Creativity? What's That?

Well hello there! I'm somewhat surprised that you're still here, even though I haven't been around much for the past month. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

The new job is going well. It's crazy, exhausting, busy, demanding, and challenging but, wow, am I learning a lot! Talk about great preparation for nursing school! The physical activity of this job is seriously kicking my butt. My body feels like I've been beaten when I wake every morning. Perhaps a new mattress would help?

Anyway, I do like the job. I don't like the pay. I knew going in how much of a pay cut I'd be taking and am wondering how crazy I must be to voluntarily slash my income like this. Granted I'm paying for health insurance and that cuts some of the take home pay. I wonder, though, how finances are going to go over the next couple of years, especially with the mounting medical bills.

As for Anime, a rheumatologist in our area has accepted her as a patient. The downside is that we can't get in until April. The initial appointment is not one that can be easily scheduled as I've been informed that we can expect to be there for most of the day (appointment time is 8 AM). I'm still looking into rheumatologists outside of our area.

I feel as if my creativity has abandoned be as of late. My desire to write, or even dream, has fled for the time being. If you see it, send it back my way would you please?

Keep it up at your job! I'm sure your hard work is being noticed, if not appreciated!

I'm a bit concerned about my own creative juices; I have 50 christmas cards to make and i haven't even started yet!

I'm so glad you found a specialist in the area to take Anime. Keeping the good vibes coming your way. Don't worry about the creativity, when things slow down a little, it will find it's way back when you least expect it.

I saw your creativity curled up in cozy yellow blanket having a snooze nested in the branches of a big, beautiful, old tree. She'll be back after a little bit of rest and she'll be bringing some great dreams with her too.

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes :)

I'm so glad you're liking the job - that is major!

Sorry your creativity has hidden under a rock but it might just be survival instinct - you have a hell of a lot on your plate right now.

But don't forget to foster creativity you have to nurture yourself!

I hear ya! I'm in the midst of a creativity halt as well.
Also wanted to thank you for your wonderful and supportive comment on my blog today.

I am right there with you... some days are so crazy and I think, wow, that would make a great post, but the actual sitting down and writing it seems like so much more effort than it's worth. So, you have my support. So glad you found a specialist, but it does suck to have to wait that long.
