This and that and a blogoversary

Linda (my MIL) and I was sitting here this morning talking about a couple of blogs I was reading.  She asked me why I didn't blog that much anymore and I told her I really wasn't sure.  I still read some of them occasionally but nothing like I once did.
She told me that in her opinion that when I first started blogging it was inspirational, sorta like a morning devotion, then I got into doing giveaways and got away from the devotion part of it.  I told her I want it to be more devotional type, in my heart that's what I want but when I sit down to type it's just not there.
It just doesn't seem like the time is there anymore to really sit down and blog and comment like I would like.  Maybe it's a dry spell.  I'm not really sure but I do want to blog more like I use to.
On a positive note, when Linda was released from the hospital at the end of December.  We had seven Doctor appointments in January.  As of last week we're down to two Doctors, her primary care physician, and the neurologist.  All the others has released her she is doing so well.
We don't go back to her PCP until the end of May and the Neurologist isn't until July.  The last couple of weeks her vision has been at it's worse again.  I told her the other day well sometimes things have to get worse before they get better.
February 9th marked two years of blogging for me.  So since seeing this I thought it would be something simple.  Please join in telling me at least one new thing about yourself in your comment that we may not know about each other.

  1. Happy two yr blogoversery Thena. Sometimes we do get writers block...I kind of have that now...thats why I just do the memes and post pictures. I love to take photos so this suites me for now. You have a very busy full life right now...sometimes blogging takes a backseat.

  2. Happy blogoversary to you! Sometimes it's hard to find the time to blog or read blogs like you would like. I just do what I can and figure when God inspires me I will write. Something you might not already know about me is that I work full-time as the pastoral administrator at my church. Have a beautiful day.
