Keep moving until you find your happiness. I’m happy. It’s a double-edged sword for me. When I’m happy I feel like I have trouble creating. I can’t write like I normally do. When I’m not happy I turn out some pretty amazing stuff. I prefer to be happy.
Ernie has wagged his way right into our pack. He has been accepted by our bonded pair and they have ear licking sessions every morning and night, no really, they do. Jesse is happy because he now has someone he can chase around the yard when he gets the zoomies. Prime is happy because he now has someone who just likes to flab out on the couch.
I don’t want to get too political here today because I’m in a great mood, but let me just say I told you so. All my conservative acquaintances who think they have something to say about the immigrant children interment camps, go fuck yourself. I don’t want to hear your opinions and I don’t care about your opinions. You’re all a bunch of fuckwits who will be judged justly. Remember this moment. Remember the faces of human children corralled behind fences with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a silver foil blanket to keep them warm without their siblings and parents. Remember that this administration has somehow lost 5,000 of these children in CPS. How the fuck do you lose 5,000 children in CPS? Remember you voted for someone who doesn’t understand the difference between someone seeking asylum and someone illegally crossing a border. Go fuck yourselves.
On another happier note, we have made our decision about a contractor and he is working on our contract right now, we should be starting soon. This is both stressful and exciting and I can’t wait! On a negative note, our air condition has been diagnosed as taking a dump slowly on us and we could replace now or have it go out when it’s 104 degrees outside and an emergency call to get a new one in. So we decided to replace it now. They were supposed to be here with our bigger and better air conditioner at 8 am. This morning but of course, things go sideways and they won’t be here until noon. I have Shawn over to do a small paver patio under the new one. Steve will hopefully finish the patio later this month. It’s all coming together and I’m so happy. We oiled my butcher block island this morning and it looks amazing! Mitchell did a beautiful job. It’s been top 5 best gift ever from my husband. He knows me like the back of his hand and I couldn’t love him more for that.
That’s it, that’s me, oh wait, I lost 4 lbs last week. I haven’t weighed myself this week but I feel better. I have more energy, I don’t feel sluggish. I wake up at 5 am. Every morning and I’m pretty much asleep every night by midnight. I can tell my clothes are beginning to fit me differently and I’m so happy my A1C was a little high. I don’t think I’d have made this kind of lifestyle change if it hadn’t happened. Because that’s what it is, a lifestyle change, not a diet.
I hope you all are having an amazing week and enjoy the summer solstice tomorrow!
