am here. came to spend a week in nc decompressing then managed to (a) forget the piece that was just beginning to make sense and (b) get sick. so i just lay around with a compress to my cellulitis-infested ear, watching the clock for time to down my next antibiotic, and wonder why life is so much busier now than when i had 2 wee ones born within 14 months of each other.

how does that happen?

i mean, really. there should be so much room in my life now – room to do yoga, walk, write, stitch, and still tend to family matters. instead it often feels like i’m clawing the clock, trying to slow the hands down enough to give me even 30 minutes to stitch. now that i’m sick, i have the time, but no energy or desire.

maybe, hopefully tomorrow.

    Time just does that! Don’t ask me how, it just does. Maybe because you are sick you have time to think and normally just get on with being busy.Hopefully the enforced rest will let you get things back in balance. I hope you feel better and bouncing soon.
