I honestly can't believe its already the last Wednesday of the month
... but its the perfect time to catch up on life in What's Up Wednesday!!!
What we're eating this week
y'all... I totally can't stop making these banana cookies.
& I'm so excited I have a big batch of bananas that the heat in the house has made them ripen faster than usual. We know what that means.
What I'm reminiscing about
Remembering what it was like to be able to do life without glasses.
Mercy - how my eyes changed.
They say that when you hit 40, they change - they ain't lying.
I had perfect vision until I hit 40 & BAM! Who needs to see anymore?
I now have to live life with reading glasses in every room, in my car, on my desk, & usually on my head or I panic.
What I'm loving
I want to stop every day for one... multiple times a day
What we've been up to
Cleaning... getting rid of ALL THE STUFF!
Ricky even went out & bought 2 new garbage cans & for the past 3 weeks,
we've sat out 5 garbage cans ever week.
Do the math right there. Or just sum it up by knowing LOADS have been taken out of our house.
So much to get rid of!
What I'm dreading
Being sore from this race on Saturday.
No matter how well trained I am, my muscles will get so tight after 13.1 miles
Especially my hips & inner thighs.
I've already got yoga videos all ready for the days following.
What I'm working on
Getting this dang Etsy store up & running.
I've got pictures taken.. its just uploading them.
I think what's putting me on hold is to get a plan on pricing.
I dont want to be crazy high, but want to definitely earn back what I've put into a project with the cost of yarn & the time invested in working on something.
I'm trying to look around at other knitted things & getting ideas.
My goal is to have it up & running by the end of May.
What I'm excited about
We're back in Middle School Ministry & loving it.
Loving meeting a new group of kids...
Excited meeting other adults who have a heart for middle school kids
I'm just excited about being involved in church again.
What I'm watching/reading
After a wait, I finally got the library loan of After You.
I wasn't sure I wanted to read it because I didn't want to ruin Me After You & I heard a lot of not great reviews about the follow up. But I've learned that I'm totally an easy-reader & some people think too hard about reviews so I'm jumping into Louisa's life again
... & about 30% in, so far, I'm not minding the story.
What I'm listening to
I love me some podcasts & just finished listening to Heather interview RuPaul.
You never know what I'm going to listen to next on my podcast roll.
I have the strangest mix of podcasts that are on my list every day.
What I'm wearing
I bought a few pairs of jeggings at Sam's Club...
because everyone buys their clothes at Sam's club, right?
... & I honestly put them in my drawer & never wore them. For years.
& pulled them out & tried them on since I've lost some weight.
& mercy... is there anything more comfortable?
I think I wear them every day & want like 15 more pairs.
Or at least 7 more pair.
One for every day of the week.
What I'm doing this weekend
oh, just going for a little stroll
What I'm looking forward to next month
Starting a new workout program.
I'm hoping by the end of 60 days, I'm going to be ready for summer clothing.
Get rid of everything that jiggles.
What else is new
So yeah - I'm the one that has been traveling through the road to hell that leads to dentists month after month... & then guess what happened Monday night?
Ricky is chewing his finger nails & then CRACK... his tooth breaks.
Seriously? What is happening to our teeth right now?
I'm going all conspiracy theory & feeling like something is in our water at home now.
2016 - the year we worked just to pay dental bills.
Don't forget tomorrow is THANKFUL THURSDAY
... if you want to join in with me, I'd love you to link up with me
& tell me what you're Thankful for this week. See ya tomorrow!
