Hey you! Yeah, you! I know, I know…it’s been a long time. Sorry about that. I got tired, then lazy, then a little more lazy, then I kinda holed up with the family from mid-December until now.
This will be short and sweet; no massive recaps here.
I just want to say “thank you”. Even though I haven’t been very consistent with writing, and even though I don’t actually know how many people this reaches, I have to say “thank you” to all of you. Even if it’s just me, my husband (whom I of course force to read this), and my Mom…knowing that I have this outlet and that I can share my thoughts and experiences has made me a kinder, gentler, less insane Mary. And that is good news for everyone!
It’s funny that even though I haven’t shared things recently (they are half written in my head), I haven’t felt as isolated. It can be very hard to be a stay-at-home-parent – and not for all the really obvious child-based reasons. It can be so hard because you feel so alone.
Thanks for keeping me company in 2013. I wish you all the best now and in the New Year!
