At this time of year, I always find myself bogged down with work, feeling restless and yearning for…I’m not quite sure what. Great news of some sort? Travel? New shoes? Pie? I don’t know, exactly. But lately, any break in the daily routine seems more welcome than usual.
Is it just me? Or do you, too, have a case of the doldrums or spring fever or whatever it is that’s ailing me?
Here are some things that have given me a lift the past few weeks, and not in any particular order:
*My children’s birthdays
*Discovering a new local restaurant and eating dinner there three times in 9 days
*Arugula-Mango-Walnut-Goat Cheese salad at said restaurant
*Blessedly good news from a doctor about a loved one
*Buying something nice for my husband just because
*“The Real Housewives of New York”
*Sitting in the March sun beside a firepit on Long Island with friends and beers on Saturday afternoon
*A wedding shower
*U2 Tickets going on sale this morning
*Seeing a middle school musical, Once Upon a Mattress
*Seeing a high school musical, A Chorus Line
*Writing my new thriller
*Homemade cream puffs
*Encouraging news on a secret project I've been working on
How about you?
