Mindful Monday: Coffee

Hello lovely people!

I’m a little late putting this up today, but Monday is back and I needed a whole lot of coffee to wake myself up this morning. Today has been my first day back at work and I am so very ready to see my little princess as soon as I get off and can go back home. I stressed all weekend and most of last week over how it would be to go back. So far it hasn’t been too bad, since I really do like my job, but I would still much rather be home with the little one. It definitely feels like I’m missing out.


What’s Been Happening…

Surprisingly, everything on that little list I made last time actually happened!

The laundry has stayed caught up – at least as much as laundry can stay caught up, especially with the baby. I’m still figuring out how to do loads around my work schedule but once I figure that out, we should be able to stay caught up with everything! Overall the house actually stayed reasonably clean and I was even able to do a few small organizational projects, like the bathroom and the bedroom closet. I actually felt semi-productive for once.

The Tiny Princess is on a fairly good schedule, particularly regarding bedtime and getting up in the mornings. It’s still a rocky road, of course, but it always will be with kids from what I’ve been told! I’ve taken her several different times to see the chiropractor (nothing majorly wrong, just making little tweaks to make sure everything stays as she grows) and she’s starting to sleep longer stretches at night, which is great too.

Dear Husband and I were able to go out and enjoy our local theater’s production of Wizard of Oz this last weekend. It was a whole lot of fun, especially since we’re good friends with so many of the actors! I had a hard time leaving the little princess, with it being the first time to really leave her with someone else, but I enjoyed the evening anyways!

What’s Coming Up…
  • I need to get rid of the cold that I somehow managed to get. Not fun.
  • Try and adjust to being back at work again and the new schedules.
  • Figure out whether Nanowrimo is in the cards for this November!
  • Start writing more again, outside of blogging.
  • Focus inward on loving myself and my little family through this stage of life.
  • Sort out budgeting and paperwork that has piled up.

I’ve Been Reading…

… a crime thriller – Casino Girl, by Leslie Wolfe. I’m really enjoying it and may end up buying the rest of the books in the series. Very intriguing, and I don’t read a lot of crime novels, so that’s kind of new for me!

Love and kindness,

Katharine Marie
