I haven’t been able to keep up with much of anything recently. I got so busy at work this past week and I was sick the week before that, and I am feeling a little overwhelmed and abused lately.
I just got through reading everyone else’s (and their mom’s) posts, catching up on all my favorite food blogs and commenting where I felt it was warranted. I’ll try to get a couple of posts up in the next day or so.
I’m behind in EVERYTHING right now. I’m behind on the blog, in my scrapbooks, on twitter, on sleep, my bills need to be paid…ugh
Plus, Lola got fleas, and infested the house and Gwen, so I was dealing with that, and the kitchen is now filled with laundry because I was trying to wash all the clothes so that I was getting any potential flea eggs out, etc.
AND on top of all that, I found out that my great aunt – one of my favorite people – is really getting ill. I mean I know she’s getting on in years, and I know that these things happen when you get older, but it doesn’t make it any better. She’s got this lung condition, probably from all the chemicals she was around working in a beauty parlor for so many years, and then working in a JC Penny’s with a lot of asbestos. She called me, desperate to see me, so I went out there to see her with my dad and my sister, and we spent the afternoon with her on Sunday. She even went to the effort of making this huge lunch when she totally didn’t have to and I told her as much. She should be resting in her condition.
Regardless it was a nice afternoon, and my aunt and uncle stopped by with two of my cousins (the oldest of the three was in Oregon). So that was nice too.
I know this isn’t my typical post, but I just wanted you guys to know I’m aware I’ve been MIA, I’m catching up on all the things you’ve been writing too, and there should be something new in the next couple days.
Now I’ve got to get some sleep because I’m taking the truck to the Farmer’s Market in Santa Monica tomorrow and I’ve gotta go get the truck ready at 5:30, which means leaving this house at 5am, and it’s 12:30am right now. ::sigh::
On a lighter note, so I’m not totally bringing you down, I think the truck is being filmed for a TV show and I might be on it. But I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say much more, but I’ll keep you posted once I know something.
Goodnight for now.
