1- I want to learn hand-lettering. Does anyone have a favorite resource? I may try a Skillshare class. ALSO: favorite pens for this?
2- Annabel officially draws better than I do. She was trying to help me draw a horse. This is hers. Mine is not postworthy. (Is drawing learned or genetic? She seems to have a visuospatial instinct on the paper that I sadly lack. Josh is a very good artist.)
3- Today I have about 835734 things I need to get done for work. I hope to end the week feeling caught up. (Or CAUGHT-UP-ISH.) My bullet journal is armed and ready with particularly threatening-looking checkboxes.
4- We owe about 9 jillion dollars in taxes. Remember how excited I was about how much we were saving? Sigh. I mean, we are still doing fine and saving a solid amount, but there was definitely a little bit of pouting and sticker shock when we got the #! Oh well, taxes are important. Our country needs the contribution now more than ever . . .
I think we will still meet our goal of saving at least 20% of our gross income this year — we will see how the next 6 months go.
I am grateful that I have YNAB. Seeing all of the honest numbers (and having a savings bucket for taxes/emergency) definitely prevented me from going entirely off the rails.
5- This has to be quick b/c I have another appointment to get a swab up my nose. I don’t really think I have COVID but another confirmation will be nice.
PS: Still no July newsletter — sorry!
