Hey Friends! Welcome to "Currently - March 2017" aka "The Busy Season Edition." Most of my life revolves around work work work from mid-January to mid-April. I know I've been complaining about my busy work schedule lately but it is really hard to focus on anything else. It's not so much the extra hours as the stress of the deadline.
I kinda want to pick up this t-shirt to Jonathan:
Here's what's been going on lately otherwise:
Listening To: I've been enjoying the "Happy Folk" playlist from Spotify.
Watching: Not much. My free time priorities are 1) exercise, and 2) reading. Sometimes I'll watch a random freebie movie from Amazon Prime when I'm feeling really burnt out... Mostly recently: The Cutting Edge - A classic! I'd really like to see the new Beauty and the Beast though.
Reading: I picked up a few library holds but I'm not sure I'm going to get to them all before they're due back in two weeks. I started with My (Not So) Perfect Life. I'm also making slow progress through The Danish Way of Parenting.
Trying: To focus on the kids when I'm with the kids rather than thinking about all the work I need to do after they go to bed.
Craving: A night off.
Wearing: My most comforting item of clothing = An old North Face hooded sweatshirt. What I wish I was wearing? All the bright new summertime clothes I have saved in my Boden online shopping cart... Pretty sure I'm not going to make it the whole six months of my no-shopping ban.
Loving: Nice weather! Have I been this happy in the past when it finally starts to feel like spring? I don't remember. But this year I am thrilled to be spending more time outside. I foresee many trips to the playground this summer.
Not Loving: Busy season.
Praying: To not lose sight of my bigger priorities amidst the hustle bustle of this stressful time.
Looking Forward To: The end of busy season.
Eating: I am deeply obsessed with buttered toast. I know my go-to breakfast lately of a vanilla latte and buttered toast isn't the healthiest... But it's so good! Lately we've been picking up a couple loaves of fresh bread from a local bakery on Sunday - The cheddar jalapeno is amazing.
Planning: Summertime fun!
What are you up to lately?
