I've been struggling the last few weeks to keep an upbeat attitude. I've been continuing on my list journey, mostly with # 78. I read when I need a break from real life. The problems of literary characters sweep me away from the seemingly endless trials, troubles, and annoyances in my own life. I know that that isn't healthy. So, I've also been trying to write some things out in my journal.
Add to my ennui a cold shared with my husband for almost 2 weeks, a crack in a windshield, and the pressure of making the house presentable to in-laws, and I'm fried. I'm also fighting to accept people as they are, and fighting against myself and my Charlie Brown football tendencies. I know that I will always always always run for the ball, for that great kick. It's worth the times flying through the air for the times I make contact.
Anyhoo. I will be back in a few days, hopefully well-rested and with a clear head, to fully update you on my progress.
