I can’t sleep and just keep thinking. I am thinking about things and life. I started writing a new story. Oh yeah I am a writer, if you didn’t already know. I have the stacks of rejections to prove it. That is what they say right?
I have failed. Not really like it is a surprise, but for the life of me, I can’t seem to keep this stuff up. I have started therapy, so that is an improvement. So much has happened in life though and I am not even sure where I stand.
I am tired. It has been quite a busy week at work. I work in HR in benefits and we have been preparing for open enrollment. Normally open enrollment isn’t a hectic time for the team I am on but before has been super busy getting prepared. Hopefully it goes smoothly.
Besides work life has been up and down. Things with my husband have been good for the most part. He has his moments when he complains about me but for the most part it is good. We both have issues and sometimes we can’t be the support we need. I have come to realize and accept that but he struggles with it. I try to be understanding but sometimes it is difficult.
We all have struggles and we all have ways of dealing with those struggles. Now going to therapy I am learning things to help with stress and ways to cope. I know certain things but sometimes it is hard when you are in the moment to remember.
So I have been quite as I watch the chaos around me and my city. Texas has been hit hard and though I am lucky it is still hard to watch. I know people who have lost everything. There are those who lost their lives. Sadly the stories just keep on coming both good and bad.
I am proud to be part of this city and state. It has gone through a lot and there are things I want to say but being in the midst of it. I am still waiting for the dust to settle so to speak. I want to write and just typing this is good. I have found that focus has been hard the past few days. Hopefully that gets better.
Thanks for all the well wishes and thoughts that have come our way. For all of those working hard to make sure the city comes out on its feet. There is so much left to do. The coming weeks and months will be difficult for all. We must keep going.
A storm is coming to the Texas gulf coast. You would think it is the end of the world. People stocking up. We just got home from getting some stuff but man it was rough. We started at one place but no bread or water. No bread or water.
Stupid pre orders and stupid companies that don’t make enough of their products. Today the pre orders for the SNES classic went live. They came and went. It is just like Nintendo to put something out and screw everyone over. Why do we subject ourselves to it? We want to I guess.
Because today everything is about the eclipse why not? I honestly didn’t care much about it but then my mom bought me the viewing glasses. I took them to work and thought I wonder if I will use them.
It was a huge event across the country. Some places had fill eclipse but we just had partial. Looking at it through the glasses was quite an experience. It was really neat to see the sun covered.
Like most days. Today I am tired. I woke up feeling a bit under the weather. It seems something is going around work. I am trying not to catch it but my focus is more than lacking.
