Why is it that the second week of a new schedule is always so much harder than the first? The first week back and working at a new earlier time went really well, this week however was so painful, every single morning felt like pulling teeth to get out of bed and by Friday I was just yawning the whole day. Hoping the third week is where things start to even back out? Anyways, on to what I’ve been up to lately.
I finished listening to the audio version of The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty this week and I loved it. It was the perfect combination of being light and fun, with some more serious subjects and life lessons, plus a mystery that kept me guessing.
I recently used up, and quickly repurchased, my favorite primer, the Maybelline Master Primer in Blur + Smooth. It’s light weight and leaves my skin feeling smooth and ready for makeup, which is exactly what I look for in a primer.
That a PCC opened up pretty close to my house. Between that and us finally cancelling Blue Apron, I’m really excited to see what comes out of our kitchen in the next few weeks. Something about finding and creating new recipes gets me really excited.
Still working on changing my name, and I imagine I will be for quite awhile. Even though I’ve gotten quite a bit of the big things done, this feels like one of those projects that is going to have quite a bit of a slow moving tail of little things to get done for awhile. I’m also working on getting used to writing and typing and saying my new name, I keep finding myself not thinking and writing my old last name, it’s kind of like how you write the the wrong date on things for the first few weeks/months of the year.
Getting used to life post honeymoon still, trying to sink into what it feels like to just be married and living our every day lives together. To be fair we did this before we were married because we’ve lived together for 4 years already, but the last couple of weeks before the wedding and then relaxing on the beaches of French Polynesia got me a little off kilter, so it’s fine to get back to normal life again.
Looking Forward To
The Olympics! I know they are still over two weeks away, but I can’t wait for them to get here. We’ve been watching the trials lately and it’s been getting me all sorts of excited for the actual games to get here. I get really into the Olympics every time they come around, there is just something about them that always gets me feeling all inspired.
