The People Have Spoken

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.

I'm baaaaaaack.....


  1. Glad to hear what you've been up to. I always wonder what happens when people disappear suddenly. Sounds like you've got a lot going on.

  2. It's so nice to see you again! Work sucks, don't it!?

  3. Yay! :) I had been wondering about you. I relate with the schedule. I have to be to work by 7:30 (usually I get there 7:40). I work at a school so thank goodness I get home about 4:00 or so. A lot of the time, that is when I can get writing in, especially if my husband is picking up the maniac from daycare. If not, it's a crapshoot. And, I refuse to lose actual sleep over anything else! I have 3 work days a week when I write during my lunch. The other 2 days, I give myself a break and eat and chat with others. I write on Sundays during naptime. These writing times often don't make it to blog land and only get added to my increasingly convoluted novel. Don't ever feel like you have to do long posts. People in blogworld probably mostly prefer short"er" ones. Take care, girl. Do what feels right.
