My weekend – what did I do? Absolutely nothing!
Icleaned the house (kitchen and living room, more correctly) Saturday. Not the spare room, which needs it desperately. I also washed both cars. But the laundry was not done.
The husband was away for soccer and work, so my company was limited. But Sam joined me (freely I’d like to add) in the couch Saturday. But there was nothing to watch on the TV or streaming services and there was to energy do do something else.
Yesterday, I took a 10 min date with a friend I hadn’t seen in years by the train tracks and a beach walk with the dog.
Yep, I guess that summarizes it. Joined the not working husband to a floor ball game on Sunday night, more to have done SOMETHING together. But I would say that I could have done more this weekend. But at least I got rested.

When reading “stuff” on social media I get surprised (?)/sadden (?) about how many who dislike themselves and what they have/haven’t done.
I don’t wonder why. That’s pretty obvious. But why is it hard for folks to like themselves?
What happen in my life that made me think that I’m an awesome person, just like I am.
And then I don’t think so much about other people and continue to enjoy myself.

Found this, and lots of other memorabilia, in a bag my parents had saved.
The note with number and address the Mr gave me when we first met 25 years ago. Blessed to have found him and to continue loving him.
I don’t know if it was a blessing or not that I didn’t realize our fab looks.

Mr F broke his arm 1.5 hrs into the ski vacation in the Austrian alps. The Dock children and their skiing traditions…
Never the less. The Mr and I discussed shortly if F should fly home by him self. And a couple of hours later they called. My loving parents. 80 years old, they come to the rescue. Saying if he fly home by himself, he should stay with them (as I’m working). Best role models available.

Can you feel it? How its disappearing? How its slipping away right at your fingertips?
We know that our children are only a loan. They are only “yours” for a tiny time. Ours are leaving, I have a hard time understanding this. That soon it is me and the Mr only. Again. Before that I desperately try to squeeze what childhood that’s left from them.
Where it it go? Did I use it wisely? The time together we had with our children?

I dislike people who, late in the game, throws in information. Information that people who is on top of things already is aware of and maybe already used.
And the only reason for throwing it in, is to show that he is “contributing” . The problem is that he is not. The only thing he is contributing to is market himself (and the question is, as the people working with him sees it as marketing as he creates more mess). But not the common aim.
In today’s world. Working with high performers, there is no time for “look at me”. No, we look at the result and if you are late in the game, you need to adapt to what the smart people of action already have done. Preferably be asking a quick question before “contributing”.
