Coming Out of My Hidey Hole


Two and a half years ago, I wrote my last blog post. I didn't know it would be so long before I set...uhm...finger to keyboard again.  

The truth is, I was burnt out on pouring my soul into a computer. Also, I started a Master's Program, while full-time teaching and parenting. Then we had our surprise third baby and moved across town with all three kids in tow (more on that later), and then there was a pandemic...sooo.

I recently read two books, Beach Read and What I Mean. Beach Read made me ready to jump into fiction writing again (working on a few things), and Joan Didion's essays in What I Mean made me ready to write about my own life again.  So, here we are.

In the last two and a half years, I've grown up (at least I think I have).  I've changed as a teacher, a mother, a wife, and a friend.  I've got lots to say on parenting three wild children (including the toddler who now officially bites, throws things, slaps faces, and kicks while nursing, sometimes all simultaneously and always while laughing).  During my unexpected hiatus, I've done a lot of personal healing and am still (always, never stopping) working on how to be a better human.  

I'm back, and I'm ready to share some of my wild and crazy adventures with these cubs of mine.
