January Currently

I'm linking up with Oh' boy 4th Grade for the January Currently linky party! So here we go...
Listening: YES! I let TC (our son) watch a show in the morning while I gather my thoughts and wake my brain to the day. I am *not* a morning person, and this little deal works wonderfully for us. I've blogged about this in the past, and it's part of my way of capturing a moment in the day for myself.

Loving: Yesterday I worked hard at getting the final holiday decorations put away and then I was on a roll! I organized our classroom area, re-designed our classroom wall, purged some unused items and pulled out some new-to-us resources to start school with on Monday. LOVED waking up to everything feeling clean, fresh, and new.

Thinking: I chose a word of the year for myself. This practice has been ALL over the blogosphere this week. I have not participated in past years, but I'm fully embracing it this year. I was motivated by Susannah Conway's Unraveling the Year 2015 workbook. You can download it for free *here*. I loved working through this workbook and choosing my word. I chose the word ACCEPT. I'm going to use this word as a guide throughout the year so that I can remember to accept myself, others, and situations for what they are. I'm going to attempt to stop busying myself with trying to change things that are not within my control. Rather I will accept them for who/what they are. I'm excited about using this word to guide me to a more peaceful place this year!
Wanting: We haven't been to the movies in quite a while. As a matter of fact, I think the last movie I saw in a theater was Maleficent with a dear friend.(OK, so it hasn't been THAT long.) For some reason I've had the movie bug but I'm having a difficult time choosing a movie that feels worth the outrageous ticket prices! These decisions weigh much more heavily on me now that we are a one income family. It's a whole new world.

Needing: So I was "on top" of things and sat down to choose a healthcare plan (and paid for it) before the Jan 1st deadline, but I admittedly need to sit down and really read and come to an understanding of what this new plan means for my family as far as coverage is concerned. I'm not excited about it- and I'm hesitant because I feel like we're being robbed- but that's a whole other blog post!

Yes: I need (er, want) coffee. I haven't been drinking coffee on a daily basis. I've switched it up to hot lemon water first thing in the morning, followed by the occasional cup of coffee purchased outside of the house. I had great intentions for health and financial reasons, but this morning - I MISS my coffee.

Maybe: Grocery shopping. Maybe I will, and maybe I won't. I hate it. I put it off. I probably won't.

I Wish: I had it all figured out. That's all there is to it.
