Interviews . . . went okay (I honestly have no idea? It’s hard to know what a benchmark of ‘great’ would be!). And I ordered the AirPod Pros.
It is Saturday AND Halloween. This was supposed to be a BOTH OFF weekend, but one of Josh’s colleagues asked for a switch so now he is working Sunday. Not going to lie, I have been grumpy about this. But I guess I will be glad to have the day back in ~2 weeks.
Local Halloween Weather Forecast:
The above also does not bode well for Cameron’s first day of soccer.
This past week has been rough, honestly. Josh has had to work late most nights (and by late I mean I am asleep when he gets home). Last night I had literally no energy left for parenting, and the result was a night with a lot of negativity. I am really trying to muster some enthusiasm for Halloween but am struggling a bit. Some crisp fall weather and bright blue skies would be really helpful for setting the mood but . . . see the above.
I’m anxious about the election.
Local COVID cases appear to be rising again.
G has a runny nose again and we kept her home. I am debating whether to test her again.
Everyone is talking about 2021 and even though I am all for New Year energy, the idea that things are going to be different in January seems delusional at this point. I don’t even think we’ll have any final say about the election by that time (recent Atlantic take on this).
Positive Things About Today
✅ Josh is home today (even if not tomorrow)
✅ It’s takeout night (which usually means pizza on Halloween!)
✅ Family Halloween Zoom (hopefully with some sort of moderator – the big family zooms really benefit from ORGANIZATION of some sort and more use of the mute button . . . )
✅ The kids are still asleep (it’s 7:08 am)
✅ We can get a few nagging things done (open enrollment for benefits)
✅ The kids have really cute costumes (pix tomorrow)
