The Logical Heart Knows Best

Today I felt like my old self. It feels foreign, lol. I was energetic and reorganized and cleaned stuff from our closet. I have a pile waiting for me to bring to the recycle bin. Then the rest of the day I’ve been cutting through red tape, learning how to use some apps, it’s been time-consuming.

I’ve been trying to find free apps, but so far they’re only free for a trial period. I may end up having to purchase an app. I’m trying one last one, it says it’s free, but we shall see.

I’ve been a bit scattered, I stopped writing just now to bring the recyclables to the bin. It was so nice and breezy out, almost balmy. My hair is still wet after taking a bath. I tried opening the balcony door to let some cool air in but ended up using the a/c instead, Drue will be home soon and he likes it cooler.

I haven’t read the news today except for a few minutes this morning, it’s been a nice break. I’ve decided I won’t be going on extra outings to different grocery stores to get holiday food. We’re just doing our one trip to Target each week from here on out. Not worth the extra risk with the rise in COVID cases.

I am still wound up, usually, I’m pooped by this time. Maybe it’s the extra stress from working on red tape and stirring up memories of stressful times from the past. I’ve been breathing through it and telling myself it’s just another process and I’ll get through it fine.

I drink calming tea too, like chamomile and lavender. That’s why I take baths too because they are soothing. I’m reading two chapters of Atomic Habits every day in the bath. I already listened to the summary of it. The audio version of the book is always checked out from the library and the hold list is long. Popular book!

I’m distracted tonight, I’m still fiddling with apps while writing here. I think I’ll call this blog post done for today. How many days are left? 43. I wonder how it will feel not blogging every day come January? I bet I’ll write every day anyhow, just not blogging.
