Slept badly. Too much on my mind, if I’m honest. Josh got up at 5 am, the smell of coffee had me up too. I’m already awake I might as well have some coffee.
Worked on Shay’s present. I can’t seem to find the correct color for this piece. I ran out and the number was not on the bobbin. Trying to find a match has not worked out. Everyone else says the color is close enough to the eye, but I’m damned stubborn. I’ll probably rip the old stitches and re-do the entire left side. There is no such thing as “good enough” in my vocabulary. If it can be better, I’ll make it better.
Besides, I learn more that way.
Shay was making cupcakes when I finally emerged from my grumpy fitful attempts to sleep.
She seemed out of sorts. Some of her ingredients ideas were not available, so some she’d had to improvise. I could tell she wasn’t in a mood to socialize, so I had a quick meal and returned to my room. Tomorrow is my last free day before orientation. I should be excited, new job and all, but it just feels like the beginning of a path I’ve already walked too many times. Still, it’s a job. Gratitude.
I took a bath and shaved my legs. I usually let the ‘hairy beast’ go in Winter (I have no mate to impress anyway), but I felt like I wanted soft skin again. The bath was awesome. I haven’t been able to do a proper soak in years (my other sister’s house only had a shower) it felt really good.
Jan wrote me about how much she misses me. I encouraged her to add me on her Instagram. She seems a bit sad since they announced BRU is closing. I worry about her. I see she added me, so that’s good.
Talked with Z. I haven’t talked about it on here, because it’s my daughter’s privacy, but she’s got a lot of changes ahead of her due to her life choices. I try to encourage her to believe in herself and know that she is loved. What more can a mom do? No matter what, I’m 100% on her side.
Dinner tonight was Chinese. Yum! Chicken Chow Mein. I couldn’t eat the whole thing. It was huge!
My fortune was “Your dream will come true within this year.” I found the fact that it mentioned it would be this year quite interesting. I always ask a question, in my head, before opening the cookie, so this answer made me tear up.
Cupcakes were amaze-balls! Shay used Zucchini and applesauce to reduce the sugar content. It was the freaking bomb! I don’t know what she was fussing about! They tasted great.
Now, I’m back in my room and really ready to sleep now.
I wonder what will happen tomorrow?
