I think this was a really nice weekend. I feel more relaxed today than I have in a long time, and that is nice. Sometimes I worry too much-things that I can't control or change in any way totally stress me out and bring me down. I really need to work on being able to let things go or find some way to turn things off. I worry about political stuff, I worry about my family and friends, I'll worry over a conversation I've had earlier in the day that maybe should have gone a different way, or a different thing I should have said. I'll read about someone dying and then spend quite awhile wondering if I will get cancer and die soon, and things like that. It isn't fruitful, and all the worry in the world can't change it. I think/know that I am wasting time and wasting time that I could spend enjoying life and enjoying the good things that are currently happening. So-somehow I need to figure out how to relax more like I have done today (I can worry about how to stop worrying now. ha!)

Friday night we went to Open Mic night at our church. We don't perform but we usually go and watch the people who sing, recite poetry or stories that they have written, or play instruments, things like that. The event is run by a couple who attends our Bible study class. They are truly nice people and I really enjoy them, and we like to support the things our classmates do.

Saturday morning was a soccer game for the kiddo. His team was pretty evenly matched against the opposing team, and even though they both played hard, no one scored a goal so it was a tie for zero. Afterwards we got my husband a hair cut, came home and I worked on laundry and then ended up falling asleep for a few minutes. When I woke up I went to the store and found a few good items on sale that I needed (clothing). I came home just about in time for a couple of friends to pick us up to ride with them to another sort of church related event. My church is involved with helping other church plants get started, and one of the plants organized a community event where they had food trucks and art work to look at and/or buy, and just different things like that. We went and stayed for a few hours, and that turned out to be really fun. I saw some people who I haven't seen in a long time that I have missed and enjoy talking with. We ate food from the trucks. I had nachos that weren't so great, and an Indian fry bread with cinnamon and honey that was AMAZING!

This morning was church and then home again. We did our taxes (what a relief to have that out of the way) and then as I was heading out to the grocery store, I received a text from one of my best friends who I only get to catch up with now and then. We met up for a drink and to visit. I ended up staying for a couple of hours and it was just SO FUN. I miss just hanging out and catching up with people and it was so great. When we finished up I went to the grocery store. I had to get a few things but I also picked up a rotisserie chicken and we had that for dinner, along with some asparagus that I roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper. That turned out really good-my husband is continually being surprised with how good vegetables can be, and I am feeling please inside with my progress on my goal of helping him to learn to enjoy healthy foods. Yay!!! I've been packing his lunch for him every day and he is happy because he has been losing some weight (he isn't obese, just developed a healthy belly since we got married) and feeling better for it.

Currently my husband is watching House of Cards. There are some new ones out now-I guess they released another season. I don't know exactly how Netflix shows work, so I just call it a season even if that isn't exactly how they do it. I'm wandering in and out and cleaning things up a bit, doing more laundry, washing dishes, reading a little here and there, etc. I am terrible at sitting still to watch TV anyway, and this show is particularly intense, which I don't enjoy as much. I like light and/or funny shows.

Hope everyone has a great week!

    Today I feel grumpy. I know that part of that is because I did not sleep well. Also people who are self centered are really dragging me down. Other…

    Last night I had a terrible dream that Abby fell down the stairs. I was close enough to see but far enough away from her that I couldn't stop it. She…
