Tidbits - Baby Steps in High Heels

Tidbits

The last few weeks have been …. Well, hectic. To say the least.

And, if you’re like me, once enough time has passed, it becomes difficult to figure out just where to pick up blogging again. Right?

I could try to recap. But that runs the risk of boring y’all to tears.

I could pick up right where I am. Today. But that leaves out a lot of information.

So if you don’t mind a bit of boring, here are a few tidbits so we can all get caught up to speed …

-Baby is a walking, talking, no-no-finding, perpetual motion machine (a PMM, as dubbed by her grandparents). I still refuse to start calling her Toddler.

-I’m currently existing is a state of disbelief. In a few short weeks, Baby will be 15-months-old. WTH? Or, as my colleagues from north of the Mason Dixon line might say (completely giving me a hard time) … “WTHY” (for what the hell, y’all?). Seriously, she just turned ONE. TWELVE MONTHS. How have 3 months gone by? Already?

-Work is BUSY. Crazy, hectic, traveling all over the place (at least when the weather allows) … busy. And the prime reason for my blogging absence.

-Motherhood is STILL misspelled in my header. Don’t have a clue how to fix it and can’t get in touch with the designer (mostly my fault for lack of time). It’s kind of embarrassing. But I also kind of don’t care. Isn’t that a prime example of how chaotic motherhood can be?

-Reviews and Giveaways to come ... If CSN Stores haven’t thrown their hands up in the air, completely frustrated with my procrastination (since October!). Also, a little something from Overstock!

-Vacation Recap also to come: my insights on leaving Baby behind and why it’s both important/necessary and gut wrenchingly difficult. Pictures too!

-Publishing my Macaroni Kid newsletter is awesome! If you’re at all interested in publishing for you area, let me know. I’d love to talk to you about it more!

Hope all my blogging buddies are doing well. I have been reading, just not commenting quite as much.

For now, and probably for the next 6-8 weeks, I’m just trying to keep my head above water. Which, back here in reality, is completely different from ‘keeping my head above water’ in Jamaica. Where, you know, the sole purpose for that was to enjoy a fruity umbrella drink.

  1. Good luck with keeping your head above water! It can be tough, but it's all about survival. And you can do it.

    And I never even noticed that motherhood was misspelled on your title thing! And I usually notice that sort of thing. Funny!

  2. Such a balancing act isn't it?! But I think you are doing a fantastic job.

    And how pathetic is it that I didn't even notice the misspelling until you pointed it out? ;-)

  6. If you hadn't pointed out motherhood was misspelled I'd never have noticed it...I was too busy thinking about how much I also red wine...
    And yes...the kids grow too fast, that's probably why I had four in seven years...
    following you from the hop...loving your blog! Hope you come by my blog and visit...
