I just posted last week about a book I read recently and really loved – A Series of Catastrophes & Miracles by Mary Elizabeth Williams. Such a good read in my opinion, and it really got me thinking! On a more light hearted note, I’m now reading The Joy of Leaving Your Sh*t All Over the Place by Jennifer McCartney. It’s just a short but funny read that challenges everything about the clutter free/Kon Mari life. As long as colorful language doesn’t offend you, then it’s one I would recommend if you need a good laugh and an excuse to ignore all household chores. 🙂
To get my life together in terms of health/fitness. I want to eat healthier, and have been really intrigued by zoodles and debating trying to convince my husband that we need a spiralizer. I noticed the other day that our grocery store now sells squash or sweet potatoes already spiralized so I’m using that as a tester for a week of two to make sure I’ll actually eat the stuff before adding another gadget to our kitchen cabinets. So far I’ve just eaten them with pasta sauce for a few lunches at work, but think I’ll have to get a little more creative to avoid getting bored with it.
After an appointment with the allergist today confirmed a peanut and cow’s milk allergy for our son, I’m hoping that he’ll outgrow both at some point!
Our office area. It’s just a small nook upstairs but earlier this summer I reorganized it and created a space for Jacob too. Now I just have to get myself to use it more. It feels good to finally have some things hanging on the wall in there too after 6 years of living here!
The never ending nature of it has been a recent source of stress, but a few of the big ones hanging over my head are another closet clean out for me, going through all of Jacob’s old clothes to get rid of ones we don’t want to keep and better organize the ones we do (I just threw everything in boxes as he outgrew them), and to put a little more effort into our landscaping. None of these things sound enjoyable. 😦
