I’m still over here treading the deep waters waiting for everything to be a bit more still as they once were. Work is still extremely demanding, but I’m hanging in there for the most part. I need a vacation like yesterday, but I’m trying my best to get ahead of the work before I go on vacation.
I’m also trying to get ahead of my work as I’ll also begin teaching again for about three weeks with a summer program. So far, this has been the highlight of the month. These days, it’s the little things that keep me sane.
I’ve been spending
a lot some time relaxing and taking it easy on the weekends as of late. It helps me when dealing with all the shit I have to deal with throughout the week. It helps me when I have to wrap my mind around shelling out $10K for a new HVAC system, a dog that loves to get lost around the neighborhood, contractors that go ghost on you, a house that still needs some work, and a restricted escrow that’s laughing at you. Oh and did I mention how my epic birthday travel plans have been diminished? Yea.
With all my complaining, I’m making sure that I hold on to the little blessings — the late weekend mornings, the hot tea, and binge watching The Office for the 50th time in a row. But with all that I’ve mentioned plus sooo much more, my peace and self-care are my priority.
Here’s to conquering June with grace.
