I love these little coffee chat posts, and I love coffee. So much coffee, so here we go:
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. yesterday was our last at-home school day. Sheffield goes back to school full-time, five days a week next week. If I’m being honest with myself, it’s pretty bittersweet. I have actually enjoyed having this day in the middle of the week to be with him and see how much he’s learned. I will miss our lunch picnics and dance parties.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. my creativity has been severely lacking. My job has been sucking the soul out of me lately, and I just haven’t had anything left to give when the day is over. Plus I feel like I am being pulled into so many different directions lately, that I’m pretty sure my brain shuts itself off after about 830 pm.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. we signed Sheffield up for basketball. He had been doing gymnastics when Covid started, and we haven’t been back yet, even though they’re open. Sheffield has been asking to do basketball for some time, so luckily our city’s rec center is doing youth basketball. There will only be 24 kids in his league, so I’m hoping he makes some new friends.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. I’m still struggling mightily with my body image. I stopped wearing my Apple Watch for a week, because I was becoming obsessed with the move/stand/exercise goals. I am proud of myself for noticing it and putting a stop to it before I let it get to a bad point. Recovery is a hard and long process, but I’m working on it.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. I bought eight thousand skeletons to decorate my house, because Halloween rules. Also going all out for everything is key in 2020.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. how much I miss human decency and kindness. How is it so hard lately just to be nice to people? I get that we’ve all been cooped up like animals since March, but come on people. Treat people how you want to be treated, mmk?
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you…. to start watching Ratched on Hulu. Unless you don’t do well with some gore and creepiness. But it’s October – everyone needs a good scare in October.
Thanks for having coffee with me – I hope to be able to do it with people in person soon!
