It has been a while since I have posted, for a myriad of reasons, none of which are even reasonable. There are times when I get so distracted with life that I can’t seem to buckle down and focus on other things. As a mother, it has become increasingly difficult to be the same scatter-brained and flighty nitwit I have been in my youth. Although I am still plenty youthful, being a mother and a divorce’ does tend to make one considered a trifle more adult and equipped to handle multiple life circumstances that are thrown at you. I always think of a line from the movie “One Fine Day” which features Michelle Pfieffer as an overwhelmed mother of an adorable little boy who says something about how she has balls in the air that she is trying to juggle and if she drops one then they all go down. I get that but for some reason, I have always struggled to juggle multiple things in my life without dropping something.
I won’t get into the reasoning for my somewhat lackadaisical attitude that I have been sporting lately, because I am hoping that I have reached the end and will get back to the more important things in my life that need to be handled first. My children are growing up so quickly that I feel that I should have guilt issues when I want to get out of the house for the day and be a grown-up. But alas, we all know that you should not feel guilty for wanting to feel like yourself rather than just a mother who is the shell of her former self.
As I am writing this post, I realized how scattered I truly am, seeing as how the post went into a completely different direction than what I had originally intended it to be. The point remains, I hope to get back to regular postings and be the best damn mommy blogger I can be.
