Day 143

I woke up just before 7 am and curled up on the sofa with a coffee. It was a strong coffee and just the fuel I needed to nudge me towards French practice. I’m still working through the new group of words and for the most part it’s smooth. Ironically anything that has to do with the words ‘study’ or ‘studying’ is where I have the most trouble.

Hubby hopped off to work and I started on today’s Doodlewash – August 2019 prompts; 9. Airplane + 24. Desert. I’m not going to lie, I really wanted the second prompt to be dessert, so I could draw a picture of someone on a plane, eating ice cream. That wasn’t to be. So I took reference from this plane and then added some cacti for that … desert feel.

All challenge drawings can be found here…

With one drawing down, I started work on tomorrows sketch. I have a pretty full morning and didn’t want to feel rushed with the drawing. Actually, my whole day will be pretty busy. The morning will be my usual ‘WoW gaming’ morning and then the afternoon will be getting the house ready for wifey.

It’s about 7 pm now and wifey will be heading to the airport in a few hours for her first flight. I’m filled with anxiety that something will go wrong again. Her first two flights will happen while I’m sleeping and will have no way of knowing until morning if it’s all gone smoothly. I feel it’s going to be another sleepless night.

There wasn’t much more to tell from my day. You may have noticed I didn’t workout today. Mentally, I feel terrible about missing a day and I never thought I’d hear myself say that about working out. Physically, my body is very glad to have three days off. It’s fatigued and pained. Thank you, Stress!

I hope you’re having a weekend filled with blessed moments, smiles and creativity. May the next week, actually, may the next month be a stress free zone in your world. You deserve it.

Happy weekend.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.

    1. That’s very true. Unfortunately stress makes my chronic pain worse and that makes it verrrrry hard to exercise. I push through it on most days. Today I’ve just had to enjoy the extra rest. xD I hope you’re keeping well. =)
