Currently in July
Greetings one and all! I am just off of a lovely four day weekend and am trying to get back into the swing of things in the work week. It does not help that I have the early shift at work today, but the good news is that Nate’s work trip was postponed a week, so I’m not living the single mom life quite yet! Anyway, since it’s also already July (what???) it’s also time for Currently with Anne of In Residence and her guest host Stephanie from Wife, Mommy, Me. So, here’s a look at some current happenings as we head into this second month of summer.
Currently I Am
Documenting – Summer Fun! I took Ollie on a fun Ollie/Mommy date day on Monday since I had the day off and Nate did not. I took pictures every place we went. It’s important to me to make lots of fun memories for him and to be able to have the pictures to look back on.
Accomplishing – We are finally just about done cleaning out our laundry room. I took this on as a task early this year and finished it this week with arranging to have a number of non-working small appliances picked up for recycling. My goal this year is to reduce our clutter as much as possible and this was a huge step in that direction!
Enjoying – The second season of Master of None on Netflix. I know a lot of people felt it fizzled after the first couple of episodes, but I’ve actually really been enjoying it. It might help that we’re taking our time binging it instead of going through super fast. I think I’d be a little fatigued if I watched it all super close together.
Reading – Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple. After seeing it on both Shea and Cara’s book review lists I decided I needed to give it a go. Luckily my library had a copy of it available. It’s pretty good so far.
Spending – I’m working on not spending money since I just bought that huge thrift haul and I want to start planning for some upcoming trips, so instead of spending money, I am spending TIME this month. Time with family and time with friends. Worth every penny in my opinion!
And that’s it! Some people are declaring summer half over with the July 4th holiday already passed, but I refuse to look at it that way. We have all of July and August to go and so much summer fun to have yet! The weather seems to finally have figured out what the calendar says too, it’s steamy out there!
