Time Stretch

This week has gone slower than the week before and the week before and the week before and the week before. It’s just perspective, but even so, it’s as real and anything can get. A new year dawned 6 days ago. Christmas even longer ago. Getting to each event was fast. Now with this one…

Allergies and house stuff

Goo … I feel miserable. My “normal” allergies have just been la, la, la all along this Spring, until about a week ago. They ramped up, but even moreso this week. So here I am, 36+3 (wks+days) pregnant and it’s hard enough to get the energy I need to do stuff … forget it now.…

Christmas is coming

It’s Monday, December 18th. Just a week until Christmas Day. We finally got our Christmas tree on Saturday night. It’s in the house set up, but I haven’t the lights to put on it. They are “somewhere” and hubby isn’t here to fetch them out for me. I used to love decorating trees for Christmas…
