St. Paraskeva's re-opens tonight, after a lengthy postpartum break. For anyone unfamiliar with me, this is my icon studio/workshop. Blog link on the side bar, but warning, hasn't been updated for 6 months. Give me a day or two, then check it out.
It is funny how with each of my babies, I am in a different world for just about 6 months, then I begin to reclaim what remains of my previous self. Lo and behold, Melanie is 6 months old today. Yesterday I went for a good long walk. I began a real honest to goodness novel (The Accidental Tourist), and today all my kids are finished with school, and we are going to get the icon studio in order. I still can not fit into my old clothes, but I do see some hope that things are getting ready to get back to normal. Or maybe I am just used to the new normal, and it feels comfortable, but either way, I think I am re-emerging. I just hope that my writing brain returns. I have lots churning in my heart and mind, but can not seem to organize my time and thoughts to put them into writing. Soon, maybe.
