As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I’m really busy, and I’m really enjoying being really busy. That said, it’s sort of a fuzzy gray area between, “Whee! Really busy is fun and exhilarating! I love puppies and kitties and cookies and I’m so busy I don’t even notice the huge mess that has taken over our house!” and “AHH NOTHING WILL EVER GET DONE.” The first one should be said like I’m the simple dog, and the second like I’m the helper dog.
The exciting thing that’s happening is that I am figuring out, slowly but surely, what I want to do with my life and where to direct my time and energy once this over-employed insanity becomes under-employed insanity. I’m feeling hopeful and inspired, but I still don’t have the answers I want. It’s a process, I suppose.
In the meantime, I started blogging every day for NaBloPoMo, and I haven’t really stopped. It’s sort of like exercising: sometimes it’s hard to just do it, but the endorphins make it worth it. And by endorphins, I mean comments and emails that you guys send me… thanks for all your support and awesomeoness. BUT! The helper dog in me has decided that getting up early or staying up late to write is not necessarily healthy anymore, so I’m cutting back – no more weekend posts.
I don’t know if you all have seen Avenue Q – if you haven’t, do it! Go see it! It’s like Rent but with puppets. And funnier. – but there’s a song that’s been going through my head, with slightly modified lyrics:
My version goes, “It’s a fine, fine line between insanity and alive…”
Finally, goats! Because it’s Thursday, and that means it’s almost Friday. Hooray!
What are you doing this weekend? Where is your happy place? Will you still be here when regular Bird who has slept a regular amount on a regular basis comes back? Please say yes.
