Away for a long while

January 1, 2012

I’ve neglected this blog, and will probably continue to do so. It’s not that Charlie hasn’t said really cute things or taken awesome pictures, but I have cut back on every extra hobby and task to focus on my family’s two priorities right now: my job (you know, so we can eat) and Charlie’s IEP.

The IEP began as a concern and a bureaucratic process. Then we added a stressful schedule of therapies, during and after school. Beginning in October, things escalated and have only gotten worse. Writing about it here feels too public to me. It’s a difficult, heartbreaking process and I don’t want to say anything that could be taken the wrong way and possibly burn bridges I don’t want to burn. So we’ve handled things privately and will continue to do so. The result? Not much to report on this here blog.

Consider us on hiatus, though I may have the stamina to add a few things now and then. In the meantime, find us on Facebook.
