There's a chapter in Mindy Kaling's book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? in which she extols the virtue of the Irish Exit. An Irish Exit, for those who don't know, is when you leave a party without saying goodbye, perhaps because you've had a few too many. Not that I'd know anything about that... While some may consider it rude to slip away without saying goodbye, Mindy argues it's really the polite thing to do. No big fuss, no interruption, no forced farewell moment. I tend to agree.
A few months ago, at the start of this new but fleeting window of time where my babies are small and my career is busy, I realized just how little time I have in my days for hobbies. Or showering. So I decided to take down the blog. The easiest way I knew to do that without permanently deleting it was to make the blog private. A few people have asked about the blog going private and I feel bad for the confusion. I hope I didn't offend anyone who thought I took the blog private and didn't extend an invitation to keep following. I'm not currently posting and the blog isn't private. It's just hiding. I made an Irish Exit.
So that's the deal. Hopefully one day soon I'll find a little extra time in my days to blog. Or shower. Until then, I'll be that girl on Instagram that really needs to wash her damn hair already. (God bless dry shampoo.)
