When I was a stay-at-home-mom, there were several blogs I followed regularly. I would become incensed when bloggers didn’t update their blogs for days at a time, sometimes a whole week. Now, I am that blogger, and I am angry with myself for it.
Morning sickness, which my husband and I have renamed “Progesterone Poisoning” is the primary culprit. Lately, I have it worst at night. Another culprit is weaning. I have night-weaned my toddler, and that makes bedtime a much bigger battle than it used to be. So when I finally get V to sleep around 8:00 (it used to be 7:00, nothing stays the same with a little one around), I don’t feel very creative.
But that is no excuse! As a teacher, I would tell students, “You have to write without the muse! Put your fingers on the keys and write! Do it now, as Goethe instructed!” And so, I chide myself.
I promise, I will. This week, I had a huge spike in my blog visits, and I’m not sure why. When this has happened before, the “Referrers” section of WordPress’ Site Stats made it clear where the hits were all being directed from. Not this time. Although, the blogs that were read and reread were the Kelle Hampton blogs, and the comments were all related to those blogs as well. No one has anything to say about homewrecking sluts? Ah, me.
Coming soon: How I night weaned my co-sleeping daughter, my ideas about fixing public education, and thoughts about pregnancy and prenatal testing, and my Paul Rudd story.
But for now, thanks for coming back to check on me.
