It’s been nearly a month since I’ve managed to carve out the 20 minutes or so needed to update my blog. Not that there haven’t been 20 minute stretches where I’ve been sitting around doing nothing, but rather just finding the mental (and sometimes physical) energy to compose 250-400 words in a coherent order has been tough lately – but that doesn’t mean I’m not still talking.
Most of my energy over the last month has been focused on getting started in a new job. Without really meaning to, I went from one really large company to another. While the job is very similar, it’s very exciting to be starting out on a new path with new challenges.
That new path has included two trips to Atlanta (corporate offices for this job), Toronto (to meet with customers) and a few extra runs into the city to meet with colleagues and customers.
Now a month in – I think we’re starting to find the groove and get into a rhythm of work and balancing the rest.
The spring also brings with it the bigger track season for 15.5, the more important softball season for 13.5 (including the school team) and the start of obstacle course races for all of us that get sprinkled in.
In looking at the school calendar, next week is also the close of the third quarter – which means its time to start getting into the home stretch of school and get the summer all teed-up. This year 13.5 is going back to camp (we’ll do some shopping) and 15.5 (who will be 16 in the summer) is staying home and working. No telling what that means just yet.
So yeah, I’m still talking – just more of it out loud (and often to myself) than on here just because for the only parent – spring is the busy season.
