Life has been busy.
Any down time is a rarity these days. Those quiet moments that I try to do at night? Non-existent because I’m so exhausted at night that I curl up in my bed and fall asleep, screw the cleansing and calming of my mind. For now.
I think that’s why I’ve been writing less, and I’m not talking about this blog, I’m talking about my journal writing. I’ve been missing it, yet cannot compel myself to put pen to paper. My mind is just not focused right now. And, I have a lot of things I need to sort out. I need to get focused. Soon.
I am looking forward to next week. I have some random days off, meaning I have a couple of days off during the week but not in a row. My cousin and her husband are driving up from South Carolina so I want to spend a day with her. I originally was thinking of visiting her during the Civic day long weekend, funny enough, and I had a few other places that I was contemplating, but after some thinking (damn the thinking) decided to delay it.
My cousin comes into town every few years. Generally, she comes to stuff her face with as much Chinese food as she can without exploding. She also shops till she drops, stuffing her car with as many Asian delicacies as is possible to pack into her vehicle. Its quite hilarious to watch. I remember one year she came, I think it was about 15 years ago or so when Chinese food was rare in the South and she had packed her car with so much crap it was overflowing. She even used “secret” compartments in the van she was driving at the time to hide her food from the Customs officer. She owns a Chinese restaurant so she buys the stuff half for the restaurant and half for herself.
It’ll be good to see her. My nephews are excited to see her too, both for the first time, so I know there will be funny moments. It should be lots of fun, and I need this break from the norm (i.e. craziness) right now, so its a welcome change.
