So, for months (and months) I’ve been wanting to make this a weekly entry on this lonely blog of mine. I’ve been putting it off and putting it off. Well, the procrastination stops here! This is the first of the weekly Currently posts. I love reading other bloggers “Currently” posts and it always inspires me to want to do it. So here we go…
Thinking about: What I’m going to do while R is out of town. I was talking to a friend of mine last week, her BF is going out of town on business for an extended amount of time and I was telling her how great it really can be for her while he is away; there are so many great things about it, sure she’ll miss him and it sucks to be alone sometimes, but if you push those thoughts out of your head… its such a wonderful time to reflect on yourself and do everything just for you. All about me time.
I should listen to myself more… R is going out of town for a week (BIG DEAL, seriously) and I was having a panic attack. I really don’t like being alone, but I made it through 11 months without him, I think I can handle a WEEK. Anyway, all the great advice I was offering to my friend I should really make use of myself. I made a list at the beginning of the year of all the things I miss doing that have taken a backseat to my pouting and feeling sorry for myself, so starting tonight and going through the end of the week (and beyond of course), I’m going to tackle my long list of unfinished crafty projects, wear a face mask, whiten my teeth, get my nails done, clean the apartment thoroughly, do my laundry & put it all away, maybe even go through my shoes! So. much. to. do. !! And lots of *me* time to do it in! How exciting (using that term loosely, but one persons chore is another persons exciting adventure, right? No? Well, I am trying here!) So really… why was I ever disappointed R was going away?
Feeling: A little like this:
I just can’t seem to stop from drowning in my own self pity (wah wah I had a bad year, boo hoo – time to get over it already!). It’s really driving me (and I’m sure, everyone around me) crazy. So it’ll be good that R will be gone, I’m going to do a little reset. I didn’t do a very good job of it this morning, but I will work on it for the rest of the week and maybe he’ll come back to a more relaxed and calm girlfriend. Here is to hoping I’m more like this by the end of this week:
Watching: Game of Thrones – obsessed with Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons and Robb Stark isn’t hard on the eyes either, its an incredible show. New Girl. The Mindy Project. Veep. Mad men. Dexter (season 5). Mostly those, I believe. I love TV, I have no shame. So I’m looking forward to watching Friends reruns, dumb sitcoms, Real Housewives of OC (SO GOOD) & dramas (mostly catching up on Mad Men) that R doesn’t watch this week. Yay!
Reading: I *am* going to read the next book that my book club (that I joined like 2 years ago) chooses this time. So I will find out in a few days what I’ll be reading. As of right now, I have no current reads. Maybe I should finish up The Paris Wife ( LOVE it so far) or Committed. Both are fantastic, yet I haven’t picked them up in months. Maybe that’s something I should do before bed all this week. Add that to the list!
Looking forward to: My new job! Well, I haven’t officially received an offer yet, but I interviewed & received a possible offer (read: a curious email that implied a job offer is on its way, maybe/possibly/hopefully). I am thinking very positive thoughts, throwing out positive vibes, crossing my fingers and hoping very strongly that this week I receive the letter.
Making me happy: Finally finishing this post. (!!!) Like I said, I’ve been wanting to do one of these updates for many many months and I just never had enough to say. Also making me happy: me time, crafting, a clean apartment, possible (very possible) new job and everything that comes with it, sunshine and my cat.
