But if I'm honest, there are some other things that have been helping keep me out of the neverending spiral of fear and anxiety.
1. Going bug-catching with my nerdler husband. Rob's in a Conservation Bio class and part of his project is to catch and [humanely] kill butterflies, damselflies, and dragonflies to study them. For those of you who find this cruel, keep in mind that the insects would be dying soon anyway because of frost and feel no pain.
2. Watching a friend's team kick ass at their rugby game and enjoy inexplicable 80-degree temperatures.
3. Going on a quiet walk with just my beastie and enjoying the fall.
These things help me feel grounded and happy. No matter what is going on outside, I know I always have my adoring husband and my slobbery, but lovely, beastie-pie. Sorry to get all mushy on you but, what can I say? I'm a lucky lady.
Also, I might be getting a spontaneous tattoo this week. NBD.
