Walnut is dancing up a storm right now! I swear I can almost HEAR his/her movements they're so intense. I hope this isn't a sign of ADD or disdain for sleep. :)

The Z-R household is having a bit of communications breakdown right now. I'm going to try not to disect it right now because a) the person sharing the breakdown is who should be hearing any comments about it and b) I am tired and self conscious of being negative in my journal entries.

Am having a hard time getting going this morning. I rarely – make that never - take a “screw you” attitude towards work but am getting very close right now/today. Mondays are always problematic for me, though. I am glad to finally be learning how to balance my own expectations of myself with reasonable external expectations – its taken a while to do this – about 8 years, actually. I wonder what I would be doing/where I would be if I had learned this five years ago. Honestly, I’d probably still b...
