I feel as thought I’ve been in a bit of haze for several months now. Maybe I was depressed. Maybe I had lost my way. I’m not sure. But I had a breakthrough today. I successfully filled out tax related paperwork and faxed it off. Then I scheduled three doctor's appointments, called the insurance company to get the run around on prescriptions and filled out my 2008 calendar with birthdays and holidays. I haven't been this productive in months. It's crazy. It's like I'm a new girl. It's sort of awesome. I hope it lasts.
In honor of exiting the haze, I've started actual projects. Because when I'm not in a haze I start to think there are 28 hours in a day. Currently, I'm swimming through hundreds of photos to select pictures of my kids to use in a calendar to give to all the grandparents. This is my third year in a row to make it. I'm developing a bit of a following. That's if my mother counts as a following. She comes right out and asks me to keep making the calendars. Last year, she even made a point of requesting one with color photos. I know. Gotta respect someone that knows what they want.
I've also been doing laundry, washing dishes, shopping online for Christmas presents, researching kindergarten programs and starting my new job. I tried to get some cuddle time in too but my husband claims he's tired. I guess we'll see about that. It's hard to sleep with a crazy woman talking in your ear. I've also found turning the bedside lamp on to be very effective. Not to mention a finger in the ear. And pulling the covers off him. I'm like the chick in Fatal Attraction who won't be ignored. Only less creepy. Obviously.
