Starting a Blog is Like Having a Baby

You hang out in front of the TV, watching old romcoms and eating popcorn. You tell yourself that sometimes you have to try on a few different hats to figure out who you want to be.
Just when you thought you were out of the woods.
Your kid is past the uglies, friends are set, and school is going okay. Sure there's driving, but there's also Xanax. And suddenly, you can't stand to be in the same room together. When you talk, you fight. And if you aren't fighting, you're not talking. Every interaction is exhausting.
This is the time when you really want to just throw in the towel. You're tired. It's gotten old. The reward is minimal. You're out of tricks. You've stopped having fun.
Every post you put out seems like a chore.
A comment. An email. A tweet. "Thank you so much. You don't know what this meant to me. This made my day."
You sit on the couch with a glass of wine and a piece of dark chocolate. You tell yourself that it's the hardest stuff that's worth doing. And the next day, you get up and do it again.
