Monday Five Countdown # 13

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

It's Monday again, so it's once again time to do the Monday 5 Countdown created by Bookish Penguin.


Five Things I'm Grateful For:
  1. That did not catch/have the stomach virus/food poisoning that my boyfriend was afflicted this week.  Also that I was able to work from home and take care of my very sick boy without guilt.
  2. That my little sister was finally able to find a good teaching job.  I am sad that she will no longer be living in the same city that I am and will be far away, but I am happy for her.
  3. That Sunday was a much better day than Saturday.
  4. That we did not get the snow that a lot of places seemed to get overnight.  My sister woke up to 14 inches of snow and was snowed in (but still had to get to work, of course).
  5. March is here! 
Four Things I Can't Stop Thinking About:
  1. My new sleep medication.  I started it a week ago and still haven't been able to tell if it's really helping or not because my schedule has been all off this last week.
  2. How to budget for a what will likely be a $10,000+ new roof this year.  Every time I spend a dollar I am thinking about whether or not I should be spending it.
  3. Vacation.  I desperately want/need a week away on a beach somewhere.  I don't think it would be smart to still go to Hawaii given the roof situation.
  4. The last book I finished called The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.  It was simply amazing.  Loved it, loved it, loved it. 
Three Things I Want To Accomplish This Week:
  1. Get on a good sleep schedule and wake up rested and refreshed each morning.
  2. Continue to plan an alernate beach vacation.  I hear Florida is great this time of year.  :)  And my grandparents just happen to live down there... and it's been many years since I've been... and it's much closer and cheaper to fly there and...
  3. Finish reading Alias Grace.
Two Things I Am Working To Be Positive About:
  1. My new medication.
  2. Life in general.  This last week has been very rough.  This week will be better!
One Random Thing:
  1. I saw Eat Pray Love this weekend while my boyfriend was out at a bachelor party.  It is almost always the case that I believe the book version of a story is better than the movie version.  In this case, I thought the book was WAY better than the movie.  Even if it did have James Franco in it.

One of the reasons why I like visiting your blog so much is because it has become a daily reference I can use in order to learn new nice stuff. It's like a curiosities box that surprises you over and over again.

Stories, advice, and random thoughts from a thirty-something female.

Many people in their thirties are dealing with common issues and concerns. Some of these include buying a home, establishing a career, starting a family, and dealing with aging parents. I will blog about all these things as well as other every day stuff as I make my way through this third decade of life.
