So, I really didn't mean to stop writing for a month and a half. I'm sorry about that, truly. A lot has happened in that time. Instead of doing a narrative that would take forever to read, I'm going to do brief points. Enjoy!
Work has been very uninspiring recently, as is usual for summer. However, there is a website project that has become so ridiculously tedious. Seriously, I have to make minute changes every 2-3 days.
I'm 6 books ahead of schedule on my reading challenge. This year seems to be the year of the series. I'm trying to get my reading done because I am about to work on a lot of craft projects for the holidays and will not have a lot of time to read.
I took on a second part-time job that I am really enjoying so far. The people are cool and the place is super cool. I'm so glad it's working out.
My sister's wedding is in 29 days. Crazy! I can't believe it's almost time already. My glue gun has gotten a lot of use lately. You should see some Craft Project posts soon.
I signed up for my first 5K this weekend. I will be walking it though because I'm not quite able to run comfortably yet. Here's why:
The day before my birthday, I had breast reduction surgery! Having this done was something I had been thinking about for over 10 years. It's because of my sister's wedding that I finally made the decision. I'm sure I will write about it some more. It's a 6 week healing process and I am at 5 weeks today!
Halloween is approaching and I have already started looking for new decoration ideas for my front door. :)
I've also purchased my first Christmas present.
My apartment hasn't been cleaned in over 8 weeks. I'm embarrassed to share that, but it needs to be said. It's not in hazardous shape, but it's dirty in my mind. Thankfully, a super sweet gal I know is coming to clean for me while I work on other important projects that seem to be piling up.
This summer, I experienced audiobooks. I never thought I would like them, but they've been great to listen to while I'm driving and walking my dog.
The ideas are coming to me for my Harry Potter Christmas tree. I think I will end up having two trees in my living room this year because Hobby Lobby has some awesome ornaments that would look spectacular on my nature theme tree. :)
The students are back on campus. Traffic has definitely picked up and now I really have to time my departure in the morning to avoid traffic and stop lights.
Speaking of which, I have been able to officially change my work hours so I get off at 4:30 pm instead of 5. This change has been amazing!
I've discovered my new favorite pen. If you've been around a while, you know I have an obsession with pens, among other office supplies. My favorite thing about these is how quickly they dry, so I don't get left with smudges.
I got tickets to the symphony next month and I am beyond excited!!!
We will pick back up to normally scheduled posting starting Monday. Thanks for sticking 'round!
