Things are going along pretty normally right now around the house. Much of my time has been focused on work and church-related activities, which is a nice refreshing rebalance of my priorities. I am learning to leave stress at work when I go each day, and using the rest of my time to focus on my family and helping others. Unfortunately, due to a fairly demanding Lenten season of church activities, I have not made it to the dojo as much as I would like. This week is my anniversary and my next-to-last week of That Man Is You on Friday morning, but after that I hope to make a few workouts before the end of the month.
Eve is getting much bigger and more active. She finally broke her cycle of hovering near the statistical bottom of the weight chart, and is just on the verge of learning how to walk. She had a minor meltdown at church today, those are usually very rare and far between. We think it was a combination of being too tired and some diaper rash that she’s picked up over the last few days. Or teething. It could also be teething.
Speaking for a moment about my 2012 goals… my book-reading goal has been struck with some attention-deficit disorder. I have several books underway, opting to read a few pages each night. One is close to being completed now, and before long I will have strong motivation to finish my guitarbuilding books since I will be starting on a few of those projects as soon as the warm weather is consistent. The short of it: expect to see some progress soon.
I am trying to get into the habit of blogging again, but honestly participating in life is taking the place of actually writing about it. Please excuse any long expanse of whitespace here, know that I’m out in the world doing interesting things and I will eventually return here to write about them as time allows. It is often much more convenient to use social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, etc) to provide a day-to-day view of what I’m doing. More soon!
