It’s a Promise

My mood took a terrible tumble at some point during the summer. It affected everything, even my ability to think coherently and to craft intelligible sentences. Consequently I wrote very little and posted almost nothing here on my blog.

I tried, though. I kept trying to write, as evidenced by the number of unfinished posts in my drafts folder. The number has been hovering around 40, and even got as high as 45, and yet almost nothing got published.

A few weeks ago, it was like a switch turned on in my head. Suddenly I felt better. Suddenly I actually wanted to take care of myself and spend time with my children and clean my house. Is this how other people feel all the time, just sort of generally cheerful as they go about their day? Because I have to say, it’s very pleasant and conducive to getting things done. I hope it lasts.

Anyway, while I’m in this great mental state, I want to get as much done as possible. I’ve already caught up on a lot of things that I’d let slide over the last few months. Now I’ve finally got some time and energy to devote to the blog. At the very least, I’m going to clean out my drafts folder. That’s my promise to myself for today.

    I find that I survive summer and winter and actively live in fall and spring. (Yes, I recognize that the number of things I do might not be considered just surviving, but it’s more of a matter of engagement, as opposed to going through the motions. and I do all those things in an effort to not just sleep away whole months at a time.) If I’m planning on making major life changes, fall and spring are really the times to do that…

    Once upon a time, I only had to survive the winter. When did summer become such a fiend?

    For the record, you do a good job of convincing the world that you’re doing stuff, having fun, all year ’round, even though you admit to hating crowds.
