New Mattress Awe

of us
smooshed up
in new mattress awe
like babies
wrapped in christ
laughing at elves
slipping secrets

A week of too many moments

As BD and I were falling asleep last night, I said "this is the moment I've been waiting for all week..." He of course asked why?  Was is the fabulousity of previous moments...well it was--but it was more...it was the fact the week was over.

I rarely anticipate weeks being over..I may wish for a certain event or day to come to an end--but the entire week was overwhelming for me.  Work was running me over just the mere day-to-day events..then it seemed my extra-curricular events overlapped too:

Without whining too much I..
-polished up 2 bellydancing routines for Saturday
-read approximately 220 poems as a judge for a poetry contest
-taught yoga to a fourth grade class and was nervous about how the classroom setting.
-applied for online work

Then of course, be a mom first. My youngest got sick mid-week and with work it was too much to take off all day.  She wasn't puking so I didn't feel horrible, but I felt bad...I miss being "just" as mom at times.  It's very difficult dividing up your time, day, life...I know most of us know that--I am whining now.

On top of these small events, my dryer died and I need to find the warranty-ha...and my dog went to the vet for a split toenail.

All of this is SO nothing in the big picture..I know this 100%--but by Saturday night, after dancing and just being With BD--I was so thankful last week was behind me.  I was able to let go and just RELAX...my sleep was absolutely terrific.  And that was why I was happy for that moment..because it was a week of too many moments.  Seemed to be an underlying theme for most people last week--so cheers to this coming one!

So this week has been one of those back-to-spring weeks...

I want to say I don't know what it is about this time of the year and bringing back life to the slowness of winter, but I do know for myself--it's the sunshine.  The weather here has been warmish, sunny...my tulips, daffodils and trees are just taking off.  I love the contrast between the mauvish redbud flowers and the lime green shoots of the willow tree.  I'm in love with spring right now.

The walking in the sunshine and holding my heart high, opening all around...it's such a feel good moment.

Life keeps truckin and I'm pretty sure I know where my path is leading--but can't get too attached to the positiveness of that fact yet...

So...yoga this morning in the Saturday sunshine..gonna watch my baby girl at her "track" meet and just enjoy the day.
