Today, has been a roller coaster of emotions for me.
The day began hot and cloudless the sun bathing down on the front garden like a magnifying glass refracting light, in a most piercing manner.
I started my day with coffee, which was good. I’ve been browsing around for coffee deals as this wedding planning is not nearly done. And ya know for planning and college classes, everyday, sometimes you just need a little perk up! I love African coffee and notes of chocolate, yes please!
I sure didn’t start the day in a very healthy way, skipping breakfast.
I guess, nowadays, with my IBS it seems harder for me to eat because if I eat something that’s now low-fodmap I sometimes, literally double over in pain.
So, I became overwhelmed about my college financial aid, which, imagine my luck, I was chosen for financial verification. Which is a random selection… Arrgh. Skipping breakfast and having that to deal with that, I was such an emotional mess by 9:30 am. Thankfully, my
dear fiancé held me while I cried. He’s so good and loving!
Then we prayed our morning Novena’s together, which is always such a beautiful and unifying thing for us.
That I think was the change I needed for my day to become brighter.
After we prayed, he went off to work and I was able to sit down and really get down to the nitty-gritty of my college class.
Which, I worked on for much of the afternoon and got a couple of assignments outta’ the way. Which was actually surprisingly successful! To my great relief. I scored a B on my 8 page APA essay, which I was happily surprised with.
I’ve been having some pain in my feet recently which I think is due to the heat, perhaps. I painted my toes for the first time in a coon’s age. I like the color it’s an ESSIE quick dry nail color.
I am absolutely thrilled about my fiance getting a teaching position at a high school. I think he’ll really enjoy that!
The wonderful thing is I have no idea where he’ll get a job and therefore where we’ll be living. I do hope we find out before August though. Being surprised about where you’ll be living is good. But being surprised about where you’ll be moving within a couple of days I think is a bit jarring.
Admittedly, I’m a little anxious about that.
In the early evening, I was able to go through some old boxes of mine in the attic and closets. What a treasure trove of different memories, I found, goodness! I used to be such an artist and I found so much of my art.
I also have this somewhat odd affinity for saving letters and cards that people have sent me. Kind of a bad habit, I guess. I even found my confirmation papers and several Catholic books about finding happiness while being single and prayers for your future husband. Golly gee, those books are all dog-eared and coffee stained. Haha, they sure served a purpose though! So, all in all, the trip down memory lane was one filled with great joy and many tears.
Well, until tomorrow my dear friends, I hope all is well 🙂
