OK, so I wrote the following post 3 weeks ago, but I'm putting it up, because everything still applies.
So much has happened, I don't know where to begin. So, I guess I'll just start.
Right now I'm working 3 days a week and I'm home with my boy (who just turned 1!) the other days. I feel that I'm doing pretty well with the whole mom thing, doing "OK" at my job, and everything else is shit. Housework, keeping up with friends, creative stuff - those things are hardly happening right now. They matter to me, but I'm not fitting them in. I mean, you saw what happened to my blog. And I REALLY like blogging and connecting with all of you guys. I just haven't been able to get it together.
Emito (that picture over there is over 3 mos. old, because I haven't downloaded anything from my camera in ages) is waking up now, so I'm going to have to wrap. Sorry to be such a complainer, especially on my returning post. Truly, I'm not unhappy. I am, in fact, happier than I've ever been. A bit frazzled and exhausted but very very very happy. Just trying to figure out the whole balance thing - an age old dilemma, I know.
More soon. I've had posts popping up in my head lately, so I think my blogging voice is back...
Ok, back in the present moment. It's Halloween so here's another pic. A current one this time! I bought the costume and the candy at 5:15 this evening. Typical me. But I managed to pull it off, and I think Em had a lot of fun. He even kept the hood on for several minutes - a minor miracle since he never never wears anything on his head.
Alright, now I'm off to chop chop chop - preparation for tomorrow's day care lunch.
Other quick bits before I go:
I'm still nursing. Mostly because I haven't come up with a plan for how I'm going to wean. It doesn't seem as though Emito will want to stop any time soon. I'm kind of hoping we'll be done by 18 months.
We're trying again. I was hoping to be pregnant by my 40th birthday, but it's not looking good. More on that soon.
Oh, and I still owe you an ending to that birth story - if there's anyone out there who's still interested!
