It's been a while my friends. I don't want to bore you with my reasons other than to say - you know when Bjork sang "it's oh so quiet". Well let's switch those lyrics out - and sing "I'm oh so tired, shhh shhh."
Not sleeping. Not eating. I am totally stressed.
I'm contributing my verse, as per Apple's instructions. This is my freaking verse.
Like Fantine in Les Miserables - I dreamed a dream.
I did people. I did dream a flipping dream. And life is not quite what I expected. Which is both enchanting and exasperating.
Right now, I am so tired to the bones that my bones are aching. I just need a really huge hug. But then - do not look at me. No. Don't even dare. Because if you do, if you are too nice to me, I will cry.
I am right there my friends.
So instead I am delivering the things you've requested via Facebook:
1. Kitten News: We've hit the teenage months when the cat canters through the house like a race horse. Gai Waterhouse would do well to get over here, because when he runs, he really runs.
I have one good hand, and one battered hand. The battered hand is the hand that Happy likes to attack.
He's taken to climbing the flyscreen.
He's totally, purely, utterly, extremely crazy.
I would like it if he'd sit a little closer to me on the couch at night. I would really like that. Right now I have to play hard to get.
2. A people post merged with part of the reason I haven't been blogging: Last year Matt's job finished up. It wasn't something we'd planned for - and as such, it took some mental adjustment. For some part - it was over the holidays, and it was kind of good because we don't really have anyone to look after our kids; but on the other side, it was super stressful as only money woes can be.
While being able to support and provide for my family has been awesome - it's also wearying. And emotional. And I feel like I never get to see my children enough. And when I do, I am a cranky tired ogre.
There's also the bit where paying bills is a huge struggle. Yeah. That bit.
In the morning I may well delete number 2 from this post. I hate talking about this stuff.
3. Oscar Prep: I am pretty sure all celebrities are polishing up their sequins. Let's guess that J-Law is going to wear Dior. Heidi Klum is going to be attention seeking. Sophia Vergara (if she attends) will wear a fishtail frock. Because she always. thinks. she's a mermaid. And has to keep showing us her incredible hourglass figure. Yes. We're jealous. The men will wear suits. Boring.
4. Miscellaneous: I can't stop listening to this song. If you need a big sob, play this. And watch the clip. And then look at how hot Christina Aguilera is.
This is the post that you asked for.
Feel free to ask me a question. I'll answer it. Ask me anything.
