Has It Really Been A Month?

I've meant to get back here before now, really I have. (Those of you who know me IRL will be scratching your heads as to why I'm here doing this instead of everything else that is supposed to be getting done. Don't scratch too hard -- it's bad for your scalp.)

What's been on my mind:
  • I've said to the universe twice since my last post, "I'm happy to take money for doing something I like to do, but I WILL NOT RUSH AND STRESS MYSELF OUT TO DO SO. If that means I don't get the $$, then so be it." And the universe spake unto me, "Miche, just tell me when you can be ready and whether or not you accept personal cheques." Nice.
  • I'm behind on all things Christmas. And instead of staying up all night and trying to pull off a minor miracle, I'm just redefining how things will get done this year. Like no fancy baked good gifts for wM's teacher this year.
  • I'm grateful for my health and the health of my family and friends. No matter how dysfunctional and disjointed, I'd feel much worse about things if they weren't around. Sometimes I need to be reminded about that.
  • I'm not sure if I've given up on the acting dream, or whether I'm just letting it nap for a bit. Timing and schedules et al aren't aligning themselves in a way to make things possible. I thought I'd be more upset about it. I'm almost wondering whether or not it's time to let it go.
  • We may be hosting a new food allergy in this household. One of the biggies. More on that when things get medically confirmed.
  • I'm grateful for truck drivers who let me in front of them.
  • I'm grateful for car breaks that work.
  • I'm grateful that all the rain we had on the w/e wasn't snow.
  • I'm grateful that wM's school is awesome and so are all of the staff in their own way.
  • I'm grateful for a kitchen full of food, shelter to call our own and heat and running water.

And now, I must get on with life.
