Recoup and Recover

I could certainly do with a few days to recoup and recover…  It’s been a crazy week, and I’m feeling completely worn out and exhausted.  But no.  That’s just not in the cards (not for a mom with a high need little girl, anyway).

To attempt a recap?  I’m not sure I could even do it.  But I’m hoping that I’ll be able to share a little more again as things settle down. For now though, I do hope you’ll forgive me.  Two boring blog posts in a row?  *slaps self on wrist*  BAD BLOGGER, BAD!  I’ve been punished, and hopefully tomorrow I’ll come through with shining colours.  Maybe then I’ll be able to actually share a tutorial or two for the fabulous gifts I helped the girlie to craft for her Dad and Pop Pop.  See you then!

Can you believe I’m still sick?

Seriously.  It’s been well over a week now.  I think it’s high time I started feeling better.  Jeepers.  😉  Of course, all of the excitement the last couple of days probably didn’t actually help me any.  While very cool, it was a far cry from the rest a person fighting off a virus should be getting.  LOL

So while I’m still stuck being sick, I can feel that I’m getting closer to the end of things.  My symptoms have changed.  They aren’t getting better, but they are different – so I know I’m moving through this bug, even if it’s slower than I’d like.  All the echinacea in the world isn’t speeding this one along any.

The biggest problem for me is honestly the exhaustion.  I can deal with the sore throat, the coughing, the runny nose…  the exhaustion is definitely the kicker.  I am just so beat.  Constantly.  And being constantly exhausted leads to bad blogging.  LMAO

Missing posts.

Boring posts.

Rambling non-sense-making posts.

Posts about how tired I am of being tired.

Posts about how sick I am of being sick.

Nothing anyone wants to read.

And for that?  You have my sympathy and apologies.  😉  I hope you can forgive muddled, fuddy, blurgering, sickly me.

A couple more days…

I just wanted to drop in and let you all know that things will return to normal in a couple more days.  Things have been rather crazy lately…  What else is new, right?  LOL

I have been taking a photo a day this whole time, but I’ll be honest… I likely won’t post them.  I know myself really well, and I know I’m not up for the work that would be involved in downloading, editing, uploading, and blogging about that many images.  If I were to wait until I could find the time to do it all in a sitting I likely wouldn’t return to the blog in any real way, and I would miss it – as I have been missing it.

The last while I’ve been staying at my parents place (my husband has been staying at home) as they are in Ontario visiting family.  Two of my siblings still live at home, and require a caregiver.  There are also two older gentlemen who call my parent’s house, home (both who have special needs).  So between caring for Lily-Ann AND an additional four individuals, I’m pretty busy.  LOL  By the time night rolls around, the bed in my parents room starts calling my name pretty loudly… it would seriously interrupt any train of thought I had whilst attempting a blog post.  Much as it’s doing right now.  The bed is definitely calling to me.


In a few more days I’ll be back home, and life should return to normal.  Which means I should be back at the daily blogging.  I really  have missed it, so it will definitely feel good to be posting on a regular basis again.

Take care everyone, and be good to one another.  🙂

my crazy, somewhat hectic, life

So, again it’s been several days since my last blog post.  I actually began writing one yesterday,  but after about ten paragraphs realized it wasn’t really going anywhere….  just a long vent.  LMAO  So I shelved it.  The fact of the matter is simple really.  Life has been somewhat hectic lately, and I’ve just been feeling overwhelmed and exhausted.  After the dog show this weekend it should calm down again.

I head out tomorrow for Swift Current.  The dog show is taking place at the fairgrounds there, so please feel free to come on out and have a look if you live in the area.  I’ll be showing a wonderful Chihuahua named Neddie.  He’s already earned his championship, but is now competing as a “special”.  You’ll know him when you see him…  he’s a lovely, stocky, tri-colour.  And he’s all boy.  LMAO  He’s a complete charmer, and is such a sweetie… a trait passed down to his pups.  Something I hope to see first hand this Summer when he is bred to my blue tri-colour female, Roo (Rooty Toot has made appearances here in the past).

Anyway…  I have continued taking a photograph every day, and will compile them all into a long blog post when I get back.  Promise.  🙂

Take care everyone, and be kind to one another.


I haven’t been an active blogger the last few days.  By the time night rolls around, and the wee girlie is asleep, I have been absolutely exhausted.  Lots going on.  I don’t have a photo for you just now… but did want to take a quick moment to post and to offer my apologies.  Life catches up sometimes and a ball inevitably gets dropped.  It just so happens that the particular ball that I end up dropping in life’s busy moments is my blog.  So… I do hope  you’ll forgive me.  And I do promise to get photographs posted for every day that I’ve missed.  As usual I’m still snapping a daily photograph, it’s just the posting of said photograph that ends up delayed.
