I am so overwhelmed by this past week that I don’t even know what to draw about. Its been an emotional roller coaster. I’ll give you a recap of the highlights and lowlights
(Is that a real term or just a hair term?)
(term….term……why does that sound so weird? Is it a real word?)
(Quit thinking and draw)
When did it all start? Monday maybe? It was a rough time for me. It was an all time low. Want to know why? Because I woke up and found pop-tarts in the cabinet.
I have never REALLY consumed pop-tarts in the morning. And on Monday I only ate 1, but man I crammed that thing into my face like nobody’s business.
The feelings of sickness were immediate. I was shocked by my own nausea. Stupid iced pastry. Never. Again.
But that morning was followed by a magnificent evening. It was only a split-second, but as I was driving home from Lynn’s house, the sun was setting. I saw some palm trees. And a blinky Mexican Food sign. And then my radio passed a Tejano station. And I felt like I was somewhere else.
And I liked it.
And the nice young man behind the window began to chat. And you know me. I don’t do “chat”.
And if I do, its nothing but ridiculous nonsense.
And so then he said some things….
And I said some things…..
…and I waited….
…and waited for my drink.
I even played a game of scrabble on my phone. And then the guy said something along the lines of….
And I looked down and saw my drink sitting there in my console….
And so, I drove away fast.
But the highlight of my week was that my sister-in-law (of Walgreens-guy fame) decided to get married on Friday. On a ranch!
And I got my very first ever pair of cowboy boots! Yeehaw!
But most of my nights (and wee morning hours) this week were spent making slipcovers for 18 bales of hay.
