Restructuring and Guest Blogging Opportunity

A few major life changing events have been on the surface of our reality here in this household. Obviously you all know that we are trying for baby number two (nope, still no news on that front), but we've also been long...long...long...awaiting news of a possible move for Michael's job. It's looking like that may not happen (or at least not in the very near future) and honestly we aren't sure where things are standing with his position as the company is currently undergoing a major restructuring process.

If you have been reading lately I think you would agree that I've been in a sort of funk. This sort of what you might call limbo has contributed to that fact and I think that's pretty understandable. I've come to the conclusion that this state of limbo might not be going anywhere any time soon so I've been busy trying to figure out just how to deal with it.

There has been a lot of buzz in the blog world about social media and the time we allot to it and I have to admit I've been feeling the same. You may have noticed that I haven't been posting quite as regularly (Did you miss me?) and although I know I have no intention of making this lack of irregular posting a habit, I do know that it's been helpful as I sort through this process of restructuring my days so that I can get back to truly enjoying life as I envision it. 

Priorities are something we all have to reanalyze from time to time and I've been thinking a lot about mine. I feel like a lot of my "stress" comes from not organizing my day correctly so I've currently been focusing on getting back to basics. I have started getting up earlier in the mornings so I can try and get some things done before E wakes up although I swear he has spidey senses as he somehow manages to wake up as soon as my feet hit the ground. I've also dusted off my Home Organization Notebook and have been getting back into the swing of all that. I've made sure to get dressed in the mornings and make up my bed (isn't it amazing how making your bed can make the day so much better?). I've also found it's important to my sanity to get out of the house a few days of the week prior to Ethan's nap time.

I've put blogging on the back burner lately to help me get back to a positive place and so far it's been working great. I can truly say that I've been happier as of late and I like where things are headed. Blogging is important to me though. It's a sort of therapy to me. It's a place I connect with other moms as well as a creative outlet and how I document this truly magical time in my life. I haven't found my groove just yet though as far as where it should fit into my day.

I'm thinking of taking a blogging "Spring Break". I'd love to have some more time to regroup and gather my thoughts. Instead of just leaving this blog to lay dormant though, for the first time ever, I'd love to open up my blog to some guest bloggers. If you would be interested in guest blogging please shoot me an email (mythoughtsuninterrupted at gmail dot com). 

One last little note....I've got one other little favor to ask of you all! If you don't mind could you please head over here to vote for my blog? I'm currently in the running for The Best Family Blog award held by Apartment Therapy. How exciting is that? Just scroll down to the bottom of the list to sign in and place your vote. Thanks in advance, I'm truly honored that you would take the time to do it!


  1. I think a blog spring break is a great idea! I was just thinking it might be nice to take a break. Hope you have a great day!

  2. I hope this little break finds your heart full of peace, comfort, and clarity!

    I love Apt. Therapy and will definitely go vote for you. CONGRATS!

  3. oh girl, take all the time you need. blogging is ALWAYS ok to put on the back burner. I had a HUGE bloggy break while I was pregnant, and it wasnt until i figured out "how" to fit in my life that I finally found a way to make it work. And a lot of it had to do with not putting so much pressure on myself, and more so setting the rule to not blog until night time.

    of course I will miss you, but your family and your life ALWAYS comes first. :)


  4. Just found your blog, love it! I think a blog spring break is a great idea :)

    My family and I just moved to M'boro would love any tips on the good parks :)

  5. I am so glad to hear you are starting to get back into your normal groove. I have of course missed you! I hate to hear that Michael's company is in such a place of limbo, that certainly doesn't help you feel any more comfort. Go hug that family and we'll be here waiting. Oh, and I'd love to guest post...I'll email you as well.

    Happy Wednesday sweet friend!

  6. Hi Laura,
    I went over to vote for you and I think I am a total dunce right now as I cannot figure out how to actually "vote". Tell me how! I ask for people to vote so I am happy to vote for you.

    Also, I am looking to grow my blog as within the week I will be launching my new website. I would love to guest post. After you poke around my blog a bit, let me know what subject sparks your interest and you think your readers would enjoy. I can write a new one, or repost an old one. Thanks for considering!

  7. Oh Laura, I totally feel you. Funks are normal, part of the ebb and flow of life. Our pastor always says "if you didn't have the lows, you wouldn't appreciate the highs" and I do think it's true. Do whatever you need to do - take a break, take a night away with the hubs, go on a date night, read a "fun" book, take more baths... I am a big fan of getting back to the essence of the little pleasures in life, whatever those are for you. A brownie, Starbucks ... literally the small things that make you happy. I find that when I "allow" myself those and feel grateful, it flows up into other areas of my life. Either way, praying for you and hoping a break is just what you need!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
