I know, I know. I did that thing where I got so far behind in writing that I just didn’t know how to start again. I think the last time I really meant to write was when Bo turned 15 months. And now he’s more than 16 months…
So, I’m here. I’m ok. We’re taking some vacation time this week and hanging out at the farm so I’m hoping to get a bit of alone time (haha, ya right!) to catch up on some writing. But for now, here is brief status update:
- Bo is finally walking! He took his first real steps a couple of weeks ago and just this week, he’s finally realized that walking is faster/better than crawling. Good timing, because it’s damn hot here and I couldn’t put him in shorts when he was crawling because his poor knees were getting all butchered.
- Summer is so much better than winter. We are spending tons of time outside and, when I’m on my own with the kids, we’re all so much happier when we aren’t stuck indoors.
- We bought a bouncy castle. It’s just a small basic one but the boys love it. Money well spent!
- Work has been a bit rough lately. I have a challenging employee (who was hired for me when I was on maternity leave). I’ve been trying so hard to be open-minded but it’s getting really hard.
I’m feeling like our vacation couldn’t have come at a better time. I know I’ve only been back at work for four months, but I was definitely starting to burn out. I’m hoping a nice break, with time spent out of the city with my guys, will help refresh me. Now I’m going to crack open my eReader and enjoy a few moments of silence by the pool before the baby awakes and the other boys return from their work in the field. The only company I have right now are these girls – and I’m pretty sure they’re too busy chomping on the grass to bother with me!
