I was reading a post that erechtheus made yesterday where he mentions that he’s been blogging here for 6 years and that made me realize that I too have been plugging my words into LiveJournal now for over 6 years. . .July 13th was the 6 year anniversary and it amazes me how much a person can change in that amount of time.
In eleven short days I turn 31. In eleven short days I’ll be relaxing in a cabin in the woods with my husband and my dog, chillin’ with a glass of some good Virginia wine and, hopefully, a belly full of good food. Breathing long and deep and ready to take on the next year of my life. . .time passes much more quickly these days, I can only assume with each passing year on this planet that they get more and more rapid.
Work has been extremely hectic since I returned from my cross-country jetting. I’ve only now been able to stop and breathe a little, catch up, take pause, reflect. And I still have a fair amount to do today.
The house continues to be a stressor of sorts. We’ve submitted a signed contract to the company we selected to do our foundation repairs, but we’re anxious to get the party started. . .the crack in the wall, and now the ceiling over the front door, are getting worse by the day. . .I’d really like not to come home from work one day and find my house has sunk into the ground completely. . .I’m exaggerating a tad here, but it’s not too far from the truth.
I must adjourn to my duties here in the office. I hope today passes as swiftly as yesterday and the day before, but not in as hectic of a fashion. I could use a slightly slower pulse rate than I’ve had the past few days.
I hope to return to writing more often as time allows. I feel that I’ve been absent from life for a few weeks.
