So I guess it’s just the universe laughing and taunting me.

It knows I made a list.   It knows that I already have difficulty making time for me and the things I want to do.

So what does the universe do?

It makes me work 7 days a week for, well, the sad part is I don’t know when.

I have been making some slow progress with my 35 List.  I’ve signed up for some stuff and donated some clothes.  Two steps forward but alas one big step back as I seem to be at work more and more and Adam and my schedules just can’t coordinate.  No sob stories here, summertime work is busy and we should be thankful but sometimes I’m just plain worn out and I miss spending a day with him.  Sorry, complaining done, my big girl pants are on, we deal with it. Plus, fall will be here soon.  Oh fall, how I love you and boots and corduroy and scarfs and pumpkins and oh sorry, got lost in the moment there.
