I’m feeling a lot better emotionally than I have in a long time (other than being worried and sad about what’s happening in Ukraine). It’s really interesting because last weekend I was in a pretty low place from losing my friend. Because of a few comments from my readers and the tools I’ve learned in therapy, I started to look at what happened differently.
Even though how my friend handled the situation is what upset me the most, I realized her feelings mattered just as much as mine did. I also realized even though I’m still sad, this is for the best and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me because I’m no longer wondering what’s going on.
This week on the blog:
I finished reading THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER by CS Lewis on Monday. I started reading THE SOUND OF STARS by Alechia Dow again. I’ve been sick with the stomach flu or really bad food poisoning so I haven’t made much progress. (I can’t read when I’m sick. My brain doesn’t let me.) Now that I’m starting to feel better, I’m hoping I can finish THE SOUND OF STARS sometime this week.
This week because I have been sick, I haven’t been listening to anything really. So, here’s one of my favorites songs, “Cristofori’s Dream” by David Lanz. I’d love to learn how to play this on the piano.
Corey and I watched the first episode of the new season of Star Trek: Picard! Holy ! It was amazing!!! I’ve never been this excited for a new season of Star Trek before!!!
I loved the season finale of The Amazing Race. It couldn’t have ended any better than it did, IMHO.
I want my friend and her family in Ukraine and all her country people to be safe and not to have to worry about their freedom being taken away by Putin’s need for power and control. I hope the Ukrainian military and people can continue to defend themselves and that the rest of the world steps up and helps them. Also, you, Putin. #IStandWithUkraine
I need my body to recover a little faster from this flu or food poisoning that I’ve had this week. I’m no longer in the bathroom every five minutes, but I can still only eat rice and drink water. If I eat anything else, my intestines cramp up horribly. I just feel like my digestive system is sore and needs a break.
How was your week? Anything exciting happen?
