Playground fun over the weekend.
Time // 6:47 p.m.
Place // home at my desk
Eating // cold pizza and strawberries
Drinking // cold water
Watching // nothing now but I did see Olympus Has Fallen over the weekend and it was intense but good.
Reading // Matched by Ally Condie. I just needed something quick and light.
Wanting // a new pair of earrings because I recently lost one of my only pair. I am always losing one earring.
Thinking // about how I hardly ever use Instagram anymore, and how I need to remedy that.
Creating // trying to complete my woven wall hanging before month’s end.
Hoping // Meredith’s epic struggle with teething will end soon. She’s soooo slow to teethe you guys.
Needing // to get my sewing machine repaired quickly if I’m going to get anything done on my quilt at any point. Also need to maintain motivation for quilt and relearn how to sew.
Anticipating // I don’t know…bedtime? The cookies I’m planning to make this weekend? I’m kind of tired right now.
It’s Monday, but it’s winding down. We didn’t have the greatest weekend, but it wasn’t horrible either. Just like…a lot of little annoying things happened and Meredith was fussy and needy the whole time and we were just “off” as a couple. But we made a pact last night to let it go and make this a fresh week and so far it’s going well.
Something hard happened at work today. I made a mistake, and it wasn’t really a big deal and certainly won’t cause any harm, but it was involving a patient and a medication and I’m still really mad at myself, embarrassed, and ashamed because it shouldn’t have happened. I could have easily just kept quiet but the right thing to do was to report it. I was so tempted to take the easy way out. No one would have known. I seriously considered it. But I didn’t do the easy thing. I submitted a report, and it didn’t feel good, but it’s done and now I can be a little less ashamed of myself. I am sure I will be hearing about it in the future but for now I’m doing my best to let it go.
I wish I could have a mentor in the area of feeding my family. Someone who is really good at budgeting, menu planning, and cooking (all this as a working mom) who will come take me under her wing and show me her ways until I am strong enough to fly free on my own. In return I will mentor her in…something. I don’t know what. But something! In the meantime I think I just need to buy this book and read it over and over.
Monday night thoughts. There you have ’em.
