learning to sleep

It seems that I have learned how to sleep. It is almost 10pm and I am starting to think about turning in for the night. What a difference a year can make--it wasn't too long ago when I was functioning on 4 hours every other night or so.

While I know that I am probably healthier to be sleeping these days, I do mourn the time I no longer have for the late night projects, or the way my brain used to work when I was in overdrive.

I have been reading a book that compares the exceedingly busy over-achiever with someone with ADHD. We both like the thrill of the brain racing around. And right now I feel in a lot of ways like the sleep is like ritalin. It is better and worse at the same time.

I am still working on my recovery plan. And the longer I am away from work the more clear it is that I really needed this break.

posting posting everywhere

I wrote a rather lengthy blog today at megs90days - so instead of rehashing all the boring parts of my life - I am going to direct you that way today. Enjoy. - Meg

Sisters

My sisters and I have always been - well, sisters. We have our good times and...not. But nothing to me is more of an indication of how we "get" eachother than how we work together when something needs to get done.

Last night my sisters and I were cleaning the kitchen after a party at my parents place. Piles of dishes, left-over food, cans, bottles, containers, garbage - it all was moved rapidly into to right place as if we cleaned up for 50 people every day. Hardly any words were spoken about getting the kitchen done, or what to do - we just moved in and around eachother like it was a dance.

I was a dance.

There are only a few people in your life that you will find that you can do this dance with. When you find them, keep them close. When they are your sisters, you are blessed.

I am blessed.
