re-evaluation

i've made it to january 17 in my attempt to blog each day this month. while sometimes the words flowed easily, other days, i found myself at the end of a busy day, scrambling to write something just so i wouldn't miss a day. those days, it was no longer something fun, but a chore. i realized i don't enjoy blogging simply for the sake of blogging and for reaching a goal.

but the main reason i've decided to stop blogging every day is that my time is more precious than i realize, i have much less of it than i would like, and ultimately, i would prefer to spend it striving to be a better wife, better sister, better auntie, better friend, better employee and especially, a better servant. for me personally, truly succeeding at any of these requires real time investment, the kind of time that can only be spent away from a computer screen.

you're sweet, and i'm sure i'll keep blogging, just not every day and certainly not when i feel it takes away from more important things in my life. :)

i've never Skyped, but i've seen it done on the Oprah show...;) i'd love to try it, and especially to see Aidan's reaction to seeing Zoe-girl. how do i get started?

Do you have a video cam? (there might be one built into your laptop) You just got to skype.com and download the program, create a user name and password and then we can video chat! We can look eachother up and add eachother as a contact and then as long as we are both online it will work. Its SO easy, free and great fun because we can all see eachother.
