I am finally on vacation! WOOO!!! This has been a long time coming, and I am enjoying the week of good food (that I don't have to cook myself!), uninterrupted sleep, and other sorts of relaxation. I've been spending some quality time with my much-neglected knitting needles, and have completed the front panel and started the body of this sweater, which I fell in love with the instant I saw it. I've even been able to read a book! On the beach! Out in the sunshine! I repeat: WOOO!!!
Even through all of this "relaxing" time, my mind is still working like crazy. I don't know if I'll ever truly rid myself of that "cracked out hamster on a wheel" feeling. I haven't written anything since Thursday or Friday, and you know, I actually miss it. I might even bust out MS Word and fool around with some ideas for a bit before I go to bed tonight. It's wonderful when writing doesn't feel like a chore, but just another outlet for zoning out for a while. As always, I have more ideas than I know what to do with, but I know I'll get there. Even vacation doesn't completely erase my type-A tendencies and need to organize and compartmentalize everything in my life (says she who already yelled at her husband and her father not to micromanage the entire week).
