Dude, Where’s My Blog?
Ok, I am a bit rusty so forgive me. But the good news is, I AM ALIVE! I know you were worried. What else would explain this long absence?
I’m going to give NaBloPoMo a try this year, and hopefully that will spark me to keep it up in the long term. I’ve been a bad, bad girl, and I apologize.
So, how do I sum up the last - what, year? or however long it’s been that I’ve been slacking?
Does the fact that I have a little monster who eats brain cells and loves early morning wake up calls give me any leeway?
Ok, I can’t blame this on the cute kid. I also can’t blame it on the fact that I got a big promotion at work and have high expectations now. So I will just shut my lips right now with excuses and start over new.
Hi, I’m Erin. I have a wonderful husband named Travis and a cute monster named Brady. I lived abroad a lifetime ago. Now I bust ass from dawn to dusk (and a few hours before and after) to keep things afloat. I’m learning about things like Motherhood Guilt and sippy cups.
We had a nice Halloween. Over the weekend we went to Boo at the Zoo where dumbass me decided to dress up like Elmo. I was the most POPULAR PERSON AT THE ZOO. (Except with my own son who was fascinated with the guy dressed like a bear to my right.)
(I had a nasty bout with the flu this weekend which I am using as my excuse for why I look like a 60-year old woman here. I am just all about the excuses today.)
Yesterday, apparently there was some sort of parade at Brady’s day care, which I did not know about, which I took Brady home right as it was starting, which makes me a really bad mom. He had his costume at school and everything, I just didn’t know the parade was going on until I got him. Since we live in a loft downtown with NO OTHER KIDS FOR MILES, we did not do trick or treating, and I struggled with some major guilt about depriving my child of the chance to parade through the halls of his school as a monster. Have I scarred him for life? Poor, poor child…
Again, my apologies for the dust on this blog, and for the complete randomness of my first post out of the gate. I will try to have some posts with actual TOPICS and not total random thoughts separated by paragraphs. (It is good to have goals.)
