State of the Blog: What Kind of Day Has This Been
Feb 6, 2023
2023 came in with so much promise. And 37 days in that promise remains unrealized and likely impossible to achieve.
We moved to Montana just after the holiday. I needed to be closer to my family, and it allowed me to come back to work one, final legislative session in the job that I love. But it also means that I am apart from my husband for weeks at a time, and that our lives are in a constant state of disruption, verging on chaos.
Also, if you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I love my miniature schnauzer, Avery, with my whole heart. Shortly before the holidays, she came down with a bladder issue. This turned into an infection, which led to the discovery that she has diabetes. The diabetes is manageable, but the infections could kill her. Add in that I hate needles with the fire of a thousand burning suns, and I am now thinking I may need to undergo hypnosis so I can help with her twice-daily injections.
Finally, having Sloane was the greatest blessing of my life. But children need your time and attention, which means that the energy that I used to pour into myself, into blogging, into side projects now goes into Sloane.
Plus, unlike many of the OG bloggers who came up with me, I still work a day job. To create the amount of content this blog requires with a demanding legal career is damn near impossible if I ever plan on sleeping. But I think I’ve come up with a solution, it will just take a little time to activate it.
Tomorrow, I’ll be diving back in with some Valentine’s Day Gifts and a business casual outfit that is sure to please. Stay tuned.
