Good morning friends! I hope you are doing well! The weather has been really gross here lately – raining and in the 30-40s. The weather was lovely the weekend before – warm, hints of sun. I went for a hike with friends and didn’t have to wear a jacket.
I went for a run last Tuesday, and it was sunny and in the 70s. I felt human, and hopeful we were getting the early spring that the groundhog predicted (I know the groundhog is correct like, 40% of the time, which is statistically useless, but I can dream). Then on Wednesday, we got a cold front and the weather has been consistently cold, drizzly, and gray. ERRGHHHH. I think the weather is supposed to warm up today, but it’s still cloudy and depressing outside. I’ve long known that winter is my bad season – probably since college – but it didn’t hit me as hard the last two years since I was busy planning a wedding.
Yes, we’re planning a move this year, so that’s exciting, but it brings the normal amount of stress and anxiety with any major life change. Add heaping doses of nostalgia, especially when I hang out with my friends. I am happy that I’m able to transfer to Indianapolis and have a lot to learn for the projects that office typically works on. The idea of learning completely new things is invigorating, and – this will sound weird – but I kind of miss studying? Maybe a little? Once work stops being insane, I’m looking forward to digging into new material for the transfer.
I probably should have worked this weekend, but I had such a blah week and was brain dead by the time I left the office Friday night. Apollo had to get his teeth cleaned last week and was very unhappy about it, so he didn’t have a great week either.
It was good to disconnect this weekend. We celebrated a friend’s birthday and tried a virtual reality game for the first time, and it was actually really cool. I finished the baby blanket (I’m going to try a border with it), and moved a little further with my Hygge shawl.
The bobbles are complete! I’m about to start working on the separator next, which seems a bit daunting. We’ll see how much brainpower I have for it this week.
I’d better get ready for work. I hope you all have a happy Monday. Here’s to a (hopefully) warmer, calmer week.
