So...things got a little crazy...and of course I fell off the proverbial wagon. My weekly entries became non-existent as soon as life got busy again. Lots has happened. Baby #2 due in the next few weeks and things are good on the family front. Hectic but good.
Helping a friend start a cookies and cakes business. Had a pretty good start but hit a bit of a road bump over the past couple of months with weather and illness and of course, the pregnancy. Little by little, small orders are helping.
Finished my first short story. Start to end. Now to do story number two and I have 5 months to do it. Not a lot of time, but will have to get it done.
Work is....there. Will be off for a few months so focus will shift to being more 'mom centered'. And I suppose so will this blog, at least for the next few months.
Here's the quote: All I know I learned after I turned 30.
If that is the case then I've only really been learning for 5 years. Not a lot of training right? And yet I'm considered a full out adult with a husband, house, mortgage and children who I'm supposed to 'teach' to do the right thing. What? I still can't figure myself out sometimes. How on earth do I do this and do it well??
Let's be honest. No one wants to see an adult floundering. Not at work. Not even in a social setting. So we have to make like a duck. Look perfectly calm above water but paddle like hell underneath. Where's my glass of shiraz and plate of aged cheese? This won't be easy without my crutches. Maybe that's why I'm exhausted. Haven't had a drink in 8 months and won't have one for at least another 8.
