Enjoying… the gorgeous, cool temperatures we had much of the month. Highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s, in August ,in Missouri??? Yes, please and thank you!
Planning…to go back to work part time in early September. I love my job, so I am happy to go back, but the logistics of getting myself ready for work and getting two kids to daycare & preschool is kind of stressing me out. But I am very thankful that I’m able to stretch the last 6 weeks of my FMLA leave to allow me to work part-time for several months.
Excited for…fall! It’s my favorite season. The leaves changing, the crisp fall air, the fall festivals, football games, cute fall clothes… I love it all!
Cooking…lots of crockpot meals these days. Monday is crockpot night, which works well because I can prep it on Sunday and it’s awesome to start out the week with a meal all cooked and almost no clean-up.
Watching…So You Think You Can Dance (no spoilers please! I’m way behind everyone else, thanks to Fox’s annoying decision not to put episodes on Hulu until 30 days after they air) and Suits.
Listening…to the It’s a Thing podcast. I need some new music suggestions (from you!)… I am totally out of the loop these days.
Hoping…my veggie-packed lunches and some high-protein snacks will help me kick the raging sweet tooth that I’ve been having lately. (i don’t think it’s working… I might have been eating chocolate frosting with a spoon earlier this week.)
Reading…Crime and mystery novels galore! I finished an Agatha Cristie novel, and I’m currently reading two more mysteries, including one by Robert Galbraith (aka a little author you might have heard of named J.K. Rowling!)
Fitness-ing…lots of walking! I am also doing a few planks here and there, very cautiously. I hope to start running again soon, but I won’t get clearance from my doctor to start that until sometime in mid-September (I hope).
Linking up with HopefulLeigh.
