Taking a Step Back

My name is Marva and I am addicted to blogging. Don't laugh......I am serious. My life is so chaotic right now. Yet, I still "need" to blog. I feel compelled to comment on every single post of my blogging buddies (most of the time). I cannot keep up at this pace. AND I won't!

My boys have reached an all time high of terror and destruction. Yes, I am serious. One of them actually busted his bedroom door into 2 pieces and left it hanging by the hinges in the middle of the night. The other son seems to beat his forehead into the wall when he doesn't get the attention he "thinks" he needs. This is 24/7 seems.

My house is a wreck (or at least in my eyes) and everything seems out of sorts.

My husband and I both need to reconnect. We both are feeling neglected by the other. That is one reason for our little trip coming up this weekend. We need a break.......together......without kids and distractions. Last night while searching for a hotel room online....I was actually looking for one with free internet use.......so I could blog while there. I have lost my stinkin' mind.

I prayed over this and this is where God has brought me. I need space and time. I am going on a blogging break. I will see you next Monday the 19th. I may read but am resisting the urge to comment.

I had actually thought about not even leaving this post, but if I wouldn't eant you to do that and be worried and wonder where in the world you are. I love you all. I have quite a week planned and this weekend is going to be just wonderful! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day and will continue to have a wonderful week!

I am looking forward to the freetime but will miss you! Many blessings sweet friends!

Have a wonderful break, Marva! Isn't it amazing how addictive the always available internet connection can be? I just picked up the "how did I get so busy" book Amy at momadvice has been blogging about and I'm hoping to get some good suggestions for reducing the chaos in my life. One thing I try to do myself is limit my internet use to a specific time after my daughter has gone to bed. I was amazed by how much I'm missing talking to you and others on the momadvice forum, so I can sympathize with your situation. I am sending prayers and *hugs* that you find that balance you're looking for in your life.

Blessings,
Stephanie

Good for you Marva. I have long wondered how mothers can find the time to belong to the forums. My blog is all I can do.

And you dear girl, -looking for a motel with free internet connection. Im sure you're not the only one that has done that but you're one of the few with the courage to admit it.

I always take the chance on vacations to stay unplugged. You might consider that when you return to blogging. Just count vacations as pure family time and dont even take the laptop along.

Blessings to you!

Have fun! I remember the terrible two's, my kids were actually pretty good but they did practically destroy everything they touched.See you on Monday!

Good for you Marva. Although I don't spend a huge amount of time on blogging (I visit about 8 blogs regularly) I have been considering going to 3 posts a week. There are just so many other things in life to keep up with. Mrs.Darling told me many bloggers slow down in the summer months anyway, so I'm kindof waiting to adjust til then.

Your boys sound like typical 2-year-old boys to me...except you have 2 at the same time;) I sometimes wondered what sort of creature I had brought into the world when my eldest was that age, LOL. He liked to bang his head into everything! He is so easy- going now you would never quess that, but it's true.

Enjoy your trip with hubby, and your break from blogging. Take care~

Have a restful weekend and make that time with hubby special! You did make me laugh about the boys though, as my son turns 2 this week. The things to expect! heather

Hey, Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone with the boys... We try to be the best parents that we can be and we try to raise children to turn into adults (normal adults)... but it takes the head banging tantrums and the destroyed doors for this to happen... My twins were banned from all markers, crayons, and pens, because they marked on everything... P is always into everything... she loves making messes.. I hope that she turns this destruction into something constructive as she gets older. N is more layed back and is all boy... when he gets mad, he really explodes.... they both turned 4... All moms can relate to what you are going through, but I still say that only mother's of multiples can really relate to the stress of two... No offense to singlar birth mothers! I just hope that you truly enjoy your time with hubby, enjoy no blogs, and no posting... get some long needed time away from the boys and please don't feel guilty about the time away... enjoy it!!!
