Okay, not so much people as person. Kristy at Pampers and Pinot basically told me to get off my butt and blog again. She’s right. I miss writing terribly, but life has kind of run away from me since I returned to work.
So, this will be a brief catch up and then I’m going to get to work on the posts that have been brewing in my brain over the last few weeks. I think Mr. Awesome will be much happier when I’m regularly blogging again, as I won’t be bending his ear with my rants and rambles otherwise saved for my readers…lucky you.
I went back to work on October 18. I work at 7:30am, and due to my need to move fairly slowly in the morning and the fact that the little man is usually bright eyed and bushy tailed (read: whining and demanding a movie and Cheerios) by 6am, I actually have to get up at 5:30am to get everything done.
I usually get home by 5:15-ish, we get dinner ready, eat, then Mr. Awesome takes the little man and I take the little miss and we get them ready for bed. By the time they’re both tucked in and finally quiet, Mr. Awesome slinks off to his office while I settle in to try and catch up on some of my recorded shows. This is typically around 8:15pm and by 8:30pm I’m out cold on the sofa. Sometimes I don’t even make it that long, and start falling asleep while giving the little miss her pre-bed bottle of milk.
This has pretty much been my reality for the last eight weeks. Work is great and the kids are handling me being away pretty well, with the occasional “Mummy, you don’t have to go work today” from my little mama’s boy. I’m keeping on track with my eating and working out. The only thing really missing has been the blogging and I really DO miss it.
So. Here goes. I am going to try and blog once a week. I have to remind myself they don’t all have to be brilliant. They don’t have to meet some standard length. I feel better when I write, so as long as I write something that resonates for someone, I’m good. Even if that someone is just me.
