So, what now?
When I started sharing our adventures here, I had a "hook." Or maybe a few. We were an opposite shift family with four cats and three kids. I worked during the day on my freelance projects, and he worked his second shift job. We split the household activities almost down the middle with him taking care of everything until 3:00 and then I took over. It was pretty good.
Then COVID hit and we were "Distanced." It was fairly easy to document our school-at-home
disaster adventure. And during that time, we became a first shift family. And I have somehow become a stay-at-home mom with a side gig. Something that I never, ever, ever saw for myself. And I don't feel like that's what I want to be.
And now, I'm not sure of my voice. That probably has more buried in it than what I've listed above or even realized, but either way, I'm not sure what this little corner of the internet is going to be.
I'm guessing a lot of people are feeling a bit lost right now. Or at least, I kinda hope I'm not the only one who feels this way. So, maybe that's what I'll focus on. Sharing my lostness to help others feel better.
Or maybe I should try for inspirational and motivational. Because I could certainly use it. Perhaps putting in the work to write about it, will help me find it as well.
Or there's always the crazy cats who are trying to get to the Spider Plants. Maybe this becomes a photo blog. Although, isn't that kind of what Instagram is?
Or. . . . maybe I get super real and share what life is really like behind the keyboard. You know, the eternally messy house, the dinners from a box because I just can't handle any more, the stresses of living in this semi-post-pandemic life . . . That one could be hard. It's a lot easier to pretend.
