We all do it. Individuals, families- we all have to juggle a bit. Even those of us who’ll never make it as entertainers.
Girls manage school work, netball, gaelic football, soccer, ballet, Irish dancing, choir- and there’s always something else tempting one or other of them. Of course, a certain amount of taxiing is required to get them to various activities.
Spurs Fan manages school work (so much more than class work), most of the taxiing, grocery shopping, and cooking. He’s given up some of his coaching activities, leaving more time for… school work.
I lie about, take Jake for walks and try to manage my energy levels. Sometimes that’s easier said than done. There are days I’m all abuzz, joining dots and feeling rather together. There haven’t been too many of those days recently. I’m tired and apathetic. I feel a bit defeated. I’m not sure why.
It could be long, cold, wet January. It could be just time for a low mood to settle for a bit. It could be that some things I was quite hopeful about are proving difficult, and my skin is thin enough to feel that as a personal failing. (Self obsessed, me?)

I’d rather be juggling ideas than low moods.
I think I need big skies and a beach.
Until it passes, I’m enjoying this as my current earworm- just to make me feel good
