Anne, at In Residence, hosts a linkup on the first Wednesday of every month and invites readers to share a few things that they are currently up to. Be sure to head over to Anne’s blog and see what everyone is up to this month.
making plans for my sister’s bachelorette party/weekend in Austin, Texas coming up in October. If anyone has any suggestions on what to do/see/eat there, please share!
taking time for myself. I ran myself ragged the whole month of August…starting new routines with Kindergarten along with other life happenings going on, I just never felt like I had any time for myself. Well, last week I hit a wall and Robert noticed and told me to go out one night after work by myself. I can not tell you what a difference it made for me and my mindset.
discovering that counseling has been very beneficial for me and that I am beginning to look forward to it each week. I might dread going, but I always leave feeling better.
consuming too much social media. I have noticed I consume way too much in the way of social media and I am looking for ways to tone it down. I know I need to delete Facebook and Instagram from my phone and/or do a social media free weekend, but it is hard to make yourself do. It’s crazy how addicted you can be to something and not even really realize it. I think sometime this month I am going to do a social media free day and hopefully that will in turn gear me up to go a whole weekend without it and then maybe eventually I will stop being so dependent on it.
saving money. Not happening. I have been doing a poor job of not spending money this past month. I need to work on this. I think I mentioned this a couple of months ago about wanting to start bringing my lunch to work in order to save money from eating out. I have done absolutely TERRIBLE at this. I think I’m going to try my hand at it again this month. I know a lot of money could be saved if I would just plan/prepare ahead and bring my lunch, so I’m going to try it again this month!
I know I missed last month’s link-up, but I really do enjoy this fun link-up every month and how it gives little snippets into my life throughout the year. Please come back next month when we discuss what we are currently arranging, loving, embracing, purchasing, and sharing.
Until next time…keep it simple!
Ooh, Austin is a great place for eating – we had a great trip there a couple of years ago if you want some ideas 🙂 http://www.anneinresidence.com/2016/02/around-world-austin-texas.html
Glad to hear you got some time to yourself – sometimes you just need a bit of that to feel like a new woman! And glad to have you back on the linkup this month. Have a great September!
