Do you have/have you ever had a personalized license plate? What does it read? What does it mean?
I decided to personalize my license plate when I bought my new car in February. It says "LUV 4 CFD." It means love for Columbus Fire Dept - because I am so very proud to be a part of it! (My partner is a union member, but it feels very personal, since our families sacrifice a lot as a whole!)

What, if anything, has been stressing you out lately?
2 weeks ago we had a massive amount of water back-up in our main living room of our apartment, and since then, our apartment had been partially packed up. We weren't buying groceries in anticipation of moving so we've been eating like shit (ordering in) and nobody is feeling well lately. In fact, just the past couple of days, both my fiance and toddler have become sick with a sore throat/cough. On top of it, I found out something very disturbing and hurtful about my dad last weekend. It affects me because we used to be so close. Although I'm not comfortable sharing specifics, it has tarnished our relationship, and I don't think I'll ever be able to look at him the same way again. It's really sad for me, and it's been difficult. I feel much better than I did last week, though. With all the stressors of moving, it's just hard not to feel like "everything" is going wrong! However, I am super excited to go to a wedding on Saturday and just RELAX.
