I was indoors all day today. I stayed home sick, and the only time I stepped foot outside was to drive to my doctor's office. Golden light flooded through the trees and its warmth spilled onto my face. It made me miss our backpacking trips. Our last backpacking trip was last October. We normally don't go camping during the winter because I'm a chicken and can't brave the cold, but I really miss the tranquility, the air, the sunlight. It's different in the mountains than it is here. I'm still learning how to balance everything, but I hope I always make time to greet the wilderness and kiss her beauty.
Scott just left to hang out with the guys. I decided to stay home and research tax law and figure out how to start a business. It's a little daunting.
I've been overwhelmed, working full-time, coming home to work some more, and still make dinner and take Charlie and Sierra out for a walk. I've been forgetting to relax. In fact, Scott and I went out for the first time last week since OCTOBER. The only going out we did before then was going to Costco to pick up some groceries and toilet paper.
I don't know what I'd do without him, honestly. He has a way of making me laugh when I'm most stressed. And a way of making Costco runs feel like real dates.
Thank you for all your encouragement and support, Scott. And for all the combo slices.
