Oy – life. I think mine is finally feeling like it belongs to me again since returning a week ago. My digestive system is returning to normal (two weeks of heavy meat-eating in Colombia reminded me exactly why I became a vegetarian in the first place – how do people do that on a regular basis?), work started to feel real again today, and I’ve got a to-do list like crazy that I’m slacking on in other areas of my life.
Mostly I’ve been a bit anxious about not being able to talk to Darren and the fact he has been transferred and has a hearing tomorrow morning. It’s really just sympathetic anxiety – there isn’t much to worry about here – but I know he will be stressed by these circumstances and that is mainly what impacts me. In any case, the whole thing has been a little distracting.
Besides that, I recently found out one or two of my cousins and their families are coming to visit at the end of the month and so have been re-arranging my schedule around that a bit. I haven’t seen one of them in four years and the other it’s probably been eight at least…. We’re not what one would call a close family. I invited my brother up at the same time cause he was always pretty close to them when were kids as well – so hopefully that all works out and we actually manage to orchestrate some sort of family visit.
