What we are eating this week:
Today is our first day back from vacation so I will be eating lettuce. Lettuce and air and some water. And then tomorrow is THANKSGIVING. Immediately followed by a month long diet of cookies, wine and side dishes.
What I’m reminiscing about:
Since I haven’t blogged in so long, I’m reminiscing about blogging. I started this blog in 2009 and it is fun to go back and read posts from years pasts. Life is so fun and full of changes.
What I’m loving:
I have so much to love. I love this guy….
I love our home and business that we have created together. Life is so good.
What we’ve been up to:
I needed this vacation more than any other vacation I have ever needed in my life!
You guys know we love what we do but sometimes owning a group home is streeeeessssful and between meetings and doctor’s appointments and paperwork, I was just dragging my body around. Anytime I talked to anyone I was complaining and sharing some sort of worry. I was sick of hearing myself talk. It felt so good to have some distance and clear our minds and rest. I came home filled up once again with gratefulness and love for our job and our life.
What I’m dreading:
Well since I just got home from vacation and have a heart full of patience, I don’t really have anything I’m dreading.
Oh, wait, yes I do.
Ugh. Why can’t everyone wash their dang hands? If your hands are not cracking open and bleeding from dryness, you aren’t washing your hands enough!
What I’m working on:
Holiday cards! And lots of other cards. I will be loading my Etsy shop soon!
What I’m excited about:
The holidays! I am looking forward to all the gatherings with friends and families.
I’m also excited to get started on my 2016 planner pages! I love making my own pages to fit exactly what I need. I’ll share as soon as I’m done!
What I’m watching/reading:
I am LOVING this book:
It’s SO GOOD. I love the way Tara writes. I love the real-life examples she gives throughout. I feel so good reading it and then sitting back and letting her words soak in and meditating on how I can apply the lessons to my life.
We are finally watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix.
What I’m listening to:
I’ll tell you what I’m NOT listening to and that’s Adele! *SOB* I haven’t heard any of her new songs. I need to do something about that.
What I’m wearing:
What I’m doing this weekend:
Decorating for Christmas! Yay!
What I’m looking forward to next month:
I’m looking forward to going to a friend’s 40th Birthday party, family dinners, a cookie exchange, and a night out with family to do an escape room.
What else is new:
I can’t really think of anything else too new that I haven’t already mentioned.
Oh, I have something new (and embarrassing). I’m not even sure how it started but I got sucked in to watching “What I Ate in a Day” videos on You Tube. Then some how I ended up on Jen’s channel and her cleaning routine. I feel ashamed to even admit that I watch someone else clean their home, BUT, from watching her morning cleaning routine, I have started cleaning all three of our bathrooms daily and it takes about 10 minutes total. It’s crazy how our house can be a wreck but if the bathrooms are clean I feel like we are in good shape!
And from watching the “What I ate in a Day” videos, I learned to make a DELICOUS zucchini soup and started drinking a daily green smoothie! More on the smoothie later! It’s so good and one of those things that I don’t really notice a difference until I don’t drink it. You know what I mean?
I have been working on this post off and on for 12 hours! Apparently, I’m a little rusty on the blog process!
