Inspiration, Musings, & Projects10:37 AM
Monday, Monday, Monday, what's wrong with you? Actually, I look forward to Mondays. I like the structure, and organization after a crazy, jam-packed weekend. I will just chalk it up to getting older and all of that nonsense.
Anyway, how about a little life update?
Planning: I am finding that I am less of a basket case if I plan most things ahead of time. It sounds very boring, but it is the only way to prevent myself from becoming overwhelmed. I usually take time Sunday night/Monday morning to plan out my week: what day to clean what room, when I am going to the grocery store, etc. I also am getting better at planning out friend-time, even when those plans fall-through. We had originally decided on heading downtown to ice-skate and grab an earlier dinner on Saturday, but after someone's car broke down, our plans had altered. We still ended up having a good time out with friends, and Kyle and I even had some time together on Sunday. I didn't get everything done that I wanted to do over the weekend, but this weekend we are planning on less craziness, and more chores so hopefully it will even out in the end.
Health: I am still doing Insanity, and although it is still kicking my ass, I love it. I have been eating a lot better the past two weeks (December was full of holiday goodness), and I have started to notice more physical changes in my appearance, even if they are very small. I hadn't had a haircut since July (other than having Kyle cut the back of it over the sink), so I finally went in and had a proper trim. Tip: If you are growing your hair out, get regular trims. Your awkward, in-between hair does not have to be as fugly as mine was.
I am also in the process of weeding out hair and makeup products that are not helpful to myself. Ex: I need products for fine hair, makeup for my oily skin, etc. Most people have the common sense to figure this out when they are teenagers, but nope, not me!
Projects: I have decided to not start any new projects until I have finished the ones I have started. I am itching to work on our office, it needs some major re-organizing, as well as decorating, but I have a bathroom that needs spackling and I already have the supplies to do that. My sanity and my wallet will thank me for this later.
Family time: I already mentioned that I have been trying to spend more time alone with Kyle, but it is really exciting to me. This mostly resulted from Kyle having a break from school, but we are also making it more of a priority. Most of the time we just go out for dinner/get take-out and watch movies/TV with each other, which is really perfection for us, but we have been trying to change it up. More walks with Louie, leaving the house to see movies, and last night we went and saw a friend perform at a local tea house. Even browsing the clearance racks at Target was fun for us this weekend, because we never go to the store together anymore. Really lame? Of course, but on both accounts. But extra time with these two (and our other furry bastards), is never a bad thing.
