Just Words.

Hi. It’s been a while, huh? I kinda lost my blogtooning momentum there. I’m still not sure if I have any, but I’d like to give it a stab again. Today is my first day off, in what feels like forever. What I mean by “day off” is this quiet, delicious calmness I’m experiencing. The windows are open and the curtains are swelling in a breeze. I can hear a distant plane. My neighbor’s fingertips are tapping playfully on a drum in the yard below. If I strain to hear it, I can identify the hum of I-5 South across the river.

Today is Hayden’s first day at Kindergarten. At first I was anxious and teary eyed, but now... Now I am really seeing the possibilities here. I could get used to this.
I can see how an organized life, complete with time for art and self-reflection can finally manifest. Am I right, Moms Of One? Could this be where, if I plan well, I’ll be able to focus on myself in addition to being a great mom and an OK wife? We’ll see. I have a good feeling about this...

So bear with me. I don’t know if I want to pour all of my creative time into Malady. But I do miss her. My posts may be short and not that funny. I have to time and time again remind myself that this blogtoon is for me and to not stall out on a post just because I worry what readers will think. (So guilty of this!)

Now, lets see what I can accomplish in the remaining hour and thirty-seven minutes I have before I pick Hayden up at the bus stop. I may just decide to continue basking in this calm.
