And so I’m back…from outer space

super nova by the SmithsonianWhen you generally blog at least every-other day, not blogging for over a week seems like a really, really long time.
Remember this post?
This was the last post I wrote, except for yesterdays incoherent stream of consciousness post.
It was the beginning of what I call being sucked into a deep deep dark dark pit. A wormhole, if you will. Thanks to Fadra, for the clarification between wormhole and black hole, and how it relates to being a parent working in the home. I won’t even begin to describe it. Funny thing about it though, you don’t realize you are in it until you shoot out the other side.
I’ve been writing my butt off this morning. Little bits here and there. So I can give you a sneaky-peaky at the posts for this week.
Tomorrow I will resume the Crazy Eyeris series. I got my skates yesterday! I wore them around the house. In fact, I’m wearing them now. My butt muscles hurt, but it’s a good kind of hurt.
Wednesday I will give you 101 things I want to do this year. Thanks Emily! It’s really given me something to think about, and I’m somehow going to tie it in to the twelve goals in twelve months idea, from Midlife Mixtape.
Thursday I will tell you who I am pretend inviting to my fake birthday dinner in March. It’s going to be extra special!
Friday I will unveil my picks for the Versatile blogger award. Something I have been giving a great deal of thought to. I’m very pleased with my list.
So today I’m catching up. I’ve almost up on my blog reading. I’ve made dinner and bread. Both of the kids are fed (twice even!) and clothed. The house is clean. Laundry is in process and WILL be finished AND put away. I worked out. I’m in my skates. I’ve worked, and caught up on some projects in desperate need of attention. I’ve planned the rest of the week. I’m pretty stoked you guys! I think I might even read a magazine and make cookies with Ben. Mom fail – Ben missed the bus. Mental health day, I guess.
When do I get one of those? Someday when I go back to outer space, I guess. In the meantime, and probably for a short time, I’m organized and I’m motivated. Bring it, universe!
Have you ever been stuck in a wormhole?

  1. I don’t know if I’ve been stuck in a wormhole? I guess a black hole is inescapable, right? A wormhole is something you travel through and emerge somewhere else? Or…am I just taping into some silly Star-Trek mumbo-jumbo? I guess I could identify with the latter, seeing as how I usually come out of my muddied places eventually, sometimes for the better even! I’m in an in-between place now, which you’ll be able to gather from my blog post today. I can’t wait for your week full of posts!!!

  2. I wanna be invited to the fake birthday party! And we can celebrate the completion of Goals 1, 2, and 3 if you do it in March…

  3. Worm holes, black holes, yes, yes, yes. Especially in January and February. Ugh. Apparently your visits to outer space are 1,000 times more productive than mine! Send me a map– I want to go to planet Productive! :)

  4. YAY! Skates!!!

    I listened to a couple of your podcasts. Are you going to add recording podcasts to your list? :)

  5. Even though I’ve decided to no longer post on the weekend, I still feel the pull it’s become a part of me, I think maybe just one little picture…no…break on the weekend to accomplish other things.

    Can’t wait to see your 101 things. Btw, I’m no addicted to podcasts, listen to them in my car all the time during my commute.

    • It’s SO HARD not to work on the weekends! Ugh, I always seem to work a little bit.
      Have you listened to my podcast? Kate and Laine’s Ultimate Podcast? We need to get it on iTunes. Oh, and start podcasting again!

  6. Oh- I love cosmology- and blogging- and being a mom. This post is to my heart. But, I thought Hawking indicated it would be physically impossible to emerge from the worm hole or black hole because the density is unimaginably crushing. Anyway- glad you defied the odds and re-entered one of the 11 dimensions. :)
