Isolation

I remember being told about how isolated it is being a stay-at-home mom. Normally I don't feel that way, but today, for some reason, I do. Obviously, because I usually don't have time to blog at all, let alone twice in one morning. But my husband is skiing and the kids are playing, and I'm feeling a little blue. I think writers feel this way often, as well. After all, we spend most of our time before our computers (or spiral notebooks) writing down our creativity...and our interaction with others is limited. No water cooler at our office :) So I seemed to have combined two of the lonliest professions. And today I feel it. I haven't heard from any publishers or agents today...no mail yet...no e-mail. Because of spring break, most of my friends are busy -- and I'm not. Back when I was teaching, before kids, I couldn't wait for spring break...today, in all honesty, I'm dreading it.

Well, pity party over. I wouldn't change a thing, of course. I love my kids, and I love writing. I know I'm blessed to be able to stay home and do both. I'm off to find a park so the kids can play, and I know the sun will shine -- or not -- and life will continue. And tomorrow is another day.

Hoping a nice balance of isolation and interaction for each of you, my friends.
