Mind Vomit

You know what's hard?  A lot of things.  Right now in my life, balance is hard.  Sleep is hard. And not because I have a 3 month old and she wakes up all night.  She is a saint when it comes to sleeping at night.

Have I really not blogged at all in three months???  See, you know why? It's because it's hard for me to do it. Hard to have time to do it. Hard to have time to sit long enough to gather my thoughts.  Hard to have time to sit. period.

I don't have time now either.  I am sitting in my living room, listening to late night traffic on Broadway with my left ear and a mouse scurrying around the kitchen- that I just spent 30 minutes cleaning and disinfecting- with my right ear.  i'm not going to do anything about that mouse either. Not tonight anyway.

You know what I am doing tonight instead?  Work. Catching up on emails. AND eating a lot of chocolate chips. I had to put the bag away because I was getting out of control. I'm not eating dairy or gluten anymore (baby gets sick). So chocolate chips are all I can really indulge in.

So yeah, these three months have been filled with many cool things to write about. We've been to Florida, NC - TWICE. Celebrated JHM's 3rd birthday. THIRD!  He might as well be a million. Cat Squirrel is 3 months old. AND wonderful.

One of these days I will get my sh*t together and put pictures and blurbs of these months up.  I hope to anyway, but I'm really not going to commit to it.

Plus, I feel a giant void in my blog life with Google Reader being gone. yes, I use Feedly, but it's not the same. Instagram is a good way to blog for me.

Here are a few pictures.

I cut my hair.  Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I am still surprised at how curly my hair actually is.

I am blessed to have some super good people in my life.

Emergency Room Shenanigans

 I think I should be done for the night and stop procrastinating.  Things I need to remember to blog about: Halloween, Working - Transition to work again, being a working mom, balance, guilt, weight, birthdays, baby, food.
See ya.



  1. Your the best Mom Carly and a really good friend we are just so lucky to get to hang out with you all once in awhile and watch terrible movies and eat all the good food and desserts you all make. -Sam

  2. Carly, you're a saint. Wish I lived near so I could help out. I'm sure Margie being there has lighten your load somewhat. You ARE a wonderful, caring mother, wife and human being. you're the role model I wish I had when I was in your shoes so many years ago it seems.. I love you and think about you all the time. I know God is with you giving you strength and endurance. You're one super woman!

  3. Love these moments in time... Juney Tunes & Cat Squirrel are my favorite little people on the planet! XO
