The Latest Update

Once again I’ve been gone for a while. I was very excited about achieving all those goals I set back in August. I planned on going full force into freelancing again, blogging regularly, networking, and even working on my website. Right away I managed to land a couple writing jobs – both from previous connections. As often happens in life though, everything did not go exactly as planned. Yes, I did get those wonderful jobs for which I am very thankful, but I also got something I wasn’t exactly bargaining for –I got pregnant too!

Tomorrow I will be 16 weeks pregnant and unfortunately it hasn’t been my best pregnancy ever. I have been low on energy and sick a good portion of the time. Finally, the last week or so I have been feeling better and I am so thankful for that. Other than that, I have been busy trying to figure out how to balance parenting three girls, homemaking, and writing at the same time.

So I didn’t exactly accomplish all those goals a couple months ago, but the best part about goals is that just because you don’t reach them right away doesn’t mean all is lost. I am hoping to spend this next trimester accomplishing all those goals I originally set out to do. Hopefully, it will be a very productive time for me and more importantly for those I am working with and for.

For now I am happy to be able to contribute a quick post to my blog, and hope to be able to do so more regularly. I hope everyone is having a blessed holiday season, and I will try to be back soon!

Thanks for the update, Lisa. Right now your most important goals and responsibilities are family. You can accomplish the rest of your goals over time. It can be discouraging when we don't achieve our goals when we would like, but worthwile goals don't expire. They'll still be worth doing later on. Best wishes.

Hi Lillie! How are you? So nice to hear from you! How do you keep up with are simply amazing!

I feel exactly the same as you family is the most important thing in my life. After all, those little ones don't stay little for long, and I don't want to miss a thing! I can hardly believe I have a 14-year-old and often wonder where the time has gone. It won't be long and the others will be there too!

I hope everything is wonderful in your life and I pray God's Blessings for you and your family during the Christmas season and always!

Take care!

Lisa, congratulations on your pregnancy. You certainly are busy with your family, therefore it is understandable that your time is limited on this blog and with your clients.

I do stop in from time to time; I will make a point of doing so regularly in 2010.
