Last day before Char and Jay come back and I have done most of my web-work, the remaining laundry and Blog-catch-up. On the one hand I am relieved, really – and yet … during the day I felt some anxiety about the future all of a sudden, which first made me, well, anxious.… Read more
These days I am mostly at home helping Char take care of Jay as per our new agreement, and which is a good thing since her hand has taken a turn for the worse.
It has been period for a period, while I have helped and she has been getting treatments, and I thought we could at least keep status quo as we have been trying to do since all of this started in September. … Read more
Everything has … slipped. Not because something catastrophic has happened, mind you, just the daily whirl of baby-care, looking for work, relationship maintenance and Everything Else.
So this is actually written on Jan 6, and therefore it is time to do a series of list posts again – although I officially hate these animals.… Read more
Char came home with Jay and they had had a good trip down south to the family, and the rest of the day was pretty much waiting and prepping for the other big trip this month – to my parents’.
Everything else is on standby, as expected.
I’ve been thinking about under what conditions a creative project equals stress, if I can’t work on it, like on a day like this.… Read more
So my head is a little bit less of a mess today … I guess it’s true (or so I’ve read somewhere) that taking a vacation can be very stressful for people who are used to work a lot.
However, this isn’t exactly a vacation, so maybe that’s just a BS-thought I need to put somewhere and get on with it.… Read more
I finally started the story I wrote about in the last blog-post, although without drawing anything. I’ve posted it on alternative-history.com, in their fiction section. I wonder if I will get any response.
I might not deserve it, since I will hardly have time to respond to or comment on other people’s writings, myself.… Read more
Went back to our apartment in the City to work because for once I had many webshop clients on the same day, but although it was a relief to get relative peace (minus the renovation of the next floor apartment), I still felt a little bad about leaving Char with Jay.… Read more
My parents came over today and it was good to see especially my mother, and there was a sense of good spirits, but also a strange feeling of … being closer to the edge.
My mother survived a second bout of cancer so far and will have to decide on follow up chemo in a few days’ time “just to be sure” – or not.… Read more
Packed the borrowed car and went back to our own apartment in the City to do a few things, including 4 hours of washing clothes in the industrial machines that inhabit our basement – a bit like Björk’s cars in The Modern Things. I’m sure both were here when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth …
But seriously, it was a fine day and sunshine when we drove back on the freeway and Jay was in good spirits.… Read more
I really don’t remember much of what I did today, so it must have been a very ordinary day – fortunately, I suppose. Because such days tend, at least for me, to give some space to think about my life and how I can make the best of it.
Well, in between feeding Jay and during cooking and shopping and so on.… Read more
