Monday through Friday, with the exceptions of sick days, vacation days, and holidays, I sit here. I eat breakfast. I do job-related work. I drift through Facebook. I eat lunch. I check news outlets. I read blogs. And I write my blog.
It’s as an ideal situation as it isn’t. As much as I look forward to my breaks from job work, it’s sometimes hard to make the transition. Also, I work at another office twice a week with a much less private setting. Sometimes I’ve blogged from there but it’s not enjoyable.
My stress levels, I’ve noticed, have been coming down recently. I know a huge chunk of it has to do with an increase in income from Ex. It’s sad that connection still exists. I’ve tried legal measures to have it resolved but apparently his employer is ignoring the Income Deduction Order.
I think another thing is the summer. The longer days mean later bed times. I’m just not as rushed and pressed to cook and get everyone to bed. They’re not waking up much later than during the school time, but for some reason I’m not as crazy about it.
The decrease in stress levels is freeing up certain parts of my brain which is also causing a jam of different sorts.
I’m overwhelmed with ideas.
So, many times my experience has been that I sit right there, and don’t know where to begin. I idle. I make things up. I think of new things. I do something half-heartedly and have another flash of inspiration.
Something’s brewing in me and I need to get it out. I’m destined for something bigger than what I’m living. I feel it moving in the current but can’t exactly pinpoint it.
This post has been inspired by Calliope‘s Blog Summer Camp. I’m not sure if I’ll be participating all summer but today’s prompt resonated with me. If you’re here from Summer Camp, welcome to the blog. Here are a few of the more recent posts readers have been enjoying:
