I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like I get a bit lost. Not literally, not in a crazy existential crisis, "I-need-to-find-myself" sort of way, but more in a "wow, there's a lot that needs taking care of, I just don't have the time or energy to even think about doing more for myself than merely existing" sort of way.
So every day this week, I will allow a little time for myself, to do whatever I would like to do with it.
Of course, when you get right down to it, this entire blog is one big self-indulgence where I allow myself to do pretty much anything that strikes my fancy, so it may seem a little silly to dedicate a week to doing something that I've already devoted an entire blog to, but indulge me here, people!
Really, I should have done this project in the weeks after Espen was born, when it would suddenly be 5 PM and Nick would come home to find me unshowered, in my pajamas, not having eaten all day because I just couldn't figure out how to take care of a newborn and myself at the same time. I'm doing a lot better almost six months down the road, but could still use some help in finding ways to just be me.
Huh. Maybe I am having a crazy existential crisis?
