I'm still around, but things have been pretty hectic:
(1) Things at work are busier than they've ever been. I come home every day feeling like I ran around for nine hours but without the sense that I actually got much done. Those of you that work in offices might be able to relate: I feel like I spend so much time in meetings that I can't actually DO anything like I would at my own desk.
(2) David and I have started going to the gym every day after work (except for Wednesdays, because that's my hellishly busy work day), and it's taken some adjustment. For example, running/speedwalking for an hour a day instead of sitting on my ass. Makes a bit of a difference. One side effect, perhaps: My dreams have been crazy vivid. Am I sleeping deeper?
(3) David has gone back to work, so I no longer have a stay-at-home roommate. That means I actually have to help with dishes, trash cans, and crap on the floor (sometimes literally...remind me to thank our cats).
I would really like to get back into writing nearly every day, because I enjoy it and it's pretty much the only outlet I have other than cooking and swearing.
Also, I was at Walmart today at lunch, and I saw this in the checkout line:
I've showed two people this photo so far (and I put it on Reddit), and no one seems to get it at first. Or they don't think it's funny. But screw them; it's hilarious.
David's birthday is tomorrow. I put his gift(s) in a dented cardboard box I found at work. For anyone who remembers my gift-wrapping skillz from last year...
...that's right. I'm still the master.
