Monday Musings

Once again a new week is upon us and we are already half way through October. Here is what is on my mind today.

1) I have been in a major funk for the last two weeks. I am not sure what is going on but I am ready for it to be over already.

2) My ex-sister-in-law and niece were in town this past week from Arizona and we were able to go out to brunch with them on Saturday.

3) Little man wants to be an astronaut for Halloween. The costume he wore 3 years ago still fits which was a pleasant surprise.

4) Little man may have conned us into adding a new member to our family. 

Here are the pictures from the past few weeks.

Three on Thursday

Here is what I am grateful for this week.

1) That little man seems to be in the groove of having to do homework every night. After the crying fits the first two weeks of school this is a welcome change.

2) That I have woken up early everyday this week and worked out.

3) That fall temperatures have finally arrived.

Books Read: September 2017

I am falling off a bit and am now slightly behind on my 52 in 52 challenge. I think I should still be ok I just need to keep reading. Little man is required to read for 20 minutes a night and I have been reading with him so that should help a bit. In September I read the following 3 books.

1) Grit by Angela Duckworth – an interesting look into how some people can preserver through almost anything while others will crumble at the first sign of hardship. She also gives some good examples of what grit is and how to increase yours.

2) Belleweather Rhapsody by Kate Racculia – I am not sure how I feel about this book. It was an interesting premise and I thought it would be more of a thriller but it fell a bit short. 

3) The Racketeer by John Grisham – this book kept me guessing for about ¾ of the way through which is unusual. I would love to see this one made into a movie.

Monday Musings

I cannot believe that October is here already. Here is what is on my mind today.

1) I booked a birthday party for little man to have with his friends. My anxiety level is so high because I am scared that no one will come and he will be crushed.

2) After a week plus of 90 degree temps we are finally back to fall temps which makes me happy.

3) The fall shows have started and I am still watching episodes for some shows from last season. I am close to just starting over fresh but I am having a hard time pulling the trigger.

4) I broke down and ordered some new dress clothes. I am hoping to lose weight but I could not wait any longer.

Here are the pictures for the past couple of weeks.
