Yule time is hectic on its good days. This year is no different. I have a list a mile long of stuff to get done now that Mom is still healing from surgery and the holidays add even more to that.
Lately I’ve been too exhausted for anything more than the list and sleep. And time with Jack. I’m not ashamed to say Jack has been my anchor in the storm over the past few weeks. He’s demanded I find time to play with him and then he chooses relaxing things I like to do, which we do together.
On a different note, I finished the afghan I was working on, binding the spell to it finally. There’s a little less weight on my shoulders now. I think I’m going to start crocheting amigurumi and integrating various spellwork into them. Small projects I can do quickly, while also a relaxing pastime. The first will be Bendy, for Jack, a sentinel against the dark. I mean, really, what better way to guard a child at night than with the help of a demon?
And my journal. I’ve got to stop skipping entries. I feel better when I write this, every time, and I should take the twenty minutes to work on it. I’ll do better.
