Empty Promises

Remember all my promises of blog posts, comments, etc once life calms down a bit?


Life hasn’t calmed down yet. (Empty Promises…)


Yesterday was the first weekend day I spent at home in three weeks. Yup, three weeks. I did stay home from work on Tuesday but I felt like death so that doesn’t count since I mainly slept. Thought I had an ear infection but the doctor says its TMJ pain so I’m ordered to chill out and keep my mouth shut basically. Go figure!


So needless to say yesterday was spent doing chores, then some more chores and then the glory of grocery shopping. Which I despise. Mainly because I hate how expensive it is to eat healthy. I meal plan and don’t pick up very many extras so the huge tab at the end of the trip really bites.


In between all that I was plucking Jellybean off the fireplace. Off the dining room chairs. Off toys he pushed over by the pantry and was balancing on while trying to get a cookie. Putting him in time out when he kept trying to get in the freezer to steal another ice pop. Yes, that’s my 18 month old. Who is way too smart for his own good.


I’m reading your blogs in Google Reader and occasionally even have a spare moment to comment on them.


What I don’t have? The time, energy or inspiration at the end of the day to say something witty here.


I have yet to upload pictures from all of our various adventures this summer. I have even failed to take pictures at a few of them. My goal has been to stay on top of things at home so I don’t feel quite so overwhelmed. I am being successful at that but sadly it comes at the expense of this blog. Once it’s back to just the three of us at home I will probably find time to visit here more often but until then you’ll get these sporadic posts from me.


Hopefully I’ll be back in the swing of things by August and annoying you with countless Jellybean stories. (Remind me to tell you about the pen in the AC when I get a chance!)


For now, so I don’t feel like a complete slacker – here’s my meal plan for this week!

Don't worry about it. I know how crazy it gets. You have one smart little guy on your hands.

It still amazes me how much my TMJ can irritate my mind and body. It seems so infinitesimal, but it reaches every fiber.
