i’ve been here for 4 days now and i’ve yet to figure out where to start. i have no routine and feel very discombuberated. for the first time since 1981, i have no job and i’m not sure what to do with that. i must admit that i am enjoying being home, cooking dinner each day, and doing all those things that go with “keeping house”. it’s not something i’ve ever had a chance to do before in my life.

but i have found that there is a great deal of guilt that comes along with that. lots of it. i’m scared that coach will resent that i’m not working. i know that’s a stupid thought but it’s there anyway.

i do have a plan. in the meantime, i’m recovering, napping, cooking, and staying cool. the move was not kind to the beast. i think every single symptom i live with has increased 1,000%… i know it will calm down with some good rest.

and to make things even more interesting – wouldn’t you know that as soon as we move to the valley a heat wave would descend upon us… heat indexes near 111 for the past few days… they predict it will cool off to a chilly 97 by the weekend.

here are some photos from our journey… i’ll write about some of it in the next day or so…

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. It sounds to me like the beast is trying to tell you that right now rest is not a luxury or being lazy. Rest and recovery are a Necessity.

  2. Holy crap that is hot! I get all of this…this was the year my daughter starts kindergarten, I planned to go back to work so my husband could make a career change and get out of the restaurant business. Instead, he is taking a job with more hours and more pay. I feel so damn guilty. It stinks. I cannot stand or sit for very long. I am thankful to be walking, I take care of the kids 24/7 without much of a break, I clean the house and take care of the bills, yard, etc…I know I should feel proud that I can still do all of this, and I am. Right now, I am meditating on being pleased with the present. It makes my day better. I still am kicking around the idea of returning to work, but deep down, I am pretty sure that if I do, I will crash. I am trying to pace myself, my feet are in such delicate shape, I sense that if I care for them, I will be able to keep them working for longer. My husband works alot and someone has to raise the kids and deal with the home….so, Sherry, I get this whole post…love you girl! Keep drawing and writing!!!

  3. Brilliant photos. I think for the moment, rest, rest and a bit more rest is about the only thing you HAVE to do.
