My mind has been oddly chill this week for the most part. I’ve been going through the motions of my day and trying not to think or stress about the things that I cannot control. So, since this is a brain dump, I’ll just ramble on about a few things this week.
I haven’t been waking up as easily, so my morning routine I’m trying to cultivate has really been tossed to the wayside. On a perfect day, I’d be able to get up, have my workout finished, journal, fill out my planner, and read for awhile before starting my work day. This week I did my workouts, but not much of the other stuff. When I am able to fit them in, I’ve noticed way more peace of mind throughout the day. I also tend to eat like a ravenous wild animal when I’m out of my usual routine. The leftovers from hosting Easter certainly did not help.
Speaking of that, I’ve never been big on hosting, because I feel like I don’t know what to do with people in my house. Is this an introvert problem? However, I enjoyed having family over for our first holiday at our new home and don’t mind it as much now that we’ve got a lot more space for people!
I’ve also been wondering if it’s a man thing to have to be harassed to do important things? I feel like I always know what’s going on and when, but if there is something Chris needs to take initiative on, I must constantly remind him or be on his ass to do it. This makes him annoyed with me, and also annoys me that I have to do so. He’s great about doing other things, so I hate having to constantly be on his case about the important stuff. Is this some ancient shit in their genetic makeup? Sorry Chris, you’re still pretty awesome though.
A recent joy in my work from home life, is the saga of the neighbor’s cat and Zorra. I just found out this week that the neighbor cat’s name is Alan. The previous owner of our house used to feed him, so I decided I would keep up this tradition since Alan still comes around. He comes to eat his bowl of food, and then he sits on the porch and stares at Zorra through the screen door. She hates it. She gets all riled up and acts tough in her cushy little house and Alan just stares at her with his sad little face. He comes back several times a day just to sit and stare at her. Sometimes I’ve noticed that he’ll get closer and closer. I can’t tell if he enjoys messing with her or if he just wants her to be his friend, but he comes and goes daily like clockwork! She’s been getting less agitated so maybe he will win her affection one day.
In other news, I get to see one of my best friends today for the first time since last June! She finally gets to come over and see the new place and hang out with me <3
That’s all I’ve got for today’s brain dump. See ya next week!
