Currently :: October 2016

A new month means that it’s time for another Currently. Month’s prompts from Anne are: cheers-ing, organizing, dreaming, buying, and listening.
I am going to join in on Gretchen and Kristin‘s link up called “What’s New With You?” which is more or less the same concept as ‘Currently’. Their prompts are more of a status check-in which will be good for accountability for me.

Cheers-ing: No more drinking for me, unfortunately any alcohol or anything overly rich or heavy irritates my GI tract. This means that I get to cut a ton of things out of my every day. I probably should cut down/out coffee, but right now, it’s the only thing keeping me going.

Organizing: Holiday decor. It sneaks up on you how much you have accumulated. I LOVE decorating for the holidays, and have some really fun stuff. 

Dreaming: Of being out of debt and a trip to Disney. Neither Ry or I have ever been, and we have a goal of going Christmas 2018.

Buying: Things for the house. Heating oil, storage shelves, fencing, window insulation, a new fridge (thanks a lot previous owners), doggie doors, a new van…

Listening: to kitties and babies playing. We adopted some really cute kittens a few weeks ago, and they have been amazing with the kids, although we have definitely had to get on the kids about being gentle with the poor kitties.

Last Month Recap:

Blogwise: We had just under 400 views for the blog in September, which really isn’t bad since I kind of bailed and took a long summer break from posting. Bacon Cheeseburger Bake, Cheeseburger soup, Baby Prepping 2.0Momager Planner, and Ideas for Sour Milk were all big posts.

Real life: Septembers are always rough around here. It’s the end of the Fiscal year for the USAF, which means that Ry’s job gets slammed by all the procrastinators and stuff. He spends a lot of extra hours at the office.

Exercise: All the snow and changing weather has my arthritis acting up and making it difficult just to walk, much less get out ad exercise. (excuses, excuses, I know.)

Diet: With Ry being gone a lot this month, we’ve resorted to eating takeout; a really bad habit that we fall into quite often =/ I should just grab supplies for Slow Cooker Meals and prep on the weekend.

House: It’s been interesting fitting our stuff into the new house; as it more or less is a 3bedroom with a MIL suite rather than a true 4 bedroom like our base house. We might be having my sister come live with us in the spring, so our Star Wars office idea may not happen ):

Goals: I want to follow through and complete a 13 days of Halloween, but I need to research more on how to make it more Christ centered without completely reiterating the same thing every day.

Anne hosts a “Currently” monthly link up with 5 words to describe what the writer is doing at that moment in their lives. The linkup occurs on the first Wednesday of each month if you’d like to join in (: Gretchen and Kristin‘s link up called “What’s New With You?” is a monthly link up that encourages bloggers to update everyone on their lives, outside of what they would normally write on their blogs.
