I don't know about the rest of you, but Christmas done wiped me out (and I don't just mean my bank account)! I love, love, love everything about Christmas, it's just the day(s) after when I feel like I have the worst hangover, which stinks because I don't drink! So yes, recuperation is still in progress for me.
Oh, DO NOT let the "I'm such a cute little kitty!" face fool you! Roxy is 20 pounds o' crazy in a 1 pound bag! And instead of being able to sit at the computer and blog with all of you, I instead have been patrolling my house, or more like stalking about all sniper-like with a squirt bottle in hand, hoping to catch this little furry ball of trouble in the act. What does she do? Glad you asked! Let's see...she thinks my curtains are climbing ropes and the area rug is where she gives herself a mani-pedi; she is constantly kicking the dog out of the dog's bed; she thinks the Christmas tree needs her own personal trimming touch; there is the climbing of human legs, even when the human is wearing shorts; and of course, there's her version of fluffing the couch cushions. So if you're not happy with my recent absence, blame this little thing! 'Cause I do!
Hubby has jumped on the overtime wagon at work, which means that he's been working 16-hour shifts for the past few days, and will continue to work all the overtime he can while they're still offering it. How does this affect my blogging? Let's just say that not having hubby home as much puts me in a serious funk, thus inhibiting my ability to come up with witty and interesting things to say. I'm glad I have a man who works very hard so that I can stay home and homeschool our son, but it still bums me out when he leaves the house at 6am, and doesn't come home until 11pm.
*photo courtesty of the Washington Post And my personal favorite (NOT!!), I'm having computer issues again. What kind of issues? The kind that involve part of my MacBook's power cord literally bursting into flame. Oh yea, it happened! Luckily, the house didn't burn down, my 'puter is perfectly fine, the wall outlet is perfectly fine, and I only burnt a small part of my finger while putting the flame out. Since the power cord is close to four years old, I'm willing to be a bit forgiving about it just spontaneously combusting. However this means that for now, I have to use hubby's laptop, which is nearly five years old, and it runs PAINFULLY slow. Luckily, I found a new powercord on eBay for 20 bucks (versus paying 80 bucks at the Apple store), and it's on its way to me. I should receive it next week, and I can once again use my trusty MacBook.
Hmmm, so much for not making this all drawn-out...oh well, what can I say, I've missed all of you and I just couldn't help myself! So if you've read this whole thing, THANK YOU for sticking around.
Who's awesome? YOU'RE AWESOME!
