I have a lot of thinky thoughts about Slutwalk (which I think went awesome and I think I did a good job but I lack perspective) and also about Mother's Day (especially about a) being a mom who has a less-than-optimal relationship with her own mom (as are many moms of my acquaintance) and b) having been a mom for my entire adult life; literally, having never not been a mom, really, and c) parenthood in general).
Right now, though, my brain is terribly lagged and my body is about as tired as my brain. I managed to get through April and this first week of May, and the whole time I was very aware that I just had to keep pushing through til after Slutwalk, and sure enough, right after I got through that, the monthlong adrenaline surge crashed.
So no thinky thoughts for right now! Today is a rest day. I have a day off this week and two additional sleeping-in-and-writing days, and that will help.
Elayna gave me the tiniest necklace, just the word "hope" cast in resin, smaller than the base of my pinky nail. Adam gave me my own copy of Let's Bring Back
, which is great because you guys, we have so much to bring back.
And they gave me a pony. Small and stuffed, but still.
I will try to nap!
