Back in the days before the internet I was an avid dictionary and thesaurus user. I'd open my books looking for word variations and was inevitably taken on beautiful, often synchronistic, rides. I miss those days. Now I turn to my computer's desktop thesaurus or dictionary.com, and it's not quite the same. I just looked up a synonym for lazy, because lazy is not quite how I feel, and was given the alternative "work-shy." This feels closer to the truth. Last week I turned 35 and my birthday is always an excuse to get a little melancholy--as well as "idle," "indolent," "slothful," and "inactive."
The big day (February 10th) was somewhat overshadowed by school being cancelled due to a blizzard, but the girls did a good job of playing it up. Thankfully James and I were then able to spend the weekend alone with the help of my wonderful parents, and while it did cheer my mood it made me even less inclined to want to work. Playing hooky is fun. Answering emails quite often is not. All of this is a long way of explaining, yet again it seems, why my website still isn't updated and why it's been a while since I've posted. And now, back to "work."
