I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day! It's been a busy week here, but my mom is finally relaxing on vacation and visiting my brother in Colorado. She definitely will benefit being way from all drama with my grandparents; she's been stressing and worrying way too much that it's been impacting her health. I got my friends and my "second mom" (the mom of my best friend since 6th grade) some flowers, and they were super excited about it. They all hung out at my house, too, and it was so great seeing them and chatting with them. Iris had a blast playing, giving me a "stingray hat," and building "kitty playhouses." It was a fun weekend.
My dream recall was a complete blur when I woke up on Monday morning (but that's likely from being up late hanging out with friends at a bonfire and getting only 3 hours of sleep). When I woke up Tuesday morning, dream recall was still kind of fuzzy, but I could remember some details. It seemed to be some gathering to go stargazing. As I was making my way through the town, I noticed some alarming developments, such as the fact that there were a lot of tanks all of a sudden. It was super concerning, and I remember feeling quite wary about it. Then the tanks started firing at things in the sky (I'm guessing it was a space craft). Authorities started cracking down and forcing people to go into lockdown. I didn't particularly enjoy that dream.
It was super tempting to go back to sleep on Wednesday morning; it was an extra groggy morning with rain. Dream recall was murky, specific details were elusive. Dream recall wasn't really any easier Thursday morning, and it was even more tempting to go back to sleep. I think there was something about meeting up with people to do like repair tasks or something. It was a bit tempting to go back to sleep Friday morning, but I could remember a bit from my dream. There was a lot of rain in the dream--like an absurd amount. Wherever I was, I looked out the back window towards the backyard and witnessed a bunch of flooding. The backyard was weirdly positioned/designed; there was this huge dip due to being on like a hill, and all the rain had basically made a pond/lake. It was interesting and a bit strange. That's all I could remember upon waking, though. Friday night/Saturday morning involved some dream of meeting some kind of love interest for one of my friends; I don't think she currently knows this individual in the waking world, but who knows.
The boys were their typical selves and full of creativity. Monday afternoon the younger brother came out from school announcing that Don Banana had died, stabbed 12 times by the Lollipop Gang at 9:30. Apparently, Don Banana had saved the children and died a hero. They're super excited for the end of the school year, eager for summer break and some down time. The younger brother even went on a field trip to Six Flags. It was a fun week.
Tsuki was her typical goofy self this week. She enjoyed chilling on the couch with me (before attacking) as well as inside of boxes and underneath the table. Tsuki enjoyed her cozy cat naps, snuggling, fresh air on the porch, and plenty of birdwatching. She's so adorable, cute, and fluffy; we're so lucky to have this silly cat in our lives.

I hope you're taking care of yourself; make sure to show yourself some love. Being kind to others is important, but showing yourself kindness is just as vital. It can be easy to fall into the trap of being too critical, harsh, and judgmental with oneself. We all want to be the best we can be, and it can be tough when we don't quite measure up to our desired goal. Be gentle with yourself, though, because you're doing the best you can, and it's a process. Give yourself time and grace. You've got this! Any dream you have can become your life, so believe in yourself and treat yourself with loving kindness! Give yourself a little TLC with some self-care and watch the magic unfold! Stay blessed with love and light, everyone~
