Happy 2015! Hard to believe it is a new year already -- seems like not too long ago we were ringing in 2014! :) As usual with the start of a new month comes a new currently -- head on over to Farley's blog and link up!
Listening: My office is next to our TV room and The Husband is watching Eastbound & Down on Amazon Prime. I despise this show -- it's vulgar and has no purpose aside from being obnoxious. I try to hide whenever it is on.
Loving: This has been such a great break. Two entire weeks off from everything -- grad school and work. It has been lovely. I haven't done a single thing school related and it has been wonderful. I read some books FOR PLEASURE (gasp!) and did a lot of relaxing and playing with my kids. It was much needed. I will miss the freedom to just be.
Thinking: I really need to get my grading done tomorrow as I am plumb out of time! I made myself a promise that I wouldn't work on the huge pile of grading until after my anniversary (which was Sunday)...and I kept it. I haven't been able to force myself to get to it since though, although I did pull some of it out of the bag and put it on my table...does that count?? :) I have to do it tomorrow because grad school starts up again Sunday and Saturday we're planning to frolic as a family before we all go back to our crazy schedules.
Wanting: The Oldest is at work, covering an on call shift....which means I have no idea when she's going to get done. I have to pick her up as she doesn't have her license (despite being 19)....I want her to hurry up and get done so I can veg in front of the TV in my PJs! I do not watch a lot of TV but The Husband has me hooked on Sons of Anarchy which we are watching on Demand on Netflix. I have to watch as much as I can before my free time disappears with school and work on Sunday/Monday.
Needing: I tend to hurt myself without even meaning too. It isn't that I'm accident prone or anything as I'm not randomly bumping into walls....just if there is a way to get hurt, I probably will. (For example, I twisted my elbow carrying in groceries...yeah, I'm special I guess lol) Somehow in the night I pulled a muscle in my back. It only hurts if I move lol Definitely going to need a massage to get those kinks out!
Yes/Maybe/I Wish: Yes, I am definitely traveling overseas in 2015. It will be my 3rd time flying and my first time going overseas. I'm excited but scared of the loooong flights. Maybe I can finally find a balance between my work life, my grad school life and my personal life so that I can finally get back to making my fitness goals a priority. I need to lose weight but it's SO much easier to eat crappy and not exercise -- I gotta change that. I wish that I could find some peace with work. I love my job, my school and my students but I am restless. I may need to do some soul searching to determine if I need to change schools/grades or what. I'm just not feeling satisfied with my current position and I can't put my finger on why.
