I fully intended to get out my usual Tally Monday this week but I went on vacation and decided not to take my laptop at the last minute. I could have done it from my phone but I hate that so I decided to have a combined TM next week.
Vacation also got me thinking a lot about what I want out of life, through no particular fault of its own. So often I feel like I am running in circles. So often I feel overwhelmed. I miss having coffee on the back deck and I miss just sitting and being quiet. I know that there are a lot of things outside of my control right now, especially with a baby in tow, but I know that I have to make some changes in my life.
I need to get rid of stuff and make my house more livable.
I need to stop ordering books through the library.
I need to cut back on my Podcast subscriptions. (I’m up to 62)
I need to start budgeting.
I need to stop spending so much time on busy work and get back to the things that are important to me and ACTUALLY ENJOY THEM: My family, my friends, my cats, books and board games and records.
I need to sprinkle my days and weeks with simple pleasures.
And I need to start right now. Today.
I can’t wait to TM with you all next week!
