I met a girlfriend for drinks tonight. I think the last time I did something like that it was 2009. These days are so strange, trying desperately to identify with my new role as newly un-pregnant. I wonder how I appear to people.

This morning I woke before the sun, well before anyone else was awake in my house. I made myself a quiet cup of coffee, my favorite kind of coffee, and sat and read and readied myself for the day. I took a pilates class at the gym. I put on makeup after I showered. These things aren’t things I used to do, but I’m pretty sure they are things I do now.

I can’t for one second sit still. I must always be going, doing, making, moving. There is no idle time. There is only time to go, do, make, move. My house hasn’t been this clean in ages!
