Good Saturday morning. We may be in fall after all, but I'm thinking there will still be some summer like days popping up. I'd welcome that. I have to say though, 65-75 but sunny, is pretty glorious. I feel a bit sad though that the fun of sun and swimming, days on a boat, are over until next year.
What’s top of my mind:
So many things are top of mind, and that's problematic. It gets almost overwhelming to be honest. I think about my kids and their health, safety, and work or school. I worry about ever getting my work team whole again. I think about DH just up and saying, "see ya" at the end of a particular stupid day with lazy coworkers. The blocking everything out for 10 minutes minimum each morning is my attempt to shake things in place.
What I’m watching:
I guess football and a couple YouTube videos on dog training. I'm now a bit hooked on House of Dragons, but can't get back into the Lord of the Rings. There's a new British Baking show. My daughter and I watched Saturday night, but it was interrupted frequently by puppy needs.
What I’m reading:
I have to finish my book club book, but I've read nothing. I have a stack of books from my daughter's room that need returning to library so might peek at some shelves.
What I’m listening to:
I had BBC World News on yesterday while deep in a project. Monday driving to office was the stupid morning shows.
What I’m planning:
In regards to grandpup, we're going to create a duo set up here for him. I can't keep driving back and forth and it'd just be easier to create a "boarding" type home here for when she can't telework. While in time, he'll settle into an easier routine that works for her, while still learning and puppy, this will work better.
Who needs a good slap:
Now the neighbors are treating the entire Cul de sac as a massive playground with guests. It was extreme last night. There had to have been 10+ kids, and it took one women five minutes to herd kids out of road so we could leave and another car could turn in. Not one other adult helped but stood around with beers in hand looking at us like we were in the wrong for interrupting their evening.
Who Deserves Knuck's (Fist Bump):
DH for being the Dog Whisperer. He failed our little sh&$-+-tzu pup, but darn if he doesn't have a knack with this new guy.
What’s making me smile:
I'm not happy that my sister had to have a scheduled followup surgery to her diverticular problem last spring, but glad she's getting care. What's making me smile is my family rallying around to schedule visits, home care, and meals. We're a good bunch.
That's what I got this week. I'm a bit exhausted mentally, but have a good to do list to keep busy. Play along if you'd like.
