When I left my “real” job this past summer, I immediately had all these exciting plans for what I was going to do with all the extra time I just knew I was going to have. Besides spending more time on our family farm I was definitely going to be cooking gourmet meals and baking mouth watering desserts that would break Pinterest. I would be antiquing and lunching with friends and volunteering and after I was done doing that I was going to be sewing and crafting and arting whilst taking gorgeous photographs and blogging about it all 3 days a week! And it was all going to be amazing immediately. My sh#@ was gonna go viral. I was gonna have a thousand followers in just a few short weeks. The reality? I made 3 blog posts, then….crickets. WTF was I thinking?
My problem is that I have always bitten off more than I can chew and boy did I get a whole mouthful this time. I get super psyched to do something, jump in head first, then realize how much I didn’t plan for it. I don’t like to do things half ass, either, but I am seriously challenged when it comes to time management. I hate that about myself and it’s something I am working really hard to fix, because I HAVE to if I ever want to achieve the goals I have set for myself. My goal with this blog is to share with as many people as I can, the realsies of life on this super cool farm that I get to live on with my crazy husband and daughter (and not to mention the 25 chickens, 2 ducks, 2 dogs, 2 cats and a hedgehog).
Anyhooooo. So here I am four months after my last blog post and I am declaring publicly (to all six of you who may read this) that this is the official re-launch of the TMFG blog. I think I’ve got my shizzle together. I’ve got a plan, a written plan. And a written schedule. It’s full and strict and it’s posted somewhere I have to look at it every day. The bulk of it is the boring real life stuff I failed to take into account before. I won’t be blogging 3 days a week, just so you know. Let’s just go ahead and say once a week for now. I’m comfortable with that. I’ve got it scheduled for Thursdays so hopefully you’ve got a few minutes each week to check out what’s up on the farm front. And if you like, I would love for you to share. I’m hoping to hit 100 followers this year. Cheers!
P.S. Meet Susie, the latest addition to our farm family. She takes up a lot of my time.
