1. My Dad. So many connections with him as I’m planning my wedding. For one, it’s at the home of the love of his life, Holly. My “bonus” mother — they never actually married. I met Holly on my 13th birthday, and I was alternately adoring and jealous and plain old mean. And I’m glad we’ve transcended everything to be what we are today. Bonus.
2. To draw the line. To not feel like I have to be a superstar in everyone’s life all the time, and to say no. Or say nothing. Stop overextending.
3. There is infinite wisdom in iTunes’ Shuffle feature. I don’t know where the soul is on that little piece of code, but dang it if Shuffle doesn’t always know what you need to hear.
4. I have been having trouble remembering what day of the week it is. Regularly. So I’ll say, “see you tomorrow” when I mean in three days, because I’m thinking it’s a different day. Not sure how to remedy that or what to say about that.
5. I don’t have to win every round.
6. I’m lucky. I’m lucky. I’m lucky.
