And I'd hoped to resume blogging with some wonderfully-thought-out, incredibly informative post... but that's just too much pressure for the moment. (Or possibly ever!)
I feel exhausted. We all have colds, and I'm worried about the deep cough (similar to my own) that I'm hearing from the baby.
For a day we were without heat, which was challenging: indoor temps dropped to 52 degrees, and at bedtime we pre-warmed the toddler's room with a spaceheater and took the baby into bed with us. I was so relieved when the technician was able to fix the furnace quickly and easily!
Going further back, there was a death in the family... an abortive Thanksgiving trip (we drove for three hours, concluded that this was a HORRIBLE mistake, and turned around!)... a large and unexpected payment to make...
I haven't felt like writing. Please view this post as an extended excuse, and indulge my self-centered whining out of consideration for my feelings of guilt (because I didn't write)!
Hopefully I'll soon have something more substantial to contribute. (Nap, children. NAP!)
