Our girls went back to school 691 days after the pandemic began in our area.
I procrastinated re-registering them and I may or may not be waiting for the other shoe to drop. But dammit – 1 week in and the smiles are just beginning.
Parenting in 2022 sucks. It’s been 690 days since the last time my girls were in school. It was hard then. This is going to be a different kind of hard.
When I took a leap of faith 7 months ago to quit my job – I wore rose-colored glasses and no one could bring me back down to reality.
7 months later – everything has changed and so have I. In more ways than I ever could have imagined.
Sometimes you just need a week off to remember how to exist. A week off to remember what is truly important. A week off to remember that not every moment must be productive.

“You invested in yourself and now a year later – are finally reaping the rewards.
But you wouldn’t have gotten here had you quit.
And you certainly wouldn’t have marked some items off your living list if you decided the path you were forging was too hard.”
