It's been too long since I've written. I took a break and then when I came back I had to hit the ground running. Clients to be attended to...flames to put out...messes to mop up. I'm slowly getting through it. I hope I didn't leave you hanging too long...

The break was nice. I really needed it. I can't let myself burn out like that again. I am trying to figure out ways to replenish as I go instead of just every now and then. Every now and then doesn't cut it. Taking time for yourself is so important. Gives you a much needed objective look at things. I found it funny how quickly some of my personal dilemmas were solved once I stepped away for a while. It's like putting on glasses. Huh. Gotta keep that in mind. It's always an issue of balance. Why am I not better at this by now?

I celebrated my birthday on Tuesday. My husband surprised me with a picnic of my favorite snacks in the park. It was a nice treat. Wine, goat cheese with crackers, hummus, shrimp cocktail...even ice cream with chocolate syrup. yum!

Another year older. I feel like last year was a really big learning year for me. And I mainly learned that I have a lot more learning to do. I wonder what this year will be like...

It's good to be back.
