Note: I documented this journaling in June and I'm just now posting it....eek! Just proves to me that this year has been as busy as I thought it actually was. So without further adieu....
Really starting to feel exhausted. Trying to start cutting down the weekend planning more. I need a vacation. Seriously.
Today I am:
Reading: The same two books as the last TWO months now.... meaning I *really* haven't made any progress on this front.... sigh.... Making the Cut by Jillian Michaels and Everyone Worth Knowing by Lauren Weisberger
Listening to: Jason Mraz and my eclectic workout playlists mostly.
**Food = shaken iced passion tea lemonade at Starbucks, still stuck on the dry cranberry lime Gus sodas, salad (everyday now), Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monsters (my new favorite breakfast), Skinny Cow Skinny Dippers (YUM.)
**Crafts = Everything got put on hold for my sister's bridal shower. Made 42 cute little bird favors
**Workouts = Bike riding is the new favorite workout. Just went mountain biking for the first time with Brian last weekend. It was fun, but I have the scraped knee to prove that I'm new at it. Also loving the spin class I'm taking now on Thursday nights. Had to miss it tonight to catch up for this weekend. Still too much to do tonight!
**Time wasters = Still no time for them.... can barely catch sleep every night between working, working out and trying to keep up with everything going on right now!
**House = Made up my mind on a color scheme for the master bedroom last month, finally figured out the master bathroom. Decided to paint the master bath first, but also decided I want to tile the floor, replace the baseboards and replace the two light fixtures. Since it went from a paint job to a renovation of sorts, I'm pushing it all back to labor day weekend in September. Take a few days off if I can and try to knock it out. Need some time to convince Brian to do all those things, though I'm fairly confident I could figure them all out! :)
Thinking About: All the baby showers and babies in the next week - it's madness!! Two showers on Sunday and one baby that should be here any day. And those are just the family members and close friends.... seems like everyone is having a baby right now! Trying to get all three gifts finished and wrapped up for this weekend.
Planning: Trying to survive tonight at this point actually. Trying to finish up what I'm making for two of the three baby gifts for this weekend. Sewing machine is NOT cooperating. Took a break out of frustration. Now to do laundry in-between. yay. :)
Dreaming Of: A weekend of peace and quiet 4th of July.... well when the neighbors aren't shooting off illegal pyrotechnic displays anyway.
Enjoying: The weather, my new routine and workouts, time with Brian -- more now than a month ago thanks to yet another change in work schedules!
Vowing To: Finish this stuff for the weekend and get a handle on all the clutter next week. I'm soooo over all of it.
Working On: Still working on the same things. All have been put aside temporarily for parties this month demanding my attention.
Excited About: Alli's baby shower, seeing more good friends (Drea and Annie), more time with family -- all this weekend. More fun stuff coming up in July.
Favorite food I made in the last month: Tomatillo Shrimp Tacos (from the Jillian Michael's book above) -- quite yummy.
Getting out and about: It's all turning into a blur. My sister's bridal shower, lots of time spent getting ready for it, hanging out with Erin & Nancy at some point. Brian's 8-hour mountain biking race he won. Busy, busy, busy!
