Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

Where I've been

OMG, I can't believe it's been this long since I wrote here! Since I wrote just about anywhere!

Since the Mother's Day piece on Babble ran, the AWEARNESS blog closed, I went thru the first week of Leadership Illinois, had my godson & his family visit (this included a visit to Brookfield Zoo and a massive brunch at home), took the GRE, finished up my graduate school application, turned in my application and then my body said, "OK missy, we need a break now," and I slept pretty much from Friday at 6 pm until Sunday 8 am.

Since the beginning of the year, I've done a lot of say no and remove myself from things I loved, but I knew I wasn't giving my all to because I was doing too much. I get a lot of accolades for "doing it all" and "knowing everyone" but I can't do it all and really don't know everyone. Thus the closing of the AWEARNESS blog is super sad for me, especially the check I'm losing for writing there, but it's also well timed. I need the break.

So if this blog is off and on for awhile that's why. Of course, once I hit publish, I'm sure I'll get another surge of energy and crank out a lot of stuff. I have a list a mile long of things I need to write about. 

So what have you been up to? What did I miss? Seriously, three days off Twitter and a few weeks away from the interwebs is like a freaking lifetime.
