Happy weekend, everyone! I don’t know about you, but this week and last have been a doozy! After house-hunting for about a year and a half, a couple weeks ago we put our first offer on a place we really liked only to find out a few days later that we were “substantially outbid,” which, if you’ve been in this position, you know can be sort of crushing. Especially when you bid pretty much the max of what you can afford. That put us in a tailspin of re-evaluating life choices and our future and all The Big Decisions, which is just so emotionally draining. Then, this week, we got some news we’d been waiting on for a few months and it wasn’t what we were hoping for, and that was really disappointing. And to top it off, I was pulled into a friend’s emotional crisis this week in a way that felt very overwhelming and stressful and required fast decision-making on my part that wasn’t… very well-received, let’s say. In short, it’s been an emotionally (and physically) exhausting couple of weeks, and I’m looking forward to unwinding a bit tonight at my friend’s 40th birthday party. In an effort to lose the Trump 13 I’ve gained since November (ugh), I’m cutting back on my alcohol (and chocolate) consumption, so I haven’t had a drink since Saturday and I’m ready for one (or three) tonight.
Also on tap this weekend is Drew’s birthday on Sunday. To celebrate, he gets to (assistant) coach Jackson’s first ever Little League game. Guess who is more excited! (Hint: Drew). I’m also getting my first tattoo this weekend, which I’m pretty nervous about, to be honest, but also very excited, too. It’s not a typical first tattoo at all. It could go horribly wrong! I hope not. If it does, I probably won’t mention it again and will try to pretend it didn’t happen. If it goes well, I’ll likely share the details, and the reason why I decided to do it now.
Anyway, sorry for all the vague-blogging, how annoying. Mostly, I wanted to say hi, and Happy Spring, and Happy almost Passover to those who celebrate (Jackson has spent the last couple of weeks memorizing the four questions in Hebrew. If only my father-in-law were alive to hear — he’d be so thrilled!).
Have a great weekend, everyone!
