This has been a week for disappointment and happiness. Some personal events took place these past few weeks that made me question my entire purpose in life. Everyone is good. Family is good. Just something that kind of threw me off and now I am second-guessing things. I need a few days to process it,
On a happy note, I believe my son has chosen the university he will attend this fall as a junior. He was accepted to the university I work for but he has chosen to go to CSU Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He will be a Mustang. After the college visit he had, the other schools he was accepted to paled in comparison. I’m happy, that he’s happy.
Coffee and church and maybe some reading with all the windows open. It’s expected to be 85 degrees today.
After all the things I had to do these past few weeks I finally feel as if I am on top of them. We just need to pay a visit to the junior college to submit my daughter’s summer school requests and we’ll be good for awhile.
My life group is on break so that gives me my Tuesday nights back for a little while. I am kind of excited about that.
On Saturday, three of us are seeing Legally Blonde at the university I work for. This same night, my daughter has prom. She’s only a sophomore but is going with some juniors and seniors in theatre. We got her dress before the wisdom teeth came out which is good because we would not have had time to do so given that prom is so darn early. I remember prom being in May, not before Easter!
As usual I am reading more than one book at a time. On the 17th though, I have a discussion meeting for There There so I am reading it between other books. I am in this weird reading mood where I just want to read fast, drama-filled stories. Don’t think this one falls into that category so we’ll see how it goes.
There is language. A lot of bad language and adult themes but Ken Jeong’s Netflix Special is hilarious! It’s only about an hour long but I laughed the entire time. I think he is just as funny without the language but there’s plenty in there so just know that going in.
New Things I’ve Tried:
I haven’t tried anything that’s been good so I won’t share any of it here but I gave up yelling for Lent and so far that is going well.
Everything is blooming right now. We’ve had so much rain this year. Everything is so green and fragrant. I love it.
Question for you: How do you handle disappointment? Does retail therapy work? Self-care? A hike? Right now, I feel the need to isolate myself which is not the best way to go.
