It’s been a hard week, all. Fun and productive, but also soul sucking and exhausting. Trent has been away a few days on business and the kids and I are pining for his return (which will be tonight, hooray!). My big post on Donna’s Dress Shop may look like a fun thing, and it was, but it was also time consuming and I was feeling some major pressure to get it up on the site. Lulu starts school on Monday, so the week was also full of back-to-school nights and teacher meetings, not to mention school shopping and the end of summer camp. My health this summer has been less than stellar, so last week I decided that instead of once again going to the doctor, I would change up my diet a bit and see if it helped. I will do a full post on this endeavor once I’m more confident in what the hell I’m doing, but today I can say that giving up dairy and gluten has dramatically changed my life, but it has been a difficult transition. I’m in the process of trying to decide if this is a cleanse or a full time lifestyle, but for now I can say the process has been emotionally tiring. I am wiped.
On top of all of that craziness, I somehow snagged tickets to Alt Summit when they went up this week. I have no idea how it happened, really, it’s all a blur. But I think the financial commitment, plus the emotional wear and tear, is starting to set in. This is an expensive trip, one where I know pretty much nobody (save my beautiful friend Nicole who snagged tickets as well!), and one where I’m going to have to wear my creative badge with honor. At this conference, I can’t be “Megan, who works in corporate marketing and has a little blog.” I have to BE Crazybananas. This is a huge step for me, and I still don’t know how I’m going to pull it off.
Suffice to say, I’m taking the rest of the week/weekend off. Since Lu’s summer is ending today, we decided to spend the day doing anything she wants to do. Tate will be at daycare and Trent won’t be back until late, so we’re having a girls’ day to celebrate the end of summer. To that end, I won’t be posting links or Instagram photos today, as per usual, but instead, you can find me anywhere there is pink or glitter. (You can always follow our adventures on Instagram, @crazy_bananas.)
Thank you for reading, for keeping me sane and for pushing me forward. Up, up and away.
