i was outta town for a fairly long time and leading up to the trip i was mad busy. life as i knew it went out the window for at least a month. exercise, socializing, sleep and balance eluded me. my work tends to be fairly intense in bursts and then you get a little breather. gladly, my breather has arrived. i will take a mini vacation next week to lake michigan to visit a dear college friend and her family. and in the interim i am taking care of all my personal and professional admin working on getting back on a normal eating, sleeping and exercising regimen. am also circling back with friends and family to make plans and think about how i want to celebrate my impending birthday. when you are a single person responsible for every aspect of your own life, intense work really takes its toll. i’m wiped out!
