I’m here. I’m not traveling. But I haven’t spent any quality time with Sophie and Chloe (not to mention their Papa) since last weekend. I’ve been working almost nonstop since Sunday evening. Even my sleep has been interrupted by thoughts about everything other than sleep.
Needless to say, I have been having flashbacks to my former life as a lawyer. The flashbacks are not good. The only good news is that I think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. I just won’t see it until January. Not a long time in the scheme of things, I know. But right now it seems like an eternity.
There are a lot of demands right now. Work, family, friends, house…and not enough time to give the latter three the attention they deserve because the first one has been getting way too much attention for way too long.
My travails are not uncommon, I know. Under normal circumstances, that awareness helps keep things in perspective. Lately, however, my perspective is a bit skewed. Calgon, take me away!
