Did you miss me? Wait — maybe don’t answer that!
First of all, I must apologize for my two-month absence from this blog, and with nary an explanation to boot! Honestly, the past three months have been the most challenging in my professional career and I honestly didn’t have the time, energy, or desire to post about food or frugality or anything of the sort. I basically wanted to vegetate in front of the television with a cat on each side of me and a giant cup of tea in my hands. This is what has gotten me from August 22nd to October 27th.
I’m inspired to begin writing today for many reasons!
1. I am done work! Today was my first day off. Indeed, my next day of work is set for November 14th, 2011 because…
2. I am 9 months pregnant! My pregnancy has been a dream come true (knock on wood). I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. My due date is November 6th so now the waiting truly begins!
A Whole Lot of Woman
3. I have been inspired by a great friend of mine who writes a blog about her life, specifically her marathon training. She is an inspiration, even though the desire to run a marathon myself continues to be, uh, nil 😉 Check out her blog as I make an appearance in the latest entry!
Even though I am only one day into my leave, all sorts of thoughts are running through my head. I am back to writing down all of my expenses, thinking about what sorts of things to bake, and making preparations for the arrival of my son. I’m not sure how the maintenance of the blog will be affected once he is here, but I think this will be a great project to focus on for the next year.
I will try to post once a day, although may miss a few days here and there (especially that day that a person, um, comes out of me). I won’t take a picture of everything I eat, or even most things I eat, just the really, really awesome things I eat. My focus will continue to be on health, frugality, and trying to live an enriching life that is a little bit mainstream and a little bit hippie. I am sure I will also talk lots about becoming a mom! I will be cloth diapering, breast-feeding, and baby-wearing. But, no, I will not start smelling of patchouli. I don’t think.
Thanks for stopping by!
