You know you’re a boring grownup when the most exciting thing that happens in a week is getting a new dishwasher. Heh. Okay so it wasn’t the MOST exciting thing, but it was a high point this week! The dishwasher that came with this house had to be at least 20 years old and didn’t clean anything unless you pretty much washed the dishes before putting them in. We got a good Black Friday deal on a new one and it was installed this past Thursday. So we have a decent dishwasher again. Woohoo! Fun adulthood! (Though seriously, it does eliminate a LOT of stress and work, and that’s always good.)
Also from this week: Morrigan was accepted into National Honor Society (this was actually the most exciting thing – I’m looking forward to his induction ceremony this upcoming week), I made it to my writing group for the first time in about a month, we finished getting the Christmas decor up inside, Gavroche learned how to fluff-and-twitch his tail like the squirrels he watches outside, I wore my cute new kitty socks –>, and I finished listening to the audio version of Oathbringer. All highlights, all things to focus on so that I become entirely smushed by the terrible things happening in our country right now. (Or by the idiots who leave stupid comments, one of which riled me up so much this week that I actually posted about it on FB, when I normally try to just walk away for my mental health.)
It’s December. Just a couple more weeks to go until the new year. Breathe.
