So! You lovely ladies totally came through and the discussion on that last post was f*cking amazing. So, so interesting, insightful and thoughtful. You absolutely inspired me in the writing of my post.
And I would be putting up that post instead of this one, except…well, life. Early this week my daughter had a few nights that were really hard. They were the kind of nights that make me think things about being a mom that I don’t think most mothers think. They were really, really hard, the kind of hard that makes me wonder if I’m going to make it through the next few years with my sanity in tact. The kind of hard that makes me fear for my daughter’s future contentment.
And then last night, right when things were getting better at home, I had two PTA meetings, one for each of my kids’ schools.
So yeah. The post isn’t written yet. I’ve had a lot on my mind, and I’ve been emotionally exhausted. The only thing that got me through some parts of it, honestly, was the conversation happening on this blog. I so appreciated being able to engage in a meaningful discussion about a topic that interests me, especially when real life was totally overwhelming.
I plan to have the post up Monday. I have all my links ready, and my thoughts mostly organized. I am so looking forward to getting it all down (parts of it are written already), and then putting it out there. I am very much looking forward to the discussion that I hope will follow.
I’m sorry that conversation isn’t taking place today. It’s frustrating when life gets in the way, but I’ve been around long enough to get over it and let it go. I apologize for not following through in the way I planned, but I promise I will follow through eventually.
I hope you all have a great weekend. See you on the other side.
