a little music for you to read by.
isn't it amazing how music works?
you can be transported back to a concert experience you once had
just by hearing that song again
in the comfort of your own home.
i've been missing in action this week
to state the obvious.
i finished my last night shift yesterday morning
and between working nights
and being sick with a nasty cold
i'm in survival mode here.
the cold is still kicking my ass
but nothing rejuvenates me quite as much
as knowing i'll get to sleep at night like a normal person for a while.
last night i slept like a baby, thank you Ambien
and woke up feeling inspired to do a bunch of domestic ish
i cleaned the house
washed the sheets
cleaned the litter box
used vinegar to get all the hard water gunk off the faucets
basically living out the most glamorous life imaginable.
but i also did some contemplating.
some blog reading
some coffee drinking
some toasted pumpkin bread with cream cheese eating.
i had planned another "on women having it all" post
a conclusion of sorts
and am still planning on it
i haven't sorted through all my thoughts yet
but i will share this one with you...
i treasure my domestic-goddess days.
like today...i am blissfully content folding socks and making the bed
i think i'd come to loathe these days if they were all i had
just like i'd hate going to work all the time if that were all i had.
it's the concept of balance.
i know i'm not really breaking any new ground with that statement.
everybody knows you need balance in life
between self...family...work...faith...and everything else
it all needs to hang in elegant balance.
i know you all have crazy schedules too
probably not exactly like mine
but not all that different.
if none of you could relate, you wouldn't be reading, right?
so maybe you're in the same boat.
loving and hating where you are all at once.
gosh this post is all over the place.
might as well quit while i'm behind and go shopping.
