Of course that’s the advice. I’m exhausted, grieving, everyone is on school holidays- what else would I be doing but resting? Well, it seems I’m ignoring all advice and doing things. I want to ‘do’ something. Achieve something, anything, after months of blurred bewilderment and stressed reactions. I’m looking for distraction. My inner control freak is asserting herself.
I’ve hated our fireplace each of the nearly 12 years we’ve lived here. It’s being replaced before the end of the month. I’ve cleared (to the attic to start with, but to charity asap) about two thirds of my books. I’m considering paint colours and flooring choices. Spurs Fan is really looking forward to going back to work. When term and coaching seasons start, he hasn’t time to do extra housey stuff. He is happy about this.
The trouble will really start if it turns out that my inner control freak has decided to take on Herself’s ‘always rearranging the house’ notions. I don’t expect to ever have the inclination or energy for that, but isn’t life full of surprises?
