Three Years

[Yikes...I initially titled this post just "Three", and then realized that could have a whole other meaning!!!]

Today is my three year blog-iversary...and as much as I would like to talk about how much things have changed over those three years, they are gonna change by a whole lot more next year!

I find less and less time to blog recently, as school is really kicking my ass these days and I am still sick kind of all the time. Most days, I wake up feeling pretty squeamish (although I don't really throw up very often) and it takes me a while to get ready because I can't be rushing around without getting sicker. I try to take as little Zofran as possible, but I would say that about one out of three days I have to because I am just too sick.

Eating is a pain in the ass, too, and I can't wait until food tastes good again. I have to eat kind of all the time, because I get really sick if I don't, but nothing actually tastes good, and I find myself eating whatever doesn't repulse me. Except animal crackers...I totally heart those. And I eat a whole lot of them...

So, I get to school at 8:00, have class all morning and early afternoon, then start in on the mountains of homework and group work and whatever else is on the docket that day. I get as much of it done as I can, but by about 6:00, I just plain have to go home. I usually feel worst in the evening, but The Boy and Munchkin are very good about taking care of me:-). Once I have had dinner and get into my jammies, I try and finish whatever work I have left, and I am usually in bed by 9:00 or so.

The fatigue hasn't been as bad lately...I have a little bit more energy...and it should get better for a while before it gets a whole lot worse after the New Year. But for now I am dealing. Unfortunately, it leaves very little time to do much else...I haven't seen many friends lately, and haven't been blogging (in case you didn't notice).

So...what am I getting at? Well, I guess I am apologizing ahead of time for a continued slow down in blogging. For the first six months or so of my blogging, I posted every day...and since then, I have been a pretty consistent five-day per week blogger. That has slowed down, and I don't anticipate that it will pick up any time soon. But, there is no need to worry about me...I am fine, just super busy and sleeping whenever I have some free time:-)

I need to make an effort to blog more, which I very much want to do. As I have mentioned, the part of this that I like most is the daily diary aspect...which is obviously reliant on actually doing it;-). I could blog during class, but that kind of defeats the purpose (not that I am unwilling...), so mostly I am just hoping that I will get over the fatigue for a while and have some more time to get everything done that we need to.

I guess, in summary, I have to recognize that the last three years are likely to be the high-point of my blogging. I still read everyone that is in my Reader (even if I don't comment as much) and will be a regular blogger...just maybe not as much as I once was. Which sort of makes me sad...but that's the way the cookie crumbles, for now.

I wish you could take the lazy way out and just post pictures. That way we could see your beautiful wedding and soon-to-come babies!

I, for one, miss your daily posts, but you're so right. . . .it's just the way life is sometimes. So glad to hear from you when you can update us, though! Hang in there and be sweet to yourself!!

Jane beat me to the pictures comment! I was going to say that if you posted some pics of the wedding, heads cut off if necessary, all would be forgiven...;) Heck, who am I kidding, we all love you anyway.

There is no shame in taking the Zofran, I promise. I can't even make it out of the house for work in the morning let alone through an entire work day without it. It's still hard AFTER that.

Miss the regular blogging, but I do totally understand, and I hope you'll continue to post as you have time!

Ahh pictures...yea...

Mo - It is not shame, it is the other side effects that get me;-)

Mo said...

Ah yes that IS a good reason. I haven't had problems with the other stuff so I forget.

I started blogging in 2002 (although, to the best of my knowledge, I have since deleted those angst ridden posts). In that time, almost all of the blogs I initially linked to have since been terminated. So that you have managed to blog regularly for three years is something you should definitely be proud of.

I have found that the more pressure I feel to blog, the less I actually want to do it. So do not stress yourself out trying to make a quota.

Dude! As someone who has turned into a blogger that could be called 'sporadic' at best- I know how it feels to see your blog or writing change, or the amount of time spent on it lessen. I've been coming to terms with this myself- I'm still reading as often as I can but there's just not as much time to comment, and truthfully there's more things going on that I'd rather not blog about.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone with any of this- I can relate. Thinking of you!
