Y'all, I haven't written anything on this blog in awhile... it's been hectic 'round these parts.  I am excited to see this year end and am optimistic about what 2015 might bring for me and my small humans.  I'm linking up with Farley for her January Currently... here's what I'm currently up to:

Listening:  to House Hunters International...  man, I love HGTV.  I always try to figure out which house the people will pick, but I am usually wrong.  Guess what works for me isn't true about them :)  The International one is even more intriguing... I love looking at the different houses in amazing countries... I should travel more!
Loving:  my boys and our new family of 3.  I don't know what this is supposed to look like yet.  Not sure what divorce looks like for us...  we have moved into a new house and are navigating it together.  For now we have a safe place to live, internet (finally), DirecTV, groceries, and each other.  I have been surrounded by friends this last week and have felt so loved.
Thinking: about way too many things.  I keep rewriting my to-do list.  Just when I think I've got everything done... I think of 10 more things to write down.  I am only getting 3-4 hours of sleep a night so writing stuff down is WAY important.  I am normally a list maker anyways, but certainly more right now.

Wanting:  my pink eye to go away.  Seriously, what teacher gets PINK EYE over break?  I went to the doctor yesterday and got drops, but I still look kinda crazy!  I just want to keep my sunglasses on all day so people can't see me!  I know it will pass, but DANG...  PINK EYE?!?!

Needing:  a new coffeepot... any recommendations?  Y'all know I love coffee... plain or fancy.  What kind of coffee pot do I need?  I also need a new welcome mat.  I have looked on Amazon, but not sure where else to look for something fun and whimsical...  maybe even witty ;)  If you know of somewhere... leave me a comment!  I'm also needing some sleep... so if you find some extra ---> send it my way!

Yes, Maybe, Wish: Yes, to loving myself.  For me that looks like Crossfit, healthier choices, working on my gifted endorsement, and allowing myself some grace when I fail.  Maybe I will buy a house.  For now we will live in our happy rented home while I get my ducks in a row and figure out what our family of 3 needs.  But maybe it would be nice to start over!  Wish:  I would love to find a way to pay off my student loan.  It is the one thing that I angst over the most it seems... like this looming thing... always.  If I won the lottery... it would be the first thing I would do... pay that baby off!

I hope that you will have an amazing night and that you will wake up tomorrow ON FIRE with plans of awesomeness.  Can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for all of us!

  2. Oh wow, it sounds like you've had quite a lot going on. I'm so sorry about the pink eye! I got it earlier this year and was so afraid people would think I was just on drugs. I looked like a mess!

    Your goal of loving yourself is a great one. We should all remember to grant ourselves some grace, and I hope you are able to practice that as you navigate the new parts of your life. I don't know you at all, but you seem to be a really thoughtful and reflective person, and I'm sure you'll find your new normal soon.

    Best wishes for 2015!

  3. Here's hoping 2015 is a wonderful year for you and your boys...sounds like they are lucky to have you as a mom! Here's a fun doormat, if you like hedgehogs, that is!

    Happy new year!

  4. I feel like a heel… when I posted on IG I had no idea that you were going through such an ordeal….. I LOVE that you want to love yourself your kids will thank you for that… I am so sorry you and your kiddos are having to deal with such a huge transition… BUT you will look back on this part of your life and be proud of what you have accomplished… OK and that pink eye YUCK… I had it 3 times this year and finally figured out that I kept giving it to myself because I was using the same eyeshadow and eyeliner and mascara!!!
    thanks so much for linking up
    I hope 2015 brings you lots of happiness and blessings!!!
