It’s our favorite month of the year that kicks off our favorite season of the year. The holidays!
WEATHER: Beautiful. 60’s at night. Highs of 80’s in the day. I was talking with some friends the other night at happy hour and someone asked why it can’t be this nice year round and I reminded them because then we’d be in California. Paying California taxes. So, we gotta take our wins where we get them. :)
LOVING: Spending lots of time with my parents. I don’t get sick of them. Is that weird?
CONSUMING: Less fast food. I’m trying to be better. Not perfect, but better. And we’ve been eating healthier dinners. And not eating out.
HEARING: Finn now mimicking all kinds of noises everyday. His dog “bark” is especially funny.
WEARING: Socks to keep my feet warm most nights. Oh and I broke out a Halloween shirt tonight.
READING: What’s that? I pin stuff on Pinterest, does that count? Ain’t nobody got time for reading in this house. :*(
FEELING: Tired from long hours at work and in pain from a kidney infection.
LAUGHING: At Finn every second I am with him. Tonight it was when he brought me his too-small Crocs and insisted that I put them on him so he could walk around then house with them on.
WATCHING: I started watching Fringe and I’m 5 episodes in and really enjoying it. Can’t wait to get our hands on my MIL’s DVR so we can watch the last season of Breaking Bad!
THINKING: Just thinking. Always. My husband asks, “do you ever stop thinking?”. No. I’m always wondering, “what is next?” and trying to check things off my list.
STRESSING: About getting everything finished that we need to in order to list our house on the market. I’ll be SO glad when that is done.
WANTING: To get better and for this kidney infection to go away and not cause me anymore trouble or money. I’ve already been to my doctor, urgent care, and the emergency room. I’ve had 2 urinalysis, bloodwork, and a CT scan. Ugh.
NEEDING: Someone to come pull the weeds in our backyard. And quick! ;)
WISHING: For my mom to be on the mend as well and to start feeling more herself and happier. I know Finn is hard work, but I also know he can bring a lot of joy. I hope he can start doing that for her soon. Gosh I wish we weren’t in such a pickle!
HOPING: We can sell our house pretty quick and be done with it and that it’s not a long drawn out process.
ENJOYING: Spending both nights at my parents’ this weekend. And one of them with Finn where he actually slept in my bed for half the night. It felt like a movie where the kid wakes up in the middle of the night and has to sleep with the parents. It was kinda nice, but I know not to let him get in that habit. But his warmth on my chest was very comforting for that night. <3
