Preparing to take another flying leap. (That's how we do things around here.)

Some of you may have noticed that it's been pretty sparse here lately in terms of content. We all love our critter pictures, for sure, but I realize I haven't posted much actual writing lately, not enough thought provoking material or even zingingly funny stuff.

Although I can usually give you some of this.

He never lets me down.

Anyways, like I was saying.

It's always harder to keep up the good work during summer, when the kids are free of their educational shackles, and our days seem to fill up with... something... I'm not sure exactly what it is that keeps us so darn busy....

Well actually, this summer I do know what's been keeping us busy.

We've been planning some huge changes.

Specifically one big change.

Requiring lots of little changes.

It's something we haven't had to do in twelve years.

I have a lot of mixed feelings about it. Like, some days, I am not sure exactly how I feel about the whole thing.

It's something we want to do and have always wanted and will be really quite awesome but also several degrees of heartbreaking, so yeah. It's been a bit of a brain strain.

But I believe despite some of the less-than-perfect aspects of this big change, it is for the best. It's something we've been working towards for a long time, and even though it's not going the way we expected it to, it'll be alright in the long run.

Before too long I'll be getting very excited about the project.

It's just that I'm kind of afraid to type it in case something goes nuts and nothing happens, or happens differently. Because, people, if there's one thing I can count on in my life, it's that things regularly get strange.

So please bear with me, okay? Things will improve here in Hick Chic world. For now I'll squeeze in a few posts between whatever it is that's keeping me so darn busy; stay tuned long enough and I'll crank out the good stuff again.

It will be amazing after the scary part..Trust me Heidi, I know about these things!
Let me know when you wanna do our girls day out.

Kimber said...

Hmmmm...does it have anything to do with your advice-y post from a few weeks ago????

It's always a struggle through the bad to get to the good. You'll make it through this in between and be so much happier on the other side.

And your blog is never slacking or lacking- so there!

Brit said...

Hang in there Heidi- things will calm down and be better for everyone.

And your blog never disappoints.

Heidi the Hick said...

Hey Bid, aren't most good things and events in life both scary and amazing? Sometimes we have to take the leap. I know you know.

Not sure when we'll do our girl's day, but I will for sure get back to you on that!!

Kimber! hee hee, no, but looking back I can kind of see why you'd guess that!!!! We closed the baby shop, but every now and then I still feel maternal so I get a puppy or kitten instead. That dog of mine is like a baby that'll never grow up so that should do for awhile. So, no, the big leap is not baby-related!

Kerri & Brit- Well I am relieved that the blog isn't disappointing you, although I do wish I could make more time to read and comment on other people's blogs. I just have to do what I gotta do.

So I'm hanging in there!
