Sorry about my LOOONNNNGGG Hiatus, guys.
It’s been nuts over here. SERIOUSLY NUTS. I think the last time I posted was October 2015. I hadn’t been posting much anyway, but took a break because of a car accident that resulted in a broken collarbone and concussion. Then I was running a lot instead of writing. Then I was pregnant again and trying to manage a household with two young kids, plus keeping fit this time – I DID!!! – and still working two (very part time) music jobs.
But I’m still alive, I’m still here, and now I’m the mommy to not one, not two, but THREE BOYS!
And we’re homeschooling. And I’m still working outside the house 4 afternoons and one morning a week. So it’s nuts, and I am sure I won’t be a consistent poster. But, right now the older boys are working on schoolwork and the baby is asleep, so I’m grabbing a moment to write.
So, a quick summary of 2016:
January took us to Coastal Maine for a week, because why not? I went on a couple cold runs and enjoyed the change in scenery. We caught up with one of my friends on a day trip to Boston and drove past my old apartment.
February I ran my first half marathon (in 1:59:30 – which I am SUPER proud of) with my local Moms Run This Town Chapter. At the end of February I got the happy little double line.
March-May was just normal survive life with morning sickness – though I was lucky. I think this was the easiest round I’ve had.
June we found out we were having another boy!
July was just work and life.
August we went to Park City for a little family getaway.
September was back to work!
October was my 30th birthday… how?
Annnd, little one arrived, right on his due date November 2016!
8 lbs, 20.25 inches long and absolutely perfect!
December was totally nuts with a newborn and Christmas, but we had a lovely Christmas. Even managed a family photo!
And here we are, a month into the new year! What was your 2016 like?
