I wish I had a good answer to that. Like maybe I have been climbing mountains in the Alps, finding my inner peace in Bali, sunning in Tahiti or eating my way through Europe…but no. I have no good excuse for neglecting my blog other than, “I’m so busy.” (Who HATES that phrase?! It literally makes me cringe when I hear it.)
Being busy is nothing new to any of us. When you’re in high school you think you’ll have free time in college but that just gets filled with “study groups” and late night beer runs. After college you think you’ll buy a house and have some much time to enjoy all that cash you’re making (right…) but then you wind up mowing the lawn or walking the dog and buh-bye free time. Maybe when you settle down and have kids you’ll have time because you’ll be forced to be home more. Nope! Wrong again. Now your time is filled with coloring books and playing dress-up. (Not such a bad thing.)
My point is, that no matter where we are in life, we are always busy. There is always something to be done. (And if someone tells you that they can’t join you for a ladies night out because she is “just so busy” you are 100% within your rights to call her out on her selfishness. We are all busy. Make time for your friends. Unless you’re friends are annoying. Then get new friends.)
So, back to where I have been. As you know, I have a toddler. She turns 2 this month and I honestly can’t think of where the last couple of years have gone. Here’s a quick synopsis of what’s up with me…
- Got a promotion at work.
- Became a representative for Wildtree. (Check it out if you’re curious. I’m obsessed!)
- Husband got a job offer in another city.
- I got a new job (working from home) that I LOVE and allows me some opportunities to travel. (Bonus!)
- We are working on selling our house…moving…finding a rental…and building our dream house.
Maybe when I retire I will find some of this “free time” people refer to? Likely though, it will be filled with sleeping in, long lunches with friends, rounds of golf, and visiting all of the places I can’t afford to go right now.
How about you?
