I've decided to try the individual link format thing again.
We shall see if it works. :)
I am tired. Wow... the whole getting-up-at-5:30am, constantly learning new things, not knowing what I am doing at my new job and still trying to help the childrens is exhausting me.
By the time Friday night comes... I am beat.
How do you people that work every day STILL have energy to go out on Fridays and such?
How? This way of life is still very new to me... so, any tips would be great.
Is it because I am older that I am feeling the 5:30 wakeup more?
I mean, when I was in high school I had to be out the door by 6:30ish every.single.day and I don't remember being tired. ha. I am suuuuure that I was, but I don't remember feeling like it.
Man oh man. This late 20s business is rough. ;)
(I kid. I kid.)
I am getting a little drained from the blogging world these days. I feel like I am not receiving much from it. Is it me? Is it what I am choosing to read? I have done a bit of purging of some blogs and such... I think it's helped. I think.
Because of that... I haven't written much of anything lately (partly due to #2), but I don't want to just add to the noise. I realize that everyone can choose to read my blog or not, but still.
I dunno... something to ponder, yet again, about why exactly I am writing.
BUT! In exciting blogging news...
I had my ONE YEAR blogiversary on Tuesday! :)
I did nothing to celebrate, but I am working on some things.
Maybe a blog redesign?!
Maybe one of those posts that highlights different achievements, if you will, on your blog?! Different, of course, than my refection of my year in real life. :)
Wait and see...
Ok, so I la la la la LOVE Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Like, adore them.
BUT... Starbucks (and anywhere else) does not have non-dairy options that are NOT soy. They call the allergy flag (they do... I have emailed them). I mean, COME ON!
Ugh. Anyway... so, I have to come up with another way to get my fill.
It is September and all I want is ALL THINGS PUMPKIN!
You can take the girl away from Fall, but you cannot take the love of Fall out of the girl!
Ok... I digress. I was satisfied for a bit with a black coffee, and two pumps of the pumpkin spice syrup, and then adding my own milk. It was fine. Then I thought that I might need to invest in my own frother so that I can enjoy the latte at home. But, it was more of a passing thought.
THEN! I saw the Pumpkin Spice Via packets. YES! It's not the same, at all, but they are still yum-o!
I tried it with warm almond milk... blah! Not impressed. I will have to try the vanilla almond milk, maybe? OR... coconut milk. Duh. I was just reading Sarah's (Amongst Lovely Things) post and she uses coconut milk AND has a handy-dandy frother!! :) Not expensive, and easy to use?!
Yes, please!! :)
Because I am in the car so much lately... I have been listening to Catholic radio a lot. The FM stations, not on satellite, although that would be nice.
Anywho... it's been great! I have been learning a lot. It's not always very engaging, but for the most part I am really interested in the topics that are discussed.
Yesterday there was an interview with Dr. Edward Sri about his new book, Walking with Mary. It sounds like a very cool book. I am always in need of getting to know Mary better!
So, isn't it funny when I am reading Rakhi's 7QTs, and she mentions that her hubby is giving AWAY a copy of the book?! :)
Go check it out, if you want to know more... and
don't enter to win! (I really want to win! ha)
Well, that's all from over here. I guess I had a lot more to say than I thought.
That's always how it happens! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
