Hi guys, miss me? I hope you had a wonderful Easter. Mine was nice, full of traditions and sadly a lot of rain too.
Last week we lost the internet connection at home. That meant no computer or blogging, no TV and no phone connection.
At first I panicked I felt that everything was crashing in around me. Like my moving train had come to a screeching halt and that was not good. And then I just let go….
I stopped fighting it and started to enjoy this quiet moment, this forced inactivity, this feeling of being unplugged.
For days in a row I was in bed before nine with a book and usually fast asleep by ten.
I guess I needed a little break. I am under a lot of stress at work right now. I have an important project that I need to finish before the end of April, and a lot is riding on it. And it is bringing out all my old insecurities and anxieties. So to say that it is draining is an understatement.
Of course at first I was sure I could do it all. Work during the day, even put in a lot of extra hours and then blog at night and by some miracle be able to work in enough projects over the weekend so I’d have content.
It worked for about two weeks. And then the internet broke and I broke with it.
And I decided that that was okay. That we all would still be friends when I was ready to return. That you all understand that every once in a while our real lives take over and blogging has to come second. I’m still not sure when I will have the next project finished to share with you. I hope I’ll be able to put in some project time this weekend. But the week isn’t over and I don’t know how much my work will take out of me the next days. So no promises here.
So tell me! How are you all doing? Is life as crazy over at your place too? Are you still able to keep juggling all those balls at the same time, or are your dropping them here and there too.
What spinning plates are you trying to keep from falling?
