Once again, lost to the world of blogging. I’m tentatively considering an indefinite hiatus, but the thought of completely giving up on the site has me a little trembly, so who knows, I’ll probably wind up keeping it around for random posts once a month or so. Then again, I may change my mind and start posting every day again. Not that I’ve done that for years.
I think I’m just feeling a little under the weather lately and that’s my whole problem. I am going back to work next month and since I hated my job before I left to go on maternity leave… I’m really dreading returning to it. I’m hating hating hating the fact that I have to go back to work at all, but our financial situation is dire and makes the paycheck necessary – even if half of it will be going to daycare once my free childcare (aka Grandma) ends in September. Daycare. Gah. That word makes me angry. I hate the idea of daycare. I hate the idea of dropping my kid off to be taken care of by a virtual stranger five days a week. Hate hate hate. I’m really really bitter about this, but I don’t think that I have any other options. It’s killing me, people.
I’ve also completely lost myself to the World of Warcraft. Yup, that’s right. You can officially call me a gaming nerd now. I can’t help it. I start playing and before I know it, hours have passed. It’s SO much fun, though. If you play, you should leave your realm and character name in the comments. I’ll look you up. I have four toons already – what’s a few more?
I was really really getting stoked for a trip to New Mexico in October to go visit the hot air balloon festival, but, bummer bummer bummer, with our financial situation being as it is (read: dire) that trip is going by the wayside, I think. I’m still trying to find a way to make it happen, but… I just don’t think it’s going to work. Same with a trip I was hoping to make to Mexico (you know, to do vacation right sans child), but again… I think making the bills is a bit more important than a few piddly vacations. As much as it pains me.
So that’s my life in a nutshell these days. Baby, Warcraft, financial ruin and cancelled vacation plans. What’s up with all of y’all?
