That time of year


My mind this evening fluctuates between 
feeling relaxed and overwhelmed.

I guess it will all settle down in a couple of weeks
when normal routine is back in swing.

(Then why does January
a month of doing 
nothing
feel so normal???)

With a few decisions and phonecalls
I could pull myself out of almost everything for the year,
leaving just home and family to take care of.

But would I ever have the courage?
And would I get bored?
(And some income wouldn't go astray)

Maybe one year ...?

You sound a little overwhelmed there Fiona! I hope that it settles soon once you are back into a routine again. xx
