Note to Readers

My resolve to keep my blog up to date is having varied results.

Until I get my act together, I'll continue to post mundane details of my life (and Doctor Who retweets) on twitter at @cozmicrain, and quick snippets of thought (and reblogs of cats in tights) on tumblr at Casual Bubbles.

Tell Me Thursday (even though it's barely still Thursday)

The innovative lady over at New Mommy Confessions has started something she calls "Tell Me Thursday." It's a way for bloggers to share a little bit about themselves every week. And after missing last week's, I told myself I would make sure to get it done this week. Apparently, I forgot to check the calendar before I made plans to be a better blogger this week (also should have checked before choosing new, more time intensive recipes to make for dinner). I'm gonna rant here about my busy week so if you're just looking for the Tell Me Thursday, jump down a paragraph or two.

I haven't had a week this busy is quite some time and though a week like this might have seemed slow to me back before becoming a stay at home mom, I'm pretty exhausted (I'll let the pregnancy take some of the blame too). I had a visit with the in-laws and a dentist appointment on Monday. I took Jake with so he can could see what they do since he's up for his first visit in June. Tuesday was quiet. I mostly worked on cleaning up around the house at a sloth-like speed since it hurts to move around much. Wednesday I had my first physical therapy appointment (she confirmed the problem is SPD) followed by my 20 week ultrasound. Baby looks healthy (another boy!) and we got to see the little munchkin bopping around a bit. Today Jake had his play class and then we rushed off to the OB for my monthly check up. And tomorrow I've got to drag myself out of bed to take Penny (our dog) to the vet. There's a story there but I'll save it for another post.

And now my body is telling me it's time for bed but I told myself I was going to do this and, dang it, I'm going to get it done! Sorry if I ramble and I probably won't edit this post very thoroughly so I'm sorry for that too.

Tell Me Thursday

  • Do you have specific bloggers you follow? - I have a few friends with blogs but they're as bad as I am (worse even) at keeping up with them. But I'll admit, when my friend Jessi was living halfway around the world for three years, this is how I kept up with her. Other than that, I'm still pretty new to discovering awesome blogs. A few months back I discovered The Bloggess and while I'm still catching up on past posts, I do keep up with all the new ones. I check in on Wil Wheaton and Joe Hill from time to time and I just discovered New Mommy Confessions (creator of the Tell Me Thursday questions).

  • What is your least favorite part of blogging? - Mostly, keeping up with it. As I recently posted, I write a lot of blogs in my head and they all add up and I get overwhelmed thinking of all the posts I could be writing and then end up with a list of ideas that goes stale. Also, hoping I'm actually writing things people want to read. I'm still a work in progress on that front. I talk a lot. People in my life sometimes tell me I can take 20 minutes to tell a 3 minute story. I'm awesome at setting the stage and giving details though (teachers loved my descriptive writing assignments). So hopefully, I edit a little better here.

  • Does your blog have a focus? - I once started a blog for family and friends that was a day to day account of Jake. It had daily pics and updates of anything new and cute he was doing. I've also toyed with a blog about mommyhood or one about TV shows I watch or books I read, etc. But really, my life doesn't have one focus so I figure it makes more sense that my blog wouldn't either.

  • What is your latest project? - I constantly have different crafty things I want to try. The latest has been yarn-related crafts. I tried knitting and crocheting and then discovered Tunisian Crochet and got stuck on that. I started a scarf for myself before Christmas and my son wanted one too so I took him to pick out yarn and I did start it but it still has a ways to go.

  • And just because : Favorite TV show? - Honestly, I'm not sure I have a favorite but the shows I watch on a weekly basis are General Hospital (ok, that's daily), House, Bones, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, and Fringe. And I just caught up on Drop Dead Diva. Netflix has introduced me to Dr. Who so I've been working my way through that too.

    Update: How did I forget Castle? I love Castle!

    1. I saw you liked Bones too and was all "Yay, another Bones person, that's cool."

      Then I saw you are starting to watch Doctor Who as well. Now we Must.Be.Friends. lol

      I just got into it myself. Huzzy was stuck working New Year's, so after putting Baby Girl down for the night I sat there and started soaking in Doctor Who. Much <3

      Thanks for joining in this week! Hope to see you next week as well. Also... Yay preggers! Grats on the soon-to-be baby boy!
