Reading The Martian by Andy Weir thanks to one of my boy besties.

Waiting impatiently for a much-needed massage scheduled late this afternoon.

Feeling stressed and nervous due to lots of changes.

Looking forward to sleeping in this weekend.

Watching The Strain.

Cooking a roast this weekend - comfort food might soothe me some right now.

Starting some new crafty projects, namely some stitching and a planner.

Deciding whether I want to rewrite/edit my book from last year or start a new one. I'm not happy with what I've written in its current state, and I have some good ideas brewing.

Appreciating my wonderful central air conditioning in these dog days of summer in KY.

Scheduling appointments and fun too now that I'm back at work.

Picking at my fingernails and cuticles due to anxiety; I've bloodied several, unfortunately.

Wearing red lipstick - it's a power thing for me.

Practicing saying no to things I don't want to do.

Trying not to take everything so personally, albeit without much success.

Searching for the perfect A5, 7 ring binder/planner that doesn't cost a fortune.

Considering canceling the bulk of my cable since I stream almost everything anyway.

Setting like 5 alarms each morning because I'm paranoid about oversleeping for work.

Relishing the fact that Kel is finally back home in BG; I missed my girl terribly.


  1. Great picture -- the red lipstick looks really good on you. Sorry you're feeling stressed out. I've been stressed at work this summer and I hate it because it makes it harder to shift gears and be a nice person to be with at home.

  2. Sorry about the stress - hope you have a very relaxing weekend!

  3. I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on The Martian. I read it last year...loved the concept but thought it very tedious. I actually think that this may be one time when the movie may be better than the book.
