blank page

Forgive me for not being on my blogging game lately. My days are full from start to finish.

I wake up between 5:30-5:45, catch a bus downtown with K by 7, drop her off at school at 7:30, and I'm at my desk by 7:45. Then, it's go go go until 4:45 when I leave, fetch the kiddo, and get back on the bus to come home. By the time we've had dinner and get K bathed and in bed, it's sometimes close to 8 pm. And, frankly, the last thing I want to do at that hour is write.

The last thing I can do then is write. My mind has become a full slate at that point, incapable of clearing the way for new information -- or at least incapable of putting that new information into words.

Even though I miss it. I mean, I'm writing this now. But I miss writing real, thoughtful, meaningful posts. I miss writing about topics I care about and that interest me. Not just about infertility and adoption, but women's health, life, and other stories I enjoy sharing.

Someday, it will come back to me. I hope. Until then, I open a new post in Blogger every few days. I sit and stare at the blank page for a moment. And then, I close the window with not even a draft to save.

No worries. Life happens.

Transitions are hard! After all, in a few short weeks, you uprooted and moved to a new city, changed jobs and day care. That's so many new things that it's no wonder that you're feeling overwhelmed. Hang in there!

Good luck with all this settling in, in your new home. It's a radically different routine to adjust to, take all the time you need. :)
