It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and subsequently, there’s a lot to include. Which means it’s time for a snapshot!
-Tee and I travelled to North Carolina early this week to visit our new baby nephew! He is two months old and precious. (We saw the rest of the family, too – but the baby was the STAR of our visit.)
-My reading rut is over, I think! And weirdly, I’ve been brought back into reading by a nonfiction book – Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election That Changed Everything For American Women, by Rebecca Traister. I’m usually not into nonfiction at all; I enjoy the fantastical elements of fiction, escaping into an imaginary world. But the RBG book and the Traister book have both been fabulous. (There will likely be a blog post about this in the future.)
-My job continues to be pretty crazy. BUT I’ve been trying to impose self-care guidelines for myself! Not allowing myself to go into to the office at five in the morning and trying not to bring work stress home with me. Additionally, I’m trying to get back to my zen work mode – the mode when I acknowledge the fact that I can only do what I can do. I do not have the capacity to ever, ever, EVER accomplish everything on my to do list. I just have to work hard every day, and then come home and live my life until it comes time for me to work hard again tomorrow. Like you do.
-What else? OH – I’m addicted to Trivia Crack, a game I downloaded on my phone. Like, so addicted that I understand the word ‘crack’ being in the name. It’s really been helping with my anxiety of late. Definitely NOT my healthiest coping skill – but it’s super-fun. AND EDUCATIONAL.
There’s been a lot going on lately, and not a ton of time or energy to write. Hopefully that will change.
