We have spent the week staying busy- me with homeschooling and Travis has been playing handyman for one of my dear friends. This woman was so sweet to message me on FB and ask if Travis wanted to earn a little extra money. Honestly, I value the fact that his hands and mind are busy over any money he could earn right now. He is pretty emotional about all of this, and strangely enough I am playing the part of the calm one. (don't ask me how!)
I just checked my comments a while ago and someone, anonymously of course, was kind enough to point out that I had misspelled a word in my last post. Thank you for that. I think it's good to remind myself that I'm not perfect, because I'm not. (i before e, except after c!)
Travis has been working his shift on the picket line, and we both participated in our first rally yesterday. I gotta tell you, I was never in a sorority or group in college, but this feeling of solidarity and rooting for something bigger than yourself? Well, that was just plain cool.
But it's all good. On the flip side, the week also brought me laughter with one of my best friends when I really needed it, a part time job offer for me that would be flexible and still allow me to homeschool, lazy mornings with my husband and conversation over coffee, and so many supportive and lovely messages from IG and FB friends.
We may go ahead and start our laundry room build- may as well get a few to-do's knocked off the list since Travis is home. Do me a favor- go out today and build someone up- we have enough tearing down going on right now.
