Thank you all for your kind words + congrats on my announcement of buying a house! To say it’s all been a whirlwind is an understatement, but nonetheless, very exciting! I’ve hated being away from the blog so much, but all of the house stuff ended up being much crazier than I anticipated! So here’s a little glimpse at what life has been like lately.
(Still Getting) Settled Into the House
I’ve been busy getting settled in, unpacking boxes (only a few boxes of clothes/shoes left to deal with), and assembling + re-assembling lots of furniture. Thank you to all the people who’ve helped me with it! Not to mention I’ve also been doing quite a bit of online shopping for house things!
It’s been hard since I’m eager to have everything set up and perfect, but I’m trying to pace myself with all of the home projects and decorating. After all, a home isn’t built in a day! A couple things that are on the wish list that I’m eager to get set up? Trying out a mattress-in-a-box and getting my house set up to be a “smart house” – and no, not like the Disney movie!
Bought a New Computer
Normally this would be an exciting thing, but after a year and almost 3 months, my MacBook Air decided to go caput on me. Something in the logic board fried and after bringing my computer into the store, was told it would cost around $500 to repair. I about fell out of the chair when they told me this (which was after they had already typed up everything in the system and were getting ready to mail it in for repair). Normally I buy the extended warranty but since I’ve been a proud Apple owner for about a decade now and haven’t had any issues, I opted to skip it this time around. Murphy’s Law, right? Ugh. I ended up sitting on the info for a couple days and ultimately decided to purchase a new laptop. But this time around I’m making sure to get that warranty!
The past couple years I’ve been struggling with finding the time for reading. And that includes choosing a Netflix binge over a book. But I think I’m actually getting back on a steady roll with it this year! I’ve already read Rainbow Rowell’s Landline and Liane Moritary’s Big Little Lies (I can finally watch the HBO show – yay!), and I’ve read a good chunk of A Hundred Summers, which I’m 100% glued to. And speaking of books, my sisters arranged a couple of my bookshelves with rainbow color coding. I’m obsessed with this look.
Dealing with a Cold/Sinus Thing.. Ugh
I’ve done such a great job avoiding being sick throughout most of cold and flu season, but it finally caught up with me this week. I never know whether it’s a cold or sinus thing (both have similar symptoms), but despite my best attempts to nip it early on, I’ve gone from sore throat to feeling ok, to a little nose congestion, to the cough, and now here I am as we roll into the weekend… with no voice. I’m living on soup, tea, and Emergen-C!
So that’s the latest with me. Nothing too exciting, just busy busy! Tell me, what’s new with you?!
