I’d like a nap, please

Random bits and pieces:

— I am so tired today. Like really beat-down tired. I guess it’s not surprising because I’ve been overextending myself lately and our vacation was actually a good bit of work with the two boys.

— A photo I took of my favorite pasta salad is being used in this article on vegetarian entertaining. I was so surprised and happy that the author wanted to use it!

— Three things I am sick of hearing/reading about: 1) Paris Hilton 2) the iPhone 3) Harry Potter. I don’t care about any of these things and the obsession surrounding all of them is just plain silly.

— I made these awesome Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Muffins the other day and they are so incredibly good! They are quite sweet, though, and I think they are better as a treat than as a breakfast item.

— We’re probably going to be replacing our Hyundai Elantra within the next week. I bought that car right before our wedding! (Talk about being stressed out!). It’s six years old and is quickly approaching 120,000 miles. We’re deciding between a Corolla and a Matrix, but leaning toward the Corolla because it gets better mileage.

— I started the Flower Basket Shawl again a couple weeks ago, and just haven’t had the time to work on it. Well, I have knitting time, but usually I’m tired and I need to focus when working on my shawl.

— And last, starting on Sunday I will be the wine blogger at Celebrate Wine! I am very excited about this writing position, and I hope you all find your way over there a couple times a week. I’m feeling so good about writing again, I had no idea how much I missed it. And I am happy that I’m actually earning money again, I won’t lie about that. I’ve never been fully comfortable being a “housewife/at-home-mom” or whatever you want to call it.

So generally, good things all around! Hope everyone is have a lovely Friday!

    I’m sorry that you’re feeling *so* incredibly tired. I can imagine how much work it must have been, traveling with your two cuties. We’ll be in that situation soon as we drive 12 hours to Indiana! *sigh* I hope that it’ll go OK. Congratulations on your writing opportunities! That just rocks! I’m really happy for you, Carol! I love being able to freelance … it makes me feel great to be continuing my career interests while being a SAHM. Have fun with your knitting! We’ll have to get together (at the cafe?) sometime when we get back from IN! 🙂
