Holy crap you guys! IT IS MARCH! When did this happen? HOW did this happen? Not only is it March, but day light savings already occurred, which is great for longer days and all, but dear lord where does the time go!? (also my excuse for wanting to be cozy at night and watch Netflix seems to have suddenly disappeared)
Today is my first day in over two weeks of having a moment to sit and write to you (yeah, all that stuff you have been reading... prewritten... which makes me the suburban mom of the blogging world [serving you the writing equivalent of a frozen dinner] but you know what? Sometimes we can't do it all and that is ok). Frankly, I couldn't be happier than to be sitting here, sipping my coffee, dreaming of all the things I long to say, the stories I have been holding on to, waiting for the perfect moment to light a candle, put on my writers cap, dip my pen into an ink well and jot down each memory with love and affection (see Jo from Little Women). Ok...that is a lie, to be honest, I am sipping coffee and distractedly thinking of all the things I need to get done today because I have been putting 'real life' on hold so I could tour friends and family all over the California coast (which, don't get me wrong, was amazing).
While I wish my life were an Eminem song, I've slipped back to reality (thankfully I still have gravity) but that reality seems like this hazy dream, so maybe I'm not doing it right. Can you tell me what it is supposed to look like? How does it feel? Do I get a wand? No?... Fine.
Picking up the pieces after having guests or traveling can seem so... ordinary and mundane... but I won't lie to you, I'm kind of excited. Grocery shopping?! Bring it on! I've got food to make, laundry to do, and a house to clean! WOOO.... (for those of you that may not know me that well... that is all sarcasm... except for maybe the food part because, well, it's FOOD).
Do you have any tricks for getting life back on track? My coffee will only last me another 15-20 minutes and then I will have to get on with it (that is to say, tell me all your secrets ASAP!).
