Thoughts, stories and pictures of whatever catches my fancy. I'm a single mom, an editor, a daughter, a friend, a hopeless romantic, and an unrelenting optimist.

 

Saturday Six

1) Loved sleeping in this morning, even if it was only until 9.
2) Got tagged again in that car game - dagnabit. Plotting my future tag.
3) About to take my second walk of the day. I need more days I can do this.
4) This week I’ve been getting super tired all of a sudden midday - to the point of almost slipping out of consciousness. It comes on really fast. I don’t know if this means I’m sick or what. I don’t feel sick.
5) Another family birthday dinner tonight. I like family birthday dinners - but we are having lamb. And I’ve never had lamb. I’ve tried most things, just not that. Slightly nervous.
6) A few friends from high school are coming together later tonight. Out of towners, too. I wasn’t planning on going but people are excited and my friend from Rochester may come in - and I love her to pieces. I don’t get to see her enough, so if she does, I’m in.

Played 969 times

Just heard my friend, Rob, play this.

Moved.

I wish I could play you his, but this’ll do.

I don’t know why this made me giggle so much this morning, H, but it did, so thank you! I just keep picturing this eureka moment where I encounter a guy, lift up his giant sweatshirt and find my name written across him. Sharpie? Henna? Doesn’t matter. Found you!

I’ve been in this oversized and perfect sweatshirt all day. So I win. Goodnight.

Mental health day capped off by the girl’s away match with my mom and the Pipsqueak. Some editing, two very long dog walks - including one with my mom and Misty, tennis match and easy dinner at home.

This is the life I’m supposed to be leading.

Margie is very glad I took a mental health day because longer walks mean the chance to catch all the squirrels!

Today was one of the worst days I’ve ever had, and this picture is a completely accurate representation of that. I don’t even know where I would begin explaining all of the horribleness. 

I’m scared I can close my eyes and wish it away but tomorrow may be more the same. 

I suppose I’ll cross that bridge tomorrow. Goodnight.
