Life lately: Looking up.

Life is looking up. I’m working on getting my balance back, and so far, not bad. September has flown past at lightning speed, and I’m pretty sure that if I blink, October will be gone too. I’m kind of happy to see the arse-end of 2017.

A lot of good stuff happened in 2017, but it also had its own share of meh. It’s probably just defined as adulting, and I can live with that.

So, here’s a rundown of what’s been going and not going in the last while:

  1. Gym is still going. I’m silently wishing I could do the personal training thing twice a week. It helps me if someone kicks my ass into pushing myself.
  2. My cooking is uninspired at present. I find myself sticking to the usuals or the one-pot stuff. Not bad, but not great either. I need to start experimenting in the kitchen again.
  3. Ellie is allergic to the world. We got the results back, and there are 32 items she’s allergic to. I’m now the dog-mom that cooks for the furkids. And I’m okay with that.
  4. We’re actually going away this December. A first! I’m really excited to pack up and go to another location for a few days. I should start stockpiling wine.
  5. There are literally 9-ish weeks to Christmas. Cue the panic! I’m always overwhelmed by the silly season… I have no idea why.
  6. I’m still knitting, and I have a seriously growing wool stash. I find it mostly de-stressing and slightly therapeutic. I’m trying to do more of it.

Things are looking up. I’m finding ways to deal with feeling overwhelmed, and I have a great support structure in place. I actually haven’t felt this zen in a while – so this is a great feeling to have, to be honest.

I do still need to get back into my cooking groove though. Hopefully, soon I shall find my inspiration again. A girl can wish.
