Where Am I?

I haven't blogged much in a while because I have been busy being a mom. My days are packed with the challenges of caring for a curious and energetic toddler. And when I do have some free time, I often spend it trying to catch up on things around the house. All is going well. However, lately I have been realizing that I have forgotten about myself. I am so busy giving all I have to give to my family that there isn't much "me" left anymore. And I am starting to feel the effects of neglecting myself -- exhaustion and frustration. So, I am going to make an effort to focus on me just a little bit each day. I really need some time to unwind and clear my head. One way I will do this is by blogging. This blog is a great way to gather my thoughts, share my experiences with others and get feedback. Please feel free to send me your opinions, comments and questions.

For those of you who have never been to my blog before, you can catch up on my story by visiting these blog entries:

thank you so much for writing this and giving us an opportunity to see what goes into adopting. It used to seem like it was an easy alternative to stretch marks. You really brought all of the feelings out and made me see that life is not always what you plan, even if it's where your heart is concerned. Enjoy your little girl, they grow up so quickly.
