Lull

I feel like I'm in a lull right now in regards to many things I normally find enjoyable. Or maybe calling it a funk would be more appropriate.

In any event I have many, many unread books in my home that I'm anxious to read and, yet, can't quite work up interest in any of them right now. Blogging? I love to write, but lately the mood hasn't struck me.

Maybe it's because I've been busy watching the kids build snowmen...

and baking gingerbread men (you really should try the recipe; it's extra delicious, though admittedly, time consuming!)...


and, of course, schooling Madeleine, which really deserves a post in and of itself, but, like I said, I'm in a lull right now. A funk. So maybe later.

"Lull" sounds a little like "dull" .. like a need for a little change of pace? Did you read the article about Racine in the NYT last weekend - how it's such a hip new art scene? Grab the kids (or not) and go check it out!

...or head further north and come visit me (and that new lil thang i've been fused to lately)!!!!

Really, though, I am the queen of the funk. I mean, besides being (obviously) funk-ay, I find myself frequently in those funks. Growth; that's what I've decided they're all about.

And lots of chocolate.

I can't take any credit for it, but "Z" got me out of a winter funk last year by enlightening me about the "green smoothie".... I didn't change anything else (ie., working out, job stuff)...but somehow, doing just that one thing, making a green smoothie in the morning, gave me the renewed energy I needed to get out of my "funk". It was really life transforming! Anyway - could be worth a shot (they are super healthy and you can make a big batch as the kids love them too!) But, as I said, "Z" deserves all the credit. And the other thing that's been helping me lately is yoga (again - a teacher "Z" used to go to - has some good videos and/or CDs - his name is Bryan Kest...and I really like the videos...again "Z" can chime in on the yoga part as well)...but that has also helped me. Anyway...those are just a few things that have helped me.....

BTW - when are we getting the next running update?????? I am eagerly awaiting a progress update - love, H
