Braaains!

Happy 2014!

Real life starts up again for me January 6th.  It can't come fast enough.  All this holiday laziness and doing nothing but eating and drinking and sleeping and separating the girls in fights has taken its toll.  I wake up feeling like my gray matter has liquefied.  I expect to see it running out of my ears and onto my pillow.

Despite the rainy days and lack of appointments, it's impossible to write. The three other members of my family are hard-core gamers and the noise is nerve-wracking.  I sit in front of my computer unable to shut out the sounds of the odd Sims language, the tat-tat-tat of Battlefield machine guns, and the moan of Minecraft zombies. 

Zombie.  That's it -- I feel like a zombie.  Down to my hunger for brains. 

I just want a working brain again.

A simple goal for 2014:  Get a brain that works.  And then work it hard.

But until then, I'm eating some chocolate, gulping down a glass of champagne, and going back to bed.

  1. I am glad you haven't started eating the brains of your cats and family, Katie. I have to admit I'm kind of looking forward to January 6th myself. I have to finish a paper and start studying for an exam - but right now, I'm lazing about watching the Mentalist with my daughters - and that's the only thing I feel like doing.

    Happy New Year!!

  2. Lexxie -- isn't it crazy how being lazy breeds more laziness? *Sigh* Hugs to you and your family (hope you son is doing well without you).

  3. Hi Katie! You know the formula: A body in motion stays in motion; a body at rest stays at rest. Happy New Year!

  4. I know why I love your posts about the everyday....they're just like me and make me feel like I'm not alone in going two steps forward and three steps back except you have a better sense of humour about it. Keep it up Katie!! xx
