getting | back on track and into a rhythm of sorts after spending a week at the lake.

adjusting | to an improvised stand-up desk. It’s mostly awesome but sometimes my feet hurt.

laughing, drinking, relaxing, eating | with family. always good.

watching | Onyx play with my aunt and uncle’s dog, chase squirrels, and warily accept treats from various family members. And getting in the water with minimal hesitation!

drinking | tea and water to detox from a week of wine, beer, more wine, cookies, brownies, frozen yogurt, and burgers. So worth it.

wondering | what on earth I want to do with this blog. Changes are coming, I’m just not sure what they are…yet.

adding | core work into my daily workouts. Again.

budgeting | with Husband. Actually, last night he showed me all the work he did revising and planning our budget while I was gone and I was a little blown away. I was all “I was thinking about how we can adjust our budget while I was driving home” and he goes “Let me show you this” and I said “Wow, thanks for doing all this work” and then we talked a little about how we’ll put it into practice and stay on top of it. Then we complained about how adulting is hard and I got sad that we were out of ice cream.

listening | to podcasts while walking Onyx. Despite literally everyone in the world listening to This American Life and knowing I would love it, I’ve resisted subscribing or downloading any because they have so freaking many episodes where do I start what if I miss a good one how will I get caught up or stay caught up and finally I was just like “Stop being stupid. Just download the two or three most recent episodes and go from there.” And I did. Newer shows, like The Mystery Show or Invisibilia, though, I’m starting from Episode 1 and sloooowly getting caught up.

  • YOu have done so much. I love it! I like how you have different words than normal for the currently series.

    • Haha, thanks! Awhile ago I found this hugely long list of verbs that I saved and now I try to pick a few different ones every month.

      • I might have to search around and do that too. I love doing these b/c I feel so scattered sometimes for a whole post.

  • Sounds like you (and Onyx) had a great trip to the lake! The podcast while walking the dog sounds like a great idea! I had not thought about it, but using it a bit as double duty.

    • I have listened to SO MANY PODCASTS this week because of that. It’s great. 🙂
