I feel like I’m in a very strange place in my life this month.

Due to my recent surgery, I can’t (yet) fully immerse myself in my “normal” life.

I’m not going to the gym.

I’m not traveling or on assignment.

I’m “shooting lightly” – meaning, not very much and with only one camera and one lens.

(No hauling heavy gear for awhile!)

At the same time, I actually feel great physically.

I might be the only woman on earth who found an abdominoplasty easy.

I don’t know quite what to do with myself.

If I felt terrible, I’d be content reading or watching movies.

Instead, I’m restless and pacing.

I don’t *want* to do restful things.

(I also can’t stand being in my own house anymore. ┬áIt’s SO quiet without Mocha to keep me company.)

I’m trying to use the time wisely …

I’ve been taking care of boring chores like getting my car serviced, and having a few well check-up appointments.

But …?

I’m going stir crazy.

Maybe I’ll drive up to L.A. one day this week and take in a museum or two?

When I’m nonstop busy, I always want a few quiet days.

But, in truth, quiet days bore me to tears.

    Yeah, the whole empty nest thing will do that to you. Whenever Beloved’s out of town on business and The Young One is at school, I relish the peace and quiet for all of about 36 hours, then I become bored out of my mind.

    I’m SO glad to see you say, “I actually feel great physically.” HOO. RAY.

      It’s refreshing to have a surgery go “easy” for me Jan.
      I think everyone’s been amazed at how fast I’ve bounced back.
      My nest will only be empty until this weekend …
      I really should appreciate it more than I do.

      : )

      Thanks Stacy.
      I’ll think about taking advantage of that!
      Not stupid at all – stay-cations are awesome!
