Really nothing differentiates today from a week ago. Except a week ago I had topics that came to me like the snap of a finger. Suddenly it is a New Year. Really nothing changes except I am staring down the barrel of posting daily again, therefore topics are coming like molasses. Everyday for the past three days I think, I’m boring, uninspired, and a woman without a topic. I sat at dinner last night and listened to a story of bravery that was so extreme we may be watching a movie about her someday. Still nothing comes.
For me I need something to look forward to, something to work towards. Right now it is dead of winter. Spring is too far off to work for. There will be no time away this year for me without the kids. The boys are in a place of quasi harmony right now and frankly I hope it stays that way, although we will be back to tinkering with Ryan’s delicate brain chemistry before no time. That is something i don’t look forward to.
We were at a swim meet most of the day, held in the smallest pool in history, where I stood for the better part of four hours. That leaves me with few words.
