Right now I feel rather adrift- out of sync. My son started pre school this week. I knew this day was going to come, but still, it's rather a shock that my little baby is growing up. It won't be long now until everything I do or say will become a major embarrassment to him. It'll be a while I know, but that day will come, just like pre school day came.
Having all my hair cut off was an attempt to get out of my rut- shock my system I guess. Try to find out who or what I am now. Things haven't changed much in my life for going on 4 1/2 years. My day to day routine is pretty much set. Now that I have 3 mornings off to myself each and every week I don't even know what to do. The first day I wandered around a store. The second day I also wandered around a store. I don't want to do that again, so I have to figure this out and soon.
I have bought a few books- one on art dolls because I want to get right back to making my dolls when the weather changes. I also bought Style Statement- (thanks SCB Mella- at least I think it was Mella) maybe figuring out key things about my preferences and style- and learning to listen to myself- will also help. I have only gotten about half way through that book so I don't have MY style statement worked out yet- but I have gotten some good insights already so I have hope for the second half of the book!
My hip and back are still killing me. I can walk (finally) but dressing is difficult and sitting is pretty painful. It seemed to get better for a while then I think I over did it. At least that is what I am telling myself. I think a Dr. visit is in my near future.
