shannatrenholm When you're hanging out at a bar, alone, and you don't drink, but you're waiting for the band to start (lots of eye rolling happening). 11h

shannatrenholm Couldn't even wait to take a photo before digging in to the yummy nachos at @moncaivegancafe (so you'll have to imagine what it looked like before we started demolishing them). 2d

shannatrenholm Some days are harder than others. That's probably the most obvious understatement of the century.

When you live with chronic illness and exhaustion as I do, waking up each day is always an adventure (using the word *adventure* is my attempt at putting a positive spin on it). Some days I wake and it feels as if I'm being pushed back onto the pillow by some invisible force. On those days, I get up and take Milo out, barely making it around the block, and then return and fall back into bed. It's as if someone drained my blood.
Today, although the morning was a bit rough, I rallied and did several things. I took my mom to the Sunday Assembly (it's like church without the church--think science and fellowship and really funny songs), then we went to lunch, ran errands, went to my favorite coffee shop (@Darkhorsecoffeeroasters) and then took Milo on a long walk--a much longer walk than I have taken since I moved back. We discovered so many neat things!
My neighborhood is gorgeous and everyone seems to have embraced water-wise gardening. Today was a good day and I still have energy for laundry and a little bit of work.
Tomorrow? It's an unknown quantity.
