I'm one-quarter of the way through the school year.
And I haven't blogged a single time.
Remember that time I blogged every day of 2010? Yeah, those were good times.
Life is busy. Good, and busy. Between work, motherhood, and wifey-things , I'm doing my best to stay afloat. I'm in the busiest season of my life. But I know it's just a season. I work hard through the day, get in as much Mike and Liam time as I possibly can, put Liam to bed (Mike is never far behind at this point), and then stay up until about midnight grading assignments and getting lesson plans together.
This is the first time in over two years that I've felt like I'm on my A-game at work. Two years ago, I was pregnant and, naturally, that was where my focus was. Last year, I was dealing with post-partum depression (did I even mention this? I was never totally sure how to bring it up...). This year I feel like myself. Maybe a slightly more exhausted version of Bekka. But I'm definitely me again.
I think about you all from time to time. I think of cute things to write...things I don't get around to. I'm on Fall Break (hooray!), so this seems like a great time to play catch-up. I want to tell you about all the things I've pinned that I've actually attempted, all the cute retro-outfits I've worn. And of course, the adorable things Liam has done.
You really won't believe how much the kiddo has grown. So here's a little proof. :)
Thank you for letting me ramble. It felt good. So good I might just come back here and do it again soon. :)
