If you're wondering how I did all of this and still managed to feel the most relaxed I've felt in a long time, I am also wondering this. If you're wondering what possessed us to watch the entire LOTR extended edition over three days, that can easily be explained. It happened like so: Me: "I feel like watching Lord of the Rings." Ben: "LET'S DO IT. Normal edition or extended?" Me: (2 second pause) Extended.
I cannot explain where the impulse came from. I haven't seen any of the LOTR films in literally years, and all of a sudden one day I was like hey, I could really use some Tolkein in my life right now. Who knows.
Anyways...the last few months have just been crazy. I know I say that all the time about everything, but Ben will even back me up on this. I haven't blogged about any of it, but it has been a very stressful time work-wise. I can't get into too much detail, and don't worry everything is fine now but... it has just not been a great summer. I will say this, though. If you should ever find yourself in a position of leadership, transparency and communication are really the way to go. Really truly. Without it, shit gets toxic, especially in times of uncertainty and many layoffs. So yeah...that's all I have to say about that.
Still don't have all of the photos from Montana from my dad's camera, so those are coming later, as is a delicious Huckleberry scone recipe. I promise! It will be delicious and amazing.
Oh and also this song is wonderful:
Well, that is all for today. Happy Monday :)
