It's such a horrid mind game to feel good and triumphant one day, then down and reeling the next. Grief is such a tricky thing. The good news is that I feel organized and am good at self-care. Onward I go...
There are moments when I wish I could just go to sleep and wake up a year from now. I become so exhausted, so tired of dealing with stuff. I just want to push it away and remember a simpler time.
Instead of listing all the things I'm thankful for today as I did yesterday in the midst of a meltdown kind of a day, tonight I'm going to list the things I'm looking forward to:
1) Sleeping in on Saturday.
2) Going out to dinner to celebrate my birthday with my parents tomorrow (my birthday is not until Monday).
3) Libes coming for the weekend to celebrate my 30th birthday.
4) A day of "all things pumpkin" with Jennifer the following weekend.
5) Alicia visiting from Michigan in less than a month!
Holding on to good thoughts. Good night.
