I have been up since 4am with this guy. He woke up around that time and got sick twice. Then he wouldn’t sleep unless I was holding him (I’m not complaining, I love my Walty snuggles). We got out of bed around 6:30 because he was too restless. He wouldn’t eat breakfast (if you know Walter, you know it’s bad when he won’t eat).
This past Friday was my last day at a job I had for seven years. It was my first job out of graduate. First job in my field of study. While I gained some valuable experience at this job, I am excited to move on and continue my career elsewhere.
Walter and I went on a nature walk at Sunset Park this weekend. We walked 2.5 miles at this beautiful park near my house. This park has a paved trail to walk on that is surrounded by nature. At the end of the trail there is a beautiful gravel bar leading out to the water.
Sometimes we forget things. A birthday. A phone call. A text. A broken jar. A broken pot. Sometimes I even forget to eat dinner or go to the bathroom (I know, how does one forget to go to the bathroom? Trust me, it happens).
I never realized that we had all of these flowers that come up in the backyard gardens. They are absolutely gorgeous and great the photography. My parents have the same flowers that grow on the side of their house.
Sometimes after work, I grab Walter and we go to the park. I love clearing my head at the end of a long work day by walking the trails.
Some days my anxiety is so bad that I feel like I can't get through the day. My mind won't stop replaying things. I can't stop thinking worst case scenario. There is nothing, that I can figure out, that triggers these bad days. They just happen.
Remembering those who have fallen.
Sometimes I like just going for a drive to clear my head. I turn the music up and just drive. My favorite places to do this are on small backroads. They always have such great scenery.

This past weekend, I went out and practiced with my macro attachment again. I really want to invest in a dedicated macro lens eventually. It's just not quite in my budget right now.
March has been quite a difficult month. On March 6, my father's birthday, he had a massive heart attack. What he thought was just heart burn and indigestion, turned out to be much worse. Since he waited so long to go to the hospital (thinking it wasn't anything major) he now has permanent damage on his heart.
