Looking For Something?

It’s Friday! Let’s get current…
I am currently:
Attempting to harness my little cousin Olivia’s fierceness. I mean, will you just look at her in that picture? Pretty sure there is not a bone in her body that is not self-assured and ready to rock. You gotta get your inspiration where you can, and today I’m trying to move through life like a self assured lady who knows how to roar. I have to say this is harder than it looks. 🙂
Working On keeping August free of excessive socialization. As such, I’m planning lots of homebody-esque activities: Cooking Marathons, Project Life Craftiness, Roku-obsessing, Cabinet Organizing, Book Reading, Garden Tending, Backyard Picnicking. WAHOOOOO!
Lamenting the fact that my workouts this week have been almost non-existant. Monday we did Angie which involves (among other things) doing 100 pull ups. At about 75 pullups in I just ripped my hands up completely. My grip technique is clearly sub par and this is such a painful way to come to that realization. Tuesday I couldn’t even think about picking a barbell up without bleeding. Wednesday + Thursday was more of the same. Today is the first day I will even be able to go back to the gym and I’m frustrated about that. I’m not *completely* sane when I don’t workout. This week has been full of odd brain fog and a little bit of sadness over that.
Listening To The Sex with Emily podcast. Have you guys been watching Miss Advised on Bravo? That show is kind of a train wreck but an entertaining one to witness. One of the gals is from the Bay Area and does a weekly podcast on all things sex. I like her non-judgmental vibe, and she was the most normal on the show the best so I tuned in to her podcast. WOW is it full of, um…adult content. I a little bit turn fuscia when I listen to it but it’s also smart, entertaining and the radio equivalent to Really Good People Watching, so I haven’t turned it off yet. Think PhD in Sexuality, not necessarily Trying to Hard To Be Vulgar.
Thankful that Garrett remembers to do things like take the garbage cans out on Thursday night. I am terrible at remembering these types of repetitive house chores and if I was left to my own devices my life would most certainly resemble Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout’s!
Reading Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and loving it so far. It sounds like people either love or hate this book. I love a polarizing read! Plus it’s been a while since I flipped my way through a good page turning book with lots of suspense. I’m excited about that. But also a little worried since I do most of my reading right before bed. EEK! 🙂
So what’s going on with YOU currently?
