A snapshot of life, or, why I haven't been writing about what's been going on lately.

Frankly, I've just been too tired. Not so much physically tired, though that has been creeping up on me over the past day or two, but a sort or weariness that has settled into my bones and is slowly but surely slowing me down. I've been doing a lot of running around lately and that hasn't been helping - we've got family coming into town for Easter this weekend, so Lyssa and I have been running around getting some last minute stuff to make dinner on Sunday, like a new cutting board (our old one broke a couple of weeks back but was still more or less servicable for everyday stuff, like making lunch). Earlier this week, the couch that we'd ordered last weekend was delivered, so instead of a papasan chair that is a threat to the life and limb of anyone sitting in it, we've got an L-shaped couch that's really helped shape up the living room. The thing is, we've been too busy to actually sit down and enjoy it. We've also been running around getting stuff for a baby shower being held for one of Lyssa's cow-orkers, a task that's taken two days due to last-minute returns. It's been a lot of little things that have been adding up and adding up and I've just been in a cranky mood most nights. We've been doing a lot of eating out, something that I very much dislike regardless of the circumstances surrounding it (vis a vis, shopping and getting things accomplished). The change in diet doesn't help my sense of well-being, either; my body's always been sensitive to changes in chemistry.

On top of all of that, I haven't had the time to work on any of the projects I've got on the sidelines, which always throws me off my game. Sure, it's purely selfish, but it's nice to be able to sit and relax while working on something completely related to everything else that's going on.

Everything's added up to not having the wherewithal to write about any of the stuff that's been happening outside of work, like hanging out with Hasufin, our weekly Dresden Files nights, or getting my taxes done earlier this week and owing taxes across the board, or anything like that.
