Dream Sleep

I feel disoriented. That was the first night I had more than 3 hours sleep continuous, in probably 2 weeks.

In any case, I was in a very different part of the world. It was cold, wet, overcast, foggy and had fascinatingly foreign vegetation....very invigorating!

I've recently been suspecting I've been on local shores a bit too long...and it has been a bit intimidating the thought that I have absolutely no idea where I will be in 5 years time. Hopefully after I traverse 3 continents in the coming year or two the mystery and anxiety of not knowing will be closer to nil.

Apart from that a much needed ME day...kid FREE! (I have recently discovered a very handy sanity-salvaging skill in my repertoire: how to tune kids out ;)

As I've piked on a girly weekend up the coast(me...antisocial??), I have a luxurious day to ME ME ME of absolutely nothing on my schedule but to veg on couch. Yay :) Consisting of 3 DVDs:
The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen), Into the Wild, The Beat my Heart Skipped (De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté)

Happy Watching and Happy Meeeeeeeeeeeee! NEED.

p.s if you enjoy reading this is in all honesty the best written and most interesting blog post I have ever come across :)

How strange to not know where you'll be in 5 years. Maybe the strange of it is being worried about it at all.

Have fun, though. I expect you'll end up where you're meant (or need) to be.
Enjoy sleeping (or movie-ing). I'll have to go look those up.

We're cooking today. I'm in a cooking mood (happens once a year). We'll see how long it lasts.

BTW! I tried your little dog, fish and cat thing - and have you ever tried any or all of those poses with a 4 year old walking by to hit your backside!? Or a baby come toddling through to throw himself on you or pull your hair in the middle of one of those poses? It doesn't work very well.
(though it's highly entertaining)

In 5 years time I figure I will be where I need to be and where I want to be. As long as I am happy and healthy and still have a sense of humour it doesn't really matter where I am.
Macs I know how you feel about lack of sleep, oh how I long for 6 hours of continuous sleep.
Sweet dreams Macs, sweet dreams. :)

Why being worried where to be in 5 years ? Be happy in the present and look forward to a new day...
