Monday Moments

Well, this has already turned out to be a doozy of a year! We got back from Florida not much longer than a week ago and since then we've already had so many things happen. 
The main one being the Captain losing his job.
When he told me, I felt like I was having flashbacks to when we were getting married and he lost his job like a week before we got married.
This time we've both felt pretty good about it though. He wasn't really loving where he was working anyway and there have already been a few opportunities popping up. Fingers crossed that one of them pulls through! :)




I tried to get into a car that was identical to mine grocery shopping this week. Luckily I didn't set off any alarms or anything. 




I had some free time to mess around with my watercolors this week. I still feel so cool using tube watercolors... I also feel like I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing ha ha. I should probably look up a tutorial or something. 
On this day I was also thinking about how I used to be such a tidy person. Everything neatly put away (even if there was maybe more clutter than I should have had). These days it's more like this picture, things spilling out everywhere, messes like this one left out to come back to later. I kind of beautiful chaos.
I kind of love it.
I also kind of miss those days when I seemed to be able to put things away.



I have been gotten pretty good at journaling so far this year! I'm hoping to keep it up.  I got this journal from my sweet mother-in-law because she said she saw it and thought of me. I love those kinds of gifts! It was also funny because I later realized that this journal is produced by one of the hand-letterers that I follow on Instagram!




Goals/To-dos:
-Workout/run 5xs this week
-Write 5xs this week
-Plan a cheap stay at home date!
-Go to the Temple with the Captain
-Go grocery shopping/ find a way to eat healthy, and CHEAP
-Do something fun with my days off :)




Currently Read(ing):

Man's Search for Meaning By Viktor Fankl

Good! Not what I was expecting. Much more scientific than I thought, but still good.

Princess of the Silver Woods By Jessica Day George

So far so good!

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet By Jamie Ford

This book is really interesting and good so far! It's about a Chinese boy living in America during the second world war who befriends a Japanese girl. She's taken to an internment camp. It flips between this time and about 40 years later. I would recommend it so far.




Something to take away:

"You are not a drop in the ocean,
You are the entire ocean in a drop."

-Rumi
