Mindful Monday: Voices

Hello beautiful wonderful people!

It’s time for another one of our Mindful Monday posts – a roundup of things I’m currently into, some current goals, and some mini updates on my personal life.

I’m still tired. All the time. But I think overall everything is going well – its just really starting to hit me that we’re most definitely on the clock now with this baby. We’re about to hit 37 weeks and then it’s anyone’s guess when she’ll make her appearance! But getting to that point is exhausting. Seriously – anytime anyone asks how I’m doing my answer is “good… very tired! but good.”


Since Last Time…

Honestly… I’m not at all where I wanted to be with the unpacking. It feels like it’s taking much longer to get everything sorted than I originally planned. I’ve been trying to give myself some grace because I just can’t do nearly as much as I want to most days and that has to be okay, no matter what I might think otherwise. It’s still hard not to feel a little frustrated with it though.

The baby shower was so lovely! We both very much enjoyed getting together with friends and chatting about small humans. I’m so grateful to everyone who made it an amazing time to celebrate baby A.

August is about to be over and I really hope the heat dies with it. I am tired of trying to stay inside all. the. time. because I overheat so quickly. It’s frustrating. I want autumn already!

Other fabulous things that happened included getting a washer and dryer hooked up so that we can now do our laundry without leaving the house! I’m also trying to learn all the various rules and varieties of Dungeons and Dragons so that we can start our own group sometime soon. And I’m slowly getting better at prepping food in advance which makes weeknight cooking a lot easier!

Coming Up Next…
  • The waiting-for-baby game begins.
  • Finish unpacking and set up the nursery.
  • Do a happy dance when September gets here!
  • Get back into reading a little more again.
What I’m Thinking About…

My brain is a wild place to be at the moment and I wouldn’t even know where to start. I miss having all sorts of other things going on, but right now I’m a little focused on having a baby. One of these days I’ll get back to my other hobbies, but it’ll probably be in a month or two and not today! For the moment I’m going to focus on the million voices in my head that need me to focus on this one major life event.

Now it’s your turn! How are things going in your life?? Let me know!

Sending you love and kindness!
