Oh, hi there blog! Wow, where have I been?

Oh yeah, on vacation, and then at work, and then it's been a weird weekend, and here we are and it's Monday and I'm totally out of the loop.

Friday was weird. I woke up with giant puffy, swollen eyes. I have never in my life had eyes that swollen -- I couldn't even see to drive. I was a little freaked out. In retrospect, it's probably not that big of a deal, but at the time, I could not imagine what had happened and I was a little (a little?) anxious about it. After a few hours I realized that I had tried a new eye makeup color the previous day, as well as had two immunizations in the last two weeks, so my body just freaked out a little. I've never had any sensitivity to eye makeup before, so hopefully it's just the grand confluence of immunizations, a new color, oh and getting my period as well. I would be very sad to have to completely start over with hypoallergenic eyemakeup, or egads, no makeup at all!! Noooo! I will wait another week before trying anything, just to be safe.

We did get a good space heater, and put it in the kitchen. Although it takes a little bit of time to warm it up, it's nice to have the kitchen brought up to a decent temperature, you know, like 60. I'm waiting for the temp to reach 65 -- won't that be a grand day? It doesn't exactly warm up the rest of the house, but it's nice to not freeze when you need to get a snack. If we are still here next year, I think we're going to invest in an Eden heater.

On that note, went to a first-time homebuyer's seminar on Saturday. Very, very encouraging and inspiring. We're going to move forward with getting all of our ducks in a row, knowing that we'd like to buy this fall (for a number of reasons) but wanting to get the process started now. I feel like we have a very short window of opportunity here in the Bay Area and I don't want to lose it. So that was exciting.

However most of the last few days have been extremely foggy (in my head). I was already tired from my trip, and then having the allergy reaction (and all the subsequent antihistamines, which I am very sensitive to) tired me out, and then I got my period, and basically I have no idea of anything going on around me at all. What? We need groceries? What? I should do some laundry? What? I was supposed to meet a friend for a walk this morning and completely slept through it?

Sigh. Some days (weeks?) are like that.

I have two books which I hope to finish today and tomorrow, so book reviews coming soon, but mostly I've been completely out of it. I hope to wake up this week! How are you all?

Welcome back to blogland! I hope your de-fogging. Some days, weeks, months are like that. I think yesterday that I went through a red light. I'm not sure....But after the fact, I looked behind me and all the other cars were stopped. I really need to get out of my haze (mostly, it's having too many thoughts, too many projects and just too much going on). But, it's kind of scary.

It's kind of bad. I'm having trouble getting anything done. I'm going into 'keeping head above water' mode... seriously, I can't seem to figure out how to get moving. I'm blaming all my health stuff, also being cold for three months.
