It’s been awhile. (Again?)
A lot’s happened in the last few months that has taken up my time. I’ve pondered coming back to this space often, re-engaging in social media (since I do love it), but honestly, I’ve had trouble juggling everything. I honestly do not know how other moms do it.
Charlotte is great (you’ve probably seen her monthly updates). She takes over my entire day, and she is exhausting, but so, so worth all of it.
We moved. I spent a lot of days packing, some great friends came over to help pack and watch Charlotte, and then we did it. We moved! During this chaos, we also switched Charlotte to formula (more on that later). We now live in the suburbs, and it is so quiet out here. We also live a little closer to my family, which is nice!
Twilight loves her new, big backyard. She’s had to adjust to not having a doggy door and needing to ask to go outside, but she is so good, it’s not that big of a deal. She is still not used to being an only dog, though.
Just 10 days after we moved, we left for our annual road trip to New Hampshire so we could spend Christmas with Tim’s family. Charlotte was a serious champ during the two days in the car on the way up, and two days on the way home.
Soon after coming home, all three of us got colds. Luckily, Charlotte’s was very minor (just some sniffles), but Tim and I both took a major hit and were down for the count for several days.
Since then, we’ve unpacked more, slowly been making our new house a home, and are settling in. I’ve been struggling to find a routine, and juggle taking care of a baby, a house, pets, and finding time for myself. But I’m starting to figure it out.
How have you been? Let me know!
