10-month blur

It’s very blurry here actually. It’s been months since my last post and with the very last granules of Summer ’13 disappearing as I type, I have blogger regret. How did I neglect to capture all the great stuff that has happened in recent months? How do I keep this machine running since giving up the freedom of my own gig to work for another I believe in? Sigh.

There are two conflicting facts. I miss this blog desperately and there’s just not enough time. But when I read through the posts and pages here, I realize what a wonderful thing this is for our family. Is it what I thought it would be for me? No, but life takes wondrous, unexpected turns and that’s exactly what happened here. In May, I dove into corporate America headfirst, and think I’ve been in a tailspin ever since.

But it’s worth it–don’t get me wrong! I love my job and the fabulous team of people I spend my days with. But looking back on the last day of summer and imagining all that should have filled these nostalgic pages, well today I just want to be a mom. I’ve never been good with “back-to-school,” it makes me a little blue. They’re off to hit the books tomorrow morning and that’s just the way it should be.

A wise person in my life recently said, “Don’t use the word “try.” There is no such thing. You’re either doing something or you’re not.” Could that be anymore true? So, I can’t say if I’ll pick up my blogging pace or not; that remains to be seen. But for today only and for Anderson historical purposes, let’s play catch-up!

This doesn’t even begin to cover it, but at least I’ve got that first painful post on virtual paper. More to come!

Gotta go, it’s a school night!
