This blog is going to contain information about my Etsy shop as well as a bit of ranting about motherhood. I'm going to let you in on what it's REALLY like. Going to get into the nitty gritty of it all.

Today was considered a good day for me. There were no poop-related incidents, nothing got spilled and nobody got hurt. That all happened yesterday. Ah, the joys of motherhood. On a daily basis I often ask myself why I haven't started drinking yet. Just a little something to take the edge off you know? No harm in that I'm sure. It's no secret that all of the mom's in my neighborhood add a bit of Bailey's to their morning coffee. No wonder they're all so cheerful!

I've been neglecting my blog again...and my Etsy shop. I'm suffering from serious burnout and I just needed to do absolutely nothing for awhile. I've given myself permission to take a break before the inevitable nervous breakdown happens. I've been feeling on the verge of one almost 6 years now. I think I'm tougher than I think sometimes. All of my friends are like 'Wow Lori, you're holding up well considering all you've been through.' And they're right. BUT they don't know about all of the screaming and swearing into pillows I do. My mom told me she used to do that when us kids were all little. She would sneak off into her room, swear her head off into a pillow and then return like nothing happened. Clever. ;)

After the kids were all tucked into bed, I left the man in charge, got into the car, turned the music up loud and took the back way into the city. Gravel roads, pitch blackness and the possibility of getting lost. The gravel roads eventually took me to a Starbucks. Imagine that! So yeah, a venti mocha frappuccino later and here I am wired and watching Jimmy Fallon, reading GQ, listening to my ipod, and blogging. Yeah, I'm really doing ALL of that at the same time...that's what's great about caffeine mixed with partial insanity. ;)

I've added quite a few new pendants to my Etsy shop. Have a peek. :)
