Valentine’s Day. I strolled down to Walgreen’s to get another bag of Mini Eggs. Then I strolled back home, slowly eating them, savoring each one. Easter candy for Valentine’s Day. Why not?
More cleaning and unpacking today. The boys went back home yesterday so I could finish up, and have some alone time too. They love me.
Feeling tired today. That’s normal when I come up out of the hole. It takes a toll on my body.
I was thinking today about my dreams. They’ve changed so much over the years. I used to dream about living at the beach. Now I dream about finding meaningful work. I felt like I needed to write this longing down today. Sometimes speaking it out loud makes the thing feel more real, you know?
