Maybe. Look, let’s just be super honest for a second here. Every time over the last few years that I’ve managed to get my butt back in the driver’s seat of this page, I’ve somehow managed to run myself right off the road within weeks, if not days. Life is busy. My kids are (not so) little tiny tornados of chaos and terror, and most days I’m lucky if I’ve been able to eke out so much as five minutes to pull my sh*t together. But I am going to try. There’s been a lot going on in the last year, and I want to share. But more than that, Kaleb wants to share. He’s finding his voice, and he wants you to know it. I’m not sure whether to tell you to run or celebrate this – the kid is just as long-winded as his mom!
So, here’s the deal. From here on out, I solemnly swear that I will attempt to get a post out once a week, and if it isn’t from me, it’ll be from the kid. You might even hear from Mason, though at this point if it doesn’t walk on four legs or have a jump scare he likely doesn’t give any sort of crap about it, so I wouldn’t hold your breath on that one.
My posts will likely be pretty short compared to those of the past – this is because the kids in this house won’t stop harassing me for better food (I’m never going to win MasterChef, okay? Just be happy you even have food), more screen time, and fewer chores, which basically just means everyone is yelling, I’m on an eternal hunt for a glass of wine, and nothing is getting done. Also, the dogs won’t stop trying to eat the lizard and the hamster (why doesn’t hamster have a ‘P’ in it??), which is a daily struggle – more for the lizard and hamster than for me, but still.
The last year has seen a lot of changes in our little corner of the world. We’ve added pets, changed schools multiple times, shed many tears – both of laugher and of the not so happy variety – and we’re walking a new path. Again. I don’t know how frequently the road has been traveled before we arrived to it, but it’s new to us. We’ve been asked where we’ve been. We’ve been asked how we’re doing. We’re here! Again. So stay tuned, as we try to grease the gears and get our engines running again. Kaleb has informed me that I have way overdone the traveling metaphors. Oh well.
Anyway, like I said, I’m going to keep this short and sweet. We’re back people. And not just here – we’re coming back in a BIG way everywhere. We’re bringing back Monster Marchers! There’s even going to be a walk coming up, so get ready for me to harass the hell out of everyone about that. Basically, just get ready. Because…
