Five Things on Thursday: 6/10/2021

  1. Busy, busy week. I’m really glad I really rested last weekend. Back to back meetings, and tomorrow I’m running a training. I”ll be ready to crawl back into my bed this weekend.
  2. I’m looking forward to another restful weekend. I skipped baths for a while, and well, that was not wise. I’m all about maintaining that ritual.
  3. Hope is working and she got her first paycheck. She’s improving a bit every work day. I”m optimistic about her regulating and rebuilding and rebuilding.
  4. It’s slurpee season, and that makes me happy. I really, really love slurpees. Last night I pulled over on the way to Beau’s house to get one. The are one of my favorite parts of summer.
  5. I am *almost* really to renovate my bathroom. My bath situation has made me realize that I would soooo love some upgrades. A deeper tub, heated floor, bidet and more storage would totally improve my quality of life. Obviously, right? I know exactly what I want, but it’s a big project and frankly, it sounds exciting and terrifying.
  6. And there…I’m tapped out.
  7. I’ll owe you four!

    Thank you for any and all.You sustain me and give hope. Glad your Hope has first paycheck and is beginning a forward moving recovery. Set backs at any age are hard but her age is particularly vulnerable and a trauma history makes it even harder to think things will get better if you hold on.
    Sending wishes for another peaceable restful weekend for you!

    Never even once, in my whole life, have I had a slurpee and NOT managed to spill the damn thing on myself.

    So now I love them from afar.

    I hope you get to enjoy many unspilt slurpees this summer!
