Things They Are A-Changing

I don’t think it’s any secret that I’ve been...well...preoccupied.

(coughs, and glances over to the pudgy baby rolling around gleefully on a blanket)

But honestly, I’ve been more than just distracted for a while.

I fell out of a blogging groove and just couldn’t get back into it. It all started a while ago when I crossed over that line (the three-zero line) and there were a crop of other DC style bloggers emerging who were just more relevant than I was. I just couldn’t find my niche anymore. I’ve been getting older, but the Hill staff keep getting younger...to massacre the line from Dazed and Confused.

Then, during the pregnancy, the move to Pittsburgh, the baby and the stay-at-home-ed-ness, I think it’s safe to say I’m out of the loop. I feel like a fraud writing posts about what to wear to work when my “office” requires me to have easy access to my boobs at all times and my clothes must double as drool catchers. I’m still trying to be stylish, but it’s probably not in a way that many politicos want to emulate.

And just to heap on some additional issues, my little family will be moving again.

To New York.

It was unexpected, but we are all extremely happy to be headed back to my hometown for the foreseeable future.

So, I’m going to try something new. I was thinking about writing a new blog. A little more personal. A little more baby and mom-centric. Hopefully still funny enough occasionally to have water shoot out your nose. Still about being stylish and pretty and enjoying life, even though I'm a total spaz. Just with a baby.

What do you think?
