“It’s better to offer no excuse than a bad one” is a quote attributed to George Washington. I will take his advice.
This has been a year of trial and transition for our family. This is not an excuse, but the truth. Learning how to balance my going back to work, my husband’s work and commitments, the activities of three teenage boys, and the new adventure into club/tournament baseball has been challenging. I was not prepared for the amount of time and brain power all of this would require. It was trial by fire.
I figured summer would be a good time to sort things out and pick back up with my writing. The season ended in July. The older two attended National Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, a trip that took place over two weeks. My husband, baseball boy, and I traveled to the east coast for Baseball Trip 2017. It has stayed fast and furious.
I’ve just now taken the time to breathe and start sorting out what comes next, not only for my writing but for our life as a family. I will not offer excuses as to why there is a huge gap in posts. I will offer this instead: I plan on re-launching this blog with a plan and a purpose. The posts will be consistent. I can’t promise that each and everyone will focus entirely on baseball, but baseball and being a baseball mom will remain the center of this space.
Keep watching and keep reading. I can’t wait to get going again and take you on this crazy ride with me.
