When You Wake Up One Morning and Realize Two Months Have Gone By

Apparently it is May. And not just a little bit May, but the kind of May that is most of the way to June.


You know those times when work goes nuts and you have two family emergencies on opposite sides of the country and then you find out that after a year of living in the soul-sucking uncertainty of limbo, you ARE actually moving to a new province after all, and what if potential home buyers in your very cold real estate market hate everything about the house you’ve lovingly cared for over the past six years?

Those times when LIFE HAPPENS, and any item on your to do list that does not result in DIRE CONSEQUENCES if left undone is just not going to happen?

Yeah, those.

Funny thing was, I actually thought I was handling things pretty well, until I went to the physiotherapist yesterday:

Therapist: So how are you managing your stress with everything that’s been going on?

Me: (thinks about it) I don’t actually feel that stressed.

Therapist: (pinches the rock hard traps connecting my neck and shoulders) I beg to differ.

But the sun in shining today, bringing a promise of summer and a glimmer of new opportunities, and I’m starting to feel like the worst might actually be over, at least for a week or two. So I’ll try to be around here a little more often. If I’m not, though, you can always find me on Facebook or Twitter.

How are things with you?

    1. We are moving to Ontario. It’s going to be a big change, but hopefully big change will lead to big new opportunities! And more time to write.

    1. Not yet, but it’s a real danger – I have to remind myself to play hooky when the weather is good!
