Goodbye laziness. Hello blog. How many times do I begin a post with some variance of this? Often, I suspect. But like the boy who cried wolf, it’s different this time! I swear! Perhaps the impetus is this: I’ve had a baby. And while I am happy being mommy, I need a bit more stimulus to the brain to stave off episodes of leaving keys in doors, gas burners on and other telltale signs of mommy brain.
About 9 months after I posted on the bulging fertility of Norway, I myself got knocked up. This time, we didn’t need IVF, which would have been FREE here in Norge. As it was I did have my barn here, which was interesting. So now I am one of the mamma mafia, using my stroller as leverage to push through the Norwegian crowds, taking full advantage of its SUV build. If I had ever blogged on the expat parties I enjoyed so fully, you would now notice a veritable shift to less debauchery and more family fun. So let’s pretend we are doing that now.
Consider this your shift.
