I'm doing my random, every few months, pop my head in thing. If anyone remembers me. lol
Many blessings! i'm feeling nostalgic today and wandered back to MDC after barely being here since last summer. My babies are getting big, my life is getting busy and I just wasn't wanting to spend time on mdc for a while.
But summer is coming, which makes me think of the great summer camps we did before, and my sister is about to go into labor, which makes me think of my own wee ones being born, and I'm just generally feeling wistful. <3
Hope everyone has been well. I'm also feeing just spiritually ...not dead or empty really, just like ritual has gone on the back (farrrr back) burner this year. Thankfully, there isn't the guilt associated with this like there was back in the christian days, but a longing for what I've had previously.
I started my own yarn/fiber dyeing business, my older two kids went back to school and this year just has been so different than previous years in my motherhood. Wow, I didn't really phrase it like that yet, but that's it. This year my identity has been totally different. Even though my youngest (Bodhi!) is still at home, and 4 years old, this is the first year I wasn't unschooly sahm, with only ourselves to set a schedule etc. we answer to the school system, I try to carve out business time at home, and I haven't had nearly the same amount of time with my friends as I use to, as they are all unschooly types and our social time was our KIDs social time.
Well, that may have been useless chatter, but it was cathartic. Blessings, everyone. I'm going to make it a point to check in here every day or two, just for personal connection. :-) bb
