At the moment I don't have time to blog, and what time I spend online I try to read a few of you. But I know I'm missing some, and I'm no longer the "comment whore" I used to be. I always felt guilty when I visited someone's journal, back in the JS days, and didn't at least say hi.... it was like visiting someone and not bringing a small token along (it's traditional in Germany that, when visiting non-family members, you bring flowers for the hostess and a bottle of wine for the host).
But my busy schedule has received a few new "jobs". I'm not even sure now what I've already written.
On Friday, a holiday, I will stop by my daughter's new apartment to help her paint the walls. Yep, I haven't mentioned it openly here because too many family read here, but she is moving out with the kids, leaving her husband. So on top of some what I've already been writing, there has been this emotional strain going on. She knows she has my support, and I'll help her where I can.
This coming Sunday is Priyasha's baptism. My ex-mother-in-law wants to attend but needs someone to pick her up. So, on Friday afternoon I'll drive the 3.5 hours to her home, spend the night there, then drive with her back here on Saturday. Yes, I get along with my ex-MIL.... and I'm the one person in this family who is considered the best driver... even on the German autobahns!
She will then spend the night at my place until Monday. I finally got the closet all set up, with Wheelie's help, but it's not completely filled the way I want it.... I had to improvise until I got a couple of new boards for shelves. Those boards are now sitting here, unpacked.
I picked them up on Monday, after babysitting Shiana and Priyasha, but started to develope a bad cold or whatever. My temp went up to about 102°F and I spent the rest of Monday, and most of Tuesday (temp was back to normal, but I needed to regenerate), in bed. My apartment is a mess and no time to clean it! Today I did go back to work because a VERY important meeting was taking place. Then tonight dance classe, tomorrow telephone duty, then the other dance class... then..see above.
So, I am kind of burned out at the moment. I am losing interest in blogging, in reading some blogs, in the internet, in everything. No word yet on the new job, and my present one is still frustrating (the meeting today proved again how right I was about some things, but do you think anyone realises it? nooooo).
Anyway, don't expect me around as much. Maybe after the baptism I'll have some more kiddy pictures to share. I do still have some new Germany photos I have wanted to share, but just haven't gotten to it.
And the JS t-shirt will finally get sent off this weekend.... I HOPE!
