Losing money in Atlantic City last week was more fun than earning it here this week. The atmosphere here is still kinda toxic. Not directed at me, thank goodness but taxing nonetheless.
I've been productive, have helped folks where I could, and kept below the RADAR as best I could. It seems to be working, as a short-term strategy, anyway.
And, while I don't want to jinx anything, I may have a chance to start a project that would definitely recharge my batteries. I'm to talk about it over cups of caffeinated beverages next Thursday. I get to meet with someone I've known for years in the DC poverty law community. We don't know each other well, but we've always been cordial. I'm excited. More on this, if and as events warrant.
My mother-in-law is visiting this weekend. We like each other, which is a blessing. She and my mom didn't really know one another until they bonded over planning our wedding nearly 17 years ago. Their relationship since then is another blessing.
So it's 4:50 pm on a Friday, and I'm ready to head out the door feeling productive and hopeful --- and I'm looking forward to enjoying my mother-in-law's company and enjoying the delight she takes in Monkeyboy.
Life doesn't exactly suck.
Have a good weekend y'all.
