I really took the last couple of weeks to get rest. I meant to write. I meant to do a lot of things. Some things got done, others didn’t, and I’m ok with that.
I was grappling with an arthritis flare that forced me to slow down. I don’t like that I was forced to stop and rest, but that rest was so needed. I feel like my vacation was forever ago.
Thanksgiving with the family was wonderful. After two years of being apart, it was such a joy to be with my family in the same spot. It was so soul-filling. I have missed them so much. During the pandemic, I have seen all members of my family individually, but being together was magical. Hope had a great time; Yappy…less so because of the toddlers, but he was a perfect pup.
I’m trying to wrap up the year at work. I’m eager to take more time off and get more rest.
Hope is working her fanny off. I think it’s fair to say she doesn’t enjoy working with the “public” much. People can be awful and the pandemic has really brought out the problematic people. Layer on holiday shoppers and it’s any wonder why folks tolerate anyone else. I try to support her, make sure there’s good food available and home remains a safe place. I also listen to her post-work vent sessions. She’s really adulting now. LOL.
We’re ok, just busy. I promised to be back soon!
