here i sit .. still on the laptop at home. doing almost nothing "crafty" ... *sigh* well, i did launder some muslin for a secret little project. maybe tomorrow i'll play with it. i have done a few 'personal' pages in a journal, working through letting go with my daughter.
do you have children? have they left home in whatever manner? my girl's almost 19, is in her 7th month away at college ... and it's just now really hitting me that she's not 5 years old anymore. nothing bad is happening ... she's just growing up & i'm just not ready. i know .. i can't stop it & she's a wonderful young woman. i know we can trust her, i know she's pretty darn smart about a lot of things ... but can't we go back to "then"?
through all of this, i'm realizing i'm still working on reclaiming me. finding me, still. do i want to do this or that or those? that resolution i made a year ago to give myself a year "off" is sort of haunting me. realistically, it's not a bad thing, any of it. a bit disconcerting at times, i guess. is this just me frustrated 'cause i can't sit at our worktable & play? i want to do & am not able to do ... all in good time, right?
oh! i did go to a land aerobics class last night. haven't heard of it? i think it's fairly new. it's aerobics aimed at people with arthritis or other limiting issues. my mom has arthritis of many sorts & needs to move more, so, off we went to class. it felt good to do something physical - it's been way too many years since i've been in an aerobics class. next week, i'm going to the low impact aerobics class ... will i survive? *lol*
