So, I talked to The Boy, and it's decided...I'm signing up for my very first ever creative writing class. He's going to hang with Baby Spatula (I don't believe in "babysitting" your own kids), and give me some time to do this thing that I think really calls to me. So, yay!
Meanwhile, I've been thinking a lot about the balance of life. Like...we only get so much time, and there are ALL these things you want to fit into that timeline. Career, school, baby(ies?), partnership with spouse, fulfilling personal activities, friendships, time to actually enjoy it and watch it and participate in it. What a battle! Anyway, no finished thoughts on that, but it seems like things just get thornier every day.
