If we were having coffee and you asked me how I was doing, I’d tell you that I’m exhausted – more physically than anything else.
No, there’s no need for violins, but let me moan for a bit, if I may! We’ve recently shifted home and I’m simultaneously trying to set up my new office space. Trying to sort out stuff – my parents’ and ours – minimize and organize – is exhausting. The house is a duplex one, so trudging up and down the steps can be tiring too.
Then, both our dogs have been taking turns to be ill.
Worst of all, the hot flashes of menopause take their toll. They seem to hit me in the middle of the night and keep me awake.
There! I’ve got it all out now and can turn to better things!
We have so much to be grateful for – not in the least that we have each other, enjoy overall good health and a good lifestyle. We don’t really want for anything and are happy with what we have. Our dogs are a joy remind us to laugh and smile.
I am acutely aware of the fact that I need to do a lot more towards getting fit, but the demons still hold me back from being consistent.
I also need to spend a lot more time reading and writing.
Most of all I need to spend a lot more time in reflection.
Here’s hoping that the rest of October better for for us.

How are you doing?

Good luck in your new space. It sounds like you have a handle on the “what has to get done”. It just doesn’t have to get done in a day.
Oh dear ! Troubles never come singly do they? And those hot flashes – so annoying ! Hand in there Corinne ! These days will also pass
Best of luck with your new space! I’d love to see some photos of your dogs 🙂 Thank you for the coffee!
Oof. I’m always happy to be here for a bit of moaning and groaning time — we all need it! I hope the settling in starts to take shape, and you’re able to find the time, space, and energy to do some of those other things you need/want to do. I keep trying to find ways to carve out time for reading and writing – they help me so much when I do them, but it’s hard to push myself to take those first steps.
You can do it!

Moving house is one of the most stressful things in life and it’s up there with death, marriage and divorce. Sorry to hear the dogs have been unwell. Hope you have a lovely October and good luck with the new venture!
