Why have I not been writing much as of late?
I'm not sure. Partially, I'm just in one of those natural lulls that fall between periods of productivity. I just haven't had that great spate of ideas that leads to vast amount of blogging in recent weeks.
Also, I have sorta-kinda reached a crossroads in my birth junky path - I have finally decided to lay down the idea of becoming a doula (quite voluntarily, don't worry), for now at least.... and while I hadn't really had my heart set on that anyway, it does leave me wondering what my eventual role will be in the birth community. Am I fated to be forever-and-only a birth blogger? I hope not! But you can read more about that on my other blog in my recap of last week's DONA birth doula training.

When I get back on the blogging band wagon, my first project will be not a post but a guest post for a sister blogger's site, also on the topic of hyperemesis gravidarum. Stay tuned; I'll post the link! I'm hoping to write something worth reading, but no guarantees.
Also (though I know this sounds ridiculous to moms of many), I am finding that life with two kidlets takes all of my time - even though one of them is still non-mobile! But housework, teaching, MOMS Club, playdates, AWANA, preschool, life in general - I find that it demands all of my time and energy - and then some! So blogging has had to take a back seat, though I still love to find time for it whenever I can.
In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week! Love to all!
