Monday Musings

Here we are at the beginning of a new week. Here is what is on my mind today.

1) We have started our new remote work schedule today. Now I am working from home on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. I am so so so happy!

2) Where the heck is spring? It has been rainy, icy, windy and cold. The forecast is showing that it should be in the 50s and 60s by the end of the week. I hope this holds true.

3) As much as I hated my last job I miss certain things about that place. Right now it is the health insurance we had. I have already paid more out of pocket than I did for my entire pregnancy and delivery with little man. I guess now I know one reason why they filed for bankruptcy.

Here are some pictures from the week.

Little man and daddy got ice cream but didn't bring me any :(

Monday Musings

Another week is upon us. Here is what is on my mind this week.

1) Little man has his consult to see if his tonsils need to be removed. He is really freaking out about this and I ope they can schedule to surgery quickly if he needs to have it.

2) I allowed myself to rest and not feel bad about it this weekend and I really needed it. I need to do this more often.

3) With the new addition coming along with our move this summer I have really been thinking about our finances. I know that we waste a lot of money on stupid things - we don't spend money on expensive things but nickel and dime ourselves to death. Some serious changes are going to be taking place around here.

4) I am really ready for some spring temps to come our way. it has been in the 20s and 30s for way to long now. it is supposed to be in the high 60s on Thursday and Friday but we also have rain in the forecast. I guess beggars can't be choosers so I will take the rain if necessary.

Here are some pictures from the week.

I enjoyed this book but exhaustion and brain fog made for slow reading

Three on Thursday

The week is almost over and here is what I am thankful for this week.

1) Having Monday and Tuesday off from work since little man is on Spring Break

2) My family helping us out by watching Clark for us the rest of the week

3) A nice Easter. It was nice to finally have a holiday where I let things go and did not stress about getting there on time or the family drama that one person always like to bring to our gatherings.

Books Read: March 2018

Well I am falling behind on my 52 in 52 challenge. With exhaustion and brain fog setting in it is taking me much longer to read. Sometimes I have to read the same page 2 or 3 times to remember what happened. In March I read the following 3 books.

1) Bootstrapper: From Broke to Badass on a Northern Michigan Farm by Mardi Jo Link - I enjoyed this book but there were a lot of places where the author comes across as majorly whiny, It was an interesting insight into a how a small family farm is run which is not something we think of these days.

2) The Good Goodbye by Carla Buckley - while I liked this book due to the previously mentioned brain fog I had a hard time with the back and forth nature of the story. It seemed to me that the big twist at the end - which was not really that difficult to figure out - really did not add anything to the story and was put in to add some more drama which I don't think the book needed.

3) The Urban Monk: Eastern Wisdom and Modern Hacks to Stop Time and Find Success, Happiness and Peace by Pedram Shojai - while I did agree with many of the authors points it seemed to me that the book was being used more as a way to sell you things. I ended up skimming a lot of the "advice".
