Let me be honest: Sometimes my “day job” destroys me. Lately I have been so busy, I feel completely burnt out. My days have been non-stop, full force, all day and it leaves me completely shattered by the time I get home. It leaves me wanting, so much, to figure out a way to balance it all, to make my passions my full time past time, but I know that’s easier said than done.
I took a dance class with my friend, Jackie, the other night and it damn near killed me. During the class, I found myself wishing it was over, and that just isn’t like me. But I think, after the work days I’ve been having, everything gets overshadowed with this gloom I’ve been carrying around with me. It’s not something I want to continue, because it truly makes every part of my life less shiny. Yes, I just wrote less shiny and I feel like a total goober for that, forgive me.
My saving grace, day after day, is the boy. If it weren’t for him, I’m not sure how I would even function…I certainly wouldn’t eat so well; I’d probably have scurvy.
I guess what I mean to say, is that I know I am extremely lucky. Despite everything that is happening in the world around us, the boy and I always have such a safe, happy and strong relationship to come home to….And we have so much fun together! That makes everything worth it!
Anyway, if you have been expecting an email or a package from me and are waiting for a response, let me just say, I am really sorry for the delay. I plan to get caught up this weekend, this week has just been, for lack of a better word, nuts. The salted, dry roasted kind.
Here’s a few things that are helping me through this monster of a week…
|The boy and I are reading this hilarious book…That is to say, he reads it to me. It’s really really good!|
|learning songs on my uke!|
|The boy’s apple crumble|
|my favorite dinner of the moment: The boy’s tomato soup!|
