Ten.Seven Hundred & Twenty-Six
It’s so cloudy. It will be cloudy all day. Maybe the lake is not a good idea after all. What am I going to do with the beach tent? What am I going to do with all of them today? First, no ocean, now no lake? Where is the sun?
Disappointment. But it’s not about today, really. It’s the culmination of a lot of things and then the clouds on top of it. I realize that the disappointments are due to mismanaged expectations. Best to rethink and adjust to avoid these feelings in the future.
I settle on the trampoline place. A little bit of exercise is always good for the soul.
She asks me if I’m working tomorrow. I am. Saturday and Sunday. But I took off work today because it’s my birthday and I needed at least one day off. “You work like 4 different jobs.” I do. I have such poor boundaries around work. This is why I’m tired all of the time.
I tell her that I can have the 50 cent charge for rainbow sprinkles because it’s my birthday and I’m the one paying. She can have caramel another time. We walk with our gelato to the park in front of city hall and relax in the shade.
Too tired to open the champagne.
