I feel like I owe my blog an apology.

I have been completely checked out lately. It's taken all I can muster to get posts out regularly these past few weeks. Even right now, writing this entry was the last thing on a to-do list that included some pretty annoying stuff.

But here I am. It's Thursday night, I've got a headache, Greg is off watching the Cavs with a buddy, Veronica is asleep and I'm fading.

I just knocked back some Tylenol with a swig of Amstel Light. Classy, I know. 

You're probably wondering what happened.

Well, aside from work and life and the baby and the husband and all the other stuff, I've started a new writing project and it's been consuming me. For a month now I've devoted every free minute I have to it. The second V goes down for a nap I'm writing. I take notes all day long, write for hurried 45 minute breaks at work, and I even write at night now, after V has gone to bed. Like I said, it's been consuming me.

This is a good thing. It's a great thing, even. It just means that everything else, including this blog, is suffering for it.

So for now, please forgive me. I'll be back soon, I promise. And know that the less you see here means the more there is in a word document on my computer. 

Here's another video of my little walker.

    Best of luck with the writing project Claire – this is wonderful news that you’re consumed with it! I was thinking the other day about your comment that sometimes you feel obliged to write on this blog even if you don’t have something to say. Yes, you have countless readers who I am sure love reading Life in Chicago as much as I do, but please don’t feel there’s a burden of expectation. I guess I can only speak from my point of view, but I’m just thrilled you’ve continued to share some of your life and love and learning. If you’re absent for a little while from here, we know it’s because you’re directing your care and attention to loved ones and dreams that need tending:-)
