i don’t know how people do it all.
somedays are better than others.
but lately…we are behind on everything.
the dishes. the laundry. new year cards. everything in-between.
good things are going on. lots of good things with a side of crazy.
but then there is no energy left for anything else.
i am working on deep breaths and being okay with it.
in the last little bit…around here…
i have been requesting wine and popcorn for dinner
admiring the sky
can’t stop staring at our ring…will that ever go away?
taking long walks
appreciating our friends and family
still obsessing over our fitbits (maybe me more than erik)
feeling overwhelmed and inspired
waiting, wishing, and hoping to find out where we go next
making lists and lists of books, movies, trips, everything
trying to stop making lists…to live a simpler life
found blackfish and silver linings playbook so interesting
loving erik so much, even in his grumpy moments of dissertation writing
loved finishing our periodic table puzzle
surprised by how much i am enjoying listening to john mayer’s pandora station
wanting to read Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill
wishing my mom a happy 60th birthday tomorrow
back i go to writing new year cards…so they don’t become valentine’s day cards
