Wow, April is almost over! Here's where my head is currently!
Reading: Jane Eyre. I don't read many classics but since I have all of this time off, I figured now was the time to tackle this book. Plus, it is one of my mom's favorite books! It's long (500+ pages) and I'm having trouble concentrating on reading these days so it is taking me awhile to get through it.
Loving: the warm spring weather we've had lately. It was 85 here this weekend so I actually went out boating with friends on Sunday. Crazy to be on the lake is April as there is still ice on my parents' lake!
Thinking: about my move logistics. It's a little tricky this time around since my belongings will go into storage until I can move into my new place on May 30th so I have to figure out how much clothes to pack into my car and what can be boxed up for delivery when I move in. Decisions, decisions. I'm also thinking lots about the drive back and where we'll stop and what snacks I should bring and blah blah blah. I am probably annoying my mom with all the text messages about my planning process!
Feeling: so relieved that I have found my way home. It still hasn't fully hit me yet I think because I am still here in Charlotte. I think it will fully hit me when I leave Charlotte for good and arrive in Minneapolis in May.
Anticipating: my move!! My move trumps everything.Along with that move home, I'm anticipating spending Memorial Day weekend at the lake cabin and FINALLY meeting my niece Evelyn. I have never gone this long without meeting a niece or nephew (she will be about 4 months when I meet her).
Watching: very little TV these days because my two favorite shoes are done - one for good (HIMYM), one until next season (Parenthood).
Sad: that my time with my employer came to such an abrupt halt. I had a feeling that would be the case but it was surreal to have just a matter of hours to say my goodbyes to everyone.
Working: out pretty much every day, sometimes twice a day. I start my new job on 5/27 so I clearly have a lot of time on my hands and working out is free and keeps me busy/sane. I reached my 30 workouts in 30 days goal yesterday. I'm proud of myself for achieving that because the first half of the month was hectic with lots of work travel and travel for interviews and such.
Grateful: that I found a unit in my old building. Having a place lined up to rent that I know I will LOVE is a HUGE relief.
Listening: to Ingrid Michaelson's new album. I love her music so much.
Wishing: that my body would let me sleep in. I have been going to bed later but I still wake up at 5:30-6 am and most days I wake up a couple of hours before that and have a hard time falling back to sleep. It's annoying to say the least as this is a time when I should be sleeping in until 7!
