And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Regular Maintenance

I haven't been the best of neighbors. I lurk on my favorite places to comment more than I comment anymore, mostly reading the RSS feeds. It isn't that I don't want to comment, it's that I can't find the time to type. Sometimes I start and get lost and confused within a few sentences, so I just delete.

Work has been running like mad, these twelve-hour days have got to end. Mom is in the hospital. She's in rehab and physical therapy now. The rest of the family's health is taking a dump, including my own (hi, I'm insulin resistant). Village stuff is going wonky. Freelance design work has taken an upswing (I'm rethinking if I even want to do this anymore). I haven't had time to complete a logo, one of my favorite exercises. And in the middle of all this we hit a wall with our old computer and go to upgrade (which I'm still transferring and updating files, finally unpacked the printer last night and got that working).

So busy lately that I haven't had time to trim my toenails, which get more painful everyday. Ouch, ouch, ouch.

Something's got to give, and soon. Just hope it isn't me.

Hope you all are doing better.

Update 1:45pm Just had my morning cup of caffeine. Really hope your day is going better.

Blame me for your RSS laziness I guess.

Not comparing but commiserating. We've been pretty shagged too. Alex now has bronchitis and we get to try to have him breath into an inhaler for 2 minutes at a time, 4 times a day. Oy... Jen is in the middle of a cold, Nathan is just getting over his. And me? I watched little mirmaid from 3-4:30 last night. Then drove to nowhere in particular from 4-5. Both activities trying to get a very unhappy and not sleeping Alex to sleep. Can't wait for good weather and some good health.

I hope your mom gets well soon as well, it's no help at all having a family member in the hospital either.

Family first, man. Cut down on the non-essentials, take care of yourself and your mom.

Before blogs it was just called surfing, not lurking (and what kind of guilt trip is that, eh?)

I hope it was your tonails.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I thought I had responded already, but Blogger must have eaten the comments.

Yeah, Dan. I know you've gone through it too. It's not a lot of fun.

Todd, yeah, surfing. I used to do that. One day I might even have time to walk aroun dth elibrary again.

LBB, toes are taken care of, although I think I missed some of the nail (I have ingrown nails, operated on three times, I think it's getting close to having another operation).
