For the last two and a half weeks, I have been family guy. I’ve been spending even more time with my little girl to keep her reassured during the lead-up to starting big school. She actually started this morning and it all went remarkably smoothly – there were no tears from her and even my wife managed to control her womanly emotions.
While I, obviously, enjoyed the time I spent with her, I always get anxious if I can’t get away to actually ‘do’ stuff and I was all too conscious that two and a half weeks had passed and I’d written very little. Other than the I Sat Through That? columns for Flickering Myth, I did no writing at all. This built and built and for the last few days I’ve actually been fidgety and restless. I’d even go so far as to say twitchy – as if I’d drunk ten cans of Red Bull.
Part of me thinks that this is a good sign. Another part of me worries that I may be a bit mental.
Probably the latter.
