I really enjoy writing. It makes me feel comforted and I have recently been thinking that the only writing I do is in texts or emails. It isn't creative or therapeutic or about me or my life. It is usually informative and boring and answers to questions. I may or may not use appropriate punctuation. But I don't like that! I can write and you can hear my voice! I am imaginative and reflective and I. CAN. DO. THIS.
(And what's THAT all about? That word. and. period. and. word. and period. for. emphasis. thing?)
Anyway, ok, so what have I been up to? I guess the major thing in my life is that my little one has started elementary school and that has been a huge adjustment for both of us. She does like her teacher but does not like when the teacher leaves the class at lunch to eat her own lunch. (And I really can empathize with teachers and their need for a quiet lunch ALONE.) I am guessing she has some kind of abandonment issue going on. The teacher says that this is all a phase and that with time she'll get used to all of the routines of school.
So I have been working from home on WordPress adding events to a website back home and I'm a PTSA chairperson and I'm trying to be a great mom and wife all the while maintaining relationships with my girlfriends and my extended family. It's a lot.
I always say this when I come back to my blog. That I will be more disciplined. That I will use this to exercise my writing muscle and get it all out. We'll see how disciplined I can be. Stay tuned.
