Two blank days on my blogging calendar. Just like that.
I feel like an amateur tennis player who almost wins the first set against an all star champ, but ends up losing the game because I gave my all to win the first points!
Turns out, I hardly have time to blog these days, though I “think” posts all the time, I failed to “write” them! I have made peace with the fact that if I cannot blog every day, it’s okay and life goes on!
If you will indulge me, I will let you know how this happened!
I have sacrificed quite a bit of sleep to get this blog going over the past three weeks, and I am so excited to have reached over 1,000 page views (yay!). Bu this week my sacrifice went to my friends, in particulat two of my dearest girlfriends who have just given birth to three babies in total.
On another note, my company is going through a reorg and we are being told great changes are ahead. What I see is that more work will continue to be done by a too small number of people. I will however admit, I am a little out of it this week — I have not felt very concerned or interested because newborns are far more intriguing, and seeing my friends go through this life changing experience has been a real treat.
On yet another note, I have notified the family we share our nanny with that upon her departure in less than 4 weeks, I am looking to find a home day care for T instead of hiring a new nanny to come work out of my house for both their child and mine.
The dad got so upset, he was taking it very personally. I’m afraid he may never talk to me again! I explained it had nothing to with them — I just can’t handle a day care at my house, that’s not what I signed up for; beside T will really benefit from hanging out with more children, and a bit older too.
There are two contenders thus far, out of which one is already getting me a little worried. Might as well say I have only one prospect right now.
Finding child care can be such a hassle! Without word of mouth, reputable home day cares are really hard to find — when a spot opens, it gets filled from the next child on the waiting list.
When I am so tired that I can’t keep my eyes open, I know blogging can wait. Tonight, I was able to keep my eyes open long enough, but I’m nearing the end.
I will need to refocus and plan my next posts a bit better, another thing I learned!
Off to bed or else I’m never going to make it to my 6AM run.
I’m curious to hear what others are finding is “getting in the way of blogging”. Please share your experiences in the comment section below!
