Monday Musings

If you follow the blog at all, you probably know that we're moving to Hawaii this spring for my husband's Air Force job. The move is fast approaching -- my last day of work is just over two weeks away and the movers will be packing us up in less than three weeks. We're selling our house (I'm going to miss it so much!) and the realtor will be having professional photos taken for the listing on Wednesday. So we've been cleaning and organizing and mulching and raking and painting pretty much non-stop since Friday afternoon. I, my friends, am ready for a very long nap!

Highlight of the week: I have some personal time at work that's use-or-lose, so I had Thursday off work last week. It was such a treat to have an extra day off, and the weather just so happened to be amazingly gorgeous that day. And I met my husband for lunch at our favorite Indian place. AND I finally finished sorting through all the pictures from the last year and they're now ready to print out whenever I have a good coupon. (When I say "they" I mean 400 prints! Craziness! But we did take several big trips in the past year.)

Reading: I finished "The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend" by Katarina Bivald (review) and "Poor Your Soul," a wonderful memoir by Mira Ptacin (review), and read the first teeny weeny little bit of "Letters to the Lost" by Iona Grey.

Buying: Last night I rewarded myself with my first Society 6 purchase -- this bookish pillow cover! It's from the shop bookwormboutique.

Watching: Flowers popping up in the garden. And squirrels frolicking. And lots and lots of basketball. (Ugh on the basketball!) Oh, and I finally watched the series finale of "Downton Abbey." I'm so sad to see the show go, but I thought the ending was really well-done.

Listening to:

Looking forward to: Getting this house sold! And going to Indiana to see my relatives for Easter next weekend. And seeing everything bloom in the garden one last time.


  1. What an amazing experience it's going to be for you! I can't imagine all the work going into this move. Take it one day at a time and know that this too shall pass. And soon you will be in beautiful Hawaii!

  2. I have eyed so many things on Society much cute stuff on there!!

    How exciting about your upcoming move! It will probably be more exciting after you're done! Moving is so stressful for sure! Hang in there!!
