Life lately: Where I've been edition

It's been a long month, friends.  A long, long month.

Things big and small that have been happening 'round these parts, the most all-consuming of which were:
(1) HP sprouted all four of his canine teeth.  I know that is interesting news to no one but me.  But I do not care.  These teeth have been the bane of my existence for the last four weeks.  Sleep has been horrendous.  HP was waking up at least three and sometimes as many as half a dozen times a night.  Not okay.  Then last night, the first night as a sixteen-toothed baby, he slept for eleven hours straight.  I was so estatic when I woke up at 4:30 and realized we hadn't heard a peep from him that I could not fall back asleep.  Fingers crossed it wasn't a fluke.  And yes, the fact that my child got four new teeth gets first billing in our household.
(2) We did not have a functioning shower from Oct 12th to Nov 17th.  I could write more about this, but I think it's obvious--having a shower is great, not having a shower was not.
There's more (isn't there always more?), but those two items paint the picture.

The thought of coming here and writing occurred to me many times over the past month, but it just felt like too much.  Any free moment I had was dedicated to sleeping, mindlessly surfing the internet, reading, and streaming mediocre television shows--not necessarily in that order.  But now I'm back.

I've missed this space.

    1. And I've been thinking about how awesome your quilts are. The t-shirt one? Amazing. (And I've been thinking about you too, of course!)

  4. Welcome back!
    When I'm just not feeling it, I can't blog either. I just remind myself that it's supposed to be fun, and if I'm not in a place where I can have fun with it, then I just can't write.
