Could it really have been a 1/3 of a year since I last logged a weblog entry? How is it that almost 4 months have passed without me writing down a jot?
Oh yeah, working full time really does suck up days.
I had gotten so used to the “more casual work schedule” shall we say? I had forgotten what it was like to work every weekday, each week, for months. I hadn’t even noticed so much time had passed since I had last visited my thoughts. The public ones. Here. I have had thoughts……
Anywho, it did occur to me that it’s been quite some time since I had spent any REAL time worrying about getting these particular juices flowing, and I have to say, I’m really glad I’m taking the time now. Working the 9 to 5 (again) you forget sometimes to take a step back, breath in, re-evaluate, breath out, and move on, move forward. It’s not a bad thing to be busy, but it’s nice to make time for other things besides life maintenance items and lists, the commute, and the constant chatter in your brain that is left-over stress from the daily grind. (Note to self: that’d be a GREAT coffee shop name!) Honestly, it’s also nice to have the holidays over. They’re always……a mixed bag.
Now that it’s March, it is, of course, easier for me to think. The winter hazy is fading away. The spring sneezes have moved in a little, though. I’ve gone to working somewhere between part time and full time, and I like it. I’ve been crafting, hot tubbing, traveling, crafting, but no sailing yet. I rode my bike to work almost every day in February. Life has kept moving along, even if I wasn’t paying attention to the time that was passing. Friends got married, others fell in love, I gained and lost 5 pounds in a week, 1 year olds became 2 year olds and 3 year olds became 4 years olds, I found new family and re-visited old memories, and still time doesn’t care if I notice it at all. It just keeps ticking by, little by little, second by second, minute to hour, days, nights……but not for another 115 days till I meet you again.
