I’ve been off the writing grid for a couple of weeks now (mostly hand written journal writing since 24 June) and I am so happy to be back. I have so many words swirling in my brain it is actually very difficult to write. Let’s get with the highlights:
Conclusion: Meet-Up: The anxiety and panic attacks I gave myself before the meet-up where debilitating. Once we actually got to the restaurant and met everyone, things were a little better. Once we started playing games (all of which I have never heard of before), I was feeling the most myself. We both had so much fun that we are going back again this coming week!
4th of July: Had a nice time with the family across town. Yummy desserts and lots of fun fireworks. We also played many rounds of the game Mafia! And we all had a blast. I really, REALLY look forward to doing it again.
Satuday 08 July 2017: Is my husband’s birthday! Fun celebrations and good eats will be had. I’ve wrapped his presents and filled out his card. IF I get up early enough, he may even get breakfast in bed! (No promises!)
Gaming: I’m exciting to be playing again; however, I haven’t figured out the right timing that I want to put forth with it. Do I want to play casually? Do I want to raid casually? Can I really raid casually? I have been a Heroic/Mythic raider for most of my gaming life. This is to be determined.
Gym: I just finished my first six weeks with my new trainer and I am waiting for her to enter all of my stats in to see how well I have done. If nothing else, I am more confident and I am absolutely stronger than I used to be. I am looking forward to the change up of my routines starting next week. I will have new strength training exercises, although each day will be unique with upper body, lower body, and core days. I train with her two days a week so she gives me a fun bag mix of it all. I have learned so much about myself. I now know more of what works and what doesn’t.
And my goodness… when you believe in yourself, anything is freaking possible!
