Lest I sound all doom and gloom here, rest assured that most of the doom is in the job-hunting department. I have been cooking delicious food (last night: oyster mushroom stir-fry with chicken. Sometime this week: long-cooked beef shank sauce over polenta). I have been enjoying time with the kids (paper airplanes a go go yesterday; a trip to the main library tomorrow). I have been watching sports (sorry, Niner fans). I have been having people over for good company and planning on more company. I have been rearranging the house, putting things in bins and boxes, swapping shelves and dressers. I met with a mediator and have a rough divorce timeline and interim agreements in place.

There are chickens in the yard next door who like to escape and fill the morning with the sounds of their antics. I am working on my side hustle(s). G. is cooking breakfast on weekend mornings and we are singing in the car together. The kids are having a growth spurt and I just replaced half their pajamas; they will need new shoes soon. The Christmas decorations are back in the basement and the kids are anxious to start making valentines for everyone. Everyone. You too.
