I feel bad about neglecting my blog, but I think I'm just going to enjoy the lull. That's what it is - it's a lull. Just like life has ups & downs, so does blogging, and after 6 and 1/2 years of blogging, it had to come sometime, right?
And honestly, I sort of hit what I'm calling "internet saturation".
Also known as "I'm over it".
You see, a few weeks ago I was on Pinterest and I saw a pin for a spray bottle cozy.
SPRAY BOTTLE COZY.
I just couldn't take it anymore. I know there is Pinterest fatigue, and Pinterest pressure, yes, there are totally a ton of great Pinterest ideas out there, but I think the cozy just put me over the edge.
I mean, are we doing this? Are we really making little aprons to pretty up our cleaning supplies? I thought I was doing OK by finding an all-purpose cleaner that I looked forward to using (bonus for it being non-toxic!), but apparently that's not good enough, and the sleek, well-designed yet functional bottle now must be cloaked in a handstitched cover, too.
I. just. can't.
I like to craft. Make no mistake about that. But this is just beyond the realm of my understanding. Maybe someone had a ton of extra time and fabric on her hands. And it is unique, I'll give you that. But in addition to the pressure to be well-groomed, fit, competent at all things, on time, a financial whiz, document your unique style with a quirky personal flair, be a cleaning machine, have a nutritious cooked-from-scratch meal on the table at 5pm sharp, and whip up themed parties for 12-50 people within 24 hours, now I have to ponder if my naked bottles are an offense to momkind?
I'm over it. I'm going to soldier on in my bottle-cozy-less life, and hope for the best. Wish me luck.
