Random Thursday Musings

I’ll be traveling soon and have been busily prepping for that at work and home, which has left little brain space for much else it seems. Everyone keeps asking me if I’m excited, which of course I am, but I’ve been trying to temper my enthusiasm so I don’t get too anxious. This is something I’ve wanted since I was 7 years old, so that fact that it is now happening, seems almost unreal to me.

The exhibit at work that opened a few weeks ago has received a lot of great reviews and attention which after working on it for about 6 months, always makes me happy. It’s fitting that I get my vacation after it opened since this time around, the exhibit really felt like this huge thing I was creating since it involved more research and out of the box thinking than past exhibits I’ve done. That feels good to me- more than the good reviews.

I sort of threw out the  house ‘to do list’ about a month or so ago, but perhaps it’s the start of warm weather ( finally!) in Southern New England that has me making a mental list of items to accomplish after I return from Amsterdam. It’s sort of a feeling of wanting to do things because I enjoy them combined with a feeling of being sick at looking at peeling paint or water stained curtains. I think knowing I can do them at the pace I want without pressure or guilt is a new feeling too.

I’m realizing I don’t give myself enough credit often for many things. Maybe my worst habit next to procrastinating.

I have been obsessed with avocado lately and had one the other day at lunch that was at its peak- practically licked the inside of the skin to get as much of it as possible. That might have been TMI.

Will be quiet on here for the next week or so, but I promise updates and photos from vacation ASAP!
