If we were having coffee this weekend, I’d take some time to fill you in on how the week’s gone, the highs and lows, and reassure you that it’s been mostly highs. A burden shared is a burden halved, and my internet community has really been there for me. So the first thing I’d do is probably give you a big hug and a big thank you. 🙂
I finally managed to do a yoga set day before yesterday. I’d been seriously upset at how much flexibility I’d lost, but it’s coming back with surprising speed. Girlfriend and I had a lovely morning stretch together before our usual morning write (Which has taken an “unproductive” but incredibly fun turn. I finally gave in to my “newest” character, and let him go on an adventure with Kis. Fun times.).
I’m hitting the weird stage where I feel bad for making everyone feel bad, and want to curl back up inside my shell. I feel selfish telling people when I’m down, like, I don’t want to be that raincloud, but I feel like my visibility campaign is making a huge difference. Making myself acknowledge the bad moments makes them easier to move through, and then past.
I also got a new mattress topper, so hopefully the hours laying there not sleeping are behind me. Exhaustion + Depression = More than I feel like I can tackle.
Also, randomly, if we were having coffee, I’d probably try to foist a cucumber off on you. My little vine has REALLY produced this year. My tomatoes and peppers have done alright, but no where near what the cuke has. Holy mole. I need to make tzatziki or something. Tea sandwiches? Maybe, if we were having coffee, I’d insist on drinking it out of tiny cups and serve tiny sandwiches and cakes and make you hold your pinkie up.
Cause why not? 🙂
