Holy cats. My last post was in January. I think about writing in here all the time. At least several times a week. I often talk myself out of it because I don’t think I have something important / funny / informational enough to share.
But, that’s just my gnarly inner critic getting in the way.
I don’t have anything earth shattering to say, but wanted to break the non-writing cycle.
What’s my life been like lately?
Well, my step son is going to be 16 soon and that is wild to me. He was 9 when I first met him and it’s such an honor and privilege to continue watching him grow into adulthood. Also frightening sometimes as well… being a part of a child’s life means shaping them into the person they will be as an adult, so it’s a constant tug of war to find the balance between setting good examples, parenting, and fun. I do the best I can and often wonder what moments will stick out to him later in life… hopefully mostly the good ones.
I’m working remotely most of the time again. #hermitlife So it’s back to a life that involves mostly stretchy pants, pony tails and dual computer monitors. I’m still consulting and loving it. It’s such a gift to be able to go from one company to another and help them through a project/process/issue and see them through to the other side.
I am still loving the married life. We have worked hard to create a life we both really enjoy and love. It feels like a collaboration most of the time and I look forward to continuing to grow and experience all that this life has to offer. Next year will be our 5 year anniversary and we are planning on going somewhere… we are considering Hawaii or Italy. So, I’m excited to see what we decide for that!
I feel like my circle of humans has gotten sparklier and more awesome lately. I’ve been making an effort to go to more events that sparkly awesome people go to… So we can all be awesomely sparkly together. There are so many wonderous and magical people out there, you just need to look for them through the fog that comes over us during the humdrum of every day life.
So, anywho… I feel like I’ve satisfied my need to write a little ditty on here. I’m looking forward to the weekend, sleeping in and adventures with the hubs. Peace out :)
