I have been feeling a lot of negativity lately and I’ve decided that I have to find a way to dig myself out of this hole. I think a big part of the problem is lack of sleep, since Halia has been waking up three or four times every night for, oh, forever. It’s just repayment from dragging her all over the world and messing with her sleep all summer. Le sigh.
There’s not a lot I can do about lack of sleep right now (other than give up blogging/reading blogs, but that would just set off a whole other chain of crazy) but I can try to find a way to carve out some independent time, and I can try to adjust my mindset by giving myself a mental slap in the face when the pity party or frustration sets in.
Also, writing run-on sentences helps.
Halia figured out how to do this last week and she’s been practicing every day since then. If you want to get a real sense of what can change in 6 months, get a load of this video that I intended to post back in February:
There’s lots a-brewing behind the scenes these days; I’ll find a way to connect my fingers to the keyboard soon. I promise hope.
