Reading: Remember how excited I was about finally getting my library card? Go ahead and ask me about what I’ve read this month: a whole bunch of nothing. I started back to work in the final week of October, and between that and some freelance work, I haven’t had the time to get any personal reading done.
Listening: While I was unable to do any reading, I was able to listen to two audiobooks during my work commute. I finished House Rules by Jodi Picoult and The Fault In Our Stars by John Greene.
Excited: to see my good friend who came up from Virginia for a quick visit.
Watching: Narcos, Walking Dead
Wearing: I’m not really enjoying my clothing choices. I feel uncomfortable in things that feel too small (which is a lot of my closet), but I also don’t feel any stress to lose any more weight at this time. I’m hoping that bringing down my winter clothing will offer me some more selection. We’ll see.
Wishing: that the baby learns (quickly) how to calm herself and fall asleep on her own. This is our newest baby struggle. It’s always something. I hate hearing the baby cry, but I also want her to learn how to sleep without assistance. Wish me luck and send positive thoughts my way.
Drinking: water or coffee, but much more water than coffee.
Loving: that it is almost time for our Elf on the Shelf to return for the holidays. I love Logan!
Loathing: Death and the despair someone must feel when they commit suicide. We’re only 1/2 way into the month, and I’ve had to deal with some pretty crazy shit. A good friend – someone I really cared about – committed suicide last week. I’m not really ready to write about it, because I don’t even quite know how I feel about it right now. All I can say is that it’s horrible and so very sad.
Admiring: people who band together to help their loved ones in a time of need. In the past week, I’ve watched as people I know or do not know have been there for my friend in her time of need.
Are you enjoying your November so far? Hold your loved ones close and enjoy your Thanksgiving.
