What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm having a grumbly kind of morning. Can't pinpoint what it is specifically...still feeling under the weather...still stressed about all the putting away left to do at the apartment...general stress of too much to do and not enough time...annoyed by the barrage of telemarketing calls I seem to be getting on my phone lately. Seriously, those suckers are PERSISTENT.

But it is ALWAYS a good idea to take a sanity break and link up with with What I'm Loving Wednesday and stop to reflect on the good things going on right now.

I'm loving....that the apartment is shaping up, slowly but surely. I just need to realize that it will take some time and will not go from a mess to perfect overnight. I tend to get really hung up on seeing things a certain way and getting really frustrated when I can't get to that ideal quick enough for my own tastes.

I'm loving....simple pleasures. Having groceries stocked in the fridge and in the cabinets. Being able to get a load of laundry done and put away. Hauling bags out to the trash of things that have been purged from the apartment. All those things just feel wonderful.

I'm loving....that my "busy time" of collegiate advising is OVER for this school year. Hallelujah and PTL. Don't get me wrong, I truly love the work that I do there and everything, but it can be an exhausting couple of weeks.

I'm loving....a fabulous email from a friend announcing lots of good news in his life. It literally made me smile from ear to ear when I read it.

I'm loving....that my mom is coming for a visit this weekend. I think that has added some stress to the trying to get too much done at the apartment kick, but it will be good to have some time with her.

I'm loving....that it is OSCAR WEEKEND!!! And this year, I will actually have a pseudo Oscar Party since my mom and MVP will be there to watch with me. My mom even said she was excited to get a new pair of pajamas for the occasion.

I'm loving....that I am going to commit myself to another round of 40 posts in 40 days. I actually managed to successfully complete it last year (not so much in 2010...) and am ready to tackle this feat again. I'm also thinking about giving up soda AND online shopping to boot...but I think that may make me the saddest crankiest girl on the planet. What do you all think? Are you giving up anything for Lent?


  1. how timely, I'm giving up online shopping for Lent! I need to improve on my ability to take joy in the simple pleasures!

  2. I love the idea of giving up online shopping for lent. After a lot of debate I decided to give up dessert which will be so hard but so rewarding too. Good luck with the rest of your unpacking!

  3. I'm doing the blog every day through BlogHer and loving it!

    You're amazing to give up online shopping!! I don't know if I'd survive that...
