I don’t know how to describe the mood here around the House of Hale these past few days. It’s not bad, but it’s just kind of… I don’t know, off maybe? I’ve finished my article, and sent it in for the final tweaks from the editor, the housework is pretty much caught up, Nora is entertaining herself in her Pack and Play, and here I am sitting down with a cup of coffee blogging. Things we’ve done a million times before, but today it just doesn’t feel right.
I feel like I’m suspended in a weird void. Going through the motions but not really accomplishing anything. I was talking to a friend about it yesterday so I’m not the only one (thankfully lol) but I can’t figure out why I feel this way or how to resolve it. I guess it could be in part because of all the uncertainty with the country right now. Everyone is a little edgy around here. Not personally in the House of Hale, but locally in Nowheresville. It’s SO quiet around town, no matter what time I go out the streets are empty, the stores are lonely and people are keeping to themselves.
It’s really weird, and kind of throwing me off kilter. I think a lot of it has to do with the change in weather too. It’s pretty cold so I’ve been snuggled up under my favorite fuzzy throw with a mug of coffee and my computer. Nora has been extra snuggly lately too. This morning we sat on the couch and watched several episodes of Curious George after breakfast before she was ready to head back to bed for her morning nap. We’ve reached the stage where she knows what she wants, but she hasn’t quite figured out how to form the necessary vocabulary. She is all about pointing right now though, and the whiney cry. lol.
I can’t wait until she figures out those words so I can completely understand what’s going on in her little mind. I know, I’ve said that a million times before. lol. It’s just so exciting and amazing to watch those little wheels turning. Speaking of those little wheels, she’s starting to fuss. Nap time must be over. lol
Until later Bloggies. 🙂
