I know you must be wondering Where is Winnie lately?!?!, so this is just a quick post to tell you that all is not well in the Winnitude world.
Firstly, my bodyclock is all out of whack. I usually get like this during the change of seasons. It seems that my body adjusts to daylight savings time about a month before it's actually applied - so for about a month, my body is totally confused and completely stuffed. One more week to go. I think we change to daylight savings time next weekend. Yay. The other reason my body clock is out of whack is due to the fact that I've somehow developed an awful habit of getting home after work, having dinner, falling asleep in the recliner (usually with a dog on my lap. Or two.), waking up at midnight and freaking out 'cause I've done nothing all night but sleep. Then by the time I've fluffed around, it's 2am and I'm trying to shut my mind down and go to sleep. Only to have to wake up again at 5am to get ready to go to work and the routine starts all over again. On the days I don't work, I'm so knackered that I end up sleeping all day, and then wondering where all the time has gone and why I haven't accomplished anything. Sigh. This September seems to have been a wasted month with very little accomplished.
The second reason I haven't been around is that I've been struggling with a stomach virus for all of last week. I get bad bacteria in my stomach from time to time, but it normally doesn't last 6 days. I don't like doctors, so I didn't go to see one until Saturday when I couldn't stand going to the toilet every 2 hours any longer. The doctor gave me FOUR GIGANTIC tablets to take ALL AT ONCE!!!!! Well, all at once meaning to take them at the one time, not literally all at once. I think I would have choked. Or suffocated. Or both. By Sunday morning I was feeling okay and could actually eat something without it coming out the other end (sorry, I know that's a bit too much information, but I'm just presenting facts!). Good thing too as I went to see Wicked and had to sit for three hours!
(Oh, and Wicked was ABSOLUTELY FANTABULISTICALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More on that at a later date.)
The third reason I haven't been around is because of various events I've had to attend. It's Spring. There is an event or function that I *have* to attend almost every weekend. I hate having to travel all the way to Sydney events, although they are enjoyable once I get there, but the travelling really tires me out. The local events are the best. So close, so different, so enjoyable. :D There's still lots to do!
Finally, the fourth reason why I haven't been around is because I've had to stay off the internet due to the fact that I've pretty much maxed out our broadband limit this month. I've been downloading digital crafting goodies like there's no tomorrow, forgetting that I'm not in the city anymore and as such, do not have access to any *affordable* unlimited broadband plans. Bu**er. Only a few more days until the limit is reset and I'll be back to haunt you. Bwahahahahaha!
(Yes, the lack of sleep has completely fried my brain. Completely.)
Oh, and sorry for the not-so-quick-post. You know how I like to ramble. LOL
