This month knocked me on my butt. Obviously…Caleb. Losing my beloved companion has been…overwhelming. And there are other issues going on right now that I can’t discuss openly. I kinda feel like I’m being held underwater and I just can’t get up for a full breath of air. It’s not a good feeling. But…even when you feel that way, what are you gonna do? You just have to keep…doing life. Wake up. Put on clothes. Go to work. Put food in your body. Pay bills. Lather Rinse Repeat. Blog. Ha. Hardly one of life’s necessities…but it’s something I enjoy doing…and sharing with you guys, and reading your comments and having conversations. So here I go.
My Top 3 posts of May
Normally I share my three favorite looks from other people’s blogs, but other than posting myself I was barely on the net (or computer!) at all in May. I was, however, obsessed with tv and movies. I spent many hours, afternoons, entire days just watching movie after movie after movie, or what I referred to as “other people’s stories,” so I could forget about my own for a little while. It did help. Not that there was a lot of great stuff on tv, but…
At the actual movies (still loving Movie Pass! #notsponsored), I really liked Disobedience.
At home, streaming, I lovedlovedloved One Mississipi, a 2-season series on Amazon Prime with comedian Tig Notaro. Am so disappointed that it was such a short run.
And Breathe…also on Amazon Prime Video.
That’s enough “watching” for one month! I didn’t read as much in May as I have been (all that tv!), but my favorite was Before We Were Yours. Based on real-life accounting of a Memphis-based adoption organization that kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country from the 1930s to the 1950s, told through the story of fictional characters–5 siblings taken from their “river” parents when their mother was rushed to the hospital with labor complications while having twins. The story is heart-breaking but well-told and captivating.
I have no products to recommend as I really didn’t buy much of anything this month. A bottle-brush. Ha. Haven’t had it long enough to recommend or not. I wasn’t even online browsing, so…I will just wrap up this sad little Month in Review with my 1 Second Every Day video….and try to have a little more life in my life in June.
