I spent so long last night thinking about nebulous things in the future.
What if we decide to do XYZ?
What would be the financial implications of UVW?
What happens if RST doesn’t work out?
(I could probably make it through the entire backwards alphabet.)
There is plenty of good happening in the immediate + near future, and I’m going to miss it because I’m perseverating about a theoretically possible someday.
So, I will try to work on that.
Another List of Positive Things:
1- I have been reading Emily Henry’s People We Meet on Vacation on the kindle app in my kids’ bed. I was not a huge fan of Beach Read (I know many love that book, it just plodded a bit for me!) but I’m enjoying this one a lot more.
2- I am getting really excited for my college reunion! On the downside, as of now my close friends aren’t going. On the upside, I just feel like the kids will be a fun age for this and will have fun running around the beautiful campus.
3- I am into the new Arcade Fire album, WE. It’s a little obvious at times but it brings me back to 2006 in a good way.
4- I have been perseverating about vacation days but I have ~160 hours built up currently. I am definitely going to blow through some fo that this summer (TRIPS) but it’s a really nice cushion to have.
5- We have a date night this weekend at a really good place in MIA we haven’t been to since 2019. Looking forward to that PLUS more IKEA building/unpacking. Ha.
