Work is kicking my arse and unfortunately my blog has taken a backseat. Have I ever mentioned that Mr. FC and I also have a small consulting business we operate during any free chance we get? While we're thrilled it's booming especially in this economy, between it and my day job, I'm just trying to keep my head above water.
There are a lot of projects on the home front, but they're mostly exterior stuff. Which, quite honestly, I have little interest in. That's more Mr. FC's territory. We are getting new windows installed, the rotting trim replaced and the whole darn facade's finally getting painted. We've also chopped down a tree and are replacing the front gate. The exterior of our house has been frightening for a while now. Last year, we bought 2 ginormous bags of candy for Halloween but none of the kiddos stopped at our house. I'm pretty sure it was because our house looks haunted. Which you'd think would be tempting, being Halloween and all.
You know what eles is scary? My social calendar is currently packed (weddings, hosting 2 showers, birthdays, reunions, visitors, oh my) which is making me suspicious as I'm a self-declared homebody. This might have to do with this one time a couple of weeks ago when I met some friends for Happy Hour............and that's all I can remember, but I must have been entertaining. If you were there and know what I did, I'd appreciate a recap. Or at least send me the keywords so I can search for the video on YouTube. Awesome.
All jokes aside, I've been snagging about 4 hrs of sleep a night for the past few months, and I have a mug of coffee perma-glued to my hand (Yeesh, and I wonder how I will ever manage little kiddos when the time comes!). I haven't been able to read your blogs on a regular basis which makes me sad. My blog has been neglected which makes me sheepish. There have been times where the thought has crossed my mind to "retire" my blog, but I'd miss you all too much so perish the thought. I think I'm just suffering from blog fatigue. Do you ever experience that?
So there's the update on me. I know, cry me a river, right? Thanks for letting a tired FC ramble.
You all are more compassionate listeners than some of my real life friends, LOL.
I hope to be back soon with somewhat interesting posts, projects, and random musings.
Ugh!! I just re-read this post and am I a whiny little blogger or what?! There are people out there with much bigger issues than my measly ones. Sorry about that. Thanks for your kind words of support; you all are the best. =]
