Happy Coffee Talk Tuesday! Welcome to the weekly chat where I spill my guts and try not to spill my coffee. That would be very sad.
If we were having coffee today, I’d start by telling you that I’m feeling overwhelmed. Traditionally, summer is my time to s-l-o-w down, re-focus, re-energize. I’m still waiting for that to happen. Work has been driving me Nuts (capital ‘N’ for emphasis) and now my personal workouts are suffering as a result. All in my head, but something’s gotta give. And I know I’m the only one who can make that happen.
Over a steamy sip of coconut macaroon coffee (what I’m rocking today), I’d also tell you how I’m amazed at what I’m able to accomplish, even with feeling overwhelmed. I’m kind of the rock star of to-do lists. Should I be proud of that? I have mixed feelings. It’s great to be able to get so many things done, but my days just become to-do lists. And I sort of rush from thing to thing each day, with very little or no margin time. I’m not complaining, just taking a thoughtful approach to my daily routine.
Over coffee today (my, my I’m doing most of the talking) I’d tell you in the same breath that I feel lucky – I have a wonderful husband who takes care of me and our home, makes dinner every night (tasty dinner), and has a family who has welcomed me as one of their own. We were at a birthday party this past weekend for one of the littles, and it was just so nice to be part of something like that, while making future plans with them, too.
Coffee is getting low, but with our last few sips I’d tell you that I impulsively purchased a bicycle (a cruiser) this weekend! I’m very excited to ride around town, bike to work, the whole lot. I haven’t owned my own bicycle since I was a little girl, so this is very thrilling to me. I ordered it online (SHOCKER), so it will come in pieces, but luckily my handy husband loves solving problems and putting things together!
