Hello all you blog readers! It’s been quite some time since we met here in this space of mine. I’ve been busy. Oh so busy. And, as things began to calm down, they amped up again during the holidays. And now, I’m hoping they’ll be a bit better.
And so here I am, on this space I created to share and connect with others. Yet I’m not fully ready. I’m not sure where I am in some ways, in others I have two solid feet on the ground.
I’ve missed this space and at times I’ve really yearned to be sharing and connecting with all of you. I’ve even tried to write many times, especially in those last week’s of pregnancy with Turtle Boy. Oh how I wanted to share all the different and the difficulty of going to 40 weeks, with some prodromal labor thrown in the mix.
And since Turtle Boy’s birth, I’ve come to this space and written a few times, but never hit send. I’ll probably go back and post some of those musings in the days going forward. I also intended to have a New Year’s post published (you see how that’s gone, since it’s now the 6th).
As is often the case when it comes to intentions, planning is key, and I didn’t plan anything, hence the timing of my re-entry into blogging.
Our year started off alright, in that different day, same routine kind of way. Yes, the boys were up and yes we celebrated entering 2016 together. Really it was pretty much like most other nights here at home (minus the boys being up until midnight on purpose). And New Year’s Day was much the same as well. I’m not lamenting 2016 or our time together, just observing that it wasn’t very grand for us this go ’round.
Nonetheless, we’ve continued on with me trying to re-settle into some routine after the holidays, while also trying to get some unbroken sleep and quiet time (which isn’t happening with a nursing 2 month old), contemplating an experiment with coffee (which I’ve never had), forgetting important passwords, and the loss of my wallet while grocery shopping!
So, although the first few days of 2016 weren’t incredibly mentionable, the next few have been interesting. And thus, it’s a fine time to publish on the blog!
I welcome all you friends, hope to make some new ones this year, work at solidifying friendships, and get into some adventures both as a wife/mother and on a personal level. I hope you all will continue to join me as I “remember to live a life full of breath and be present in all of the moments”.
