowfully neglected. So, to all of you I say goodbye for now, until we meet again!


~goodnight sweetheart!

I'll miss you, Jenn! Come back when you can and if you can't, know that you're in my thoughts and I'm wishing you the best!

So, so relate to your well written post. Might I steal it? I was having the same exact thought this morning. I don't think I am leaving just yet, but the time is drawing near:) Lucky for me I don't have to miss you... See ya tomorrow sis.

I have to echo C's sentiment...I don't have to miss you.

Congratulations on breaking free of something alluring but, in all honesty, not even on the top ten list of life priorities. Have fun rediscovering that time for yourself and your family!

Really? But I was just getting to know you. But, I get it. I have been thinking the same thing myslef, only keeping a chronicle for Mal keeps me at it.

Interesting blog here....

I can also relate to that feeling. my posts are always written in the space of 15 minutes because i refuse to donate any more time to the internets!! then that gives me another 15 to read emails & check facebook...and there goes my 30 mins to myself...sigh.
hope all is brewing well :)

Wow, I'm going to miss you. Good luck with doing all the things you love to do. I don't follow you blog all the time, but love seeing how you and your family are doing. I have learned so much from you, from parenting to books. I could go on and on how you have touched and impacted my life as we go through our journey.

I hope you are able to come back occasionally.

Wishing you the best for you and your family.

Kyle and Marion said...

Sorry Jen, I mistakenly mixed you up with another Mama in my comment. That's what happens when I am doing too many things at the same time.

Wishing you lots of time to do all the things you love.

Do you still read your blog comments? I hope so....

Melodious, you are amazing and incredible. And I value everything you say on my blog. And I'm so excited about the photo book you shared with me. I'll be checking it out a bit more before I make the final decision (THANK YOU!).

Please start writing on your blog again!! I look forward to hearing more from you....

xoxo,

Okay, okay- I had to do it. Simply put- it was the best one out there. Super cool baby album to send to Solmon? Check.
