It's Ok Thursday/Rumor Busting.
Oh friends, I need this more than usual this week. Not only because writing 'real content' takes a lot more time and energy, but because I'm a quirky mess these days. And so, for today at least, it's ok...
... to have a trip planned for every.single.month. this year. In fact, I will have only NOT been on a trip in the month of January I believe, this whole year (when it's over).
...to be thrilled to be road tripping to Daytona Beach this weekend to see my sister, bro-in-law, the in law family (I know they're not technically my in law family but I count them) and sweet baby Noa ( my 6 month old niece).
...to have spent your lunch break on Tuesday vacuuming your staircases because you were working a 15 hour day and hosting a lunch the following day.
...to have been thrilled when your friend/workout buddy announced Monday: 'minus the vacuum cleaner and basket of laundry, your house looks ready to be featured in a magazine' (winning!)
...to finally, at least temporarily, be back in a good reading groove.
...to have a few secrets. : ]
...to tell those secrets to a few people, so they're not totally secret anymore (I can't help myself, thank goodness with the girls)
...to hate being in the rumor mill. So much. I over share people, you know PLENTY...don't fill in the blanks with your own crazy ideas. In fact, let's clear a few things up...
1. The last rumored 'mystery man' that I received literal calls about? That was my Dad, and we're not dating though I do adore him and sometimes he takes me on dinner dates when I'm home. We're also 30 years apart in age and look exactly alike, so I'm not sure how a facebook picture of us started a rumor...
2. I am not...
Married, eloping, publishing a book (unless one of you wants to pay me for one), buying a second home, starting a business, running a marathon or adopting any children.
Just so we're clear. Any other rumors you'd like me to squash while I'm at it? I'm in the mood.
... to be proud of yourself for making it almost 2 weeks without buying any clothing, shoes, or accessories...6.5 months to go.
...to love borrowing clothes, now that I've tried it. Praise the Lord I have stylish, generous friends!
...to dream about traveling. Literally.
...to apparently be the one and only 26 year old girl who wants nothing to do with marriage or kids anytime soon (maybe ever for the kid thing). Like, think 30 people. Yes, really.
...to set everyday reading goals and put them on your to do list to mark them off. Yes, I realize this is a nerdy, OCD freak thing, and I do it. Every. Day.
...to be slowly, slowly getting better about calling people. On the phone. And actually talking, not typing. This is a big step, appreciate it.
...to hate when people talk on the phone around you so therefore, to have initiated a 'my phone stays in my purse when I'm with you' rule for myself. I left lunch with 9 texts, 2 phone calls, and 8 e-mails Monday and I felt great about it. That's 19 missed interruptions to one of the best lunch time convos ever!
...to be changing, changing, changing at a rapid rate.
...to be totally and completely in love with life, lately. I swear that whole positive attitude pledge has really worked a miracle.
Happy Thursdays. These posts have literally made this one of my favorite days of the week.
