It’ll pass.

Don’t know what it is, but I’ve felt a little…off lately. Not unhappy exactly, just kind of tired, uninspired and, well, off. I suspect it has a little something to do with the heat and not getting outside very much. But I think it might be more of a combination of the start of Drew’s senior year of high school and the two-year anniversary of his surgery (tomorrow). It’s just weird, pausing for the past yet looking to the future at the same time. And I have to be honest. It hasn’t helped that we had to cancel our Cincinnati trip because apparently the first of school was moved up since I bought the tickets. It’s a bummer, but it’s not the end of the world. We’re still able to take a road trip to Oklahoma for the boys to play in a tennis tournament, so we’re excited about that.

But I made brownies tonight and it was a nice enough evening to eat them on the back patio. Brownies are always a good thing. Check out this weird plant. It’s growing wild in one of my planters. It’s up to my waist and I don’t know what in the heck it is. But the blooms are darling. So I refuse to pull it. Okay, I’m also afraid that I’ll end up with a blistering rash on my arms like the last time I pulled weeds.

    I'm sorry about the Cincinnati trip. I know how much you and the boys were looking forward to it. Call me anytime you are feeling "off" and want to chat. I appreciate our friendship so much and know Drew's senior year will be a bittersweet year for you (and probably for Drew, too). Take care, friend!
