Matthew here with an update a day later. Some social plans got made for Tuesday night with not much notice. I let this update go by the wayside for that time, which was fine; I hope you’ll forgive me. I did want to find time to post this, but it was just better to focus on what was going on.
While I did not write all I wanted, it was better than a little. And that will become a broken record if I say that every week. No, I haven’t been writing 500 or more words a day.

Gonna schedule a third massage to get rid of leftover tension from the first two amazing ones.

“Wow. Just wow. Nope. That’s all she wrote.” He gestured at her and her brother. “They’re just about to shine a big old spotlight at us.”
“You wanted to do it… and it worked. Okay… thats progress! Might as get a move on talking more boys, because you still aren’t going anywhere,” said her brother.
Now was the time to release the weight from her mind.
