Just write!

I haven't been posting much lately. I'm sorry. I think I've been spending all of my energy on just getting through the days: getting to work; making sure J does his homework (but not always); getting dinner on the table (but not always); making sure the house isn't a total pit; trying to meet Sisterhood and Temple obligations; trying to stay focused at work (not always succeeding); trying to exercise a few times a week. I'm feeling pretty good today, but I've been dealing with nausea for over 3 months now, on and off, as well as some other annoying symptoms, and I just haven't felt like myself. In addition to my little struggles, it seems that the world is falling apart. I can barely read the newspaper anymore. Earthquakes, weird weather in all parts of the world, wars, increased conservatism all over the world, not to mention a sense of utter frustration with both the economy and the government here in the U.S. There is very little good news these days.

Now this is getting depressing.

On the plus side, I have been feeling better for the past few days; spring is trying very hard to arrive here in New England; J's basketball team is playing really well as they go into the finals; did I mention that spring is coming?

We're out of the "dregs" of February and into March. The sun is out longer, the days are a little warmer (so long as there is no Nor'easter coming), bird song is finally being heard, and we're less than a month from Spring. It makes sense that you're feeling better now - I think everyone is. Now find a sunny patch of sky and bask in the sunlight (the vitamin D will do you good!)

Down here in Australia we're experiencing the first glorious days of autumn (before the not-so-glorious days of winter). I'm going to think about hibernating this year. If I could just offload the school run, it might be possible...

Hope you're feeling better soon!
