What is helping me: warm beverages, girlfriends, living room dance parties with husband and child, snacks, sex, snacks, the wood stove. Snacks. Snacks.
And, the book Wedding Toasts I'll Never Give by Ada Calhoun. So funny. Laughed out loud at the library multiple times. I showed Jared the passage on "Marriage Math", a special method of financial accounting. He snorted and later stole the book for his own.
I stole it back and am now in deeper, deeper into the pages and the content gets deeper, too. It is funny, tender, and real.
I admire Ada's writing style. Personal, funny, poetic, and she's well-read, too. An inspiration.
