It's been almost two months since I posted last. A lot has happened in those two months, the biggest thing being that Michael and I are currently separated. Sybilla and I are readying ourselves for moving into a new apartment (smaller than our current space) in about three weeks. It's been a very rough two months, but we are slowly moving forward, one baby step at a time.
Over the past two months, I debated about posting the news on the blog. On the one hand I didn't want to share with the world that I was a failure and couldn't keep my marriage together, but on the other, I love blogging and writing. At this point, enough time has gone by that I feel I can safely post about things. In addition to that, I've decided that this blog is going to take a different tack now.
For a long time I've wanted to make this blog a bit more personal and more in line with who I am. I always hated the fact that I felt like I couldn't truly be myself while I blogged or on Facebook. It feels like living a lie. Don't get me wrong; I'm not going to start posting long diatribes against people or things. I just want to be able to share more things, like my interests, what's happening in our lives, and maybe some of my writing. I started Lapiz de le Guerra with the intention on sharing family news and pictures about my daughter as she grew, and I've done that. But it felt very flat and one-dimensional and as we all know, life is anything but!
There will be some changes coming to the blog soon. I plan on continuing the pictures and the stories and features about Sybilla, but I will also be sharing some of the things I love, like cooking, crafting, interior design, writing, gardening, and the creative arts. Lapiz de la Guerra will still be mostly family friendly (Yes, I swear. I'm working on reducing it, but it's still a part of who I am!) and I don't plan on using it as a forum to bash people. I might complain every once in awhile, but there it is. I ain't perfect, ya know!
Thanks in advance for stopping by. I have no idea what lies ahead, but know that you'll be in good company on this crazy ride!
