Whew, what a weekend. We were BUSY! Ok, so Friday SUCKED. No details; suffice to say I am very ready to leave this job. When I got home, Ash had gone to a local growler place with a friend and brought back this great beer (Half Acre Dungeons) and we sat on the back deck and relaxed. I needed that, honestly. Elliot’s friend came over and then his parents invited him to dinner with them. So the rest of us went out for Mexican, which was really nice. I fell asleep promptly after we got home, of course. Mentally exhausted
Saturday morning was a bit leisurely: big breakfast then starting on some yard work. I got most of it done but ran out of trash bags. We had lunch then 4 of us went out to look at sofas and then to a birthday party at the park for one of Dakota’s friends. Meanwhile, Elliot went to the skating rink with a friend. Funny to me how teens/pre-teens still do that. In a technological world, they still do the funky chicken on roller skates. After cleaning out brewing equipment, we were pretty low-key that evening, which was much appreciated.
Sunday was more work: a crappy run in the humidity that left me gasping for air, then we got started on brewing a new beer. Well no, I went to the store and then we started. Finished around 2ish but between laundry and other cleaning and cooking, it felt like a very long and tiring day!
Work continues to be a major pain in my ass. I am very hopeful I will find a new job and in some ways, it’s a very freeing thought. I continue to do good work but all with the idea in the back of my head I won’t always be here.
So, in order to calm myself during these stressful times, I am back to listening to vaporwave, which this post describes perfectly!
