Cut yourself some slack
I had good intentions. I had a blog post started and time set aside to finish it. But then my daughter, who's had a tough start to the school year and is battling a cold, needed some extra love and attention. And even though I have really high standards about post length and am typically very good about keeping to my schedule, I made the choice to put her first, which gave me enough time to write this one short paragraph and call it a day.
Sometimes you just need to cut yourself some slack.
