And then she blogged…

About nothing in particular. But better something about nothing than nothing at all. Or something like that… Clearly I am terrible at blogging now. I blame it on my lack of sleep and extremely energetic/time consuming 9 month old. So please direct any complaints to this guy — Speaking of that guy, he is almost … Continue reading

Starting Fresh (again)

I lied. I wasn’t ready to blog. I was delusional from sleep deprivation. So 5 months later here we are. Still incredibly sleep deprived, but I can function now. And now that I’m starting to come into my own in this mommyhood world I am ready to make some changes. I am putting my hopes/goals … Continue reading
