I am using August as a time to do some reevaluating. Although technically summer, August is traditionally a transition month as summer schedules change, kids return to school and fall begins to show signs. (Who wants to guess when pumpkin spice latte shows up?) Before you return to a hectic schedule, take some time to review what is going on in your life and take note of what you don’t want to let go. Additionally, take note of what you would like to adjust.
Here’s what is going on in my world currently…..
READING The Good Girl by Mary Kuibca. This is another suspense novel written from multiple perspectives of the main characters. This was an impulse buy at Target as I truly wanted to sneak in another “for enjoyment” book before fall classes start. I am almost halfway through and must say it is truly a good book. I recently provided my thoughts on The Girl On The Train and I already like this book better.
LISTENING and loving my free trial of Apple Music. I love the playlists that have been put together and seriously think I will keep it after the trial is over.
OBSESSING over the FitBit charge I purchased. I have become somewhat obsessed with getting my steps in (not a bad thing). I love that I am going out of my way to go to a bathroom, parking farther from the store and overall becoming aware of my movement. I’m also certain that not all of my stairs are being counted…. (
WATCHING Television is not something I watch a lot of; however I have made it a weekly ritual to watch Beach Flip each Sunday night on HGTV. I don’t have a certain team I want to win, but there are two friends that simply get on my nerves. Isn’t that what reality tv is supposed to do?
FEELING A mixture of emotions in all areas of my life right now. My neighbors and I are struggling with the recent events with our neighbor. I also hate that facts become distorted after a time like this and the truth is none of us will know the truth.
THINKING about how I am going to manage my schedule and time this fall. Two part time jobs, providing supervision, trainings, writing a blog and trying to have a life. Sadly, there are times the thought of it all paralyzes me and as a result I achieve little for the day.
PLANNING to make some changes on this site, organize my office and be as prepared as possible for the fall class I am teaching.
JOINING a fantasy football league for the first time. We will see how this works out! Evidently, I have some spare time on my hands!
MISSING the beach. In lieu of a big vacation this year, we went all out and purchased a tempur-pedic mattress. I’m not regretting our decision but I’m also missing the waves and sand. Next year is certainly a beach year.
WEARING Essie Petal Pusher nail polish on my fingernails. I love all Essie polish and this one provides color but is still neutral.
LOOKING FORWARD TO my monthly happy hour date with a dear friend and the Girls Weekend Trip we have scheduled in September. Lexington also has something going on each weekend in August and it’s nice to have so many options of things to do.
GRATEFUL for this life I have. A supportive husband, good friends, good health and opportunities.
