With everything going on in the world – my youngest son, Navy will be 36 on Friday. Wow. So I would like us all to get together either on the day or a day after – either go out fo eat or I\’ll cook something but, in all honesty, I\’d rather go out to eat. I\’m going to campaign hard on going out.
Yesterday we went out to eat inside, for the first time and it was great. Our favorite Mexican restaurant put up one-inch-thick hanging partitions between the booth. It felt cozy and private and safe. I don\’t want to be a \”karen\” but I did see one couple come in without masks. We\’re supposed to wear them as we walk through to our tables. I\’m protective of this particular small restaurant and would not want to see them get closed on account of some unthinking people.
It was so nice to sit and people-watch as we ate – it just was nice to pretend we are free again. We still haven\’t gone to the movies yet. It did lift my spirits and so far today I\’m feeling not so down. This week I plan to go to the fitness center on Monday and Thursday. Tues I have a pedicure at the beauty school.
I have been enjoying all the sunflowers I planted in the summer. You can check them out here.
The weather is much milder now and our air quality has cleared up so I can go outside to sit.
On Friday we got together with some friends for Rosh Hashanah – I\’ve noticed we\’ve all gained weight. I still fit in my shorts and my jeans, but I noticed they are tighter than they should be. I never had weight issues until menopause and while I try and battle it, sometimes I want to just give up.
I scanned the necessary documents to email back to the congressional office here locally –
I battle boredom and mild depression if I don\’t try and find some busy work for myself. So now I am making a list of suggestions – not a \”to-do\” list but merely suggestions on things I can do. It\’s getting myself up to do it that is a problem for me. I just am tired (boredom) and in a major funk and have absolutely no motivation. I\’m hoping that my sons birthday will motivate me to do something. Clean the house, bake…just be happy again.
I still LOVE my new haircut. I wash it and towel dry it and I\’m good to go and that is the way I like it. I fluff it with my fingers to bring out the natural curls. I am HAPPY about that.
