The Elephant

I’m not exaggerating. The conversation below is real and not at all contrived.

This afternoon the sun was shining and the kiddos were messing around in the yard, completely content to look for roly-polys and dig in the mud. I was sprawled on the sidewalk, soaking up the sun and delighting in the fact that I wasn’t being asked for juice or a bandaid, or even for what I spy.

Rae came up to me and looked me square in the eye.

“Mommy. When are we going to address the elephant in the room?”

I burst out laughing and when I questioned which elephant she was referring to, she shrugged and trotted off to find some more ants to crush.

She makes a good point. When ARE we going to address this elephant? The elephant of, Holley sure doesn’t seem to write this blog with much consistency these days.

You’re right. I used to be really dedicated to my little corner of internet, but my attention is fading fast.

For one, I’m very busy painting superwoman’s fingernails.


Part of the problem is content driven. I’m not really vegan anymore which is a problem when I write a vegan blog. And to be honest, my “cooking” has been pretty questionable lately too. Virtually everytime we have friends over, we roast hot dogs. It’s all I have energy for.

I’m not training for any races, so I don’t have much to say on the running front.

And while I could talk about these scamps for days, most evenings it takes all my gumption to manage them, much less rehash it all.


This isn’t to say that I’m quitting. Cause I’m not.

It’s kind of like the elliptical.

I get kinda bored on the elliptical, but I like the end result (fitting into my skinny jeans), so I do it.

I’m getting kinda bored blogging, but I like the end result (it’s really fun for me to read back to past months’ posts), so I do it.

Anyway, the moral of the story is that versatile vegan isn’t gone, but I’m only gonna write when I feel like it. I don’t really know what that means, but as my kids get older, I really need to maintain a way to embarrass them.


We’ll save this photo for J Man’s first date…
