July 1 – July 7
I would say this was a “roll with the punches” kind of week, but I don’t know how much rolling I did. It was more like a “get punched in the stomach” week. Nothing job-related, this time, but everything else was not going so well this week… which was kind of comforting, because at least I could say to myself “Well, maybe you will get a shiny new job and then this will all will feel like small change.
(Or I will get rejected and start to cave in on myself. Either or)
It’s not all doom and gloom, however. There was a Wet Hot American Summer party on Monday, Fourth of July shenanigans on Wednesday, and I made two kinds of delicious cupcakes – Brown sugar poundcake with brown butter glaze and Champagne. We got caught on the roof during a flash rainstorm, during the fireworks show – a soggy, fun memory that I think I will have for life.
Also, I woke up the next morning with awesome looking curly hair. Fourth of July miracle.
And once I make it through this week, I get a week in Michigan.
I think I can handle that.
