seriously, it’s ridiculous! I spend 2-3hours in bed with Lauren while she has her afternoon nap, and yet I’m still exhausted by this time of night, and often head off to bed at 830. Growing a baby is tiring, invisible work, and sometimes the invisible work is the hardest because no-one can see it happening.
I’m making very little progress with anything right now, though I’m really enjoy reading a lot, it’s great to be able to have that break from the computer and writing even – I just have to keep in mind that there will be a time for it again soon, just not right now. I know better than to force my story when my brain simply doesn’t have the fuel to make it shine.
We’ve fallen into this nice afternoon routine of sleeping/reading/resting, and then heading out into the garden for a half hour or so before going to pick Ivy up early from daycare. I like it, and slowly, the garden is improving, though it’s going to take probably another several years to get it all in order. So much chaos.
Anyways, I keep forgetting to mention the searchterm challenge results, you can find them here. I thoroughly encourage you to read Merrilee’s story, I had a feeling from the moment I read it (and it was only the second one up) that it would be the winner. They were all good stories though and I enjoyed reading them.
I got last equal 😉 lol but oh well, it was a fun way to kill some time and I enjoyed tapping into Jessica. She is a character that’s been sitting around for awhile now and will one day get her turn to have her novel written, in the meantime she got to come out and play for a bit and that was cool. It’s the 5th entry, I will put it up in the story section at some point, when I have some more energy 😉
