There are a bunch of reasons behind the periods when I post less here. Sometimes it's just that I'm busy (new baby is still new! just not quite as new as before!), or that my spare thinking time is being used up by other things (like apps) or being squandered on too much Twitter (I think Twitter is awsome, but everything ought to be in moderation). And then, sometimes, it’s because there’s something at the forefront of my mind that I don’t have the oomph for a post about yet.
Lately, it's been kind of all of those things. The biggest one, though, is the missing oomph. The thing is, in about two weeks, I'm going to be starting an honest to goodness full time job. At an office and everything.
And, given the history of this blog, I’ve been feeling weighed down by the need to write something really thorough about this upcoming transition… but it’s not going to happen.
The short version is, I can’t believe I have this opportunity. I am incredibly excited about this job. I’m even curiously excited to see how our family life adapts to me not being sole captain of the home ship most of the time. In what I hope is a move destined to make this less stressful than me going to grad school was, we’ve hired a great nanny to take care of Sir Lump and getting the older kids to school and back.
Still, to say that I am one hundred percent sure that this is the best idea ever would not be honest. But we’re going to try it!
