You may be wondering why I haven’t really written anything lately. I took a week hiatus, and then have posted mostly pictures or sketches. What is up?
September and October have turned into an incredibly busy time. There are numerous work obligations on top of the run-of-the-mill daily things. Additionally, I have been and remain over-committed with outside-of-work-and-family obligations. This balancing act is hard!
So, when I come home, adjust to new schedules, and think about the day, I really have no desire to write. I don’t want to comment on these conflicted thoughts in my head regarding priorities and where I want to be. I don’t want to dissect the latest strange human interaction that has me puzzled.
What I really want to do is veg in front of the TV and sketch. So, I have been. I’ve watched more late-night-silly TV than I care to admit. It’s not helping get some of these other obligations done, but it is helping my brain breathe.
My current goal is to get through the middle of November. I have done a lot of reflecting lately on what and where I want to be now and in the future. I made specific choices that got me here, and although it’s uncomfortable, this is where I feel I need to be now.
So, on with the balancing act trying to figure out how to capture my sanity, assess and articulate my needs, while working on practicing my strengths to enhance skills for future careers. All the while never neglecting the wifely and motherly duties that have been a part of my life for so long now.
While I assess, behind the scenes, I will be trying to post an image a day. The image might include some notes on what, where and why, but it might not. The image might be something from my phone-camera. The image might be from our little-better-than-phone-camera digital camera. The image might be a scanned sketch from my journal. All will be relevant to the day. Some images might be pre-dated if I forgot to post it on the day taken. All images will be by me (or my family).
Thanks for following along in this year of posting once a day. Thanks for reading and being supportive in your own ways while we all figure out these crazy balancing acts.
