I’ve been a little MIA lately. I washed hair yesterday and hours later, I realized I forgot to rinse the conditioner out. It was an interesting and greasy day. I was shocked, really, really shocked, when trying to screw the outlet covers in my bedroom (this is not related to my shower mishaps). Note to self: wet floors and screw drivers near outlets don’t mix. I’m officially in my house. Two nights in. The first night, on a wet mattress on the floor. (We’re facing tropical storm weather down here). Marlowe has been one night in (my first night), in a playpen, in my bedroom. Much of the rooms are still left uncompleted, but the main room (the gem of the house) is shaping up nicely. A mix of old and new, but mostly old items: given new life in a refreshing space. I’ve sat on every seat, and in each one I’ve gazed throughout my house in joy and gratitude. I have a nice home, and I am lucky. My friends and family have all gone above and beyond to help make my space: home.
I’ve been wondering lately, what to write about. What do you want to know? I’ve realized that throughout the past few months, this blog has been increasingly impersonal. Not that I’m trying to censor myself, but I just don’t get into many details anymore. I keep many more things to myself: rambling thoughts, single-parenting, work, dating, my co-parenting relationship, and probably much more. I think it’s okay, but I don’t want to be distant either. Like I mentioned, I look forward to many, many more conversations about food, but what else? If you don’t mind, and/or if you care, I’d like to know what you would like to see more of in this space?
Speaking of keeping more to myself, I have a few things in the works, new ventures. I’m not getting into details yet, because I don’t want to jinx it, or claim failure if nothing goes through, but I’m a bit excited and growing increasingly more excited each time I think about it.
Oh, and what are you being for Halloween? I’m a bit (over) excited for my costume 🙂
