😎 Ginny shared a bunch of stuff from buymebrunch.com, including this fabulous poster. I also shared it with Matt, who found it mesmerizing.

😎 I called my grandma and talked to her about visiting and moving, and it was very soothing. 

😎 And I ordered sunglasses! With my new prescription so I can see well and in the sun!

🐓 Jurassic Park 3: “This facility was not well built”

🐓 Breakfast for dinner brunch and Guardians of the Galaxy with unicorn gang! I love these guys

🐓 Recovery day with lots of Nellie snuggles and carbs. Also finished the new Scalzi book. Way to take care of yourself Echo ✋. Also managed to get paperwork from the last seven years sorted and shredded.

🍉 This way too enthusiastic sticker, which I liberated from its seedless watermelon to this pole.

🍉 I sorted a big box of ‘things younger me thought were worth keeping.’ I discovered a few treasures, a lot of junk, what looks like $10 in change, and a bunch of rocks that I can’t bring myself to sort yet. I’m making good progress on yard sale / packing, trying to move from the outside in.

🍉 Got in some excellent hammock/cat/sunshine time. I’m working to make sure I balance the emotionally activating stuffs with self care.

🐝Look out bees!

🐈🐈🐱 Also got to snuggle with all three cats within the last hour.

🐝 Had a good conversation with my brother. I’m glad that I thought to reach out to him for grounding.

🐝 Kept chipping away at yard sale / packing. I’m not sure why the anxiety isn’t getting in my way more, but I’m glad to be able to get stuff done.

👘 Devoured ‘Faking It’ while having a stay-in, self-care day. Taking it easy and restoring my equilibrium was a good idea.

👘 I did go out for a bit to hang out with Anna though, and that was nice as well. I haven’t seen her in a while and I got food. I’m glad I decided that putting on pants would be worth it.

👘 Finished another embroidery; also a present so no pics yet. But I got it done in a short number of days because I spent a lot of time working on it.

🌈 Unicorn ninja day! For me that meant honoring my inclination to not go to work in favor of grocery shopping, working on embroidery, and binging on The Good Wife. (Also some positive self-reflection.)

🌈 Introduced a friend to Superbetter so we can be self-care buddies. Supporting someone else and asking for help at the same time.

🌈 Now that I’m incorporating more self-care tools I also started using SB to help break MOVING down into smaller, less panic inducing, steps.

Superpowers / Signature Strengths.

1. Humor and playfulness.
Helps me to connect both with people I don’t know very well, and with people I do. Lets me be open to new experiences even if there’s a high probability of failure or looking silly.

2. Honesty, authenticity, and genuineness.
This is the hardest one for me to see the value in, because I don’t understand what it would be like to not be this way. Makes my compliments more powerful because people know that I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t believe it. It helps me be open to new people, and to accept them as they want to be seen.

3. Appreciation of beauty.
This allows me to find happiness and beauty in the smallest and most everyday things. It opens up so many avenues for joy to enter my life.

4. Love of learning.
This one enables me to be genuinely interested in other people’s lives, stories and interests. It also enables me to keep discovering new interests and skills.

5. Bravery and valor.
This is the strength and ability to protect the people I love, and to tell people that what they’re saying is offensive / hurtful. It also let’s me continue with things that may be scary to me.

🐊 New episode of Doctor Who was awesome. Glad Ryan suggested watching it /brought it over. Also then Ems came over and I got irresponsibly drunk with him and Ginny.

🐊 I had a really good time helping my mom work on her books. Used my dormant bookmaking knowledge and a bone folder. Was creative and relaxing.

🐊 New glasses! Finally managed to line up all my steps and get new lenses! Now I can see better and they aren’t all scratched and mysterious-junked up.

🐝 THIS. 

🐝 I have a friend who’s been frustrated with fb lately for delivering so much negativity. So when I saw a story that made me happy (‘Geologic mystery solved with science’) I posted it to his wall. He appreciated it and that made me feel like I was a good friend, and i also felt connected.

🐝 I’ve still been getting lots of positive responses to my post about moving from yesterday. It makes me glad that I decided to broadcast something (semi-)personal to a wider audience.

🐝 There was a cute customer at work who was making lots of eye contact with me, and I was able to make eye contact back! And it was mostly fun and only a little flustery. (Not to mention the cute girl who called me beautiful as she was leaving yesterday.)
