BUCK UP BUTTERCUP

and leap into the ripe air

Alive

with closed eyes

to dash against the darkness."

Pulling In

Very pregnant, close to the babies being delivered, and I am feeling more than anything just kind of wanting to pull away from the world at large, be with my husband and parents, be at home. My attention and focus is so inward right now...it's really interesting...

One of the big things affected is work...I'm still trying to work and I don't know if I have a lot of work or it just feels that way (probably the latter) but it's really hard to get things done and meet deadlines (totally unlike me, I almost never miss deadlines) and to care...I'm still doing good work I think but I don't care the way I usually do, you know? Trying to wind things down as much as possible. 

And blogging...I may still post every weekday like I've been trying to do, but my schedule may become a little more erratic for a little while (and I know this is going to happen anyway after the babies come), so bear with me please and don't worry if I don't post for a day or two...

Those of you who have had children, have you experienced this lack of interest in the outside world? Was it associated with impending birth? (That's the other thing I've been doing...trying to figure out if anything and everything is a sign that the babies are about to come.)

Hope everyone is having a lovely week so far.

XOXO
