It's been a full week, and I'm finally coming out of the stress and easing back into Normal Life once more.
A Sunday of lounging late in bed, going to Church, an afternoon party with some good friends, a heart-pounding sparring and extra practice session at the dojang, dinner with my parents and a movie with a few of the Ninjas may not sound relaxing, but it was - and it cleared my head considerably.
I have a lengthy to-do list, and I'm already well on my way toward finishing it. Feeling happy and calm and grateful and serene. Hunted some bluebells on the AT this afternoon with the boys and one of my favorite people as a reward for good behavior.
Taking deep, happy breaths.
