It’s been one of those weeks

Hi Lovely!

You know those weeks where everything seems to go wrong? That was this last week for me and Fletch. It all started when we were notified that our rent was going up significantly. Due to the raise we won’t be able to stay in our home (which is such a bummer). I was also told I didn’t get a job I had applied for at work and Fletch started having car issues. I’ve already been on edge emotionally with the holiday season so these added stresses have not been helpful. See, this is our second Christmas since my mom passed away. It was always her favorite holiday so celebrating without her is really hard. I kid you not, this morning my dog ate my breakfast burrito and all I could do was cry. It wasn’t even a big deal but I couldn’t help but cry.

The Best Medicine

Hi Lovely!

Today started off a little.. well, rough. See, I woke up after having a weird dream and was completely low. I had a dream that I was on vacation with my parents. A vacation with both of my parents. My Mom was there, frail and delicate, like the last time I saw her. We were going to dinner and she had entered the restaurant a few minutes before me. When I walked in she was laying on the floor. She must have slipped or something. I screamed for help as I ran to her. I cradled her in my arms then woke up. I was completely shaken and couldn’t fall back to sleep. In February of 2016 my Mother passed away and it has been a struggle. Holidays are really difficult. Maybe that’s why I had this dream. So, as you can imagine, Sunday started off on the wrong foot. I was in a grumpy mood and, honestly, wasn’t sure how to get myself out of it.

It’s not selfish to make yourself a priority

Hi Lovely!

This past weekend was one of rest and relaxation. It was wonderful! I very rarely have weekends where I don’t have plans so this was a welcomed change. Fletch and I slept in on Saturday, ran a few errands, and I got caught up on Riverdale. Sunday was a bit more productive. We went out for breakfast then worked a while from home. I cleaned up my office and worked on some blog stuff (as you can see here). It was nice!!

Make the most of the moment you’re in

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I spent my day with a few amazing friends at the Tacoma comic show, Jet City Comic Show. I had a blast walking around the exhibit hall and looking at all of the booths. It was a wonderful way to spend my time.

After the fun day I got home and, like most days, reflected. I thought about what makes an activity or moment fun or enjoyable.
