Well hey friends! Don’t mind me while I fall off the planet and completely abandon the blog for 3 days! Yikes! Life caught up to me, and this week has been crazy. This won’t be a very long post, because I’m squeezing it in before work. But, I wanted to catch you up on what’s been going on over on my side of the world.
First, I wanted to share this with you, because it brightened my day.
If that doesn’t make you “lawl”, you obviously weren’t as cool as I was.
Last night we had some friends of ours over for a little “barter” night. Adam has been having this weird knee pain, and our friend Jessica is a PT. So, we cleverly offered to make she and her husband dinner in exchange for an impromtu knee exam in our living room. Ha. What a deal. For dinner, since we’re on an even tighter budget this pay period from paying off one of our loans in full recently (whoop whoop!), we made turkey and cheese sandwiches on Hawaiian King Rolls, with a side of fresh strawberries and blueberries. Easy, cheap, light, and delicious. I rememberd my M.O.H. made something like this for my lingerie shower and I remembered how amaing they were, so when Adam suggested just making little sandwiches, I told him about this recipe. I was a bad blogger and didn’t take any pictures, but just take a look at this mouth watering picture and you can imagine what they looked like. He added a light layer of mustard, and toasted them in the oven just long enough for the cheese to melt. And to get more bang for our buck, we left the tops off, thus doubleing the “recipe.” Is making sandwiches even considered a recipe? Most definitely.
The extent of my workouts this week have been walking the dog. I’m always so good about squeezing in a run, but lately I feel like my head has been in 1,000 difference places at once and it’s been all I can do to just to get the dog outside for a 1-2 mile stroll. Ever have weeks like that? I’m counting down the hours until this one is over. Boo.
I think my main problem right now is feeling like I’m not happy in what I’m doing, and at the same time I know the steps I need to take in order to do what will make me happy, but things like time and money are always the hangups. I know that sounds vague, and like every other person in the world isn’t already thinking that, but I promise there really is more to it I just don’t want to post the “deets yo.”
The long and short of it is this: up until about a week ago I thought I had come to peace with a decision, and was going to go for it, then, a major wrench was thrown in my plans, a wrench that I’m grateful for but don’t really don’t want, and now I’m not sure what to do or where to go from here. Well, I know what my heart wants to do, but logically it might not be the BEST idea right now. Hmmph. Being a grown up can be tough.
Especially when it comes down to your career.
Any words of advice for following your heart versus being realisitc are welcomed. My mom always says that life is too short to be miserable, and I have too many things to offer that I shouldn’t let those things go to waste. But, bills must be paid.
Too vague? Maybe. Catch my drift? Hope so.
I really am struggeling alot lately with the whole concept of being CONTENT. I am so, so blessed, and sometimes I feel like I should slap myself silly for even thinking certain thoughts. Why do those thoughts even enter my mind??
I always try to remind myself that Paul learned the same lesson, and went through a much greater trial. Who am I to even THINK about not being content with my life?
“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” – Philippians 4:11-12
Alright friends, over and out. I’m off to demolish the Diet Coke supply.
