So soon.

I haven’t been writing lately. I have started and stopped quite a few posts because I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted to say.   I didn’t feel like I had anything worth writing about.

It is crazy how drastically different each day can be. Some day I wake up, take a long walk, swim laps, do yoga, clean the house, run errands and make dinner and still have energy to burn. Other days, like today, I wake up at 5am, get Tom off to work then fall back to … More Finding Balance
