Weekend Wrap-Up: New Year, Old Title

Haven't done a weekend wrap-up in a long time!

I am so glad the holidays are over! Yes, it was nice and all, but mostly, I just appreciate everyday life again; seems much less chaotic.

Riley and I visited a charter middle school yesterday, and we hope she gets in. It depends on the number of applicants and such, but it just felt right to both of us.

We got rid of some major clutter! Our living room looks so much more spacious now. Still some decluttering to go, but we're getting there.

Riley did not get elected to council, but she's okay with it, and I consider it a "win" that she went for it at all.

Instead of spending the Xmas money on clothes, I bought a new office chair for my PC desk at home, and an iHome dock to the most out of my music. And am enjoying them immensely. (Besides, my attempts to buy clothes just didn't work out. I seem to be between sizes and just couldn't find anything that I loved.)

I'm finding a new rhythm to life, a slow and steady process that is leading to more and more days of feeling like progress is being made, and that I still have time to enjoy my favorite leisure activities. This will sound touchy-feely gross, but I feel like I'm listening to my inner self more to do what's best for me. And the girls, of course.

Good luck with the charter school- I really hope she gets it.

Glad you're enjoying the chair and dock- sounds like a good combination too.

Laughed at touchy-feely gross :-)

I agree - I'm glad the holidays are over too. I feel positive about life. Hooray for January. I think it also helps that it's not raining constantly.
