I kid you not...I've been reading The Paying Guests and Bad Feminist for three weeks or so, and they deserve so much more of my time and attention. Both are simply amazing. I have about 70 pages of The Paying Guests left to read and about 100 of Bad Feminist. Maybe this weekend. Famous last words.
And since we're getting real, and I believe in divulging the good, bad and ugly of it all...my child has been a nut lately! Not all the time, but he had a particularly bad behavior day at school this past week...to the point that he was sent home for behaving negatively. As you can imagine, as a working mom with lots of appointments, and as a human with a big guilt-meter, it was a very sad day for me. I felt like it was all my fault (even though it's not). We spent the day at home getting a tiny tongue-taste of something like homeschooling so he wouldn't think he could act afool and just come home and live it up. We did work, we colored, we read books, we had autonomy time. He worked hard. We were both exhausted.
On top of all that, I am SUPER enjoying writing for other venues. It's just a new challenge. A new stress, too, though. And to top it all off I'm overwhelmed by my TBR, but more on that to come.
In short, ALL THE THINGS. I'm sure some of you can relate right about now.
Let's drink wine, shall we?
