I'm Proclaiming Things Again

LIFE.

I swear. I keep reprioritzing blogging -- I AM GOING TO BLOG MORE OFTEN! -- and then it's three weeks later and I'm sitting here in mis-matched, ill-fitting clothes with pureed sweet potatoes crusted under my fingernails wondering whether I forgot to put on a bra on today or if it was a conscious-albeit-pre-coffee-decision that I just don't remember making.

Working from home "part-time" takes EVERY SECOND YOU HAVE if you have a child under foot. That's just an FYI for any of you who think that working from home while you have a baby is "luxurious." Also, please see the above paragraph, wherein I can't remember how I came to spend the day braless.

So maybe the key is, once again, to just write whatever I can, whenever I can, and not feel bad/guilty/stressed/lame for posting short posts.

Let me just tell you that, among other things, I spent this past weekend consuming my weight in beer and carbs and I haven't run since Friday and I don't feel even the slightest bit of remorse. I'm just trying to figure out how I'm going to lose another ten pounds by BlogHer, which is a giant, mystical goal that MUST BE ACHIEVED. Granted, I may have to rely on magic. But I'm okay with that.

  1. Your blog is one of the blogs that I check every day because I love reading it, but I'm sure your readers don't get angry when you don't post every day. So neither should you! I think if you approach it in the "write whatever I can, whenever I can", as you said, that you will probably do it more often! You'll do it because you want to and let's face it, guilt is a useless emotion. This is one of my favourite pictures for guilt right now: http://tinyurl.com/guiltisuseless
    So keep doing what you're doing because it's great :)

  3. P.S. Working part time from home with two preschoolers isn't much better. Instead of cries for your attention you get fighting and near death experiences. On the days I do go into the office are heaven, I leave they are well entertained and I can get my work done in half the time. I feel you, girl. Don't let anyone tell you working from home is better. Doing everything half as well as you can is never better. But we all survive.
