On Recognizing Seasons (No, Not that Kind)

I’ve been trying to decide between some different options for a new 30 Day Challenge, and I was hoping to have something decided and announced this week. But I have had to balance the reality that twins are coming, and not all of my ideas would necessarily fit with that reality.

I  was close to settling on an option. Then Melanie went into labor late Saturday night. On the way to the hospital, I realized that none of my ideas were worth starting at this critical time. I know, you’re thinking, “And it took you how long to figure that out?”

If I tried to force my new routine on my situation, I would most likely just fail and cause myself, and my family, an unnecessary amount of stress. Instead, I need to recognize that this is a season for taking care of new babies and Theo and Melanie.

I might get some blog posts up, and I might not. Either way will be fine. I don’t need to complicate everything with a new 30 Day Challenge. My ideas will be there when the time is right. And I trust that you will be too.

Or, as Melanie just suggested, I could do the stand 30 Days of Taking Care of Twins Challenge. Although, you might not be able to play along at home.

    Just as an update, the twins came in a dramatic but stellar fashion. They are currently having some NICU time, mostly because of their being early. Everyone is doing well, and the challenge has begun.
