Blogging

Working on the blogging habit

This photo has no relevance to this post except that it makes me so. damn. happy.

I’m working on doing small things that make me happy.  There are a lot of things about this FS life that I’m not sold on (remember that my husband and I were literally living the dream in Benin previous to our lives working for The Man), and having a baby and a toddler in a tiny Oakwood apartment during language training isn’t always conducive to bliss.

One of the things that I love is writing, and more specifically, blogging.  I’m want to spend less time on Facebook and more time writing every day.  Language class lets out at 4:30 every day, and I don’t have to pick my kids up at daycare until 5:20 to catch the 5:40 shuttle every day.  Forty minutes a day five days a week should be more than enough time for me to crank out a few blog posts per week.  Plus, with the snazzy new look and reorganization, I’m a lot more excited about blogging to begin with.

So far, I like it.  The cafeteria’s quiet.  No kids are screaming my name.  Folks tend to pass by when they see that I’m busily typing at my computer.  And I can use the peace and quiet in the morning before I wake up the kids to play with paper instead of staring at my screen.
