I haven’t written in a while, mostly because I’ve been in a crazy transition period of hiring new childcare while I’m trying to write a ton of beauty pieces. My life feels super unbalanced, which is when I am least happy. My ideal mix is kids+work+social life+family+alone time. But alas, that list has been chopped into kids+work for the past few weeks. The culmination was last night, when my two year came down with a terrible cold, insisted on sleeping in my bed with me, (Jon sojourned to the couch) and literally kept me up all. night. long. Meaning, I looked at the clock and at 5:30 AM I still hadn’t fallen asleep. Blurry-eyed, I continue to feel a bit unfocused…..Which is why this whimsical, over-priced coloring book spoke to my desperate need for escapism.
