With the end of June coming in just a couple of days, I’ve been reflecting on this year. It hasn’t been the greatest. I had my share of emotional breakdowns, lamented the many medical issues plaguing my family, and despaired that I wouldn’t finish anything.
But there’s no point to focusing on the bad, right?
My husband and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary this year. We did one of those escape rooms. We’d done one earlier for my birthday back in March. We didn’t make it out when we were in a group with 6 others, and my husband insisted it was because the other people thwarted us. This time, it was just the two of us and we made it out with 14 minutes to spare. Goes to show we make a pretty good team.
We followed that up with street tacos and a trip to the candy store, before catching a showing of Wonder Woman on the big screen. I laughed. I cried. And then my husband and I caught some raw fish on the way home before binge-watching DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Netflix.
My best friend watched the kids for us, and it amused me when she said (with great surprise) that my son was really good. It would seem Babyzilla is only his terror-striking self when I’m around. But both kiddos enjoyed their adventures with their unofficial aunt and asked when I would be leaving them with her again.
Other notable things:
I’ve since dyed my hair aqua. I’ll have pictures later. My husband bought me an awesome 2-in-1 laptop. It’s strong enough to handle all my graphics software, plus it’s Windows Ink compatible, which lets me draw as if I were using a sketch pad. I also use it for playing WoW with my husband and, of course, writing.
I managed to finish one scene in the past week, so I finally met my goal with my accountability partner. This week, I’m fairly certain I can kill the character I want to kill. *crosses finger*
How has 2017 been treating you so far? Can you believe the year is halfway over? What are you celebrating lately?
