Taking Stock

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot.

I don’t have any fun pictures to intro this, so we’re just going to jump right into the list:

Making: cupcakes in the morning!
Cooking: Nothing at the moment, but I made this for my mom and sisters earlier.
Drinking: water.
Reading: Seveneves by Neal Stephenson.
Wanting: to go to sleep.
Looking: at my laptop screen. Yes, I have a working laptop now!
Playing: with my sister’s dog Suri, lately.
Deciding: what to do about a certain situation with a client.
Wishing: that I could just make things that people would then buy, instead of having to work for clients.
Enjoying: being near the lake here in SC.
Waiting: for my sister’s A/C to be fixed.
Liking: going giddy over baby stuff with my mom and preggers sister.
Wondering: if I will rock the drive back home like I did on the way out here. Driving powerhouse!
Loving: my sister’s baby bump.
Pondering: why some people are the way they are.
Considering: business direction things, always.
Watching: lots of HGTV lately.
Hoping: the baby shower is a hit this weekend.
Marvelling: at how tiny newborn clothes are.
Needing: to write some blog posts for next week.
Smelling: nothing, really? Normal indoors house smell.
Wearing: PJs.
Following: Google Maps a lot in the last week.
Noticing: that I have a scratch on my leg from playing with the dog.
Knowing: that I still have some heavy life and biz thinking to do this year.
Thinking: that I am awesome at wrapping presents.
Admiring: the gas mileage on my car. This roadtrip really put the new car through its paces, and it did awesome.
Sorting: all of the nephew-to-be’s baby clothes by size/age! SO cute.
Buying: some crafty stuff for the baby shower.
Getting: tired earlier in the evening since I’ve been here.
Bookmarking: stuff for next week’s Tuesday Treasure Trove.
Disliking: how easily one client email can stress me out.
Opening: lots of new browser tabs.
Giggling: during time with my mom and sister.
Feeling: pretty good right now, tiny bit of stress, and very sleepy.

 

How are you doing lately?

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot. Making: myself take deep breaths and consciously relax my tense muscles. Cooking: nothing. No energy for cooking. We are living in a frozen food or fast food land right now. Drinking: My usual morning French vanilla cappuccino. Reading: the various news email subscriptions I get. Wanting: to go back to sleep. I wasn’t ready for Monday. Looking: at my planner and my Trello boards, and kind of panicking at how full they are. Playing: lately I’ve been playing the Talos Principle via Steam, and I […]

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot.   Making: plans. And spreadsheets. Wedding planning is no cakewalk, people (ba-dum-ching). Cooking: nothing lately. We’ve been living on frozen meals and take-out. Drinking: french vanilla cappucino. Reading: nothing at the moment. Between work and wedding planning, I haven’t had the mental energy for books. Sad but true. Wanting: to be done with this one project/client. She doesn’t know what she wants, but won’t listen to my advice. Monster headache situation. Looking: at different wedding photographer portfolios. Playing: Myst IV: Revelations. Sort of. I started […]

Looking: at the computer screen, out the window, and occasionally at the pup at my feet. Playing: I was playing Two Dots, but I beat all of the levels. I need a new iPhone game now. Deciding: what to tackle next after I finish […]
