The trouble with blithely promising to put out a month-long in-depth series of blog posts is that my life doesn’t always prioritize time for blogging in quite the same as my head. So, my Merry Merry Month of Metablogging series now clocks in at one post in 10 days. At this rate, I should manage to pull off a staggering 3 posts in the series by the end of the month.
Anyhow, life has been busy. Nothing too dramatic. More of the same. Work. Parenting. Chaotic house.¹
We also went down to the in-laws this weekend, for the first time since December. It’s not that big of a trip, but it still takes a lot of energy. Between time in the car, time spent dealing with little ones, and time spent socializing with the people we made the trip down for, I end up with pretty close to zero time for online activities. We got home at around 2:30 last night (or this morning, if you want to get technical), and I find myself feeling jetlagged, even though it was a car trip.
Now that the wee ones are sleeping, I have a bit of time to blog.² And there is a backlog of things to write. Again. I really want to do the Monday Mission for this week, which just sounds too tempting, so I’ll probably do that before doing things I actually should be doing.
Anyway, that’s where I am.
¹ There’s been some ongoing stuff relating to home repairs that has sucked up an inordinate amount of time and energy, too. I don’t even want to get into it here, because then it would be allotted more time and energy, and I’d rather have fun blogging than get riled up. I get riled up even thinking about how riled up I would get if I started blogging about it.
² Especially if I ignore the mess in the kitchen, the laundry, the remaining unpacking, the bills, the letters I owe, and the work I need to do for my job.
