I do like my job. I promise. But it just feels like I've lost the old Caitlyn. She was creative, she got excited to go to church, didn't mind volunteering for everything, and actually had time for the gym!
I know that all sounds dramatic. I just want to feel back to normal. For starters: I'm tired. I know this has to do with the fact I've only made it to the gym two times in the month since I started my job. I finally resolved to go when they opened at 6am yesterday. As a result I had a wonderful day. This morning: I overslept. I plan to go to pilates with Gigi tonight. I'll be sore tomorrow, but it's worth it.
I've also been too tired to be creative. I used to embark on artsy projects. Last summer I made a collage that I absolutely love. I have 2 blank canvases I've been dying to use. So far, they haven't been touched.
Along with my creative endeavors went cooking. Cooking makes me happy! This Saturday night (while I was house sitting for Meribeth a.k.a. 24 hour vacation) I cooked a delicious meal. I went to Easy Way (my heart) and got some beautiful asparagus, and oranges, some delicious butter (no seriously, it was so good!) along with some of the best cherries ever! I also bought challah bread, fresh shrimp, delicious Italian parsley, grits, and set out to make dinner. If you didn't figure it out. I made shrimp and grits, roasted asparagus, and a chocolate bread pudding with an orange chocolate sauce. No recipes, just inspiration and creativity, the way I love to cook!
Lately I haven't been as excited to go to Church. The exhaustion played a role there too. I'm getting over it. But honestly, I just didn't want to go, I didn't feel like praying, and I didn't even want to read anything Church related. After our Pentecost Kneeling Vespers, I felt like things there went back to normal. I don't know why. They just did.
I'm very excited about two other things, VCS (Vacation Church School), and OCF (Orthodox Christian Fellowship.) I volunteered for VCS forever ago, but we really started planning this week. I'm so excited. Also, we're planning some stuff for OCF this summer, this makes me happy.
This is a very whiny post. I apologize. I just want things to be back to normal, and posting on my blog makes me feel pretty normal. Thanks for listening.
