I woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed so I did our taxes. If that isn’t nonsensical, I don’t know what is. The annual task usually makes me extremely grumpy, but this year it acted as a respite that allowed me to focus on something other than current world events.
This afternoon, Makiya and I went out and indulged in a little G&G (grandmother/granddaughter) time with a smattering of retail therapy. We had a great time together! It’s the first Saturday since the mask mandates have been dropped in British Columbia and, though there were still plenty of masks being worn, it felt so refreshing to see people’s faces again.
I’m exhausted after our little expedition and look forward to a quiet evening enjoying take-out pizza for supper and some British detective TV later. What started out as a day when I said half-joking that I felt like I was going to have a heart attack from the pressure I was feeling is ending up peaceful and quiet. Plus, I got our taxes done. Bonus.
