I can't believe how long it has been since I posted here. Life got the better of me, and even my "super mom" persona wasn't enough to bail me out. Like most working momma's, I got really, really in-over-my-head busy. But, I'm not complaining, because it was all good stuff that I seek out and take on myself. Work projects, end of the semester student needs, kids. In giving over all my attention (and waking hours of which there were way too many or not enough, I'm not sure) to these great causes other stuff suffered. Like sleep. And yoga. And housework. And cooking anything that didn't come frozen from Trader Joe's. And blogging.
So, my house became a wreck, my fanny spread proliferated just in time for swimsuit season, and I've been out of touch with friends and blogs. And then, last week, things settled a bit. The semester ended, some projects finished up, and I finally cleaned, did laundry, went to the grocery store, and punished myself with a few really long hot yoga sessions to get back into form. Unfortunately, I tried to get back into the groove a little too soon. I swear my brain shut off on its own. Some sort of latent survival instinct I suspect.. Anyway, I spent a few days in blissful burn-out mode (thank goodness it was already a long weekend, since I was mentally gone anyway), sitting on the deck in the sunshine watching the kids play in the inflatable pool, and having maybe an extra glass of vino or two.
The mental vacation concluded and I'm functional again. (Yay!). Fortunately, the children have survived all of this, and pretty well, overall. Kids are resilient! I'm looking forward to getting my blog groove back, I did miss it.
Tomorrow is "Opening Day" for League of Dreams, the special needs baseball team we've signed Simon up to try. I'm excited for him to start this new adventure, and it seems like a good place to re-open the blog posts.
See you then!
