    Work is still insane! But I haven’t cried yet this week (as of 3 pm on Monday) so that’s a move in the right direction. I spent the long weekend with my family which was nice but also exhausting. I’ve been reading this article in snippets and it’s rather intriguing: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/07/08/the-lingering-of-loss

    The teaser reads, “My best friend left her laptop to me in her will. Twenty years later, I turned it on and began my inquest.” How could you not want to know what was in the laptop???

      I hope you made it through the rest of the work day without crying! And I’m sorry that work is so crazy.

    I recently had some blood work done. Turns out, I am deficient in Vitamin D. Like REALLY deficient. The doctor said it is the lowest Vitamin D count she has ever seen. I don’t want to get my hopes up and think that Vitamin D supplements are going to be a magic cure, but I Googled my various health concerns with Vitamin D deficiency, and it’s related in a few of them.

    I also have other supplements to try. I’m also low in Zinc and Vitamin B. But D was the big one. I’m throwing this out there because if you have a health concern that doctors have shrugged their shoulders at, maybe get tested for vitamin deficiencies?

      My magic supplement is magnesium. I didn’t get tested but it was recommended by the urologist for preventing kidney stones, and it has the happy side effect of stopping horrible foot cramps. 2 birds with one pill. On the last scan, some of the stones had dissolved!

    • Tracey says:

      I have the same vitamin D problem! I take 50,000 units per week and I’m still deficient. I hope that taking supplements helps you, it’s true that vitamin D affects a lot of stuff in your body.

    This weekend was good. Went to a 4th of July party, saw a fireworks show, binge watched A LOT of Veronica Mars.

    I would like to throw out a word of caution. I got hit by a firework at the party I went to. The tube that they shoot out of tipped over, and fired at the people in the yard. I was super lucky that it didn’t hit my skin directly – it hit my pants – but it left a little burn and a bruise that looks much worse than it is. I don’t think anyone else got hurt either, so it was very lucky for all. It could have been so much worse. Be careful out there everyone!

    • Kate says:

      Wow! We gave some of our fireworks to the neighbor and she loaded them into the tube upside down. That was scary, but only the neighbor’s lawn got hurt thank goodness.

      I’m excited about the new Veronica Mars content! When does that come out?

    I finished season 2 of Barry last night. Usually I am wary of dark comedy, because the tone is so hard to get right — and if they miss the mark, you end up with something that’s not funny but just grotesque, which gives me a bad feeling. But Barry is hilarious and so, so stressful in the right way.

    I also watched A Star Is Born. A friend told me it was awful and boring and took her two chore-like sittings, so I hit “play” figuring I’d quit in 15 minutes. But I couldn’t look away, and it flew by. Pretty good movie!

      Barry is great! I caught a random episode at someone’s house and started watching from the beginning but I’m only a few episodes in. I just listened to the Bill Hader interview on Armchair Expert, and it’s great! He started as a PA, intending to do drama, then got into improv and was discovered by Megan Mullally, who told Lorne Michaels about him. I’m not going to spell check any of those names. Anyhow, he talks about overcoming his anxiety on SNL and a bunch of other interesting stuff.
