Never close enough
I have been out of the loop for quite sometime, I have managed to scoot in here on occasion after the kids were asleep and read a poem or two. I start rotation soon, and have promised myself to make time to do what I am supposed to do.
All three of the kids are in school, one of which just started junior high, and is having a hard time adjusting to changing classes, and a few other things as well. My seven year old misses her daily nap, and is having a hard time making it through an entire day of books, and teachers. My ten year old seems to be doing great as he has his first crush on a girl, therefore he can't wait to get to school each day. He refuses to show any emotion for me as I drop him off at school. Yes, I know, I know...he's growing up, but man...I miss that sweet little face that looked at me as if I hung the moon.
Business has picked up for me during the day, and I have actually been able to un-block my muse and start writing again, but the days seem to bleed together.
I wake up at 5 am each morning, and go strong till midnight each day, I am worn thin and look like that long stretch of highway that needs paved and repaired. School starting was supposed to be a relief, yet I feel over worked and under payed. Yet another benefit of operating a home business and being a stay at home mom.
Deep down though...I guess this is the sweetest side of life, and I should remain thankful even if time to myself means locking myself in the bathroom.
I am back for a spell, atleast until the kids pick a sport to play, and I PROMISE to do my share here in the Forums.
I miss you guys, and the adult conversation. It feels good to be able to get back in here!
See ya'll in the trenches!
A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life, to be thankful for a good one.
