Status Report

I have been horribly negligent on this blog the last few months. Gone are the funny updates and overheards, so long to the rants and raves. I just haven't had it in me. My creativity and time have dried up like the bottom of a Nevada lake bed. I am parched for posts. I can't put my finger on it, but since I have started to actively try and cut back on my work life and engage more in my real life this portion of my writing has just gone to the wayside.

There's been more of this

and you readers have dropped off. While I don't love it, I do love that I've enjoyed making homemade mojitos with fresh mint from my CSA. Growing actual cucumbers in my backyard and figuring out that it is just fine that I am not the "crafty mom". I'm the baking mom. While some women do weekly projects with their kids that involve pipe cleaners and paint I noticed that the pattern in our house is that each week we create something new with flour, sugar and eggs. And um.. lovely chocolates, marshmallows, butter and other wonderful confections. Nom!

I think I'm embarking on a new chapter in my life. I'm more devoted to these moments.

I'm focusing on the reviews, working in the beauty and car industry and consulting. While I love pouring my heart out here and have loved having the audience over the last few years things are definitely shifting on the ol' TMC. I don't think this is good-bye. Maybe just a new direction, possibly, heaven forbid, more moments of Zen?

I kid.

Moments of Zen lasts about as long as it takes me to smoke half a cigarette which isn't very long.

By the way, this week we are making Whoopie. Ugh. Even I hated that one. We're making Whoopie Pies and by "we" I mean I will flip out when The Comedian tries to shiv TD with the frosting spreader and I'll curse the time I thought it was a kick ass idea to let the girls shovel flour into measuring cups.

Here's the recipe (courtesy of Jennifer Weiner, author extraordinaire).

  1. I fell in love with mojitos while on vacation last week. I could really use one right about now.


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
