It’s been a little over a year since I started this blog up again. I was pregnant, and oh so unaware of how time really works while having a baby to take care of. I spend most of my time laying next to her while she sleeps. That being said let’s not get into the whys of how my baby sleeps, there are too many child sleep opinions on the internet for my taste.
Suffice to say, I’m now on my phone a lot more than I would like to be. This year I struggled with this and used a multitude of strategies to combat it. App restrictions, deleting or disabling accounts, to dubbing my phone a glorified e-reader all worked to some extent.
I read a bunch of books this past year (mostly on my phone), I wrote a children’s book manuscript and started a novel (both completely on my phone)! All while breastfeeding or trying not to wake Winifred.
So in another effort to be more productive on said device I’m returning to my blog. Being a stay at home mom (SAHM as they say) can be truly lonely. On top of this, I’m now living on the other side of the country, am surrounded by more fluffy white snow than I’ve ever seen in my life, and know not a soul.
What I’m getting at here is that social media can often be anything but social & I'd like to start using my phone as a communication device. Though blogging is sort of like tearing out pages from your journal and folding paper airplanes then sending them out the window to who knows where, sometimes someone picks it up and reads it. From my bed next to my baby in an apartment in the snow, to your screen whoever you are, I hope these words make you feel seen. And I hope you see me too.
