Yesterday I kept so busy I didn’t have a chance to write anything up.
Today…not much happened.
Not necessarily a bad thing. But to be honest, I spent most of the day fighting a migraine, and then when that went away I was so tired I was falling asleep at my desk. But hey, the migraine was gone!
1. Got up in my favorite way, and got meditation and breakfast before hauling ass out the door. I’m disorganized as fuck, but I got my coffee, and was fed and not running late for once.
2. Chipotle for lunch.
3. Got into some classical music at work. It’s not my favorite genre, but I stumbled across a composer I’m batshit crazy for and it’s opening me up to new stuff. Like this.
4. My friend Marta gave me some vetiver essential oil to try on A a few weeks ago. It promotes calmness, and when you breathe it in, it literally relaxes you instantly. Ive noticed a huge difference since we’ve started using it. We call it her “perfume” and she dabs some on her wrists pretty much right before we leave from daycare. It’s insane. I honestly didn’t think it would work but it does. She was so worked up when I went to get her today I was sure it was going to be one constant meltdown but instead she whined for a couple minutes and fell asleep on the ride home. And then was a normal happy kid when we got home. Now, we still have bad days and meltdowns but they are so much more manageable.
I believe God puts people in our lives at just the right moment when we need it. I have been at my wits end all summer with this kid, and truly believe it was a God thing when she walked into my office randomly and happened to have this oil on her.
5. A lovely dinner of cheeseburger pie, then the Trolls movie with two happy little girls. The dishes are done, laundry is in the machine, and bedtime is drawing near.
