Please Pardon the Interruption

Forgive me if I don't post as regularly as I have been. It's been a rough week or so here for us, nothing major, just a boy cutting teeth and pulling himself up on everything in order to stand, and then falling backwards and hitting his head and screaming. I've had a perpetual headache for the last week and am exhausted from the night wakings at 4am. Despite my efforts of letting SoJo cry-it-out, I just can't in the middle of the night. None of us get any sleep then.

To top it off, the house is a mess and husband is crazed about stocking up on some pantry items that we'll need in the next few months, just in case the economic situation gets really really bad and food prices skyrocket. The armchair economist that he is, he thinks it's better to have some real goods on hand rather than a bit of extra cash in the bank. It's not a bad idea, but the timing is awful. Not only is the house dirty, but there are boxes and cans all over the place, waiting for a home that seems at least a week away.

And please, don't think I'm asking for your pity, as I know this is small potatoes compared to some of the things a lot of you go through, but I just wanted to explain why I haven't been posting any high-quality writing here. It's doubly-awful because I have so many things I want to write about, which is in stark contrast to the bloggers-block that I often get. I do want to thank you for your emails and comments, even when I haven't had a chance to respond.

On a positive note, my dear friends had their baby last night. After a day of labor, they welcomed a little girl into the world. I'm hopefully going to meet Soren's newest girlfriend sometime today. Welcome Liliana Beatriz!

  1. Come on, Sojo! Give Mommy some peace!

  2. Good luck with all of your projects, we'll be here when you get back!

  3. I totally understand! Lack of sleep is the worst!

  4. I'm just catching up...thanks for the lovely intro for Liliana. We slept through the night (mostly) last night, employing several different techniques, of course!


I'm a good listener...comment away!
