I've been in a rather dark hole lately. I keep waiting for the feelings of hopelessness to pass as they have so many times before, and for the real me to return but so far - nothing. I have, of course, thought this to DEATH (I wish it would die) and I have, of course, identified several reasons for why things aren't changing this time.
There's a lot more to it than mere sleep deprivation though that certainly does not help.
The stupid (waaaaay too smart) dogs keep breaking the fence so they must be inside 24/7 and closely monitored on all bathroom breaks. This makes me crazy, especially because T-Bird paces and whines and carries on while inside. I am convinced he has a girlfriend somewhere and I hope our neighbors dogs are spayed. If they aren't then I'm sure we'll be seeing little big-headed T-Bird pups eventually.
Kate was a lion for Halloween. Superman was a construction worker. I was a tired mom who worked all day (i.e. myself.) We spent a few hours at the church carnival thing, before coming home to eat Chinese food in bed before crashing from exhaustion. Except I was up a few hours later with the teething baby. Of course.
I'm devouring a book by Mary Roach called Spook. It's good stuff. Whenever I have a completely delicious book to read I have to consciously focus on slowing down my eyes and forcing myself to read slowly. Otherwise I race ahead, greedily sucking down the words as fast as I can, and before I know it the book is done and I haven't really taken the time to enjoy the experience.
My RSS feeds are all screwy again. Some update and some don't and I don't know whether to blame Thunderbird or Blogger.
There's not much else to say.
