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

Making: my way through 2 weeks worth of emails.
Cooking: something for dinner tonight, no idea what yet as I need to go to the store first.
Drinking: my morning cappuccino.
Reading: emails. I finished the book I was reading last night.
Wanting: a week of vacation to recover from my trip, haha.
Looking: at my poor desk plant that was neglected while I was gone.
Playing: with Sienna, who I missed terribly.
Deciding: more wedding stuff, little details.
Wishing: to win the lottery even though I don’t play.
Enjoying: Texas warmth and sunshine.
Waiting: for paychecks.
Liking: that a new client actually did the homework I gave her before our meeting tomorrow.
Wondering: how much chocolate is too much chocolate.
Loving: being back on my own computer instead of doing everything on my phone or my mom’s ancient laptop.
Pondering: if my car will start without problems after sitting for 2 weeks outside.
Considering: what to wear today, as I still need to do laundry from my trip.
Watching: the new Netflix show Sense8. We just watched the first ep last night. Might take a few to get into it.
Hoping: Ian actually does decide his final groomsman this week as he’s said he will.
Marvelling: at how amazing our bed feels after 2 weeks away.
Needing: breakfast.
Smelling: nothing in particular at the moment, just normal home smell.
Wearing: PJs.
Following: my normal morning routine.
Noticing: how much clutter I still need to clean out of my office.
Knowing: I can’t lose steam on the wedding stuff or it won’t all get done.
Thinking: about the networking things I’m going to this week: here and here.
Admiring: the ceramic travel mugs from this shop.
Sorting: through actual mail from 2 weeks, not just email.
Buying: groceries later today, and things for the wedding always.
Getting: my to-do list for the week together.
Bookmarking: links for Tuesday Treasure Trove tomorrow.
Disliking: the feeling of overwhelm that is hovering even on my first day back.
Opening: the door to the backyard so Sienna can go out.
Giggling: nope, nothing to giggle at, at the moment.
Feeling: tired but determined. Relieved my mom is doing well with chemo.

How are you doing? What’s new in your world since I’ve been away?
