Taughannock Falls, NY 2019
Gosh it’s been a crazy couple of months. I haven’t had time to read never mind think. Something had to give as I was extremely overloaded.
Princess PITA’s spinal surgery and her subsequent terrifying pulmonary embolism.
Trying to get a house ready to sell and finally getting it on the market only to have our time frame thwarted by vandalism.
My ocular adventures with sclera contacts. (Complete DISASTER)
The very trying process of FINALLY applying for a green card for my youngest.
Crappy family issues with Backstabatha* stirring the pot as per flippin’ usual
I’ve become a Notary Public for the State of New York – still kind of awed that I passed the exam!
Daisy having a spine injury and needing a lot of attention and care.
…. all while working full time!
Something had to give. I’ve been mentally and physically overdrawn and I didn’t have the energy for anything else, hence my absence. It’s hard to think of stuff to write about when you’re always so very tired.
I’ve made changes in the last two weeks. First and foremost, I’ve reduced the hours I’m working. I feel like I’ve come out from behind a cloud. I feel a lot lighter. I’ve even got up to skullduggery and mayhem again! That might not be considered good news by some but it’s not my fault they’re so jumpy – well maybe it is… but they should be used to be by now!
Lessons have been learned. No matter what I think, I’m not invincible. Learning that it’s okay to take a step back and even say no once in a while has been a steep learning curve. I really do struggle with not trying to do everything for everyone. The fact I’m still working part time is a case in point. I had given notice but on my last day got talked into staying on. I felt so guilty I couldn’t refuse. I compromised and didn’t cave completely but it just goes to show how easy it is to get swamped.
Just writing this little bit has been like breathing. Sometimes you just don’t know how much you miss something until you return!
