Last Minute Monday Pt. 3 - Change is Afoot

I haven't posted in a minute because my head's been in the clouds.

Things are one way or another. In many ways? Yes, probably that. I mean it literally with things I can actively witness and see, but also in just...a feeling. A shift. The numerology says this is a May thing....all those 5's. (2021 = 2+0+2+1 = 5) Whatever it is, my reality is changing. 

There's one possibility in particular that I'm not quite ready to share, and it's also weighing on me the most heavily. For the moment, anyway. We'll see.

Everyone loves a cryptic girl.

I mean, there's some good stuff. Our oldest son (who is 12, and immunocompromised) got his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine last week. He did amazing. Said it didn't even hurt - and the kid hates needles. He had no side effects other than a sore arm, and he is thrilled to get his second one done so he can have a mostly normal Summer. Super pumped for him.

I'm getting a new phone this week. The purple iphone 12 - which is exciting, and also pointless because I will immediately cover it up with a phone case anyway. But I'm still thrilled. 

My in-laws sold their house and bought a new one super close to us. It's even closer to the middle school that our oldest attends, and that our middle guy will move up to in September. The town installed new crosswalks and lights not long ago, too, so they are super thrilled with the idea of walking to their Grandma's house together after school. Everyone's pretty excited about it.

We are nearing the end of the school year, which is a change I am desperate for. I am grateful for the quality time and lack of morning rush that virtual school has allowed us, but I am ready to not be the person in charge of making sure my kids' school days happen. And also to have some breathing room to get stuff done without 5 loud, messy people all jammed at home at all times. There's 26 days school days left, and they can't get over with fast enough.

I made some big "emerging into the public" moves this week. I know this will seem ridiculous to some, but because of our immunocompromised guy we've been so, so careful. So last week when I went to the library, Target, and a greenhouse, I felt like I'd been let out of prison or something. It felt like it always did, but with this added feeling I allowed to be doing this? So weird.

Speaking of the library, I've been loving flying through books again. Last week I read The House in the Cerulean Sea and Float Plan. Loved them both. This week I'm working on Chasing Lucky, A Special Place for Women, Sunkissed, and Clap When You Land. (This paragraph contains affiliate links - but only this one. More info at the end.)

So....yeah. There's more, but this is where I put my cryptic hat back on. My over-analyzing and writey brain desperately wants to say more, but shouldn't. Soon, I hope. In the meantime, if you could send those good-good vibes my way, I'd appreciate it. 

Have a gorge week. <3
