I apologize that I haven’t written a post in over a week. Here is an update on what’s been going on with me. For the past month I have been struggling on what to do with this blog.

I used to write my posts while my son napped, but that is two (sometimes three) hours that is now gone – this abrupt change in his routine has become a real pain in my ass to say the least!
