Panera Redux

Things have changed since we last spoke, folks.

You remember way back, just after New Years, when I made the grand and glorious proclamation that I was no longer going to be neglectful of you – that I had regained focus, and would from that moment be certain of making this lil’ blog of mine a priority? Yeah, the post where I was evidently full of shit, since I have SO not done any of those things.

Well. I have reasons, but rather than bore you with the dreary details, I shall instead share with you the wonderous event which will actually bring those hopes and dreams to fruition:

LIAM IS IN PRE-SCHOOL.

First Day photo. The kid is three and looked about six. GAH.

Yep – I just did it.  We had planned on waiting until the Fall, but in a bolt of lightning last week my Mommy Intuition (read:  “frazzled nerves”) told me that it was time.  Now.  And as fate would have it, a kiddo had JUST transferred out of our school of choice and there was immediate room for Liam.  Whammo – he started Monday and he LOVES it.

Sooooooo…on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings you are likely to find me sitting right where I am – in Panera, drinking coffee with laptop at the ready – tweeting, posting, facebooking… doing my damndest to develop a flow and a schedule and stick to it.

*sigh*  Dude.  This totally doesn’t suck.

In other related news, I think I’m going to tweak the format around here some.  I’ll still be “Music Savvy Mom”, no worries…but, I think I may loosen up the “rules” I set for myself.  I mean – trying to keep up with three blogs (here, Vacuity and Chasing Liam) is absolutely impossible for a flighty slacker like me.  So, I think I’ll keep Liam’s blog photo heavy for the Grandparents and dump most other stuff here.  Not every post will have a playlist…but most will.  But, I imagine you’ll see more of ME in the posts – and likely will see posts more often since I won’t have any self imposed topic restrictions.  Or something.

The BIG news, however, is that I have another site in the works.  It’s collaborative, with nine or so other awesome, kick ass blogger Mamas (and Ash) who also love music and whose musical tastes run the gamut.  Some of them are folks you’ll expect to see hanging with me, others will be a total surprise.  It will be ALL Music, all the time, and it will ROCK. And yes – the Guest DJ Shuffles will commence, and they will be a regular feature. Working on the site set up now – WOOT!

So.  Yeah.  That’s it – thanks to Pre-School, I am re-immersing myself in my music, my “me-time”, my writing and my friends.  And in Panera, with their nummy coffee and free Wi-Fi.  I seriously need to talk to them about some sponsorship.

I’ll leave you with the totally random Playlist I’ve been blaring on my headphones as I’ve been writing this post.  Lemme know if you love it!

Oh, and guys?  I’ve missed you.  *sniff, sniff* 😉
