Tick tock tick tock

It probably seems like I've abandoned my blog. 

I guess I have.

Nothing blog-worthy thus the neglect.

Most of the time, it seems like I am running out of time.

To accomplish daily chores which need full attention.

It's not like my life is any different than what it was a week ago.

I just turned a year older but it seems I get tired more easily.

Probably signs of old age creeping in.

I always say I may not look my age (44) but I certainly feel it.

For instance, I got J.K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy as a birthday gift.

I've never read the Harry Potter books so I'm not familiar with her style of writing.

After a long day of chores, I settle into bed and try to read before sleeping.

One night, I was holding the book up to get a better light on the pages.

I dozed off and boink the hard bound book fell on my forehead.

I was briefly awaken then promptly fell back into a deep slumber.

Next day I had a 'bukol' on my forehead.

A slightly red bump which D never fails to point at then laughs to his heart's content.

Last night I only made through a couple of paragraphs before I dozed off.

I gasp in horror as I realize I am only 44 years old to feel such exhaustion.

I can only imagine how my parents in their 70s feel.

But mind you, those two have more energy combined than I have in my weak knees.

So there! I've explained myself.

Now onward to preparing lunch and everything it involves.

It's not you. Some books are really written to cause you to doze off.

Nope it's definitely me!

I always fall asleep when I read in bed unless of course I get the insomnia attacks.

Either way I'm at a disadvantage.

Boo. :D
