🌞 The Lord had mercy on our seasonal depression this week and sent sunshine. I claimed the porch as my office for two whole days and began to feel human again.
💝 Related: I’ve had these overalls since the 90s because I struggle to get rid of items I love (and paid full price for.) Mostly this is a terrible condition to have but in the case of these overalls, my sentimentalism (hoarding) came in clutch.
📺 My husband and I finished ‘Better Call Saul” and now nothing else measures up. Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn, you have ruined us. Sometimes we don’t realize mediocre acting and contrived dialogue until we’ve experienced masterful performances. The good news: They’re filming the final season now. The bad news: It won’t air until 2022.
🎵 I busted out Taylor Swift’s “Lover” album this week and forgot how much I love it. (Perhaps because it came out in 2019 and reminds me of life pre-2020.)
💕 Now that my parents have gotten both vaccine shots and had their waiting period, I am beyond grateful to be able to safely see them again. Yesterday I met my mom at Panera and then helped her pick out some furnishings at Home Goods. Such regular things that now feel like the greatest gift! They lost a loved one (their third dear friend) to C*vid this week and it’s yet another reminder that we are not out of the woods. Far from it. Be safe, everyone. And let’s not stop praying for swift and efficient vaccine distribution.
📚 I’m reading The Soul of Shame: Retelling the Stories We Believe About Ourselves by @curt_thompson_md. This is a bold statement, considering the fact that I haven’t finished the book, but here it is: I think it’s going to be in the top 3 non-fiction books I’ve ever read. This is not a book to read lightly, nor is it quick. It will require your full focus. I’m reading a portion every day because it’s content you need to dive into and stay with until you’ve finished. I’ll say more and report back when I’m done.
😢 My oldest child turns 20 in a few days. I already have all the feelings about it.
Thanks to my friend @kimberlyacoyle for this Saturday invitation to share our #windowontheweek.
