so, i seem to be all over the place.
i'm at home, it's hard.
i'm at work, i like it fine. i no longer float on the wings of doves to work every morning.
work sort of sucks.
i'm not with my family, and now my family is on summer.
but not i.
i'm not really able to keep up with what i want to do, or what will pay off in the long run.
i just try to get a photo a day and...
but there are high points. or maybe,
just middle points, low-ish points,
that make me realize it's not so bad, after all.
we got to see erin and fatty twice.
the dreaded full-on family reunion and grand party so much tipped the scales towards awesome.love.fun.memorable that i'm not now sure what the heck my problem was.
(as is so often the case.)
the girls come and go, and so do their moods. but i'm a little bit more able to remember the good, even as the bad is kicking and screaming its way through our family.
oh, so often it's me who is kicking and screaming my way through our family.
i may try to remedy that.
we eat very well.
i still haven't had an all out crying jag.
it will come.
and when it does,
there will be nectarines, and iced green tea, and borrowed dresses, and a five minute commute around the lakes, and little white bottoms hidden under shorts where the rest of the limbs are tan, and girls who try to help with chores (for dollars!) but still don't do them well, and a husband who doesn't quite put things in their places as i would, but who greets me with a smile and a kiss and a shrug and then we proceed with the evening.
this will all start again in the morning.
we had this weekend.
and we will all, in our own separate heads,
best wishes for a gentle week.
