Happy Saturday all.
Some weeks, I feel like my lungs are a lead balloon – this was one of those weeks! Every day was an emotional and mental struggle. I’m tired. I’m weary. It’s rainy out. In trying to take care of a friend, I’m not taking care of myself, and therefore I’m not taking care of anyone. The usual little gems.
The start of the week was my favorite, because other than a flurry of chores, I gave myself permission for my husband and I to laze around the apartment all day and play childish video games. Really – that was the specific goal: pajamas and video games.
Some day, I’ll write a post defending an adult loving the Lego and Disney Infinity video games, but for now suffice it to say we had fun running through Back to the Future and a few of the main levels, and we started the Doctor Who Level Pack (not a fan… sorry! too much wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff).
It was negative four when I left the house Monday morning. Not a fan. This Monday also started a five day work week (I know, I know, I’m blessed to have the occasional four day one) and so the week immediately seemed infinite.
No. Nothing about Tuesdays ever make me smile. It’s a curse.
It was 55-degrees in Massachusetts Wednesday afternoon, and even though my back and shoulders and feet were killing me from stooping over the scanner all day, I relished in it. Compared to Monday… well, this is New England weather.
On a sadder note, on the way home Tuesday, I passed a major accident on Route 128. When I looked it up Thursday morning, and it turned out that a school bus tipped over with 22 students riding back home. Horrible. Thank goodness, there were no deaths and no major injuries, but when I passed and saw the crumpled school bus, it near about broke my heart.
In the office today! It was mostly a dull day, but Matt drove in so I was able to cling on to sleep for a couple extra hours, and we listened to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on the way home. Always nice!
The long awaited weekend draws near! I worked from home Friday – an extra treat, as it was a long weekend! I also got some new mugs in the mail – super exciting. I didn’t take any pictures, because they’ll pop up someday as the header to one of these.
Overall, it was a pretty low key week. Much tired. But it was an awesome mail week for your average geek – books, Lego Dimensions stuff, and I even got a few Disney pins and a letter from one of my pencils. Later today, I’ll be baking cookies for our friends, then my husband and I are taking my mum out to lunch. I’m actually a quite capable baker, but I hate doing the dishes! Still, it’s nice for the house to smell like cookies.
What’s on the agenda for you today?
