Hello? Are You There?

I just wanted to let you all know I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth. I'm still here. But I haven't been making a lot of lunches lately, and we haven't been making or doing anything awesome or fun, so I haven't really had anything to post about. I've had this cold for over 2 weeks now, plus being pregnant has kind of pulled me into myself the last seven few months. And now that I've hit the 'everything feels uncomfortable' stage, I'm dropping things right and left, since I just don't have the energy to do it all anymore.
Since Little Z has been sick too, for at least a week, I've used that as an excuse to drop even more things. And since I only need to make a 'real' lunch if we're eating on the go between activities, when I cancel the activities she needs to eat between, there's no need for me to make lunch! Plus she's barely eating anything. Sadly, this means neither of us has been eating as healthy as we normally would, or as healthy as we should. But I'm finding it hard to even bring myself to care, that's how laid-low I am by everything right now.
My sister even came over and cleaned my kitchen, and built shelves to house all my bento and MTM supplies... and I could barely even bring myself to get excited about it. I know I'm really grateful, and I know how much I'm going to love all my stuff being better organized and more accessible (already I'm using my Lunch Punches more!) But I'm just so tired/depressed/hormonal/low-iron that I couldn't even pretend to be excited and/or whatever-other-reaction my poor sister was hoping for. I just want to go back to bed.

Before Z got sick, I could at least force myself to make fun lunches on the days I *had* to (even though my husband would probably have preferred I do dishes...) But now with no need to make a packed lunch this past week, we're eking by on late PBHoney sandwich 'breakfasts' and whatever they feed her at preschool during snack. And occasionally I remember to toss a carrot and/or some apple slices at her. I couldn't even tell you what I've been eating... My brain is such a fog!
So hopefully this 'dry spell' will end soon, since making these cute lunches and blogging about it are some of the few things I still actually enjoy doing. I even stopped playing Farmville! [*gasp*]

I apologize if I bummed any of you out. But I wanted to let everyone know that I am still here, and I do still plan on being here... Although I'll probably take a 'maternity leave' come the New Year!


  1. Sorry you are feeling so unwell. My interest in food and cooking always waned towards the end of pregnancy. I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. I don't blame you for being all "who cares" - it'd be hard not to feel that way for a while, with you pregnant and everyone sick! Hope you're feeling lots better really soon.


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
