when you work from home and spend most of the hours of the day by yourself…. hmm…
i’m a strong introvert and really like it, most of the time.
and then there are the problems.
when i actually have a mental tussle going on (or god forbid, emotional) being in isolation is not necessarily the best thing, because i just go round and round and round. telling myself to slow down or ‘breathe’ isn’t really effective and i don’t seem to have the mental/physical connection that gets me out to take a walk or some other sort of production of endorphin answers.
the pattern of life right now is such. 5 days a week of parenting from 3-10 pm. (plus mornings, but aye..thats a slowmo/fast forward thing on schooldays) … weekends with such an amazing plethora of sexual satisfactions, i really can’t even talk about it without changing the rating of the site. back to the m-f.
one weekend a month i have the kids and there is no sex to be had that weekend.
i’ve still got my hours here during the day but i am feeling the strange, clunky feeling of ritual/repetition that i don’t like. and i’m not really sure what to make of it really.
am i missing life ‘before beau’? when my weekends to myself were filled with unscheduled time, and television bingeing and the occasional chinese food box? when i thought of something and just did it? when i went to all the games?
is it the resistance to ritual? to repetition? fear of what this particular repetition and ritual might mean? is that phase of my life actually over? have i said the right phrases to let it go? am i being a complete idiot? (that, right there, is resistance, in form of self-deprecation and self-mutilation, when taken deeper) …
am i more rebel than obliger after all? i can’t imagine that. but man, i feel the pull of the earth and the gandalf spin into ‘i shall not be moved’.
and thats a big fucking spin. and watch out. because if there is one single object in the slowly spinning world refusing the move, the whole thing crashes and burns. so hang on.
geeks know ‘resistance is futile’ but goddamnit, i am in deep.
