Live Like a Mensch

Hitting the Pause Button

One of the strange things about working from home is the fact that work time and home time are not clearly delineated during your day.

It's for this reason that I had myself convinced that the addition of a new baby would be no big deal in terms of my freelance writing career. Babies sleep a lot. I can write under almost any conditions. It's a match made in productivity heaven.

Then reality hit, in the form of days wherein I was still unshowered, under dressed, and over caffeinated (yet still sleepy) as of 4:00 in the afternoon. And let's not mention the spitup in my hair.

Oh, yeah. I remember. Babies are a heck of a lot of work. How had I forgotten that?

In any case, I made the executive decision that just because I could be working my normal schedule while BB was home with me didn't mean I should be doing so.

This is all to tell you, dear readers, that I will be taking a short break from Mensch. I am taking the rest of 2013 off from my paid work. It's been a crazy year, and it will be good to just focus on my little family for a couple of months.

Not to worry, however. I will be back in January.

Since I won't see you, I hope you have a restful, fun, and bright holiday season.

And of course, a happy new year.
