been so busy lately

The last few days have been busy and stressful, so I've been coming home and crashing, which is why I haven't posted in a few days. I find my response to stress is different than it used to be. Stress used to kick me into high gear, but now it just makes me tired. I'm not sure what that means, but I don't really like it. I need more energy, not less!

My mother is doing fine now, by the way. Around mid week, she developed cabin fever and decided she was going to go back to work. I was not happy about that at all!!! But she managed to go to work without incident on Thursday and Friday, so I'd say she's recovering nicely. We are totally opposite in that way... I would love a week of doing nothing but relaxing, but it pretty much drove her insane. I guess she just gets bored more easily than I. She doesn't have as many hobbies and passions. Given a week off work, I could write, write, write! I would also knit, watch one of my many movies or TV shows on DVD, play computer games, or read. She doesn't really do any of those things, so I guess it's easier for her to get bored. Anyway, it's back to work as usual for her tomorrow.

Oh! The exciting news is that I heard from one of the soldiers I wrote to! I'm going to keep writing to him. It's so great to know that my letters are making someone smile.

Well... Desperate Housewives is almost on and I have nothing else to say, so that's it for today!


  1. I was actually just thinking about how nice it would be to take a week off of work and just hang around the house doing whatever I wanted. I wouldn't be bored, either! There are so many books to read, games to play, recipes to try! I wish we could take a week and spend it together again. That time in Birmingham was so nice...

  2. lol, we were very "honey I'm home" wern't we? I loved it too.
