Random thought: does anybody else have a crush on the "FreeCreditReport.com" commercial guys?
The 1 hand + 1 finger typing is getting easier. I miss being able to watch the screen while I'm typing because watching the keyboard reminds me I'm putting my thought down, rather than just watching them flow onto the screen automatically. It's distracting. Plus my hand gets tired easily. It seems to have reached a healing plateau, maybe because I started using it before it was ready. I think now that I did crack a bone, maybe two so I'm keeping it braced. Forcing myself to give it the time it needs, no matter how cranky DH gets for having to do the things I normally do, like cantaloupe chopping and opening jars and doing dishes. Actually, he's been pretty good about it, and the kids have, too. they've been doing most of the dishes, so I bought Abby a pretty pink sponge to fit her small hands.
It's only partly because of the hand that I haven't been online much. I'm having one of those shifts in consciousness that comes every so often where I reassess my interests. The kids are old enough, the marriage is stable enough, and I have no worries at the moment. Oh, I have plenty of things I could worry about, like having no health insurance, but I'm tired of worrying about those things. I've got it pretty good here in my little corner of the world. Maybe it's the bad economic stories I keep seeing on the news, or maybe it's because I have a decent car, but for some reason I don't feel as poor as I did a couple of months ago. It's a nice feeling.
Ready to find a way to make some money, get in shape, make a difference in other people's lives. I'd like to do all those things in one activity. I'm trying not to worry about the financial aspect, instead trusting that enough money will be there if I find my calling. So what do I enjoy doing? Where do my natural talents lie? What are my limitations? Those are important questions I need to answer, and I may explore that in the next post.
