Another year, more thoughts pouring out

So after being super gung ho with writing, & doing it every single day, I just sort of fizzled with my enthusiasm. It was starting to feel forced and I wanted it not to be. I needed to get back into feeling it be organic and a flow of thought that I enjoy. But it wasn't quite that. So I stepped away for a while and chose to put it on the back burner until I was feeling it. That is just the surge I needed. I have some creative moments seeping in and sorting their way thru me in so many ways and it's exhilarating. I'm so grateful for my mister to support me in every way as I head into an endeavor that is scary and exciting all at once.  In the next couple of months, my son will officially become an adult. And that blows my mind. Eighteen years ago we were just letting people into the thoughts that parenthood was up and coming in my life. And now we're preparing for college and what's to come next after high school. Time is a crazy thing that goes so much faster than I ever thought possible. And just like that, another year has begun and in the blink of an eye, it'll just turn the pages of the calendar...

Lazily lounging

As I stretch and lay diagonally in my bed, I cozily nuzzle in. At one point, I thought it must be so late, when in reality, again, as I have thought lately, it is not. Crazy how due to it being dark so early, it makes the day seem to stretch less when really not much time has lapsed. I skipped another day of posting by accident. Last night I pulled up the page but then instead of scrawling anything, I just ended up watching the back of my eyelids. No big deal but still I've been trying my best. Someone's that's all we can do.

New technology amuses me

It'll be so nice to be up to date with everything with my new phone I got today. I'm in awe by the nuances of it all. Sometimes it really doesn't take much to amaze me. It's the little things in life. Now I'm sitting in the living room listening to the band rehearsal. It's nifty hearing new ride and chords.

Relaxation at its finest

I spent a majority of the day in bed. I really need to rotate it at some point so that there's not a high side of where I don't lay. The poor mister kept rolling over due to it. I got some creativity flowing today with a project near and dear to me. One that will launch into bigger and brighter things in this coming year. My mister is supportive and it is absolutely giving me the push to get to it.  I've got motivation, drive, and grand ideas in the works. But for now, I'll just keep laying in bed while the fireworks of excitement burst in my mind.

Wet white falling from the sky

It has been snowing the entirety of the day. The first snowfall we've had this winter. Which isn't bad considering it's New England and December. I'm just hoping it's not half as bad as it was a couple of winter's ago when we got dumped with 7' throughout it. I think I could live without that ever happening again in my lifetime. It definitely is memorable, that's for sure. But right now, although it's been snowing for so long there's only a few inches that have accumulated, not much more than the mister got as well.  And luckily I've got nowhere else to be beside my warm cozy bed for the rest of the night & into tomorrow that I intend on staying in.

Movie nights, long distance style

I love that my mister and I can make a movie date night work even when we're not together. It makes my heart so happy. We cute it up and then start and watch together. I have caught him up on some of my all-time favorites, it's amazing being able to share this with him even miles away. It's pretty incredible what technology can do. Now it's his turn to start turning me on to some of his loves of movies.

Band rehearsals rule on a Thursday night

Someone asked me if I were crazy letting the boys practice in my basement. I of course already know I'm crazy, aren't we all just a bit in our own minds, so that's besides the point. But really, I love hearing all of the moments of their songs coming up the stairs. We definitely should invest in some sort of sound proofing but if it doesn't happen then that's no big deal. Today was one of those days I was feeling deflated after work. How I often have been. I'm grateful for technology to get me to be able to get my spirits up and then them coming to rehearse was just a bonus of pick-me-up.
