restless

I'm not one of those girls who cares what other folks are doing.

Seriously, I'm not a keep-tabs person. I love the Joneses, but keeping up with them isn't so much my thing.

I only keep score when it's overtly, ridiculously obvious that I need to reciprocate. (well, unless it's hubby, sadly...for some reason I am a totally anal scorekeeper when it comes to housework.)

Lately? It seems like there is good news and big positive changes in so many lives that touch mine. And it's wonderful - I am looking forward to all of the celebrations and next steps!

But I'm also jealous.

Don't get me wrong - I'm happy with my life, with where I am.

Or I thought I was...

But, if that's the case, why am I so restless? Feeling behind/out of sorts/insecure?

Is it just the pre-season wind-up? Or is it time to really examine my life and take a hard, cold inventory?

Not sure. But I think I'll make a point of thinking and exploring.

My five:

  1. Peonies. Mine are blooming like CRAZY! (And, since we're going to move them on Thursday, it's a perfect excuse to bring armfuls of blossoms to work, right?)
  2. Tinkering and puttering...different, but still my favorite things to do.
  3. People who share books and music - I'm so often a grateful recipient!
  4. Advil. 
  5. Cooking shows.
