Filled with Dread

It's official. I go back to work on Monday, October 26th. I am DREADING this. For four months I've been home with my two boys, and yes, I've wanted to throw things and scream and cry. (well, maybe I've actually done all those partum?) But the idea that someone else is going to be seeing their smiles, and fixing their cries, and laughing at their laughs is killing me.

Of course Tommy is in bed with a cold. I've been feeling sick since the start of October, and turns out I have a nasty sinus infection, but cold trumps sinus infection, and I have the kids. And errands to run. But it's snowing right now. So I can't do anything. I mean, I could do things like clean the bathrooms, do laundry, and straighten up. But I don't like to do any of those things while the kids are up.

Anyhow...woe is me I guess.

My friend Cole (I Heart My Chaotic Life mentioned Twilight lately and I need to vent.

Ever since this whole "Twilight" craze started, I've been annoyed. I'm someone who's always been a fan of Vampires...probably because I loved Anne Rice's "Interview with a Vampire" series. But this craze has just unnerved me. Everyone I talk to has apparently been "vampire" crazed since birth. And now there's True Blood, Twilight, Vampire Diaries...etc etc etc. And for some reason I'm annoyed.

Maybe it's because all the "goth" kids are doing it. Maybe because it's yet another "thing" people are using to be "different". EXCEPT THAT EVERYONE IS DOING IT. Maybe because for so many years I've been part of and a fan of a scene that I've never "looked the part" of. Sorry I'm not pierced head to toe, that I'm not a fan of looking like I rolled out of a trashcan this morning...

Actually I'm not sorry. I'm glad I'm happy to be me. I'm sad not everyone else has gotten to that place yet.

I received an award?!?! A "Love Ya" shout out from my friend and bloggy-mentor, Cole!
I will go ahead and copy and paste her description here:
  • This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming.
  • These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
  • They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.
  • Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
  • Please give more attention to these writers.
  • Deliver this award to six bloggers who must choose six more and include this text into the body of their award.
I'm just getting into the "blogosphere" as I've heard it referred to, so don't have followers or even someone to pass this along to yet. But thanks for the love!
