Pumpkin, my little girl kitty, is walking on my desk making typing nearly impossible. At my feet is my son dancing to music while our Moo kitty sits next to him. These are whom I spend my day with. Granted, I don’t have deep philosophical conversations but the kitties and baby keep me smiling and laughing all day long—even when I’m trying to work.
So right now, I am surrounded by my clowns and type this in between petting, tickling and lifting baby and kitties. It’s a fabulous day for me.
It was a girls’ weekend and we all know what happens during those—the unspeakable: “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” But for me, Vegas has been the place of wonderful things—realization, marriage and even, pregnancy. This trip wasn’t any different as it provided me with reflection.
Like many women, I’ve struggled with the family-work-life balance. Sometimes to the point that I wonder about my choices. But during this trip, I realized that I’m truly blessed. I love my husband, my son, my friends, and despite the bumpy road sometimes, my days. It was good to get away. It allowed me to recharge my batteries, spend time with friends (the new, the old and the cousin) and introduce myself to the new me (the one that’s a mom and happy wife). It was a fabulous weekend in Sin City and I am glad that I left a little bit poorer but much richer.
So April has come and is almost gone. This blog has been quiet. Too quiet.
If you remember I started this blog to get rid of the fog that sometimes clogs my mind and makes it difficult to write. Well, this month I had so much work that when I had the time to write I had to be writing for money. I’m lucky.
So when the July, August, and September issues of magazines come out and you see my byline, remember that this blog was quiet because I was being prolific for the masses. And for that, I am thankful.
