Yeah... I know, I know

I've been slack lately.
Well, not exactly "slack", because I've been working my arse off... but I sure as heck haven't been posting anything lately, have I?

And I haven't been reading blogs either - which to tell you the truth has made me kind of sad.
Well, the whole not posting and missing out on what y'all have had to say has been pulling at me, and making my heart hurt, but I just haven't had the time.

We've had school holidays going on here, and the house has been packed to the rafters, my patience has been getting a workout, the house is a mess, the dishes are piled up, I desperately need a hair cut, and it seems like I haven't had a single moment to myself in weeks now.
Well, that's probably because I haven't had a single moment to myself in weeks.

Between 6am starts and 7:30pm finishes, as well as having my young lad staying with me, I've had kids underfoot for nigh onto 2+ weeks now.
And as much as I love the little boogers, and I know that I'm blessed to do what I do for a living, I've come to the conclusion that children are highly over-rated.
They take up all your time and never leave you a moment to just sit and breathe.

So... after finishing work yesterday - knowing that I now have 2 lovely days off - I actually rang the old guy and asked him not to come around.
Just so that I could sit and savor the silence.

Which I did.
Because he talks too much.

So, I just sat in my chair like a big ol' lump, breathed deeply, and just thought 'thoughts'.
Like what to have for dinner, since I didn't need to consider anyone but myself for a change.
(Dinner ended up being Cobb salad, made with my very own home-grown stuff.
Well, mostly anyway.)

Aren't these tiny little 'maters just about the purtiest things you ever did see? I thought for a while there, that with the extreme heat we had earlier in the week, that I may have lost my cute little Tomato Berries (they wilt easily) but with plenty of water and a cooler place to sit, they came right back.
(not my photo, because my camera batteries are flat and I can't find the dang re-charger)

The other tomatoes are doing good as well, and I've picked a few of them too, in the last few days. There is absolutely NO comparison taste-wise when it comes to store bought and home grown! The basil and oregano is doing well, as are the cukes and corn and all sorts of peppers, but the chives are the only thing breaking my heart this year.

You know... it just dawned on me.... I said earlier that I have 2 whole days off, but I just remembered that I actually have Monday off as well. (remind me to ring my day care parents and tell 'em - because I forgot to!)

I've got an appointment for a root canal on Monday, for this stinkin' tooth that's been giving me hell for the last month. So I'll actually have THREE whole days off!

I don't know what I'm gonna do with myself. No...wait! I DO know what I'm going to do with myself! I'll probably catch up on the housework, (ugh) catch up on some lovely Nana naps... and hopefully get some blog reading in.

I've missed you all... something fierce!
