It’s been a long week. Or week and a half. A long something. It was good to get a chance to see my family again after seeing them as recently as July, but of course I wish it had been under better circumstances. Since I’ve returned I’ve been exhausted. I don’t really know why, but I’m hoping it stops soon so I can resume life and do things like laundry and cleaning my apartment (Isn’t the excitement overwhelming?).
I’d also like to truly start the 21 Day Fix. I stumbled across it via a friend who is a Beachbody coach, and although I’m usually wary of anything where friends try to sell you stuff, this seems like a pretty straight forward exercise and nutrition program. I’m really looking forward to starting it, but my back has been giving me major problems these past few days and exercising seems like a not so great idea right now. Sigh.
Work is also kicking my ass. I was only gone for five days and it feels like forever. I’ve got to get a handle on my anxiety so I can move forward. I think I’ll feel better after my workshop is over….only one more week to go!
In final news, the CBC Creative Non-Fiction long list was finally posted. Sadly I am not on it. Oh well. I submitted a piece about my father and sister that was ultimately about the aboriginal community and addiction issues. So while that didn’t go anywhere, I did pull off a very short story that I might enter into the CBC Fiction contest this coming fall/winter. I wrote it based on a story starting prompt and actually liked it! That almost never happens!
So I’m back in the real world again folks. Stay tuned.
