I have been avoiding the blog because I have been ruminating on nothing in particular. This has taken the form mostly of painting my house. I painted the foyer and upstairs hallway and my uncle B painted the stairwell. We have replaced three light fixtures in the house, including the one on the stairwell. I love my house now, and in this phase of life, there’s very little left that I want to do to it other than keep it a good bit cleaner on a regular basis.
I haven’t been journaling much, either. I have been trying to think as little as possible and have been trying to live in the moment. I have also had very little energy because I am pretty sure my thyroid levels are off, maybe way off. My endurance is extremely low. I have been wanting to get back into my yoga routine but knowing that I only have endurance for short sprints of it at at the time has made me throw it to the back burner altogether in favor of sitting in the recliner. I recognize it is not a healthy routine to be in.
School gets out this Friday, May 17 and I am woefully unprepared for the onslaught of three little boys at home all the time. I’ve done no planning. It may be a lazy summer of insisting that the boys play out in the yard, or it may be a video game summer. We had one of those in 2013. I can’t tell just yet.
Mother’s Day came and went and J and the boys got me these beautiful flowers that are still beautiful two days later. I am a lucky, lucky woman to be doing life with this family.
I need another project….I am burning out on the 365 project. I’d love to figure out something to write about on the blog, or maybe I just need to say to hell with it and just journal, only journal on the blog. A thought.
