Down Days.

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.

  1. We’ve been watching Naked and Afraid – we figured the itchiness would be enough to keep me from doing it/dropping out. Like you I get itchy even without bug bites and who knows what touching my skin.
