State of the Union, or Uh, the Blog

What’s going on with Kirstylee?

I don’t know how to start this so I’ll just get right into it. The past two weeks have been a bit crazy for me. I apologize for being MIA, but I needed some time for soul searching. Or, you know, freaking out as I figure my life out. But that’s basically the same thing, right?

Recently there have been some pretty big changes/events/whatever that have happened in my life. First off, I was just called to be the Primary President in my ward. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and for those of you who are not, I’ll quickly explain what a Primary President is.

Basically, I am in charge of all the children in our church ages 18 months to 11 years. It is all on a volunteer basis and it is very time and labor intensive. We believe callings (or jobs) like this are extended by the Lord (through revelation). I am happy to do whatever the Lord asks of me, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t overwhelmed.

Why I do what I do. Aren't they the cutest?

Honestly, ever since my amazing little Sport entered the world, I have felt so busy and never finish all the things I think I can get done. To add being a Primary President on top of everything seems like an impossible task. I’m sure everything will work out and I’m definitely not complaining, I just don’t know how I will be able to fit everything into my life.

Also, since Cassidy had her sweet baby boy (who is super adorable), she is also very busy and will be doing less with this blog. She’ll still be a part of the blog, but instead of doing half the work, she’ll be doing only about 15% of the work. Which means, I have even more work to do than I did before my Sport was born. Again, I’m not complaining. Cassidy is amazing and I am so happy for her to have her sweet baby even if it means she has to do less on this blog. I guess I’m just trying to justify being MIA for so long.

I have also been dealing with some emotional stuff that I’m not ready to share yet. In an effort to not be so cryptic, I will say it has to do with the deaths of close family members. The deaths were not recent, but some things have come up recently that have to be dealt with and it has been pretty hard for me. I promise I’ll share more someday when I’m not in the middle of it all.

So, the question is, where does all of this leave Moms Have Questions Too? I definitely don’t intend to stop blogging. I don’t even plan to slow down. Am I crazy? Yes! I always think I can do more than I can actually do. So, please be patient with me if I don’t get posts up as frequently or consistently as I usually do.

I really, really want to post more, but I just don’t think it’s realistic. In an effort to be slightly less crazy, I am just going to post a couple times a week. You won’t hate me if I sometimes do less than that, right? You won’t? Thanks! You guys are the best. ;)

Sorry again for being MIA for so long. But, be excited because when I get stressed out I organize things. I know I’m super weird, but at least I’m not breaking things or eating a thousand pounds of chocolate, right? Anyway, I re-organized our toys and all of my preschool stuff and I’ll show it to you soon. Thank you for your support during this crazy time of my life. I hope I can continue to help answer your questions! :)

I thought this post needed more pictures, so I thought I would show you some of my other hobbies: gel polish, nail art, and making glitter shoes. :)
