life is catching up to me. a busy week, a year of piled up stress, and the desperate need for a vacation have left me feeling so unbelievably exhausted, jaded, and overwhelmed. on top of that i haven’t been able to exercise regularly or eat as healthily as i should- which is making all this worse. i worked a 9 hour shift at my second job yesterday and was unable to sleep last night. i did take a nice little nap this afternoon, but that has worn off and it’s only 7. there’s a bunch of housework to do, plus this week there is grocery shopping, laundry, work, work, and more work. and my new hiking shoes have come unstitched in a spot. sigh. can i cry now? i really need a hug from Jesus.
on to the good notes:
- i am visiting family next weekend (hiking- hopefully the shoes will hold up).
- it looks like i’ll be going to Seattle for a week in late spring, and possibly a jaunt up to the Olympic Peninsula! i am so ready for it.
- it was a lovely day today. after my nap, i went for a little Fall drive with Elliott Smith and Sufjan Stevens. very nice.
- my new second job is fun (but let’s face, it is a job)
so that’s my life as of late.
