  • Chronicles: Lately…

    Today, I don’t really have a particular subject, outside of my own thoughts, I’m just using my blog to write what’s in my mind.  I didn’t post on Friday…my usual This Weekend post.  It made me sad.  I enjoy posting those, but somehow I just couldn’t muster up enough motivation to make something work.  Whenever I post I have to ‘feel’ it.  If I don’t, then it falls flat, completely, and I’m no better off than if it had never been written.  So, I refrained.

    Then, over the weekend D and I had a wonderful opportunity to go out on a date.  The weather was nice and we sat and talked in a little cafe.  It’s been AGES since we’ve done that.  D and I don’t really sit and have heart to hearts very often.  We talk about so many things, in general, and share wonderful experiences but our heart to hearts are something to be cherished and that’s what Saturday brought me…a little moment of time when we shared deep things.  I cried from some of the pain I felt while we were talking.   This past week has been a surprising sea of emotion for me.  It’s been a while since I’ve felt overwhelmed and completely lost.  Today, over on MoMoMod, I’ll be addressing one of the hiccups that consumed my mind.
    I guess it’s that time again — reassess, refocus, rejuvenate.

    Not sure why it can be a painful process, but it is.  There is always something to be tweaked and adjusted in life.  At this point, I’m just trying to make sure I don’t get caught up in being too stubborn to allow life to move along.

    There is a lot riding on these mommy shoulders of mine and I must always be ready to pull my load.

    Thank you, my wonderful Deb, it was a little rough but I’m regrouping. Nothing bad happened, only changes on the horizon, it’s never easy, is it?

    Are you Misha, really???:)) Misha is my son’s name too, how wonderful, suits you so well. I am glad you enjoyed “just two of you ” time- it’s a rare commodity and when it happens for us we cherish it more.

    Yes! I’m really Misha :) I know, it’s very odd to have a name like that as a girl. Most Russian speakers get a grin and try to convince me my name is Masha ;) haha.

    And yes, ‘us time’ is amazing. This last date was like we were young and 20 again :)

    Well, I love it on you- it’s my favorite name- I got two- both hubby and my eldest.:)
