I'm taking a blogging hiatus for a week or so.  I have to focus on packing, moving, resume-writing, studying, job-hunting, and general life stuff.

I'll probably just post a bunch of pics or something.  Maybe nothing at all.  I have so many things I want to write about, but I simply must prioritize.  Writing about what I think about the Erika Jong article a few weeks ago can take a back burner to packing my vases for now.  My thoughts on it will still be around.  As will what I think about separation from your child after 3 intense, loving years. 

You also may have noticed that names have changed on this site.  My husband (now know as "Rooster") asked to become more anonymous.  I changed names for both him and our son (now "Hawk") as far back as I could one afternoon last week.  It made me cry, but such is life.  Hawk are my son's initials and Rooster was a nickname for my husband long before Hawk was around, so they seemed fitting.

Till then.  Catch you on the flip side, all.


PS:  Who knows if I'll actually hold out and not post.  I'm just giving myself permission not to.

 Our hipster-haircut adventure:
