My mom friends and I have been joking that our immune systems have gone ahead and taken this winter off. One mama imagined hers was in Cabo, and another in Bali. But who are we kidding? Our toddlers have taken them and hidden them in one of their little toddler troves, deep under the legos and tiny tea sets.
Our house has been felled by one virus after another this winter, and this week, I got yet another cold, only two weeks after having had a brutal flu. So I stayed home, applied for jobs, reviewed some films and TV shows, watched House of Cards (oh my Threechum) and ended up revamping my websites!
I’m coming up on my three year blogiversary, and I have never changed the look of my site. A personal blog is like my online living room, and I realized I needed to spruce up the furnishings a bit, to make it more inviting for you all to come hang with me here. What do you think of the new digs? Honest feedback requested: I did the upgrade myself, so I can just as easily change it up, and hopefully it won’t take me another three years to get to it.
The other website that got a facelift is my professional writer site, since i’m on the ol’ job search and needed a more current look. Please check that one out as well, if you have a moment, and tell me if I’m on the right track: www.rheastjulien.com
In the meantime, I’ll be home, chilling with my little snuffler. I had to keep her home from school today, because in the rotating musical chairs of health that her preschool plays, Olive is the one without a chair today, because she coughed her way right out of it. It’s a lovely rainy day, so I don’t mind her company. She’s sipping lemon tea with honey, and watching her favorite movie (embarrassingly enough, it’s a live action Disney flick about double dutch, entitled JUMP IN) and sitting as close to me as she can get.
I wish I could give my family’s immune systems a revamp, the way I was able to clean up my websites. I’m off to snuggle my girl close, and watch some pre-teens jump rope.
