Life’s just been a little too hectic as of late and the balance has been off – and so, blogging has fallen by the wayside. Between work crunches, family visits, a cold, a hand surgery in the making, and starting solid food (!!), there’s been a lot going on and more than anything else, my brain has not been settled enough to finish a thought. As I’ve written about before, writing is kind of like a canary for balance and sanity – when the short post can’t quite find its way onto the page, it means things have gotten out of whack and it’s time for a reset.
Sometimes resets don’t come soon enough – but this weekend, we did a short venture into the country for a friend’s celebration. Going into the weekend I didn’t envision it being the respite I knew I sorely needed. It was a short trip that was not going to leave much room for normal weekend stuff nor real relaxation. But it turns out even a little bit of country goes a long way and the change in scenery and break from routine, however hectic it was, let a lot in my brain settle and I woke up this Monday morning a little amped for a busy week ahead but a little more peaceful, too.
Here’s to resuming to some normalcy, finding moments of balance in unexpected places and a good week to come for all!
