My little guys allergies have kicked into high gear quite a bit early. Did we skip winter altogether? I picked him up from school and his eyes were all puffy and watery and he had a headache. My poor little chipmunk. We've been to the doctor a couple of times trying to nail down a regimen that might help...
I can't believe its March already. I've stuck to my goals of more reading, less tv and social media only a few times a week. Definitely feeling more energized and more productive. I had a little snafu that I talked out with my therapist about the need to pile my plate super high with things that force me to put the commitments I make to myself on the back burner (and subsequently spiral into a complete meltdown). Lesson learned. Keep the commitments to myself the way I keep them to others. I'm much happier that way.
Reading... I've just finished reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and I loved every minute of it. I bought it when it was first published a couple of years back and was reminded that I hadn't finished it when I ran across this Huffington Post list of 21 Books From the Last Five Years Every Woman Should Read. Next up: Picked up a copy of Loving Frank by Nancy Horan from the library.. recommended by a friend during a conversation about our mutual love of mid-century modern furniture and architecture. A novel about the love story between (apparently) passionate and impossible Frank Lloyd Wright and the married Mamah Cheney..
Listening to.... Let me tell you without a shadow of a doubt that Elevation Chuch Podcast is my Jam. Steven Furtick's sermons stir my soul like that first sip of morning coffee. I look forward to listening and the encouragement and inspiration and positive tone it sets for my week.
P.S. We took the kiddos on a whirlwind last minute trip to Florida over Winter Break and had so much fun.
