I can't believe I've been away for two weeks! Among many of the changes I've experienced in the interim is my new relationship to time--I have no idea what day it is, what month it is, and what time it is. I started writing this post days ago, but couldn't finish it until last night. I have watched the sun come up more times in the last two weeks than I have in the last (almost-gasp) 31 years. And--in case you hadn't heard-- I have a child! Wowzah!!
I wanted to write a post about what motherhood has been like thus far, but I am realizing that I don't really have the mental energy to compose my thoughts. So many things are swirling around in my brain about how my life has changed, and how I've changed, about what I've learned, and how much more I don't know (and wish I did), but I think that if I try to write about all that right now, it will just be a jumble of non sequiturs, so suffice it to say that having a child is, as everyone says, the most life changing thing that can happen to a person, and I plan to share more about that when I'm running on more than three hours of sleep!
I have been thinking about the blog during this time that I've been away and missing this space, so I would like to get back to trying to blog at least a few times a week going forward. I am going to try to post 2-3 times a week utnil things settle into a bit more of a routine. I hope you'll check back often to see what's up!
The picture above is from an impromptu trip to the beach with Neve, Jeff, and my sister who is visiting us (and basically helping me to maintain my sanity). It was really a perfect day, and little Neve was so peaceful. I can't wait to do that again.
