    Everyone sleeping? 😢

    I’m thinking about how we encourage women to be confident until they’re actually confident and then we resent them. Do better

    So we resent them? I think some are intimidated by a confident person in general be it man or woman but resent?

    On a side note isn't resent a weird word....must be confusing for a non English speaker to think why are they re sending women for confidence 🤣

    Yeah, in my experience resent is accurate. I double checked with Google for the definition. It says a feeling of indignation or bitterness. It’s true that I can’t necessarily assess a persons interior emotions or motives but that seems about right.

    Yes it is a weird word

    Eta: I think some people make the mistake of thinking that a confident person doesn’t just think well of themselves but rather thinks better of themselves than they do of anyone else. I can think I’m awesome while I also think you are awesome

    Just finished a 4 mile walk with a friend. We normally have coffee after, but not today.
    Today we had coffee first... mixing it up.

    Glad you’re incorporating a little variety

    I was at Sam's buying groceries yesterday and all I kept thinking about was I only have to really make dinner for me now. My oldest is moving out next week. My other younger kids don't eat what I make and I almost cried 😭 It's hitting me hard now that she's leaving.

    I am borderline obsessed with picking enough blackberries for a cobbler.
    cidjhbo9oxrm.jpg I usually have a coffee cup in the car, but not today. Had to improvise...
    And now I need to buy more Tecnu poison ivy scrub...

    Oh thank you, but I'm fine. I'm actually not sure I even got into any poison ivy. BUT, I did brush past a lot of viny stuff (we have a lot of Virginia Creeper here - I'm sensitive to that) and some brambles scratched my arms. If you get into poison ivy or oak and use this stuff right after, it's a great preventative measure - like magic fairy dust. It completely washes away the oils that cause the rash and itching. I always make sure to have a tube of it on-hand.

    This is good information, thank you. I’m going to share it with a friend who is sensitive. And isn’t it funny how Virginia creeper is so often where you find poison ivy?

    Crazy how soon that starts! With work/activities/friends half the time I only have 2 kids at home. Hugs mama, I’m excited for your oldest.💗

    I mean, I guess they are trying.. or at least staffing. I might try to get an interview just so I can ask some questions.

    One time I made the very bold move of putting the MFP CEO as my crush in the crush thread. I really hope people don’t think that’s why I got the job.
