The summer has been slipping away with a lack of rhythm that makes me restless. I pine for the life we'll have when we're all together and have to try too hard to enjoy what I have here in the meantime. I complain about culture shock and feeling trapped when I should be thankful that I even have a roof over my head. Instead of telling myself to stop being such a sniveling, morose little creep, I'm going to make a list.
*Find some new haunts the little guy and I can explore by bike.
*Take at least one afternoon to myself every week. By myself. There are grandparents here, and I must use them.
*Create a production schedule that is actually doable, rather than one that leaves me feeling inadequate.
*Find more creative ways to deal with my food allergies so I'm not hungry all the time or eating things that make me feel like shit.
*Finish all the half-done projects that have all worked their way out of the pile of moving boxes.
*Make good on all my swaps, custom orders and the Meme gifts from way back (hope I can find that post and all the addresses!)
I could add to my list all day, but a small person is requesting my undivided and, well...I don't give it to him often enough.
