Things I'm doing

* Wishing I had more time in a day
* Wanting to do all of the improvements to the yard/house/garage today. OK, I'd settle for this summer/year, but that's not going to happen, either.
* Being amazed that the Kidlet is almost two. TWO.
* Looking forward to vacation. Even though the friend we'll see questioned our destination as being vacation-worthy. It has a zoo, we won't see our families, we'll have a hotel room, and it's not home. Sounds like vacation to me.
* Already not wanting to be at any of the evening obligations that I have this week.
* Recognizing (again) some of my neurotic tendencies about clothes, my body, shopping, money, food, relationships....
* Admiring how the animals in our own zoo are getting along these days.
* Trying to get caught up after a couple of weeks of the Kidlet being in and out of daycare. Nothing major, but a missed/shared day here and there puts us all more in maintenance mode than actually feeling caught up or proactive. Someday, right?
* Coming up with a vision for our lives beyond this place.
* Struggling with that overwhelmed feeling that can be oh-so-paralyzing.

Hey, sounds like a vacation to me. Zoo, hotel. What more do you need?

more cows than people said...

* Struggling with that overwhelmed feeling that can be oh-so-paralyzing. Amen to that.

Sending you love. Hope vacation is just what it needs to be.

Just wanted to let you know you have my sympathy on the paralyzation. I tend to go that way too under a lot of pressure.

P.S. an after-thought said...

Yeah, sounds like you need a break in routine.

Right now, staying home sounds like a vacation to me.

Speaking of zoos - we had a snake in our laundry room! and I just spotted a brown spider crawling across the carpet... sharing that springtime "don't want to do this anymore at least right now" fever. vacation sounds awesome!

I am so glad that I am not the only one who longs for a vacation that doesn't involve visiting family. It makes me feel like a bad daughter/sister/aunt, but well, there it is.
