Little Woman Interrupted

This is a scholarly discourse on Pie and where the hell I've been.

I'm still alive and luxuriating from the intermission of blogging and everything else that doesn't absolutely require a piece of me. That doesn't include the husband or the three year old. They get theirs,
believe me...

I remember Me Time prior to being a Mom. It was called every-second-of-the-day and I took it for granted because the "Me Pie" was more than enough. There was also more money to play with as I recall, but I digress.

MMA was afraid you might think he did something sinister to prevent me from blogging this long and has beseeched me to resume, "the sooner the better," he said. With an overly needy child in command of the house (who somehow manages to stay up every night until just minutes before we collapse in bed) it seems my husband learns most of what he knows about my day the same way you do. And he misses my alter ego online.

Well, for nigh a month now (and can you tell I'm fresh off a corset book?) I've been too tired to do much more than throw an occasional load of clothes in the wash and cook a simple meal. I find myself moodier than ever and reclusive. I just want to sleep and watch
Dancing with the B-listers and reality show Stars and eat popcorn followed by a bowl of Blue Bell ice cream. (And shamefully, I've even been too tired for tricks and more than once paid full price when I knew a deal was within arms reach if I had, but a little more effort to put forth...) This is me, flailing. And hoarding my piece of the pie.

And watching my belly "bloom" (as my British friend puts it) and my face break out doesn't help me feel particularly outgoing. But OK, breaks over, I'm ready to shine again.

I will share my good news with you tomorrow...(feigned sigh) if I can manage the strength...

I will say this: sometimes its good to indulge one's self, but in general, with pie, sharing is better. And the more the merrier.

I wondered where you had gone...sorry to hear you've been in a funk, but looking forward to hearing your good news.

Did I somehow (a month ago or more?) miss an announcement about a belly about to be in bloom???? Point me in the direction where I've gone astray.....but if this is the case, and it is what I THINk it is...then your absence has just been explained. :)

I've been wondering about you! Glad your back. That's not a nice thing to do you know. Holding out on information that everyone would be so happy to hear, but I guess it can wait until tomorrow.

ok woman, near the end their you have me wondering if you are pregnant?

I was so happy to see you hit my reader today I clicked right away. I missed your witty posts and wondered about your little Bombaloo and hoped you'd be back someday soon and here you are!

I wish I had the energy to take a break...sounds backwords eh...I would be placed in an insane asylum if I didn't get what was in my brain out of my brain on a regular basis.

Maybe I should just check in anyway?

Glad to see you again!

Welcome back... I'm also wondering if you're pregnant... LOL

I've had a rough month too :(


Megan said...

Thanks goodness...your back! I was wondering where the heck you have been. Could this funk that you are in have anything to do with the belly in bloom? I'll be back tomorrow for more!

By the way, I am a huge DWTS fan!

Bonnie said...

I was happy to see you back. I'm glad everything is pretty much ok. I'm sorry you've been down.

I think sometimes we need those low points to recharge.

I will be waiting to here the news... :)
