I am missing the daily writing I did here during Lent.
Just a few notes about today.
It was really busy.
I drove to a nearby town to get a car wash and grocery run.
It's the first time I have driven in NJ in, well, other than going to the mechanic yesterday,
a 2 mile away drive (all's well, just checking up on things), in months...
It went well. I only did two small 'OOPs' in driving that involved accidentally
cutting people off, twice. I'll get better. I hope. :)
So that was a big deal....
....later I realized I left my brown-organic-cage-free eggs in the hot car for 5 hours.
Sigh. Was bummed about that one. They don't smell, are in the fridge, I am meaning to
look into that more tomorrow. I am hoping they are still OK...funny, there is a lot of
google searches of people doing the same mistake!
I am seeing that for various reasons, I am just, I hope,
recovering from things that had me rebuilding life again and again,
trying to get a new life, including friends and getting out, many times over.
First the move from Ottawa to get married (that's actually 2 changes),
then I got mono and had to rebuild after that.
Then a year later we moved to our own home (condo that is) 2 years ago last May,
and last year Mr Husband's adult godson died and we all had to start from
a new and unexpected place,
and there were other things, smaller, but cumulative in building
and I realized that I was dealing with burnout on various levels.
The flu + Strep Throat within 40 days not that long ago also set me back.
It's funny. While I don't have a professional job that I need to
go 'out there' for, and I don't have kids, I often have thought that
this would mean I would not be super-busy or have burnout.
Actually, it's our wonderful over-80-years-old Candle Desk Man at our
near-to-us church that keeps me seeing things right,
he's always saying how busy I am.
Anyway, later in the day I have a phone meeting and then later than that,
cabbed to farmers market (I don't really know how to parellel park in tight city places
and there is no parking really there to speak of), had an ice cream cone (!! first of season!),
had fun at the farmer's market and met Mr. Husband there.
Tomorrow is going to be the first day that I either did not have someone over
to my house this week or went out to see someone or do something.
And I am still coughing when I talk a lot.
Believe it or not, I am trying to rest in all this.
I know that I need more rest, but I also feel a great need
to continue to try to build a life here.
To build friendships.
Anyway, thankful for my online community here!
Blessed night to you all.
