Too tired to blog

.
I'm bailing on most of my normal weekly posts this week. Between a probable broken arm (Itai's. Again. Playing soccer. Again. It's in a cast but it might be just a bad sprain, we go to the orthopedist on Sunday and if there's still no sign of a break the cast can come off.), a flooded bathroom (the hot water hose to the sink self-destructed, leaving a very soggy mess in its wake. I was able to get a plumber quickly and it's fixed now, but ugh.), the ups and downs of joblessness and potential freelance-hood (I think I've got my first project lined up, but it's not a done deal yet), a friend's very bad (and then somewhat less bad) news and the general craziness that is the life of a mom whose kids end their school year in just two weeks (with a plethora of end of the year and graduation activities) I am just plain wiped out. I'm here, I'm reading, I'm just feeling stretched too thin to be very creative. Nothing's particularly wrong, I'm just exhausted.

Oh, but I did finally get my spiffy new laptop, and I am loving life in the zippy HD lane. Yay!(Now if I could just figure out why the hell my old e-mails won't transfer over to the new computer I'd be all set...)

No fear, I'll be back at full speed again soon enough.

I've heard of "dog tired" before, but this is the first time I've heard of "blog tired".

Take it easy girl, we'll still be here when you get back.

Know the feeling. I ended up collapsed on the sofa at 1 o'clock today and slept heavily for over an hour. I hope that's the end of the jet-lag!

Poor Itai! Poor you! ... I am not sure what platform you use but if its an Apple you should be able to bring the old emails into the new ..

It's Windows7 and I *should*, but I can't. I'm still working on it.

Loving the high definition graphics though. Loving. A lot.
