I’ve decided it’s time to restore some balance to my life. I’ve put a lot of stock over the last few months towards maintaining the routine of work, school and daily life in general. As a consequence, my life seems to have tipped too far towards the mundane. The ripples from the dramatic change in my personal life–which made everything seem new for a while–have settled. Daily life is now just the same things every day, week in, week out.

I’m not exactly looking for fireworks, but now that I’ve established that this new life works–and that the kinderbesten are both fine–it’s time to focus on making it work for me. It’s time to make sure that the mundane moments are counterbalanced by moments of enjoyment.

As usual, I don’t have any specific plans in this direction. I’m sure I’ll just figure it out as I go … stay tuned!
