There are a multitude of reasons/excuses for my sporadic posting as of late. I feel I owe you, my readers, an explanation, you know, like when you missed school and you had to bring a note from your parents explaining why you were absent.
Reason #1: My grandma is dying. Yeah, she’s been dying for a year now, but this time it’s for real (I think). Every time the phone rings I am filled with both relief and dread, thinking it’s “the call”. Honestly, it doesn’t hurt so much, because she’s been dying a slow death from Alzheimer’s for the last decade. For the past couple of years she’s been a shell of a person, alive only in body. Her mind and soul died years ago, but still, the inevitable is taking alot out of me.
Reason #2: New job is killin’ me. Laugh all you want, but I’ve worked 4 days straight, and chubbs here ain’t used to exerting that much physical labor. After sitting behind a desk for the last 11 years, doing next to nothing, it’s taking a toll on me. The last 2 days have been served in another office in a place I like to call, Hilltown, so nicknamed because of it’s mountainous terrain. It’s been brutal. When I get home I don’t feel like cooking, cleaning, or being a mommy, much less blogging.
Reason #3: My baby (the oldest) is registering for Kindergarten Monday. Not much of a reason or an excuse, just something that’s been bothering me, as I am not going to be able to take him to registration due to work. It really saddens me that I’m going to have to miss it, but I didn’t feel right about asking off this early in my tenure.
So, there you have it. I’m just plain worn out from life. Good thing I have this to look forward to soon.
