Good things
Lilacs, pied wagtails, full-on spring, warm days, cool breezes, a long weekend right now and another one next weekend (!), Late Night talk show hosts that articulate everything I feel about my home country right now, singing Africa in choir

Not so good things
Pinched nerve, lack of motivation, mixed emotions that threaten to overwhelm me, not being able to sit at the computer without pain, unfriending people on Facebook because I just can't take it anymore, end of choir term and not knowing if our choir will continue in the fall

Looking forward to
Midsummer week in Germany, new potatoes, another Michigan summer, seeing my mom/sister/brother/relatives/nieces/nephews/in-laws/friends

Avoiding thinking about
Leaving Martin in Michigan, what my lack of motivation is really caused by, unhappiness, loneliness, anger, sadness

I am just a bundle of overwhelming idiocy right now and I'm well aware of it. Is this what a mid-life crisis feels like? SO CLICHE.

mood: tired

MId life crisis- maybe, but more likely starting to face the empty nest syndrome. Neither is easy, but you'll survive and find lots of things to fill the time. Like your Mom you might find time for art again, or writing or.... fill in the blank!

UGH, empty nest syndrome...sucks!

I can empathize. I can't really think about my kids moving away (!) especially to another country. I can't imagine them not being here. Ugh. I know it will come. I just don't want to think about it.

I am sending you big hugs and lots of love!
