Getting My Mojo and My Email Back

So as many of you have probably noticed I’ve been MIA at my site and here at Alas for the past year. I try to put up the occasional post, but taking care of two infants is really overwhelming. I promised myself I would get back to blogging when the babies slept through the night, and finally last week, after 8 months we had to let the boys cry it out. I decided not to feed them anymore in the night, and it only took one night for them to sleep through the night.

I’m already starting to feel better, and I’m getting my mojo back.  My career and my site have been suffering, and I’ve decided I’m the poster child for family leave.

On another note, my email is messed up.  This weekend I was going through my email, which has really piled up, and I realized I’ve been having email troubles. Several emails I’ve sent haven’t gone through. I’ve been receiving messages (I think I’ve gotten all them them, but who knows.), but there was a problem with the server where messages weren’t going out.  In the fog of my sleep deprivation, I somehow missed that this was happening, so if you wrote me and didn’t get a response, I’m sorry. It seems that my emails was not working properly, and I don’t know how long its been happening.

In the meantime, I’m excited about blogging and writing again. It may be at a slower pace, but my goal is 2 substantive/original posts a week, and 2 general posts a week. There are so many things to write about. We are in the Obama era, and I have a lot to say about our first black President. I’m also starting a new blog about parenting and diversity, which I will unveil soon.

I’m happy to be back, and thanks for sticking with me through the semi-hiatus.  I’ll also try to add some baby blogging, so you guys can see how the boys have grown.

    Sympathy for letting them cry it out, which worked with both of my kids (not twins) but was hard on us parents.

    Hey, take it slow. Everyone’s happy to see you back, but don’t get too excited and try to do too much at once. I’ve made that mistake when coming back to things after long hiatuses, and it’s a great recipe for burn-out. Easing back in gradually is the way to go.

    And…glad to see you back!
