At the beginning of this year I started a to-do list for the work projects I hoped to tackle in January, and four and half months later I'm finally seeing the finish line. That's pretty much the speed at which I'm getting anything done these days, so now you know why things have been a little quieter than usual around here. It's hard to admit, but I'm still trying to figure out this work-from-home-with-a-toddler business, and while I wouldn't trade the situation for anything, it's been a bit of a challenge. Having said that, I think we may have finally turned a corner in the past month. My mornings no longer start at 4 am (we've moved to 5:15 or so, a time I can handle) and after 14 months I think I finally have a baby that will take an afternoon nap. This is life changing for me. And my work. And my blog! I also have a few hours of babysitting a week, which I treasure, and it's made such a difference in my day-to-day life. I feel confident that this will translate into more blog posts and recipes, and maybe I can finally take down some of the sticky notes labelled with blog ideas that fill the wall above my desk. It would be great to finally turn them into something tangible!
