I’m sure you thought this blog had seen its end. A single post in one year, seriously? Lots of people would have pulled the plug by now, but not me. I hung on to the hope that one day I’d have time to write, amid working, taking care of my now-11-month-old (yes, my last post announced that we were expecting), and moving. I’ve wasted numerous hours on Pinterest and Facebook, gawking at people’s DIY skills and ‘catching up’ with people I hadn’t seen in a long time, and now I’m redirecting my free time to this blog. Writing seems like a better use of my free time, even if my number of readers can be counted in two hands.
So what have we been up to in the last year? The headliner is the baby of course. He went from being totally content being wrapped like a burrito, to never wanting to be on his back, to crawling, to speed-crawling, to standing, to cruising on anything and everything he thinks will hold his weight (really everything for that matter, even things that topple over him). We’re holding our breath for his first independent, unassisted stand. Any time he attempts it, we literally hold our breath. What can I say, we’re suckers for this little guy.
In other news… we’re moving. Farewell Texas. Hello Ohio. My husband’s job is moving our family, 2 Newfoundlands and all, to the land of the Buckeyes. I’m excited, sad, happy, grateful, tentative (and that’s just to name a few of my emotions) all at the same time. I think of it as a new chapter, a new adventure. Best of all, I have a new job. My new boss is young in years, but believes strongly in personal development and growth, rewarding for good performance, and taking afternoon naps. Yes, you read that right. I’ll be reporting to full-time Mommy duty to my son in just a few short weeks.
So lots of things are changing and hopefully more frequent posts are coming. So stay tuned!
