Mom came back— I had thought she would be mad but she wasn’t—and the rest of the day went ok. Took him his snack, went and shopped for a birthday present for myself, had coffee. Did some embroidery that I ended up ripping out. That seems symbolic somehow. Sometimes you put a lot of effort into something you think is gonna be beautiful and just right, and then only when you’re well into it do you realize it actually looks like shit and you have to rip it out and start over. Well, you don’t have to, but why put more work into it if it’s never going to be right nor as pleasing as you had expected?

E did fine at school but was so tired he fell asleep on the 5 minute ride home. Slept a long time but bedtime was not noticeably later than it has been, so it was ok.

Did 15 backbend reps. Held the last 15 seconds. Gonna work it up to holding it 30 seconds, then start doing a second set I guess?

Thank you for the kind remarks about the free stuff bullshittery and my bracelets. I will say, she writes for USA Today and Forbes, she isn’t just an IG “influencer”. We’ll see. Now I’m feeling a little demand avoidant about opening the shop. I’m enjoying making the bracelets though. We’ll see.
