I feel like I’m a creature of habit, so exciting updates in my life will probably be few and far between. That said, I have some mundane updates–some blog related, some not.
- I subscribed to some book boxes. Did you catch that some in there? I couldn’t help myself and subscribed to three different book boxes. I plan on doing a 3-month trial period for all three, and then I’ll decide which, if any, I want to continue. I subscribed to: OwlCrate, LitJoy, and the Book of the Month club. What does that mean for my blog? Unboxing posts! Are you excited? Because I am! Historically I’ve clung to my Kindle like it’s a newborn babe, but I’m excited to have some physical books to read. And oh, that new-book smell . . .
- I applied for a new job. If you follow my Twitter, then you might already know I applied for a new job at my company. This is both exciting and nerve-wracking, because I applied for something completely out of the realm of what I’ve been doing for the past 10 years. It’s also, technically, a demotion, since it’s a salary grade beneath where I’m at. Money isn’t everything, and I’m craving a change. The waiting game begins–will I get an interview? Will I get flat-out rejected? Will they hate me?
- Both kids are sick. Seriously, we had such a good streak going–both kids had been healthy for months. It’s hard being a working parent when your kids get sick. My husband and I usually tag-team staying at home with them, with my mom thrown in there every now and then for extra support. We’ve been going through an endless stream of tissues and cough drops. Send help. And chicken soup.
- There’s snow on the ground. Is that a life update? Well, it should be. I hate snow. Snow and bad weather always makes me anxious. I leave work at 5:45 a.m., so the roads are rarely plowed at that hour, and if they are, they’re not done well. I’m in constant panic of putting my vehicle in the ditch. Luckily, that hasn’t happened. Yet. On the plus side, the job I applied for would cut my commute by 20 minutes (fingers crossed!)
- I finished our taxes. As with most years, we either break even or have to pay in. This is a “break even” year. I’m always slightly envious of those who get big chunks of money back at tax time. Give me your monies!
What’s new in your life?
