So, you may have noticed my lack of blog posting this month. What exactly happened? A little bit of everything. February started off okay enough, but I was soon engulfed by work and exhaustion. Seriously, for the past 3 weeks I've been home for food, rest, and bathing. I soaked up all my free time with the most refreshing things possible: a bit of downtime with my husband and keeping up with my Bible study routine. I pretty much stopped using the computer for two weeks.
...Don't get me wrong, I love going on "computer vacations", where I totally ignore what's new Online for a week, but they are usually planned! This month I've watched my nails go unpolished as I've had to hurry to get as much housework done as possible before shuffling off to work and then come home late with absolutely no creative drive left. The constant grey days haven't helped my motivation, either. My sewing and nail polish room has turned into jumbled chaos thanks to my neglect.
It wouldn't feel so bad if I didn't have a bunch of polish waiting to be shared and several other products sitting, waiting to be reviewed. And I might feel a little more inspired to paint if I hadn't broken all of my nails...
Review to come of the what caused all the breakage after I had finally gotten my nails to be really nice. I don't mind their shorter length but if they aren't going to stay squared I'll probably lose my mind!
Whenever things seemed like they might level out this month some horrible and often sad thing would pop up in the morning and change the days plans. On Saturday one of our betta fish died; the one I had bought as our pet, to cheer my on-death's-doorstep fiancé up. Right now the only pets we can keep are fish, and we both love our quirky little bettas, so it was a sad day.
Through all of this my husband has been very supportive and helpful in whatever way he can be. He's been there for me through my recent migraine headaches caused by things like dehydration and stress. I've requested *less work* from work. I'd love to say that I think everything will turn peachy by next month but we just had our hot water heater break down, so we'll see! =P
