I must not be the only blogger who struggles with this, but here it is: When I get into a busy period of life, such as moving / Christmas / everyone-in-the-family-gets-sick-one-after-the-other, I tend not to blog it. “Who wants to read about THAT?” I think.
The longer I don’t post, the harder it is to go back and post something. The pressure gets to me. Surely, the post that breaks the silence of two weeks has to be something incredibly profound or an awesome new life hack that will break the internet.
I realize that’s not true. Our thing is being ordinary, incredibly human moms, so it’s perfectly ok for my posts to be ordinary and human.
So here we have it: the bright brush stroke on the white canvas, the first words on the page. Now that I’ve put this post up here, I can get back to the good stuff. And I have some good stuff coming up, as soon as I unpack a few more boxes.
I’ve got a great post on painting tips & tricks, a LOT of summer salad recipes (because who wants to turn on the oven for dinner during a heat wave?!), and some fun backyard summer activities.
If I’m feeling generous, I’ll fill you in on our new home for the next 2 years and my thoughts on how to survive sleeping on the second floor of an old brick house in the middle of the city in Southern Ontario without air conditioning… (Lord have mercy.)
Well, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
See you soon, friends!
