  1. Glad you had a fun day. Re: showering – there were (brief) times in my when I thought I didn’t have time to shower daily and took to showering every other day. I’ve since learned that showering daily – even if it is literally a two minute shower – makes a huge difference in my mental health. I don’t care what is going on now; I shower every.single.day. Do you think two minutes would make you feel better too or would it just tick you off that it wasn’t longer?

  2. SUPER LOVELY to read you had good day with YOUR kids. This is why we want to become parents. Congratulations!
    Also noted you did lots of prep work for the week. Hope it pays off.

  3. Contemplating the implications of silence on logs. Probably due to NO TIME TO WRITE AND POST. Given the writing and posting on the other over full days….. well, horrific to contemplate.
