Ok, summer break is over, and now with school back in session it’s time to get back to blogging. Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on.
It’s been a while since I’ve sat down and blogged, but that’s because I simply had a great summer and I enjoyed it to the fullest. I had my husband and my two sons at home with me for 8 full weeks so we maximized our family time.
Not only did we make family time a priority, I also took this time to focus on my training. I did Iron Girl Canada back in early August (I know, I havent’ even had a chance to blog about it). I took my training serious during the month of July. Every day I worked on either biking, swimming or running.
With a little baby at home, training for a triathlon is quite the feat! I wouldn’t have been as susscessful if I didn’t have such a supportive/understanding husband at home. As for how I did at Iron Girl, I’ll leave that for another post.
Hobby No. 2: Painting
Besides training/running, another one of my hobbies is painting. I took some time this summer to rekindle my passion for it. It’s really hard to find time to be yourself when you are mom with small kids, so this summer, I decided to put the blog on hold and purse another passion. I won’t pretend to be a mom who can do it all, but I also think it’s important, even though I’m mom, to keep pursing my interest.
Note: I either have happy kids and a messy house, or a clean house and kids who are looking for my attention.
Back to Blogging
But now that my oldest son is back to school, and I’m still at home with my baby for another 6 months,. I’m going to make time to get back to blogging. I might not be posting as often, but I’ll aim for 1 new post a month to start (pending upon dream goal of happy kids & clean house).
Come back soon. I’ll be posting my Iron Girl recap shortly and a tasty appetizer that uses some of those yummy garden tomatoes.
