This is so hard. I’ve been so busy. This is the first time I’ve had a minute to myself in WEEKS and I have sat here watching the cursor bling for an hour. My blogging motivation is gone. I just want to nap.

Parenting is HARD.

We went from 0 to 4 kids in the last 3 months. Then, 3 days after we became a family of 6, I left for 2 weeks working on the road. My husband is amazing and kept the house running smoothly. He had some help and I came home to his new appreciation for everything I do.

I swore I would be months ahead on my blog when I had all the ‘free’ time, out of town for work. Instead I worked. I didn’t write any blog posts and my impromptu hiatus continued.

Now I’m home and I need to figure out my new normal. I still love books. I’m still committed to the book community. I just need to figure out what that looks like.

I’ve always wanted to start a family. This is a dream come true. However, going into this, my biggest fear was I would lose what little magic I’ve found in the book community and the blogging world. I don’t want that to happen. Please be patient with me. I’m still here. I’m determined to figure this out.

    It’s always family first and never feel bad about that. The thing I’ve come to love about the book community is how understanding and loving most are. That’s one of the main reasons why I was able to start my own blog, so don’t stress out and be happy, we’ll all be waiting for you when you’re ready to share. And CONGRATS on your growing family! 🙂

  2. Holy shit, congrats! I’m glad your dream came true and good luck wrangling your new normal. Parenting is really hard, but I’ve only got the one so I’m no help for advice here. Don’t feel too bad about hiatus and needing to figure things out, the blogging community will still be here when you’re ready 😀
