It's time for a confession.
I'm a mess.
Quite literally, I'm a mess.
Our house is a mess. My hair is a little flat and frizzy, and my blog is a construction zone.
To make up for it, I decided to throw in a pretty flower picture. (above)
I happen to believe that throwing pretty pictures into just about any blog post will redeem any other blogging faux pas one might have. And in case you haven't noticed, my blogging as of late has been sporadic at best. Right now, in fact, I should be writing a blog post to wrap up the final adventures of our summer, but I'm so much a mess that I just can't bring myself to do it.
So, tonight, I decided to confess what the sam heck is going on around here.
It all started about a month and a half ago, when I spent my last day as a daycare provider. I think I've mentioned before (vaguely) that we had some career changes on the horizon, and this would be that of which I spoketh. I left my career in corporate America... No wait... That's not me; that's Nicolas Cage in The Family Man. What I meant to say is, I ended my day job as a daycare provider to embark upon starting my own business as a web designer.
I very much enjoy designing websites. If you've been around here for more than a year and witnessed the metamorphosis of my blog, you may have surmised as much.
Anyhow, web design is the new frontier for this cowgirl, with a side of teaching piano lessons.
So, basically, ever since the end of July when I ended my illustrious daycare career, we've been in one whopping state of transition. We've transitioned Little Blue Eyes into being a kindergartner. We've transitioned the kids into different sleeping arrangements. I've begun to think about the transition of having a new baby arriving in about four months and spent several moments thumbing through baby clothes in preparation for the little one. (Yes! That's right... I'm still pregnant!) We've been rearranging things around the house, organizing, sorting, packing up things for Good Will, etc., etc... (And it should be noted, in my increasingly rotund state, all of these things take me longer than they normally would.) And, last but not least, I've been transitioning into my new career rolls.
Mmmmm. Rolls. I'm pretty sure I should've spelled that 'roles'. But now that I've made the typo I can't stop thinking about how good a cinnamon roll... No! No! A pecan caramel roll! Yes! Yes... a pecan caramel roll sounds soooo good right now.
Sorry, I digress. Just consider that a little glimpse into my psyche now that I'm gestating a wee one in my womb. I love food. I love to eat food. I love to even just think about food. It gives me joy in my soul.
And here I am digressing again...
It's no wonder I can barely gather my thoughts enough to write a coherent blog post.
All I want to say, really, is I'm sorry for the current mess around here. Well, I'm not really sorry for it. I'm actually thankful for it; excited for it; thankful for this new chapter in our lives. However, I am sorry that my blogging has been negligent. And now, in case you haven't noticed, I'm in a state of current blog-design overhaul, with a goal of getting this site all spiffed up, as well as my new web design business site, before I officially launch myself as a web designer.
So that's where I'm at. Thank you for being patient. Please continue to be patient. And I hope you are doing well. One of these days I plan to become not only an avid blog writer again, but also an avid blog reader, so I can catch up with y'all.
