Aside from feeling a bit worn out my schedule, here's what currently happening in my world!
Reading: The Boys in the Boat. Phil's mom said it was one of her favorite books of the year so I had to check it out as she is a former English teacher with great taste! I'm about half way through and am really enjoying it!
Loving: the glow of my tree. The mild winter weather we've had. Knowing that I'll get to see all of my siblings and their kids between now and Christmas.
Thinking: about my goals for 2016.
Frustrated: by the fact that Donald Trump is still in the running for the Republican candidate and that he continues to do so well in the polls. I normally would try to watch some of the debates so I could get a feel for the candidates and their views on things but I can't handle listening to him so I have watched zero debates. I wish he would go away. Forever.
Feeling: excited for the Christmas season and way more prepared than I usually am at this point as my Christmas cards have been mailed, all of my presents have been bought (mostly online) and most are wrapped and under the tree!
Anticipating: spending time with my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew this weekend. I don't get them to myself very often so am looking forward to seeing them, even though it will be for less than 24 hours! We'll be doing an early Christmas and I really hope that my niece and nephew like the books I picked out for them (I have a policy of only buying books for my nieces and nephews; I feel they get more than enough toys).
Watching: the Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I have been working through the seasons for about a year now but am only on season 3 but I really want to get through them now that I know that they will be releasing a new season on Netflix!
Sad: about the state of our world. Terrorist attacks, gun violence, poverty in other nations, you name it. There's a lot to be sad about and sometimes I feel quite hopeless about the things that are happening in our world.
Working: out 6 days a week and doing a variety of things such as running, yoga, and strength training!
Grateful: for so much. Phil, my family, my friends, my health, a warm home, financial security, and the list goes on and on.
Listening: to Adele's new album. It's amazing.
Wishing: that time would slow down a bit. It scares me how fast this past year went!
What are you anticipating, watching, and grateful for these days?
