Public Service Announcement: If you are not done having children, please try to make a conscious effort to spread out their birthdays. Our boys’ birthdays are barely 3 weeks apart on the calendar. Between them and the abnormally high number of other family birthdays in August, I’ve been insanely busy. It’s my own fault for insisting on doing their parties mostly DIY. The things I do for love, huh? Once they’re both past the age of 5, combined parties every year from then on!
At the same time that motherhood duties kicked into overdrive, I finally got some callbacks on Upwork, where I peddle my Virtual Assistant services. I couldn’t very well turn down potential income with the holiday season right around the corner now, could I? Of course not. Did I also mention the revolving door of family visitors that we simply can’t avoid around “birthday season”? My house has been a zoo, a love-filled zoo.
Unfortunately, this has all left me with zero time to update Blerdy Momma. :'( I haven’t been able to draft new posts or edit pictures to share, and my camera is collecting dust with pictures from San Japan still in it. Please rest assured that once all the buzz settles down, I will be back at it. The best way to keep up with me right now is via Instagram where I still manage to post periodically.
A thousand apologies for my impromptu absence. It should all be over soon. I can’t wait to be back. And if you happen to have any suggestions on how I can improve my time management, email me at blerdymomma(at)gmail(dot)com!
