Outside my window the coyotes are yipping up a storm. We live smack dab in the middle of the city and yet share the neighborhood with coyotes, pheasant, deer, rabbits, hawks, skunks, raccoons, turkeys and even a golden eagle. Ah yes, life in the city.
I'm tired...physically and emotionally...drained. Vacation is a couple of weeks away but not soon enough; Sam and I are taking one week off and heading south with friends and our RV trailers. I haven't had two weeks off since 1998; tried once in 2003 but had to cut it short and return to the office to handle a problem. My workplace has me giving serious consideration to the idea of looking elsewhere for employment...more of the same and its never good; Sam would like nothing better than for me to go somewhere else as he's been wanting me to quit for the past seven years. Last week my boss announced she's resigning as she accepted a different job, no real surprise since everyone knew she was looking. She always told me her goal was to leave the company before I did; looks like she reached that goal.
Blah, blah, enough about that. It's boring, but the bottom line is my mind is preoccupied on many things and I'm lacking inspiration to write, either in my journal or comments in others. It seens I've lost my muse; temporarily I hope, but each time I sit down to write my thoughts slide away from me, evaporating into recesses of my mind where daily thoughts once flowed with life. Feeling numb and untouchable...outside myself and yet living within something all too familiar. Went off the cymbalta a couple of months ago when I started feeling vibrating sensations every time I moved. It was a little too scary so I told the doc no more medication.
I've taken lots of photos the past few weeks but have little time to post them or upload them to Flickr. This is a busy time of the year for us and good luck finding us home on weekends, which is why I haven't done an Easy Sunday entry...I'm just not home to do it.
I've been up long enough and need to get some sleep. Tomorrow's not a day to be dragging, as always I need to be bright and alert, whether I feel that way or not.
