Hello, Dear Reader. Happy Saturday.
Today is one of Those Days.
I feel itchy. Like, from head to toe. I’ve always had troubled skin. And for whatever reason I feel especially scratchy today. Itchiness has got to be in the running for effective torture devices, no?
I feel like the human version of an M&M. We were looking through old pictures on the computer today, and. . . Damn, age is cruel. I promised myself after our son was born that I would never berate my body again. And I won’t. It’s amazing. But I tell you, Dear Reader: those standards of beauty that were drilled into my head for so many years? They can be hard to break.
Everything is still closed. I know, I know. What else is new? We’re bored. And during a pandemic we should remember what really matters: We’re healthy, and grateful. But we’re also starting to climb the walls a bit. Even having the option to go out puts a spring in my step.
And there we have it.
But, things will look up, friends. They always do.
The Bluebird of Happiness is just around the bend.
And she’s singing a song for you.
