I feel good today: physically and mentally.
Physically: my joints don’t hurt much for the first time in what feels like forever. I’m frustrated because I’m still having issues getting an appointment with the rheumatologist, but I shall persist. I am nothing if not persistent.
Mentally: I slept in, which is always good for my mood. I got a lot of stuff done today that needed to be done. It’s funny how such little things, such as stocking the pantry, getting all the laundry done, or even just vacuuming the floor, can make such a big difference in how I feel about myself.
Tonight was D’s last night teaching (finally) and so now I can sign us up for dance lessons this summer! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, and D is surprisingly into it. He has just been too busy the last semester to get anything going. I found a local dance studio that offers swing lessons, which we are very interested in learning, but…they also have wedding dance instruction! D mentioned liking the idea (and kind of hating himself for liking it…ha!) of having a choreographed first dance. Welp, babe, I found a place!
The kids are home and it’s so nice to have them around. I love listening to them talk, laugh, and argue. I love watching them play Minecraft together while they take over the tv with their terrible kid shows. I love their impromptu hugs. Tonight was Muffin Monday, where we make muffins for breakfast the next day. Unfortunately, we only had ingredients to make six and we already ate most of them. Oops.
D is on his way home. We are going to make dinner together, drink Riesling, and watch Better Call Saul.
Today was a good day. It’s the little things.
