Hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July! We met some friends for lunch, and then more friends for dinner. It was a late bedtime for L but worth it!
So let’s pretend we’re meeting up for coffee or tea, okay? We’d settle into a local cafe (I like Brasil’s Cafe in Houston). I’d get a latte and ask what’s going on with you and listen to the latest joys and stresses in your life.
After sharing, you might ask how things are going with the move.
I’d explain that we’re not nearly as stressed out as we should be for a cross country move, largely because his job is reimbursing movers and packers, so we went with both for the first time ever.
I’d share that I’m a little nervous to see how L will adjust when she realizes her friends will no longer be part of her world, but I’m glad she’s a social butterfly and makes friends easily.
You might ask what the latest is on the adoption saga and I’d sigh and roll my eyes and say not much. We’ve worked out all possible scenarios and haven’t found any great options, but we’re going attempt to make it work with our current agency which will involve some sacrifices on our part.
I’d leave it at that, unless you pressed for details, at which point I’d fill you in and ask what you would do.
I’d share how much I’m loving being self-employed and helping others with their health or running goals, and we’d talk about your exercise routine and how your job is going.
Then we’d finish the last few sips of our drinks and recognize it’s time to get going.
What’s your favorite coffee shop drink? What else do you think we’d talk about?
