Yes, men are welcome, too! :)

With all of the chaos and negativity swirling around us, how about some positives to give us a boost? A funny story, a poem, some uplifting words... please share something that makes you feel a little/lot better.

 

You know you are on the right road when you lose interest in looking back.

My ability to remember song lyrics from the 80s far exceeds my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen.

If you're going to walk a mile in my shoes, could you pick up some wine on your way back?

Maybe I should retitled this Wellness Wednesday...

I'm beginning to feel that anyone who has not been affected by this quarantine crap is lying or inhuman. Even those whose jobs seem to continue as-is are showing some mental fraying, including my two rocks: DH and Dad. 

For my rocks, their tolerance level has thinned. It's not that they're losing patience with people. Rather, they are less tolerant of crap and get their points across more quickly and end a conversation.

I don't know how things are going for the rest of you, but this week is officially the sixth month I've been working from home. Ugh. The commute is GREAT! Other things? Not so much. Countless, overly long zooms; a single monitor when my workstation has two; no ability to print; working longer to compensate for connection lags... I've even been spending my commute time WORKING.

Happy Hump Day, STalkers. Hella long week. It's about halfway through the day for me and I can taste Friday like an habanero pepper on a cut on my tongue. 

I know some of us are having a time right now, so I thought I'd share a couple of things from r.m. drake. Please feel free to share something that speaks to you or you find uplifting on a dark day.

 

"you have everything you need. yes, right now you feel a little empty and a little broken but you won't feel like that forever. count your blessings. so many people have it worse."

Happy Hump Day, STalkers! This has been a crazy-busy week. Feels like it should be Friday! I'm already thinking of what I can do to relax and destress in the evenings ahead. ALONE. I've had to spend so much time talking to people, that I'm looking forward to silence. And since my DH works a different shift, it will be veeeeeery quiet in our house for the next couple nights.

Women AND men! Sorry, males, but 'Woman Wednesday' just... flows. Wink

It's been a minute since I've done one of these (5 months!). Gimlet shared a poem yesterday (The Journey by Mary Oliver) and it got me thinking (hamster on the wheel!). Gimmy said (in part), "... I ran across this poem.  It resonated with me and I thought I'd share it...".
