Another year bites the dust

How I feel when I realize I haven’t posted on this here blog in four months:

img_3399There are a lot of things we can blame my lack of posts on. Holiday madness. Parenting madness. General laziness. A nightmare construction project. A nightmare construction project that was filmed for TV. A nightmare construction project that was filmed for TV and IS STILL NOT FINISHED.

(I have a lot of feelings about that, which I’ll write about someday. After the anger subsides, of course.)

Here we are, on the cusp of a new year. 2016 was crummy, but it wasn’t ALL crummy. I mean, this little human is almost ONE FREAKING YEAR OLD.


What in the actual hell, you guys. I know everybody is like, “The time goes by so quickly!” and hearing them say that makes you damn near sever an optic nerve rolling your eyes so hard, but it’s SO TRUE. It’s sickening and thrilling, all at the same time.

See ya later, 2016. It’s been real. It’s been exhausting. And it’s been really good to be a part of this family … even if it did mean living in an 11-by-13-foot room for 4+ months.



(You probably won’t be surprised to hear that one of my 2017 resolutions is to blog more, which happened to be a resolution last year, too. A gal can dream, right?)
