I am going to confess something that I really shouldn’t. I was like a kid on Christmas Eve on Friday. I know us bloggers are meant to be cool and take invites to events casually; but not me. I was sooooo flattered and felt like I had been picked first for some kind of sports team. I am desperately uncool, I know, and I really don’t care.
2 years ago on the 20th of July I wrote my first post here. I had the vision and the passion, but not the time or the energy, and I had no idea where to start. I tried for a while but after 3 months I admitted defeat, it was all too much for me, so I focused on the writing that I loved and growing my baby and my own business.
The past two weeks have been incredibly stressful and beyond exhausting. It began with me getting sick and then Charly got sick and then her teeth started forcing their way through the gums, leading to an entire week of hours of screaming at a time in the middle of the night. My poor angel has been suffering so much and nothing I have done has made it any better.
It’s been a tough week, with me fighting a throat and sinus infection with backup from antibiotics. Charly started to get flu too, but we seem to have headed it off with some flu medication. I did manage to get a lot of work done somehow; and renew my drivers license and attend a client meeting and get some great content ideas for work and made some really exciting decision about the blog… so tough, but not impossible.
So, it’s been a rather unpleasant week. Monday started with taking Charly to get her MMR and Hep A vaccinations. I had the usual anxiety and trepidation I think we all feel when our babies (or toddler) are going to get a jab of any kind, exacerbated by our girl’s utter terror of anything resembling a doctor.
I can’t believe it’s been a whole week since the #CTMeetup! For those of you not in blogging circles, this is an event organized by the incomparable Cindy Alfino, where bloggers across all disciplines step out from behind their screens and get together in real life.
