I am so exhausted.
I hadn't realized until last night that I haven't updated in actual WEEKS. That wasn't supposed to happen! Life is a little sneaky that way sometimes. I have just been going going going non-stop for weeks on end and I really hadn't even thought about how long it had been since I'd written anything.
I'm doing what I can to get back on track, but you'll have to forgive me if posting is a little slow for a bit longer. I have been: training for a half marathon (it's in two weeks!), trying to make it through the last month of school this quarter, still getting into the swing of my new job, fighting one crazy mess of a head cold, celebrating lots of birthdays and baking lots of cakes and pies, hanging out with my mom for the past week eating lots of good food and drinking plenty of wine to go with it. I haven't had time to do laundry, cook, or really even sit down and breathe. I am completely tuckered out.
I took this picture of myself + cat a few weeks ago to include in a silly e-mail to Brittany. I feel like it perfectly sums up the way I feel right now. Notice the dying plant in the background. It's dead now. I killed it by not blogging.
I need a mini-vacation. But even that sounds like too much work right now. Maybe I just need a nap and a bath. Please send reinforcements in the form of tea and fleece socks.
