I am not sure what has gotten into me but I feel a bit wrung this week. We all have a terrible case of spring fever and I am sure that must be part of it. Normally I get restless this time of year; tired of being cooped up all winter long. For some reason this year I feel listless instead. Everyday I make myself a list of all things I should be doing but I can't seem to get myself to the doing part.

I have not even shown you my Feb. finished projects yet. I finished a pair of socks for Sebass, they were small and quick and just what I needed. I have been plugging away on the lace shawl but I did not get it finished as I had hoped I would.

The lace is fun to knit and looks pretty but it takes focus that I don't seem to have right now, I am doing better with fairly mindless knitting. With the lace I am finding that I can't watch T.V. or talk with the kids while I knit. I do better with it if the house is quiet and I can just sit uninterrupted for a while. You can imagine how often this happens around here, so I pick away at when I can and try to work on a more relaxing project when the house is busy.

Paul has been working his bumm off at the office this last week. Working from 7 in the morning until 8 at night. He is trying to get more patients on the DRX machine. I have been doing my part with full time kids and part time work.

I have been reading "How to Raise your Spirited Child" by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, I am looking for more tools to put in my "mom" tool kit for working with the kids and their behavior.

Sebastian and I have been working a lot with his personal space. I feel like his personal space is so small that he tends to get right up into and invades the space of others. I am trying to teach him to hang back a bit and watch other kids play before he jumps in. He is such a physical kid that he intimidates other kids with his excitement and explosive energy. He seems to be settling down a bit with what we are working together. I am trying hard not to single Sebastian out so we are working on this as a family, we are all doing better than last week.

It is so much work trying to be a good parent, is that why I feel so worn out? I think I will call for a pizza and crack open a beer for dinner tonight.

What is a DRX machine? I think I'm going to have champagne and strawberries before I even look at my lace project.

I have yet to start a lace project. Still working on socks and afghans.

Kelly, have you tried a grounding excersize? Try to center yourself in your head. Take a few minutes to run some earth energy too if you can. I think that might help bring you back into focus. Bring some cosmic energy the top of your body may help to pick up your energy level. It sounds like you are a little out of your body. Remember; earth energy makes the body feel real, solid and stable. Cosmic energy allows the body to change. But you already know these things.
