Happy New Year! This year is already off to a crazy start with our pending out-of-state move in just 4 short days. I’m a tad bit stressed to say the least but very excited for our new adventures. At the end of 2016, I fell off the Sunday Lately bandwagon. To be honest with you all, the end of last year was a bit rough. Since today is the first day of 2017 and the first Sunday Lately of the year, I decided to start off on the right note! Here’s my link up with the lovely ladies of The Blogger Tribe for my first 2017 Sunday Lately post. Enjoy!
Picking…can I change this one to Packing? For the last month we’ve been packing up our entire lives to prepare for our move to South Carolina. I’ve never moved out-of-state before so I am a bit frazzled. We hired professional movers so all we have to do is pack everything up. Packing has become our lives lately and I cannot wait until it’s done and this move is over with!
Telling…myself that it is okay to not be okay. This week has been emotionally challenging. I won’t go into specifics now because I am not ready but I will soon. There is a weird stigma around telling people you don’t feel good. You should never feel ashamed of that! It’s okay to not be okay in the moment. Acknowledging that is the first step to moving forward to feeling better.
Debating…on gym memberships for the hubby and I. Once we move, we will have a little more time to get back into the work out groove. Judd’s hours will be a little better and mine should be as well. I will still be practicing yoga frequently but I figure a gym membership may offer more classes to get my agility into gear. One of my goals for 2017 is to run another 5k. That will require some training and that’s where the gym comes into play!
Mixing…in a little fun among the packing nightmares. Last Thursday, we invited a few friends out for our last brew before the move. We went to one of our favorite local breweries for a night of beers, catching up and bittersweet goodbyes. We rang in the New Year last night from our couch but staying up past midnight was a celebration in and of itself! The fun helps make this move a little easier to deal with. Anything to take my mind off of stress works!
Humming…The Crown’s theme song. I am watching this Netflix series for the second time and I even got Judd hooked on it. Every episode that this theme plays, I get chills. Great piece of music for an incredible show. I highly recommend watching it!
