The Ringmaster

It’s been a week since I cranked this three-ring-circus up again. It’s been a mixed week. I don’t know that I’ve hit the goals that I set, because this is really the first chance I’ve had to sit down and look at them. I’ve almost been able to get the exercise I need.

I have nibbled wantonly, mostly  because there’s more junk in the house than usual and my husband and son aren’t doing their part to get it eaten. If it’s not gone by midweek, I’m just going to chuck it. I’d do it now, but waste is a big anathema around here.  Still, they’ve been warned.

Still I feel essentially like I am more or less in control. Occasionally the elephant steps out of line, the dogs are rambunctious, the clowns don’t cooperate and of course you can depend on the diva for at least one hissy fit every few days. Some nights the ringmaster is too tired to even weep. But still, it’s up and running, my life.

We’ll see where we are again next week.
