Trust me—I’m just as shocked as you are.
[Background for those of you who haven’t been following me for years: I started something I called the ‘weekly perk’ way back in 2016. I posted (weekly, obviously) with anything good I could think of. After a while, coming up with things to write started to stress me out—very much the opposite of why I started in the first place. Since then, I’ve tried to revive it a number of times, changing the name to simply ‘the perk’ so I wouldn’t feel pressure to post weekly. I haven’t posted one since last November.]
Three things. I have three things that I feel are perk-like.
I am really excited for the April A to Z Challenge that starts tomorrow. I have *all* of my posts already written. That has never happened before, and I’ve been doing this challenge every April since 2016. I’m sure I’ll end up doing some editing because I can’t help but proofread everything I write, like, 90 times, but that’s fun for me. I love editing. I didn’t write the letters in order. I skipped around. The first one I wrote was w and the last was x. (Don’t ask me the order of the rest. I have no idea.) Anyway, I really hope you enjoy reading what I’ve written as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.
I hope I’m not jinxing myself, but yesterday and today have been better with my daughter. She was talking to me and being nice to me. Last night, she was hanging out with me in my room. She was even a little clingy at times. I hope things remain good. And I really hope last night wasn’t just a fluke because of the special event we were waiting for… and that brings me to…
Last night at midnight, Shawn Mendes officially released a new song. (Full disclosure: I’d already heard it because I have connections. To youtube.) My daughter and I waited impatiently until 11:50 when Shawn did a live stream until the video was shown at midnight. It was totally worth the wait. I love this man (even though I’m too old for him).

p.s. — I want cake.
