The Big Slowdown
Thinga-readers may have noticed some recent slips in my one-a-day-on-weekdays posting schedule. As it turns out, my dreams of a Summer of George where I get lots of stuff accomplished on the blog and elsewhere just didn’t pan out. Our 16-month-old son is a huge handful, much more work in the parenting realm than our daughter was at his age. I’m dead by the time the kids are in bed.
And now my other work finds me assisting with a local election campaign, probably two before the month is out. Couple that with some hefty time commitments at the elementary school my daughter starts in a couple weeks (newsletter + parent website + school marketing) and my brain is about to sizzle.
On the plus side, when you join a Parent Teacher Organization 8 months before your kid even enrolls for kindergarten, you get a pretty good lay of the land and playdates with future classmates.
Anyhow, what I’m saying is, you may see more slippage in the coming months as I acclimate to my new reality.
