hi

It's been a bit of a rough past 10 days -- hence the silence.  C has a double ear infection and all of us have been fighting viral crud of one sort or another.  There is no question that Survival Mode has been the default mode around here, and I don't even have the excuse of bitter cold that most of you do.  I'm also on day 7 of a call stretch (7 of 7 -- hoorah!) . . . so, there's that.

I hate hate HATE feeling like I have this past week.  Like I'm surviving -- just getting through -- waiting for the moments to pass by so that I can move onto greener pastures.  I suppose the truth is that some periods of time really ARE kind of lame.

Between work and sickness and just feeling overextended (Josh was on call the weekend before I was),  it's just been a slog.  But I am ready to recommit to some recentering and self-care.  

More mindfulness.
More intention.
Less screen-escape-time.
More carving out SPACE: between activities, between commitments, for me and for Josh/me together.

And with that, I am going to snuggle next to (sick) Annabel on the couch with her beloved Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  More later - perhaps tomorrow, not in 10 days!

Over the last 2 weeks . . .
