Checking In

16 December 2013

Hi. I’ve been meaning to call you for days. No, really. It’s not you. It’s me.

It’s Christmastime. And it’s two-jobs-and-a-toddler time. And it’s help-husband-launch-his-art-career time. And, okay, I’ll be totally honest …

I’ve been writing for another blog.

Lots of other blogs, actually.

For money.

I feel so dirty.

Not really. I feel great about it. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to show you what I’ve been writing ’cause I’m ghostwriting, and I think people are supposed to think I’m their insurance agent or realtor or whatever. And you’re thinking, “Insurance agent?” Ya. You wouldn’t want to read it anyway. I tend to tell people I write for other websites, and then change the topic really quickly before they start asking follow-up questions and I have to admit that I’m not appearing on Babble or whatever the other cool networks are.

Pause for a cute picture:

And I’ve been trying to get something like a website up for Husband so we can put something on a business card, because his art stuff really is going amazingly well. I’m terrible at creating real websites. The couple of times I’ve done it, actually ventured into territory, I have set aside a whole day and consumed a lot of coffee and been really stressed out. I don’t have whole days anymore, or the energy to be stressed out, so I’m faking it. You can take a peek here if you want. It’s live. It’s just not really being thrown around yet.

Pause for a cute picture:

And there is a lot going on in my head. I want a farm. I have us on an aggressive plan to get out of debt in the next 11 months (so we can buy a farm). I have a toddler who has started hitting and pushing out his eleventh tooth and throwing really hilarious temper tantrums, and I want to tell you all about it and get your collective insight. And the holidays have been weird in this new world we entered last April, and I’m processing through it. Oh, and I tweaked an old cookie recipe for the cookie exchange at church last week, and it’s divine. That’s coming at ‘cha too. Hopefully in time for you to make some for … Santa. *wink wink*

But it’s very early in the morning as I type this, and I really need to go to bed. So instead of ranting about the food industry or enticing you with chewy cocoa cookies and their candy cane glaze or musing on life, I’m going to throw out some pictures and sneak away to bed while you’re distracted.

Enough about me. What’s new with you? What’s been going on in your world this last week? How are your Christmas parties?

      I know! I want to tell him that girls have cooties, but she’s sooo cute. 😉

Well?! Don't just SIT there! SAY something!
