I’m feeling stuck. I come here to write, to share, and I just look at the screen. It’s been an intense couple of weeks. The end of a semester. A dear friend visiting with a heavy heart. A week of being “on” at all times with the boys. Not enough sleep. Deadlines, still, always. This is my “vacation” time and I’m struggling with deciding what to tackle on the infinite to-do list that has been accumulating while I’ve been studying and writing. Hard to give myself permission to just read Bossypants and nap.

Do you feel like you can really, truly, unwind and relax in your own home? Tell me how you do it. I need some instructions.
