Be Kind. Do Good. Love is a Verb.

Weekend Reflections 11/18

Looking outside...it was dark and cold when I started writing this. No, seriously. It was 6:45 on Saturday and dark outside. The sky has lightened since and it's currently 27 and clear. Our high is likely to be around 48.

Listening...to The Doctor walking on the treadmill in the office. The Artist was invited to participate in the high school drama competitions today. The Doctor took him to the high school to meet his friends at 6:30. He does a pantomine that is amazing and he's part of an ensemble piece as well as doing a scene design.

Loving...that I have been able to work with The Doctor in his office. I like his patients and spending time with him. I'm finally getting the hang of the billing system and I think we have most of the bugs worked out. Technology is nice when it works. 

Thinking...that I might go back to bed for awhile. 

In my kitchen...Not sure yet about dinner. Probably something with The Artist after the competition today. The Doctor is going to the BSU/Air Force game with a friend and The Boy is working tonight. The Doctor brought me a sausage croissant from Jack in the Box this morning. I love those.

Wearing...fuzzy yellow minion jammies, black turtleneck and black slippers.

Reading...Still working on the same ones: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown and The Confectioner's Tale by Laura Madeleine. I need to write a review for The Room on Rue Amélie by Kristin Harmel.

Today...I'm not sure. I do have laundry, because that is neverending and some notes and lists to go over with The Doctor regarding billing.


Feeling...tired. Weary. I realize that is my mantra these days, but it's true. I've kept a lot of my emotions inside for too long. Self-reflection can be a bitch. I snap and snark when I should find better ways to let those emotions out. I am so blessed to have a husband who is able to get me to talk and who has amazing insight and patience.

Planning...this next week for Thanksgiving and such. The Artist is off school all week.

Gratitude...for my husband and sons. For essential oils that help me so much with emotions and health. Seriously. doTERRA has these new Yoga Collection oils that are beyond fantastic. I'm not currently doing yoga, but I have been using the oils for grounding and centering. So, so helpful. I have a link in the left sidebar, if you want to check them out. 

I love that holistic health and western medicine can work together. It doesn't need to be one or the other.

From my world... 

If Captain America says it, then it's true. You're all beautiful. Have a fantastic Saturday.

What about you? What are you reflecting on this week? How has your week gone?


  1. I'm glad working with the doctor is working out for you! Stay warm!

  2. Major accomplishment of the day: I survived a pre-Thanksgiving shopping trip to Costco! Now I can do anything!

    It's funny that it's so cold where you live. Here in the Phoenix area it's still in the upper 80s. Ick. I'm sick of sunshine, darn it!
