Like Sands Through the Hourglass

…these are the Days of [My Life].

Just can’t seem to shake the funk. The days all seem to run together and I never feel like I get any time to do anything. Work has been pretty steady with frequent extra hour opportunities, for which I am grateful. BUT between work, school (I have mentioned I went back to school again?), being a taxi to one of my kids and just all the other everyday run of the mill bs I feel like I can’t get ahead and I certainly can’t relax.

I’m not really sure what I was thinking. Even this morning I got up with the hope that I could make some time to come here and mess around with some things and next thing I know I have a call for extra hours at work again.

I just feel like I’m losing touch with myself and I don’t know whether it’s the current living situation, the season/weather or just my broken head. I’d like a break to focus on things besides hustling and paying bills but, alas, it does not seem to be in the cards at the moment.

All that just to say, I’m still here,  just swamped.

I’m going to have to put a more concentrated effort towards finding time for me and me alone before it’s too late.
