Like Riding A Bike

It’s kind of weird to be logging into this wordpress account and writing things again. I am hopeful that the desire to write through the current times holds because it feels like the world is on fire.

I’m trying to keep perspective about the absolute abundance that is my life while quieting my brain that tries to tell me every time I cough (from allergies!) that I have Covid-19.

I am thankful for technology which has kept me in close contact with people I care about. This is not the kind of thing anyone can really imagine and yet here we are. Isolating ourselves in our homes until the smoke clears.

Let’s baby step back into this thing, okay? Okay.

Feeling – Anxious. Sad. Allergy-ridden

Listening – After Hours by The Weeknd and Jojo’s new single, Man

Reading – Nothing at this very moment but going to start Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower + beta read some goodness for a friend

Eating – ALL. THE. SNACKS. Current fav? Fritos Scoops + veggie cream cheese

Watching – Watched <a href=”https://www.netflix.com/title/81103093″>Fall Girls</a> with friends using Netflix Party last night. Yes, it was as awful as it looks.

Cooking – We had ramen for dinner and it was fantastic. I brought two cookbooks upstairs to thumb through before bed. Being at home is going to force my creativity and I’m into it.

Wanting – Everyone to be safe

April

So, I guess roughly once a month is a thing that I do now? I want to commit to weekly updates but I guess that writing has just been put on the back burner which means that these updates are just more and more infrequent.

The weather is finally changing and I’m so thankful for these extra hours of sunlight. The wedding season has begun for me which means the rest of my weekends for the year will overwhelmingly be spent listening to Uptown Funk and The Cha Cha Slide. It’s so good to be me :)

I don’t want to be a person who talks in circles but I’m going to. I did a thing. A thing I thought I would have done long ago but didn’t. I liked the thing a lot. A lot. I hope to do the thing more. /circle talk

March

I honestly feel like I JUST wrote that last blurb and yet, it’s been almost a month. I’d ideally like to get back in the habit of writing here daily or kinda/sorta daily but I may be pushing it.

I was thinking recently about prayer. Specifically, when I pray with specificity, God shows up. Always. And it’s not like rubbing a magic lamp with a genie inside – but often I am surprised at how my prayers manifest. Which, seems ridiculous because I believe in God and that power in my life.

SHARP SUBJECT CHANGE

I went to the gyno yesterday and my new doctor is great. FANTASTIC, really. Last week I burned myself with coffee (thanks, Starbucks!) and she definitely asked me several times if domestic violence was an issue in my home and honestly? I appreciated that. Imagine that you needed or wanted someone to see you and you get that visibility at your annual visit.

Tomorrow I’m seeing Robyn with EK and I could not be more excited. It’s going to be so good, I am so thankful for her friendship.

Hi

I can never quite be sure when the bug to write this thing is going to strike me and if/when it does – how long it will last, but here I am. For now.

So, so much has happened since I last wrote anything on this blog and – wow. Life, amirite?
