I'm still here. Just busy. I shouldn't even be at the computer right now, but I have to find some time to drink my tea. You know, the herbal tea that's brewing in my cup right now because if I drink my beloved coffee more than once a week or so I feel grosser than 10 gross things? Ya, I have to find time to drink that. I shouldn't complain too much. It's not unbearable and since I dropped a couple drops of stevia in it, it's calorie free as opposed to the half and half cream I like to put in my coffee.
Speaking of calories, my weight's okay. It's about where it was 2 weeks ago. Not as low as I'd wanted it, but not super high either. And I did buy myself some new clothes. I still can't fit into my skinnier ones.
The kids are off at school and I have stuff to do. I felt like I was working constantly yesterday and I got next to nothing done. That's the thing about having a kid that's in the stage that Finleigh's in now. I would be cleaning stuff in the kitchen and she'd getting into the play dough. I was washing the outside of the living room window (cuz it's above freezing here and that is a wonderful thing) and she was smooshing her face against the glass on the inside. That in my incredible wisdom and foresight I had already cleaned. And when she got tired of being told no and then being redirected to her bazillion toys that were spread out across 3 floors, she pulled at my leg until I would pick her up.
You know, as much as I'm trying desperately to not wish away her childhood, I will be very happy when this stage has passed.
So now, my mind is whirring with all the things I want and need to get done since the little getaway with my husband is coming up real quick and he's working 12 hour shifts right up until the day we leave and I finally have... well, now... 2 1/4 hours left to myself and I'm plopped in front of the computer with what feels like glue sticking my butt to the chair. (How's that for a run on sentence?) I'm completely at a loss because I'm not sure what to do first.
My tea is now half gone and I'll be getting up soon. I guess I'll be dragging the vacuum out and getting started. Or something.
