Happy Thursday everyone. Felt like a currently kind of Thursday to me. Linking up with Kristin & Joey.
Feeling happy that today is my Friday. Fridays are my busiest day, which means today is going to be busy trying to get all my usual Friday stuff done, but I don't mind. A short week is always a reason to celebrate.
Laughing at the humour section of pinterest. Whenever I need a good laugh, that's where I go.
Wanting to volunteer and donate my time and money, I want to educate myself on how I can support the things that are important to me. I currently donate to two organisations monthly and those two are both important to me for different reasons and I am happy with my contributions to them both. But I want to know more, I want to do more, give more. I just don't know where to begin.
Listening to all sorts of things, surprisingly. I normally only listen to the P&P soundtrack at work, but lately I have been listening to the music from Miss Fisher's (yes, my middle name is obsessed) and my 'fun' playlist on spotify. The two most recent additions to that playlist are Still Falling For You by Ellie Goulding and Hold My Hand by Jess Glynne - both from the Bridget Jones's Baby soundtrack. Still Falling For You gives me all the feels. If you've seen the movie, it's the song at the end.
Working on paying off that debt y'all. Thanks to ebates (not an affiliate link, but you should be using it if you're not!) I made a large payment on one of my cards and I am *this close* to paying it off and I am SO proud of myself. I am trying really hard to get them all paid off before or as close to my 30th as possible.
Reading 2 books, I almost always have a real book, a kindle book and an audiobook going at the same time. Listening to The Boston Girl and kindle reading Lilac Girls. Just finished On Dublin Street (real book) last night. If you like romances, check it.
In case you are wondering how or why I read 3 books at once, it's because I am like Rory and it depends what I am in the mood for or what I am doing. I generally read the kindle before bed like before lights out, the real book is my reading on the couch or in bed but not before sleep book, and the audio is for the gym or driving. If the kindle or real book is super captivating, obviously I'll read regardless of whether I'm about to go to sleep or not, but I rarely listen to the audio unless I am driving or working out. I also have the kindle app on my phone so whenever I am waiting, in line somewhere or look like I am playing on my phone I'm actually reading.
Really exciting stuff, I know.
Watching nothing! I know, are you proud of me? I haven't started Miss Fisher's for the 4th time. I want to though, it's just hard with the current living situation (one TV in one large room and it's football season). I did cry a bit when I saw this though:
Don't judge me.
Hoping the appraisal for our house goes well. The inspection went well and we have 3 small things to fix. The appraisal is the last hurdle, and though I am not worried about it appraising for sale price, I am worried that something will come up based on the type of loan and type of appraisal (according to our realtor). Once that goes though, I will stress a little less about this whole thing. That's probably not true, I will probably continue to stress until we walk away from the closing.
Eating raisin bran for dinner. Can't stop, won't stop, should probably stop.
Drinking water, diet coke, tea and baileys - obviously not all at the same time, but that is basically all I drink all the time, in order of amount of consumption.
Excited for this weekend - tomorrow I drive to Richmond, VA to meet up with the girls for another half marathon and it's been so long since I have seen them, I'm sure we're gonna have a fabulous time.
Not excited for the driving part though - if you have any suggestions to help me stay awake on my long solo drives, please share!
