January wasn’t the bright shiny hopeful month we’d all been wishing for after the black cloud of 2016, but that’s behind us now and I am keeping my fingers crossed that February will be different.
Here’s what I’m “Currently” loving…
packing: Nothing….yet. I will be heading to Savannah later this month, but I still have a couple of weeks before any tangible prep work has to happen.
jonesing: For something new. Clothes, house stuff, you name it. I am in a big “out with the old and in with the new” kind of feeling. Fortunately, our budget is keeping my impulses in check, but man, am I ready for a change of view.
texting: With a lot of my local girlfriends. One of the things I have been trying to be better about in the last couple of months is spending more face time with the people I have the option of enjoying face time with. I’ve been lucky, and most of my group has been meeting me half way, and we’ve been trying to grab dinner or something at least every other week. It’s nice to have “girl time”, and Andy doesn’t mind having a quiet evening to stomp zombies. It’s a win-win.
wearing: Yoga pants and tank tops like it’s my job. Obviously this doesn’t include work, but as soon as I get home, it’s stretchy pants all the way, baby. There is even a stack of them on my dresser. If I have to actually leave the house, I’ll add a kimono and a pair of sunglasses, you know, so it looks like I actually tried.
hearting: As sappy as this sounds, my husband. January is always a rough time for me, things start getting crazy at the office, and I tick off another year past since I lost my younger brother, but Andy always has my back. There to offer support, cupcakes, and “just because” hugs (which is a big deal since he isn’t a touchy-feely guy). I don’t need a pink and white holiday to remind me that he is pretty freaking awesome. I try to make sure he hears it, heartfelt, at least once a day.
