Missing On The Blogosphere

I don't know if my absence has been noted, but I've been spending much less time on here at the moment than usual. Because I'm plain and simply exhausted. By the time Calvin is going to sleep, I'm barely able to form a proper thought. My back and neck hurt, there's laundry to fold, papers to sort, cupcakes to bake, costumes to saw, and then there's still this guy called hubby.  I simply need more time in my day, and especially my night!

So, what am I currently up to when I'm not whining:

I'm currently...

... reading:  Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

... trying: To move in a way that is not painful. Trying to get back into shape plus the first sessions with my physiotherapist turn me into a big old pile of Ouch.

...  anticipating: Bedtime.

... buying: Last groceries and accessories for Lily's birthday party on Saturday.

... lusting for: Hot spiced wine, a hot shower and a warm, cozy bed.

... listening to: HIM, the classic radio station in the car, the girls' CDs.

... watching: Rizzoli & Isles (I know, guilty pleasure).

... devouring: Pretzle sticks, dried plums, hot cereal.

... waking up: Whenever Calvin does.

... feeling: Tired, exhausted, drained, but still thankful to have the life I have that makes me tired, exhausted, and drained.

Hoping for a proper night's sleep, and tons of cuddles with the little stinky boy!


  1. I have an obsession with pretzel sticks, they are so good! :)

  2. I assumed life with a baby was the cause of the absence. I can't imagine keeping a blog going when I had a baby in the house!
    Hope you get that shower and some sleep.

    1. I did, Christine, thanks a lot! It's not so much Calvin as everything :-) And thankfully I'm at a point where I am able to recognize and respect my priorities and don't wear myself even thinner by trying to be perfect on all frontiers. Have a great weekend!

  3. I did notice, but like Christine, figured life with baby plus all the rest. Now, if you missed a TToT, then I'd kinda worry. ;)
    Hope you got the hot shower, wine, and sleep. And pretzels. Because they are awesome.

    1. I did get the shower, Lisa, thanks a lot :-) Sleep has also been a little better this week, thankfully. Since TToT is somewhat my end-of-week meditative session, I think I would feel the void if I missed it. I hope you're doing better again soon!
