A MoneyPenny Update

It's been a long time since I've blogged - a bit under 3 months.  The time since my last post has hurtled by - much of it in a sleep-deprived blur.  I've started writing a few times only to realize I was too tired to put my thoughts together with any sense of coherence.  And for a while there I couldn't even bring myself to think about personal finance - when you are perpetually exhausted, even deciding what to eat for dinner can be more complex thinking than can be managed.  

But recently, as Baby MoneyPenny crossed into the home stretch of the '4th trimester'  I started getting more sleep.  As a result, I'm starting to get my groove back.  I'm reading the news, thinking about our financial life again, and adapting to our new state of normalcy.  Actually, I'm  not just adapting, I'm enjoying the Mommy thing immensely.

The transition to parenthood is amazing, exhausting, thrilling and overwhelming.  I wouldn't trade it for the world wrapped up in a bow, but it's been challenging.  And rather more expensive than originally planned. 

Worth every dime though.  

I'll be blogging more frequently now, and incorporating my new role into my posts. 

It's been too long.  It's good to be back.
