This week I am currently:
Working on: This Saturday we are having the kids over to make Mother’s Day presents! I’m super excited. So I’m working on getting the supplies for that. I’m also working on some cute little garden labels that will help me not mix up our plants, which may or may not have already happened. I’m working on an executable plan for decorating our bedroom on the cheap AND creating my editorial calendar of posts for May and June.
Thinking about: Routines. Man, I love routines. In fact, I feel crazy if we’re off of our usual routine. A few weeks ago I finally felt like we had our routine down. Life was working perfectly. And then, I got a little sick and everything came to a grinding halt, and I’m having trouble getting back to normalcy.
Anticipating: A busy few weeks ahead, but good busy — we have a lot of family commitments and social plans, which all should be really fun.
Listening to: Oh gosh, I was really excited to tell you all about the podcasts that I’m currently hooked on, but apparently this has been a three-week obsession because I talked about them last time. Oh, well, still listening to podcasts at the gym and to and from work. At work, I’m back to the Escala station on Pandora. Tell me your favorite podcast in the comments! I need more options!
Watching: We have been watching this super scary reality television show on Netflix about ghosts and animals and sometimes ghost animals. And it scares the beejesus out of me. A.J. claims he is trying to desensitize me to scary things, but really I just fall asleep with the light on now.
Thankful for: I am thankful for my husband who has dealt with me being positively crazy this week. I am thankful that I finally realized I was acting so crazy because I hadn’t worked out in awhile and now I’m thankful for the gym. I’m thankful for Ibuprofen PM which is the only way I’ve been getting to sleep at a decent hour. Oh, and I’m thankful for Blue Apron, which is this food service we’re trying out this week for free. So far, I’ve made one out of three meals, and it was pretty decent. Also I didn’t have to shop or meal plan or think, and that is worth a lot.
Reading: I still haven’t finished Julia Child’s book (affiliate link), but I recently purchased some books that I’m going to be giving as gifts soon, but I might read them first. Is that allowed? Is that one of those things I’m not supposed to admit?
Planning for: Kids’ Craft Day this Saturday, a First Communion celebration coming up, a Mardi Gras party I should probs RSVP for, like, today, and then Mother’s Day and Brunch. Am I glorifying busy? (That’s the worst!) I promise I am not trying to tell you how busy I am. I am just excited for all of the things coming up.
