The Tug and Pull Continues

When Sophie and I were in Texas, I was relaxed.  Sophie sensed that I was relaxed, which is part of the reason why I think she was so well-behaved.  I didn’t give her any reason to get upset, since I wasn’t tense and I wasn’t snippy.  I wasn’t thinking about work…at least not until Tuesday morning when the emails started to stream in after a long weekend.

It was back to reality on Wednesday.  Even though it was a short week, the week felt extraordinarily long.  There’s a lot going on at the office and not enough time to get everything done.  My mind is wandering again.  Wandering and plotting.  Plotting about how I can possibly find a way to spend more time with my girls.  I’ve been having this conversation with myself for what seems like a couple of years now.  How much longer am I going to continue to dream and not act?

Mom is trying to tempt me to take the leap I’ve been so reluctant and scared to take.  With a once-in-a-lifetime mother-daughter voyage.  A safari in Africa?  A trip to southeast Asia – Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos?  That would indeed be pretty incredible.  The wheels in my head are turning, fast and furious.
