Well, sorry about that extremely negative brain dump post yesterday. I felt a tiny bit embarrassed to share all of that, in part because maybe it was exposing some inner insecurities and weaknesses in a public setting. 🙂 And also because it sort of felt like whining over “silly” problems.
I generally think that stewing over negativity is pretty unproductive (even though I definitely still do it), but sometimes it does help to kind of air it all out, and then move on.
I had a better day overall yesterday, thank goodness. Work was still really busy between meetings and training the new employee. But the evening was more low key.
A GOOD LIST (from yesterday)
🔷 One of the meetings we had was actually very PRODUCTIVE. Some lately have felt….tedious. This was a good and I think worthwhile one.
🔷I got my walk in yesterday morning. And because I slept terribly Tuesday night (went to bed at ~10:45, woke up at 2:55 a.m. and never fell back to sleep…), I swapped out my workout for a 20 minute relaxing yoga flow before bed last night.
🔷Our lawnmower broke down, but we have these great neighbors that are just the nicest people ever. Like the super relaxed type, where if you ever need to borrow anything, they just say, “Oh yeah, go ahead! Here’s the garage code, go on in and help yourself!” if they aren’t home. So they let Ivan use their riding mower last night to cut the grass while we figure out getting a new one.
🔷 I’m seeing some strong effort from the boys at school so far this year. Especially Ethan with his writing/language arts assignments. I’m impressed/ surprised that he is actually bringing them home to work on them (instead of just finishing up in study hall quickly)….like I’ve said before, that’s not his favorite subject, and I’m SO HAPPY to see him not just handing in “whatever” quality work. He’s been bringing the writing assignments home, working hard on them, asking for help if needed/reviewing them. So that’s a really good thing!
🔷 Tonight is Asher’s first real cross country meet. Excited to see how he likes it! It’s at a golf course in another town at 6 tonight.
I am grateful for the loaner lawn mower! Will have to make sure to pay it forward somehow. 🙂
