Week 24: Hamilton
I have been listening to it NON-STOP!
I bought the entire soundtrack for $2.00 (LEGALLY) when it was on sale for that price on Google Music. The show has its hooks in me (as it does in so many other people I know). Fiona's a fan, too, and we love to exchange tidbits of knowledge we've gained about the show, the production, the actors. She is going to GO SEE IT in June and I am so very jealous.Week 25: Hope
I'm seeing a glimmer of light on my journey.
This image depicts a woman on a journey (remember Week 3, Embark, the last card on this post
?) who sees a lighthouse shining from shore and starts to feel a little bit of hope. This was the week I learned I had been given a grant by the Dislocated Workers Program from the State of Minnesota. I am going to be receiving training in a lot of the concepts and programs I need to have to change careers from legal administrative assistant to marketing.Week 26: Dance
This was the week of Excellent Cancer News.
I picked this picture from The Tutu Project
, one of the amazing photographs taken by Bob Carey in support of his wife Linda Carey, who has been battling breast cancer. Yeah, okay, we're not battling breast cancer here, but it's about the spouse of someone with cancer. It's trying to bring humor and happiness to something that's often very grim. It just seemed to fit this time. Week 27: Training
I begin to learn new things.
Hubspot Academy Inbound Marketing. Landing pages. Adobe InDesign. A/B testing. Etc. Let's hope it will result in a new career direction.Week 28: Caucus
I took Fiona, and we both did our civic duty.
Fiona and I were both agonizing as we walked through the door until I hit upon a simple solution: "I'll vote for Hillary. You vote for Bernie. We'd be happy to vote for either one in the general election." And that's what we did.Week 29: Flu
Everthing is a painful, feverish blur.
The flu hit both Rob and me HARD. Think gray mindlessness, with fever and aches lurking below. I started on Wednesday of that week. After a week and a half, I ended up at the hospital, getting intravenous fluids. The flu shot didn't do a damn thing for me.
|Week 30: |
Nothing will get accomplished today.
Yes, this is still a one word title. Well, a word combined with a graphic.
This card was created because I became impatient after four days of the flu. Surely I should be getting better by now? I kept fretfully listing off things to Rob that I should be doing. He lay in bed beside me, sick as I was, and replied "Not today." And when I tried to stagger out of bed and take three steps, I would fall back into bed and repeat after him, "Not today." The whole week was like that.
