It was pointed out to me the other day that when I disappear from the blog for any amount of time it means I'm getting caught up in the more unsavory aspects of life. This much is true- when faced with an overflow of problems, I invariably withdraw into myself and avoid people at all costs. And it has been that sort of month. Please don't get me wrong. An overflow of problems is relative, assuredly, but lately I find that I'm not able to cope as well as I have in the past. Something relatively minor can throw me into a tailspin that will keep me up at night, edgy all day, and just miserable to be around.
The job hunt is producing few results currently, which bothers me probably more than it should. We're managing, but I am an inveterate worrier and that black, looming pit of debt scares me witless. *sigh*
The baby is a joy as always, though, and she helps me get through the day. Her vocabulary has expanded to the point where I can't keep track of it, and she is able to communicate her wants in as articulate a manner as one could ask for. Unfortunately, her biggest want currently is for a furry housepet. *smiles* I guess she does take after her mummy in certain regards. She will climb in my lap while I'm working at the desk and ask for kitties until I open up I Can Has Cheezburger, whereupon she squeals and giggles and points out all the kitties who are "sleeping" (eyes shut).
I'm going to light some incense and listen to Cake for a bit, and once Mooch wakes from her nap we're off to the grocery store. Any suggestions for two person meals?
