While this was for quite some time a blog about my escapades as a single lady taking full advantage of that fact [called Absolutely Single].... I actually did indeed find someone who can put up with the crazy and am now absolutely taken. This blog now documents my thoughts and life while trying to live as optimistically as possible! I have a lot of random thoughts and most end up here.
I just moved to CO about a year and 1/2 ago, so I am documenting my new life, making friends, and exploring a new place! I absolutely love it and can't wait to see where else life takes me.
I have been suuuuper stressed out lately. The beginning of the year is always stressful, but as I wrote about last week I have a lot more going on as well. With my boyfriend back in town I at least am not a single puppy parent anymore but still, I’ve been at work until at least 5:30 every night (which when you technically can leave at 3:15 is a long time). Then of course I come home and do homework and then do some more school work.
My class this year is super chatty and just a bit crazy. I have also been stressed about that. However today I had a great (short) meeting with my principal where he basically said that he hasn’t seen anything wrong when he’s been in my room and to just keep trucking because I am doing a great job (and that he can’t wait to see me be a leader this year and that I have great ideas(!!!)). So basically my stress level went down a whole level after that.
Now I am at home, I just finished my last assignment for my class (ONE MORE TO GO!). I had a lovely date night with the boy. And we are heading out of town for a bit tomorrow. Can’t wait!
Another #huckthepup photo collage in honor of #NationalDogDay! We have had a fun night with a puppy cookie treat, family time, a delicious dinner (not pictured cause it just wasn’t as cute as him) and a rousing game of fetch :) love this little dude! #takingpicturesofpuppiesishard
Sometimes you wake up early on Sunday morning and decide that that’s great and now you can start all of the things on your long to do list!
Then sometimes that is short lived and you fall back asleep on the couch for 3 more hours…. Luckily my partner in crime is pretty much always down to nap with me. :)
Dogs are fun guys, you should really get one.
This has been an incredibly exhausting week. I started school, which is always crazy and exhausting, and my kiddos this year and SUPER talkative and crazy and I’m hoping that maybe that’s just because they aren’t used to sitting in school all day? I don’t know but man oh man do they wear me out. Then on top of that my doggie has been sick all week. And my bf is still in WA so I have been taking care of him myself. Which means all the middle-of-the-night poop clean-up and walks have been done by yours truly. Not too fun when I’m waking up like 2 hours earlier than usual. Then on top of that I’m working on one of my final classes for my Masters which means I’m starting my research project. While all of my classes have been work, this one I actually have to spend a lot of time on and do it correctly (and my professor is a crazy grader, ps I hate APA format). My stress level has been at a max. But it’s Friday. I made it through the 1st 3 days of school. And I have one more assignment for the week. And my dog now has some medication so hopefully he’ll feel better soon!
Tomorrow night I’m having some girls over for girls night and I am so excited to drink some Sangria and relax! But first, write a paper and deep clean/disinfect my house. BLegh
