Jennifer Hudson: Princess Tiana Disney Dream Portrait!
1. Macy is recovering so far and can do this tripod walk/fall thing that is both sad and cute. 2. I’m grateful that Macy is such a chill dog because being able to do the compromise with her where we don’t leave her alone but I take her literally everywhere has made this week less taxing than last week. 3. I’m grateful that everything is temporary.
As spotted by @sharpbiscuits. All bodies are worthy of love exactly as they are sticker across the street from a new york sports club. As a person who goes to the gym, NYSC’s fatphobic marketing will never get my money. I will patronize only gyms who believe in health at every size. #healthateverysize #allbodiesaregoodbodies #effyourbeautystandards
Morning gratitude: 1. Do you ever sleep with someone in a cold room who keeps stealing the covers and you get up before them and it is with a mixture of revenge and generosity that you bury them in blankets before you exit the bed? I find this strangely satisfying. 2. I’m grateful I enjoy road trips because I’m heading to the far reaches of long Island to file estate paperwork at Suffolk County Court. 3. I’m grateful for my dog, who had a pretty good day yesterday, compared with the past couple weeks.
Yeah, this moment in Orange is the New Black, moved me, too. Some people require you to look a little deeper.
I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.
Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿
HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.
But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.
By far my favorite moment in the show, both seasons. And I don’t have a thing for babies. It’s just this show, showing beautiful moments in such original ways and showing minority characters with depth… I was so moved.
I’ll be honest, I paused on my daily public gratitude posts because having an anxiety-ridden dog who is not well has been taxing on my already depleted reserves in a way I did not anticipate. But I will not allow my personal tragedies to interfere with my ability to do good hair and so the show must go on. 1. Grateful that while I have the worst sunburn I’ve had in years it’s only on a part of me I didn’t get with sunblock and I’ve had much worse. 2. Grateful to have lit a Dolly Parton shaped light at the end of the tunnel with the launch of Dollypalooza last night. It’s going to be lots of fun. 3. Grateful to be receiving free short term counseling from the Lesbian Cancer Initiative (LCI). It’s seriously been the best choice I made for self care as a caretaker during Dara’s treatment. Today I will be bringing Macy to my appointment because she can’t really be left alone right now and I’m praying she can chill out in a dog bag. (She’s not seeming in much pain anymore.)
Today is the last day to donate to Macy’s fundraiser! We’ve raised almost $2300 towards her $7000 bill from 46 people (and their animal companions)! Thank you so much to everyone who has helped us support our beloved Macy!
Macy was in a lot of pain and needed over $7,000 in diagnostics, surgical intervention and a lengthy hospital stay and we need help to make it happen.
