Life Happens

You know that saying "You make plans and then life happens"?  Well, that is exactly what has been happening to me in the past few weeks while I have been absent from the blog.

First up:  my Mother, who lives two hours away, is having knee replacement surgery and I will be her full time caregiver

Next up:  I am preggers with our second child

Finally:  I made the painful decision to resign from my full time job due to Mother's surgery and the upcoming baby, due in December

So that explains the absence just in case anyone was wondering.

In the midst of all of this, I believe that the upcoming Baby Shaw may be design challenged.  Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I cannot stand the thought of interiors and design.  Here are the symptoms:

I got a new House Beautiful and could barely flip through the pages

The bathroom reno has not crossed the finish line because I cannot bear to think about accessories and styling

  There are paint swatches up on the side of my house and I really don't care what color it gets painted

  I have no idea what is going on with my fave blogger ladies because I get nauseous when I look at design blogs 

Has this happened to any of you fellow designer ladies with children?  Will this pass?  Is there hope for me and for Baby Shaw?
