Trying This Again
Hello everyone, long time no see. I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long, but you know, twins. I had every intention of blogging more often again. I really did hope that I could pull out my iPad while the boys were sleeping and type on my tiny keyboard and get something out at least once a week. Silly me. The big problem is keeping track of the keyboard and taking the time to set the whole thing up. If I have a sleeping boy on me there’s no way I’m going to be able to juggle the keyboard and the iPad, since they’re not attached. I did start a couple posts that went nowhere as I gave up trying to deal with the awkward setup, and also the boys who sleep unpredictably and wake without warning. They also don’t always sleep at the same time. Right now they are both napping in their cribs, but that is so rarely the case.
So I’ve been struggling to get stuff written and have definitely fallen out of practice as my past few writing attempts have proven. I didn’t want to give up, but I figured the whole blog was going to have to be put on hold until I could get a Chromebook. My poor laptop is just about seven years old now and turning it off and on takes forever. It’s also tethered by it’s power cord, so I can only use it while plugged in, not convenient for keeping an eye on little boys. Since I only really use my laptop for the internet, I figured a Chromebook would be sufficient for my need and much more convenient in size and price.
As providence would have it, my sister-in-law had a Chromebook which she hadn’t used in about a year since getting a new computer for school. Since she wasn’t using it, she very generously gave it to me. Thanks again, Molly, you’re the best. So here I am, typing on a little keyboard that takes some getting used to after my bigger laptop while keeping an ear on the monitor for when my boys decide that nap time is over. It’s been a good half hour, so I’m expecting fusses any minute now.
We’re going to try this again and see how it goes. It’s a little awkward, since I have help a lot of days during the week and I feel weird blogging while people are here, but I should have at least one day when I can get something out, provided the boys cooperate. I’m hopeful, now that I have a convenient writing machine at my disposal.
And there’s a boy. It was great talking to you all again, I hope to talk to you again real soon!
