Even when I’m smiling I still look haggard.
See? A little prettier because I’m smiling but still like I haven’t slept in a week. Which I have. Because I’m not the one who is nursing. I’m helping corral the toddler some of the time.
Addition: I’ve been hiding essentially since I forced myself out of bed this morning and have applied to four jobs, and have started writing my essay about The Songlines by Bruce Chatwin to be posted on Literary Bex (the Tumblr) sometime later this week (hopefully).
The Songlines was the last book I read in 2012, and, potentially, one of the most important.
