Watching: How to Get Away with Murder. The most recent season is now on Netflix, and it’s intense. John and I have also been watching the second season of 13 Reasons Why, and I’m not impressed. Read the book and/or watch the first season but leave it alone when you finish.
Spending: time on my computer for an online course. I’m taking a three-week continuing education course through Safe Schools and Drake University. Since it can be done at any time, I spend Elijah’s naps out on the deck plugged in.
Drinking: White Claw and Truly brands of spiked steltzer. I’d pick one of these refreshing beverages over a glass of wine during the summer months.
Reading: The Art of Getting Over Yourself by Jon Leonetti. I’ve always been impressed with Jon’s dedication to the saints. This book dives into stories of saints who lived a more fulfilling life when they got over themselves and made their life about living for God.
Enjoying: Elijah time. Always. I laugh about how he organizes his cars sometimes by color, and sometimes by job (fire trucks, ambulances, construction crew…etc.). He’s very particular and borderline OCD, but so is his mom…
Listening: to Rachel Hollis podcasts. Thanks to a girls’ day by the pool at Lauren’s house for the Dais podcast recommendation. I saw Rachel’s book, “Girl, Wash Your Face” everywhere in the airport when I was flying home from Dallas. I’m always up for a podcast recommendation to make folding laundry and cleaning the house more enjoyable.
Anticipating: My friend Katie’s move to town. I can’t wait to have her and her family just minutes away. This blessing is such an answered prayer, and I can’t wait to experience life living close to my best friend.
Organizing: our summer calendar. Elijah and I have so much freedom in the summer but making sure I have date nights scheduled with John require more planning. Thankfully we have tickets to three upcoming concerts. Two are local and one will include a short getaway with Jay-Z and Beyonce.
