Soooo…I have to apologize for leaving you hanging last week with no sign of a post. And I have to ask your forgiveness again, because I’ve decided it’s time to go on maternity leave. I promised myself I wouldn’t bore you with defensive excuses about how tired I am, or how hot it is in my office (88 at the moment, which on the pregnant lady thermometer translates to 103), or how we are just now finishing up a double bathroom and master bedroom remodel and therefore still aren’t quite ready for baby boy to show up sometime this month (!). I decided I would be like all the other righteous mom’s-to-be and just gracefully announce my hiatus, but dang, it’s hard. I am humbled.
I love this blog, and this driven part of me has a hard time accepting that between a very limited supply of energy with which to get my affairs in order, and the heat, I need to pare back. Day after day I keep promising myself: today I’ll get a post up. But you know what? I’m 8 and 1/2 months pregnant… in August…with a ton of work to do on my nest. (Oh, the nesting!!) By the end of this week, we will finally be able to play musical rooms and move back into our bedroom, prepare the guestroom for all the grandma’s and grandpa’s coming to help with the baby, and finally, FINALLY finish creating a space for our son, right here next to my blogging machine, where he can fall asleep to the clickety-clack of the keyboard.
Thank you for understanding, and loving me anyway. I need my remaining afternoons to rest in the coolness of our basement, or go out for ice cream with my husband, or bob around in the pool like a giant buoy, instead of sitting here watching my ankles disappear and my toes turn to swollen little sausages, in this riduculously HOT office.
IT’S HOT. Did I mention it’s hot? I’m also grouchy too : )
I’m letting myself off the hook for a while to concentrate on the biggest life change we will ever face. And when the sea’s settle, I will come back to you, my dear readers. In the meantime, I intend to move a few more recipes over from my old blog, to keep some fresh content up, but no promises, okay? It’s way too hot for promises.
