I finally finished weeding out the strawberry garden today.
It was completely overgrown with grass and I have been working on it for a month. Had to dig down a foot (in compacted sand and clay) and sift through to get all the grass and roots out. Pull out the strawberries and set them aside. Replant strawberries as each section got done. Backbreaking, nasty, dirty work and it is finally done.
I split up with my wife of 12 years 4 years ago. For the last 4 years, I have not met a single woman that interested me. Today I realized that I'm totally crushing on a chick I've been working with for a few months now. I always thought she was pretty, but just didn't talk to her a lot for whatever reason. And I'm pretty sure I have a shot with her if I play my cards right. Whether anything comes of it or not, I'm happy to know that my heart is ready to potentially love again after all this time.
I'm going back to school in the fall due to the stress levels of my job (mostly my boss). I resigned on the weekend because mentally I can only handle another two weeks, despite it not being the smartest financial decision. I should manage as long as I'm not an idiot with my money.
This is best I've felt mentally in about two years.

Today was a pretty rough one, but a chicken sandwich and fries for dinner, at least a couple of the decisions made at SCOTUS today, and a chance to go to bed early.
ETA: Also recently read Randy Blthye's memoir about his trial and time in a Czech prison. Saw an interview with him where when asked about the quarantine measures and such he responded "it's a lot easier than being in prison". Helps to have perspective sometimes.

It was something so little, but held a door for an older couple and the wife gave me a hug and her husband struck up a conversation for at least ten minutes. Normally it would have cranked my anxiety to 11, but I really enjoyed it and it’s made me smile all day.
