Just to be upfront: I’ve been MIA. It’s been a while since my last post. The babies are almost 6 months old… and I never got farther than writing the blog title for their 5 month post.
To say life has been crazy is an understatement. I was working long hours for our big annual event. Which meant I was picking up the girls from my mom’s late each night. Which meant the babies were going to bed later and later. Which meant my personal time after work – to shower, have dinner, blog, read, watch tv, do laundry, or talk with Bryan – was becoming less and less.
Add in an out-of-town friend visiting, Bryan being out of town for a weekend, the babies’ first colds and the decision to buy a new house has meant that our lives are insane.
I’m happy to say that the work event was a huge success. We started a sort-of, kind-of sleep training program (more on that later). And – today, with the end of Daylight Savings Time, the babies went to bed at 7:15 pm. Both. Babies. That’s like 3 hours earlier than some other nights recently.
I’m using this as a chance to restart and renew my commitment to blogging. I want this blog to be a resource and a memoir. So, I’m excited to say that I’m going to participate in “NaBloPoMo” – otherwise known as “National Blog Post Month” where I post a blog a day. I hope that it’s the start of a good blog-writing habit and that it gives my blog some structure.
Wish me luck!
