wimmhtw* 9.8

1. It was a rough week. I’ve gotten some difficult news at work the last couple of weeks, and I’ve been doing the work of two people. I thought that was going to get better this week, but one of those pieces of difficult news is that my new coworker isn’t going to be working with us after all. So in light of that and how tired I am of making it through most of this round by myself, I am grateful that the round is almost over. I will get to slow down and breathe a little before the next round ramps up. I’m not quite there yet, but I can see it from here.

2. After a rough week that left me feeling lower than low, my boyfriend took the time to make me feel better and remind me that I do matter. It’s been a lovely, refreshing weekend, and I can head to work tomorrow knowing things will get better.

3. Football is back, so I am grateful for plenty of books to read so I don’t have to watch it. Ha, just kidding. I grew up in Nebraska, so I’m a longtime Husker fan. My boyfriend actually grew up in Lincoln, close to the university and the stadium, so you know he’s all about the red. And while I’m not a big fan of the NFL, having Patrick Mahomes join the Chiefs means that we finally have a football team that even I can get excited about. So while I’m still all about the soccer, I can set aside a little time on these near-fall weekends to watch the other football.
