Happy Wednesday! We are halfway through the week which means we are halfway to the weekend! Each day I wake up and tell myself that it is one day closer to Friday. I feel like that is the only way I am able to get up these past couple days.
…And I don’t feel this way because of having to work all week. No way, I love my job and I love going to work! So that’s not it at all. I just miss my husband and I can’t wait for Friday! If you haven’t been reading, here’s a quick update: he is pursuing a new career and it’s VERY exciting however definitely is a change for us in the next several months. I really appreciate you letting me keep this private because I cannot discuss it any further publicly. Just know that this time is kind of tough for me because I was so used to having him here with me a lot in the past month.
Anyways, I thought it would be fun to give you a little catch up on what’s been going on over here today, but instead of calling it a catch up, I figured I would call this one “what I’ve been up to Wednesday” doesn’t that have a good ring to it?! Lol.
So, here we go!
What I’ve Been Up To Wednesday 1/8/20
Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday! We did celebrate him this past weekend during our “surprise” I wrote about on Monday. But this guy totally deserves to be celebrated every day because he is just the best. And yes, I am a total Daddy’s girl. No shame. Happy birthday Dad! My parent’s actually stopped over last night which was really nice because I didn’t think I would have been able to wish him a happy birthday (on his actual birthday) in person but I did!
I started working more hours yesterday and I really enjoyed having to stay later, however the lack of sleep I have been getting definitely has started creeping up on me slowly. I totally needed more coffee when I got out, haha. Soon I will be starting the longer shifts (like a ‘normal’ school day, 8-3) every day and I am really happy that I am able to do that. I must say that it gets kind of lonely when I get out at 12:30 (and yes even when I get out at 3), so it is nice to have those couple hours added on that I get to stay there. For this week and next week I’ll be doing the “longer” shifts Tuesday and Wednesday until the following week.
I’ve been staying busy every day; working out, hanging out with my nephews, going over my parent’s house, running errands, journaling, watching Disney +, shopping, doing laundry, and of course (trying) to blog. I say trying because I tried to come on here to write up a post that would be ready for Tuesday morning but I just couldn’t. I’m happy to be writing for today though. I do have a journal that I started writing in on Monday that I write straight from my heart. Maybe one day I’ll share those journal entries, but for now I’m keeping those for myself for months to come.
I’m so grateful that my family is close by and I am able to spend a lot of time with them, which is exactly what I have been doing; going over to my parent’s house and my sister’s house. I know I am usually with them a lot anyways, but I really am grateful that I live within 5-10 minutes from them!
This week is apparently the week of teeth: I had a dentist appointment on Monday afternoon and I have an orthodontist appointment on Thursday afternoon. Lol. You know I hate the dentist, but I have to be an adult and do all of the fun adult things like suck it up and go to the dentist, or even worse when I had to suck it up and get bloodwork done….AH! The horror! I did it and I survived! So if I can do that I most certainly can go to the dentist for a cleaning, haha!
Disney+ has been a REAL BIG God send this week (yes I know we are only on Wednesday, don’t judge me…it’s been a long week). I’ve needed all of the comfort movies and tv shows these past couple of days. Monday I watched The Santa Clause (my fav. Duh.) and some Lizzie McGuire (because helloooo Lizzie McGuire?! The best), and last night I decided on Mary Poppins and Inside Out. Really helped make me feel less anxious and just all around feeling good!
Along with that, taking obé classes like usual every day has truly helped me push through the anxious feelings and whatever else I’ve been feeling. The trainers always manage to help me put a smile on my face and feel proud of myself for pushing through a workout and even pushing through the tears and getting a sweat on. Nothing says you got this like proving to yourself that you can do a hard workout, right?
And of course, leaning on the Lord and getting my strength from Him is really what gets me through the days. There’s no better way to turn around any anxious feelings than to read the word, talk to Him, and to be in His presence.
That’s all I’ve got for now, friends! Hope you have a wonderful day! XOXO!
