I’ve started and trashed this post at least four times now. I can’t focus. I can’t decide what I want to write about.
It’s Monday in Nashville. It’s in the 70s and partly cloudy. It feels like March outside. It’s giving me severe spring fever. I’m having the most difficult time concentrating.
I know this won’t last until April though. Winter has to return. She’s not done yet.
I want chocolate. But I also want to lose 30 lbs.
I want to work out to lose that weight but I also love not having my body ache.
I know people have real problems in the world right now. Way worse than a craving for chocolate so forgive me for being a privileged white American.
This week Donald Trump will be sworn in as the president of the United States.
Donald freakin’ Trump.
If that isn’t a reason for this emoji, I don’t know what is.
How did we get here?
Not that I thought Hilary was a better choice. I couldn’t get behind her beliefs on things. But Donald Trump?
That happens Thursday.
Then Friday my best friends come to town. I cannot wait. I have a fungenda all planned out but I’m more excited to just have them in my world for a couple of days. To see where I make my coffee, where I drink my coffee, where I walk Brody, the Target I shop at…all the things I do.
It will be the longest week ever.
I was supposed to have flown to Missouri last weekend to watch my friend get married but Winter Storm Jupiter put a big halt to that. It rained down some freezing rain and my flight was canceled. But Apple saved the day and I was able to watch via Facetime.
It made me think (again) about whether or not I ever want to get married. I genuinely don’t know. Sometimes I think it would be really nice to have a person to do life with. But people hurt you. And I don’t want to be hurt. So I think that maybe it’s better to just have dogs.
So that’s my plan, I’ll buy a house and just have dogs.
How’s this for random?
