Plenty of time to sleep and rest and begin getting my pep back
Yummy Canadian coffee from Ashley
Clean streets and sidewalks to walk on
Clear blue skies and 87 degrees and still so much green
Getting to see Jeff and Carrie, Jesse and Katie, Allison, Casey, SV and Bryan and finally have a pizza from the Pizza Coop!
Whole milk… not UHT and chai lattes that aren’t expired
Laundry on demand and no more fear of being late to switch it over
Going outside and my hair not getting frizzy
A job that means I need to get up, get showered and be a normal person instead of just staying in bed all day while I figure out what I want to be when I grow
Wandering Cost Plus with Katie and Allison and trying out sofas and over sized chairs… someday I’ll have a reason to buy them again
Subway lunch with dad just like old times
Finding ThredUp and my first order arrived and was perfect
The Value Village truck is right near and I can keep simplifying and donating my old stuff
Finally getting Mexican food and getting to spend three hours with Anna catching up and making plans
Starting my own new Thursday night tradition with wine and candles a movie
Successfully navigating the highways and remembering the back roads
A little taste of “home” in my favorite little Dutch mug
Friends who are patient with me as I still try to get settled and have a lot of grace for me not returning phone calls or messages right away
Successfully pumping gas by myself for the first time in years without needing to ask for help with the automatic card thing
Reading a current magazine and not getting it three months later
Windsor’s sense of humor and knowing we can still make each other laugh
Flights for Scotland booked!
And flights for the Colorado debrief in November booked!
Just a few days until I get to see Tami again!
