Sort of ironic that this week’s blog topic on Word Whores is about time, since that seems to be the one thing I just don’t have enough of. I hesitate to use the word burn-out to describe my feelings at the moment, but there it is. And it seems silly to talk about it sometimes – there’s always someone who has it harder. But then I read articles like this and I begin to wonder at just what it is that I am doing. I mean, no, I don’t want to raise my kids that way…but I do feel as though I’m doing them a bit of a disservice with the way things are going.

Aren’t you all so lucky? You get to see an x-ray of my spine with a big honking needle sticking out of it. (Doc found it very funny that I wanted to blog about it, but there it is. Next time I’ll see if he can’t get a shot with a regular camera so you can see me in all my glory.) Yes, that needle is sitting on the bone. Yea, it doth sucketh mightily. So, yeah.
