Hikari's Food/Japanophile and Other Interesting Stuff blog


I have at least three different posts partially completed and sitting in drafts. And that’s only for this blog. That doesn’t include my half-finished short stories.

My blog’s one-year anniversary came and went at the beginning of this month without a post.

Even my cooking has fallen into a slump, as we rely more on easy to prepare foods.

And I thought I would have more time now that school was out.

What’s the holdup? My new job. I’m having to learn how to do my job, and DO the job all at the same time. Some days are slower than others, but then there’s weeks like this past one where I’ve stayed late every day and actually worked, both physically and mentally. When I get home, I don’t want to move, let alone cook or write. Hubby’s made fun of the things I’ve tried to say as my brain has shut down upon entering the house.

At least Hubby is being supportive. But eventually, I have to get off my butt and deal with it.

But, I look at it this way: I am lucky enough to have a full-time job and I’m paid well enough to have a savings account again! I’m already ahead of the curve!

*sigh* Off to take care of the mountain of chores that have been piling up since I started working a month ago. I think I’m finally starting to build some stamina.
