How in depth should I go? I don't want to come across as bragging in case the person I'm talking to is going through a terrible time in their life, yet I don't want to sound completely lame at the same time. My mind races and I usually stammer out "Oh just working and trying to be a good mommy." That's pretty lame though huh? That usually leads to the person asking where I work...which leads to me trying to explain my complicated-sounding job. It's not difficult, it just uses terms that are different so I usually just stick to saying that it is a repossession company.
So I was thinking about it last night as I was driving home and instead of sounding lame and having a life consisting of only working and nursing a baby I came up with a few alternatives.
So what have you been up to these days?
Option 1: Trying to work out when I can to lose this weird bit of loose skin on my postpartum belly . That's a bit TMI for someone you haven't spoke to in a couple of years, no?
Option 2: Reading my new Kindle while nursing my baby. We finally got the hang of breastfeeding and I don't have to bite a washcloth when he eats anymore! Yahoo! It's such a great feeling to know that, hey, those are my boobs that gave this little guy his
Option 3: Other than working and taking care of Levi, we've been trying to decorate our home we bought last October. It's way harder than I thought it would be! Ding ding ding. I need to write this on my palm for the next time I'm around strangers.
What do you think? Am I just over analyzing this? Do you have a go-to phrase when someone asks what's new in your life?
