It’s starting to seem like the trick to getting through the week is to have a wild weekend ahead. And by wild, I mean I’m going to do nothing but play Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX all weekend. I am a responsible adult, obviously, and looking forward to PMD has not made this Weekly Wrap shorter, not a bit.
Well, maybe a little? But there’s still some new things to talk about, so drop on in!
Life Beyond the Blog
My excitement for PMD is essentially taking over, but I did have a really big breakthrough this week in terms of mental health: I got a diagnosis at last, and it also means I’m starting medication! I’m a little nervous, but I think that’s just my usual nervousness talking. This is something new, and it could make for some really important changes. Nerves seem…normal, all things considered.
But ultimately, I feel relieved to know this is happening. Even if it doesn’t work, it means I have a plan on how to deal with the stuff going on in my life and in my head, and it means I’ve got people in my corner to help me out. That’s such a huge change, and it means a lot to me, even as it makes me anxious in the same breath.
Also on the plus side, I planned my next embroidery project (though it’s on hold…because PMD)! I’m excited to give it a try, because it’s going to require some new techniques, but it’s also going to celebrate something bookish. That’s a winning combo, if you ask me.
On the negative side, I’m still quite upset that the dream I had about adopting two new bunnies who wanted to cuddle was only a dream. They were gray mini lops and they just hopped into Dream Me’s lap to snuggle. Truly tragic, waking up to find they’re not real.
Of course, I do have real buns that I love very much, so to close this section, have a picture of my beautiful boy in his fancy new cape! He needs it to protect an injury while it heals, and he is looking great!

The Week Ahead
Like I said, I mostly see PMD in my future. But next Tuesday is a very important date (not just because I’m voting in my state’s primaries!), and I have something planned that I’m excited to share with you all. 💛 I also need to read a couple more books and write a couple more reviews, since the depressive funk really jumped in the way of getting new content out the door, but I actually have the time off available to do so. Woo!
I’m also hoping to make tracks on that new embroidery project, and to take a realistic look at this year’s goals. I may have gotten in over my head, and with it being three months into the year already (what the heck), it doesn’t hurt to sit and reflect.
All in all, not a busy busy week, but busy enough. I’ll certainly be occupied!
I hope you’ve been having an excellent week, and that next week is even better. See you around!
