Word-filled Wednesday

Oh how I’ve missed WordPress!

I know, I know, I’ve been away for quite a while.  But I have good reasons!

You see, there’s the fact that I started a new job in January.  This means that I’m now working Monday to Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.  Oy!  What got into me?

No but seriously, it’s not that bad.  I’m kinda getting the hang of things now even though I regularly misplace my brain these days…

Then, well, there’s the fact that Little Dude was rather clingy in an I-just-want-to-be-in-mommy’s-arms-all-the-time-otherwise-I’ll-scream-and-cry-and-throw-a-tantrum kind of way for the first three weeks of January.  Of course, I could blame teething for it because he *was* teething again after all (good thing his teeth are almost all in!), but I think it’s something else.

You see, I think that this is the cause:

Yes! It’s a picture of a LEGO creation I pulled together!

I’ll give you a moment or two to connect the mental dots (assuming you haven’t already done so).

One moment…

Two moments…

Yeah, baby #2 is on the way!

So, how has this been affecting my son?  Well, since nausea decided to grab hold of me earlier this time ’round (yay?), I haven’t been physically able to hold my son as much.  And well, since it seems to be human nature to want what we can’t have (speaking of, is anyone willing to go sushi-free as moral support until I give birth?), my son has been wanting to be held a lot!

So yeah, reason #3 for being a WordPress ghost for the past few weeks: headaches, extreme fatigue, 1st trimester insomnia and nausea.  I’m usually in bed by 7:15 these days (when I’m not working).  But things are getting better (fatigue and headache-wise anyways).

Oh, I missed you guys!

Ten Thought Tuesday the Back to Work Edition


  1. Well, I’ve officially been back to work for a week now (since Christmas holidays) and I am only just starting to get into a rhythm again.
  2. I’ve also started my new job which means that I am back to working full-time since giving birth.
  3. The weather has been all over the place this winter.  So far, we’ve had everything from massive snowfalls to temps dropping below 40 C to rain.
  4. The little guy has been doing really well and has become so confident with his skills that he now runs.
  5. He has come down with a cold though, so we’ve been dealing with a runny/stuffy nose.
  6. I can’t believe we’re already in January.  Where have the past few months gone?
  7. I read a super informative (and somewhat scary) blog post on photo copyrights this week.  I would urge all of my American bloggy friends to read it.  You can find it here.
  8. Watched Man of Steel over the holidays.  I really liked it.
  9. Wow, my brain’s really slow today, I’m having trouble coming up with ten random thoughts!  Of course, they’ll all pop through once I’ve pressed on the “publish” button.
  10. The little guy just spent two full days/nights at his grandparents’ because my partner and I had some problems arranging our work schedules.  I can’t wait to hold him in my arms, but I’ll surely have to wait until tomorrow morning because I’m working tonight :(.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
