A few months ago I saw another blogger write a post like this and I thought it was a really fun idea! I’m gonna share what’s going on with my life by telling you what I’m currently doing/feeling/thinking, etc.
So here goes. Currently I’m…
Watching: Poldark , Food Network Star, Rizzoli & Isles (the last season 🙁 ) & The Last Ship. If you enjoyed Downton Abbey, I really think you’d like Poldark as well – we were hooked after one episode. Sign up for Amazon Prime and watch it free !
Complaining about: The heat. And neck pain. I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulder for almost 3 weeks now. This happened a few years ago and I ended up having to see a chiropractor to get the pain to go away. I’m trying ibuprofen, heating pads and ice packs for now. And a good pillow. Hoping it’ll clear up on it’s own because I’m sick of it!
Reading: 4 Hour Work Week. Yes, really. I’ve been reading this book for weeks. Well, let me clarify. I read it for a few weeks, then quit reading it. And I’m sort of aggravated about it. I’m also reading God’s Story, Your Story in our Sunday school class and I’ve been reading a series of suspense novels by Lisa Gardner.
Thinking: That I hate summer time. It’s been 90°F+ every day this week with heat indexes in the 100’s. I can’t walk from my front door to my truck 10 feet away without sweating. I can’t be outside more than 5 minutes without getting sunburned. Why in the world do some people love summer? I don’t understand.
Looking forward to: Cooler weather. Obviously 😉 Is anybody seeing a trend here yet? I’m also looking forward to a mission trip later this summer.
Drinking: Snapple, Diet Dr. Pepper and Sweet Tea. Mostly ice cold Snapple Peach Tea and Mango Madness. YUM!
Daydreaming about: A vacation. In some place cooler. Not sure we’re going to have one this year, but I’d love to be holed up in a cabin with a good book looking out to the mountains! A year ago we were just getting home from our amazing vacation and gosh… yes, that’s where I’d like to be again!
Wanting: To feel like I’m caught up once and a while. With laundry, dishes, blogging. I’ll take one or all!
Feeling: Depressed? I’ve never been diagnosed with depression, so I don’t mean in the clinical sense, but I’ve just really been feeling down and unmotivated a lot lately. We had some big plans fall through recently, my blog has sort of hit a plateau, I turned 40 in May, and I feel like our summer is flying by without accomplishing much. 🙁
Confused about: How my house gets to be a mess in 5 minutes flat. We clean, we wash dishes and laundry, we sweep. we vacuum. And then I blink and the sink is full, the floor is covered in popcorn and we have no clean towels.
Patiently waiting for: Wanna guess? Fall. hahaha. No really – patiently waiting for… I’m not sure. We almost always have something on the horizon – a trip to take, an event to attend… something. But right now everything is sort of wide open. I love not being stressed with deadlines and a thousand things to do, but without a purpose or something to be working toward, I just feel sort of blah.
And that’s that… what I’m currently doing/feeling/thinking. How is your summer going? I’d love to hear!
