My Blogging Dilemma

This morning I was going through some of my old tweets, and recounting past memories.  Then, I was trying to remember what I did for New Year's Eve 2012.  I could not for the life of me remember what I did!  Then Manda tweeted at me asking if I had blogged about it.  (No, I hadn't.)  And then, after jogging my brain for a few minutes, I remembered. (I went to Billy Bob's with Paula and we saw Chris Young perform, if you're curious.)
From the NYE in question.

So this made me think about why I don't blog more often.

My problem is that I view blogging like journaling.  If I'm going to take the time to sit and write out an occurrence or event, I want to remember all the details, and frankly that's not for everyone to read.  I want to respect other people, my husband, my family, my friends, and myself.  Especially now, with the added title of "Priest's Wife," I want to be mindful of privacy.

Best day ever.

I want to share my frustrations, the highs and the lows, the good, the bad... all of it!  But I can't. (Well technically I could, but I won't.)

Also, I'm too scatter-brained to stay on one topic.  I could possibly designate a day for each topic, but I'm definitely not type-A and therefore not motivated to do anything like that.  (Which frustrates me because I admire so many other bloggers out there who can blog all week about DIY and home happenings and I try to compare myself to them... which is unhealthy.)  I also don't always feel like taking pictures of what I want to talk about or organizing them.  Therefore, this is my blog and I'll do what I want.  :)

I want to do a post of before/afters of our apartment...
once we get to the "after" stage!

Things I want to blog about:

-Wife Life
-My cat, Bella
-My job  
-Future dreams

I also don't want to do this for people to read, because if I have that mindset I'll get a little hurt when people don't read it, but for those of you that do read... thank you!
