I guess this month is almost over.
I honestly have no idea how that happened; I feel like it went by so quickly.
Yesterday was not my favorite day — it began with a terribly rocky morning with the kids and was followed by a clinical day in which nothing felt easy (though in retrospect it was fine!). BUT then we got some positive house news, and bedtime went reasonably well, including a good talk with the child that had made the morning miserable, and I spent some time journaling in bed about how we can hopefully improve our mornings in the future.
And today I feel better! Even though it’s not a new month yet 🙂
Currently thinking about: 2022 planning systems. Hanukkah gifts (NEED TO GET ON THIS for nieces/nephews – the only thing I have identified is the Amanda Rach Lee doodle planner for my 12 year old niece — she currently uses and likes one I gave her from 2021!). Christmas gifts for friends (thinking maybe cozy candles this year?!). Getting a mortgage.
Currently reading: Close to the end of On Purpose, and I ordered 4000 Weeks as my next non-fic read. BUT I’m between novels! I’m either going to pick Great Circle back up, dive into The Lincoln Highway, or wait until one of these arrives:
Currently watching: The Babysitters Club Season 2! Annabel and I binged 3 episodes in a row last weekend. I had to pause explain about my job when they featured Stacey’s pediatric endocrinologist. (“You know that’s part of my job, right!?”). Seriously though . . . how many shows feature a peds endo?!
Currently experiencing: Caroline Girvan EPIC I. I have completed 2 weeks plus one workout! Every single time I survive one of these, it feels like an accomplishment. However, I am not getting in 5/week because I am mixing in running. And sometimes rest days (yesterday – just had to).
Currently wondering: How Halloween is going to work since it’s on a Sunday. I suspect we will trick or treat from like ~6:00 – 8:00pm and then cut it off? Monday Nov 1 is going to be rough!
