Is everyone else binge watching Friends on Netflix? I’m pretty sure all of you are, because my Facebook and Snapchat feed are absolutely loaded with people yapping about it. I started from season one and am obsessed. I watch it while I clean out my Pinterest boards, while I cook, while I clean, basically its only from 2:00 on every day.
Usually I’m so excited about awards season. But this year, I could careless. After watching the most boring globes of all time, and realizing that all the movies last year were mediocre at best, I think I’ll just stick to watching the red carpet.
Have you seen Whiplash? My husband and I watched it a few weeks ago, and it’s easily one of the most inspiring movies I’ve ever seen. It’s gut wrenching for sure. Basically its about a guy who gets into a prestigious music school, and gets accepted into a cut-throat program, and has to deal with a teacher who will push him far beyond his limit and practically rip him in two, to make him better. The entire movie was heart breaking but, gosh, SO inspirational to just be better than you are, and do better. I definitely recommend it.
I’ve been decluttering and organizing my house one closet, room, and corner at a time. We spent almost the entire day last Saturday doing this to the kids playroom, which is one of the biggest things we had to tackle, and we’re still not finished. But my house is getting cleaned out and I love it. We’ve already made three trips to goodwill. I swear Ive gotten rid of more of my clothes this month than any other closet clean out Ive done in the past. Its refreshing. I love it.
I feel like by now, I should have gotten back into the gym, I mean, we are nearing the end of January here, but I just haven’t had the motivation. Do I regret the pounds I packed on in the last few months? of course. But apparently not enough to do something about it. yet. I know for a fact, that regardless of how many people in my social media feeds are working out or motivational quotes I see, until I’m good and ready, it just ain’t gonna happen.
I’m getting glasses. Ive had perfect eyesight foreverrrr. In the last year, I can hardly see road signs until I’m right on top of them, and you can forget watching tv at night. Its all a little fuzzy. I actually have to go pick them up today. I should have cared a little more about what they looked like, but I didn’t. So I let my husband choose, and he chose a mens pair. Maybe if Im brave enough, Ill share a pic on Instagram later. Don’t hold you breath.
Ive been reading loads this year already. Maybe that’s why my posts are here have been somewhat sporadic. But I can’t help it, I love reading. Growing up, I would plow through book after book for hours and days on end. I loved it. Somewhere along the way, boys, clothes, makeup and partying took center stage and I lost it for about ten years. Since my husband surprised my with an iPad last spring, I haven’t been able to stop. I hit my reading challenge of just over 100 books in 2014. Im aiming for something similar this year, though maybe a little less. life..balance and all that?
I feel like I just bring up the Patriots media scandal since we’re huge Pats fans, but I kind of can’t talk about it. We live in a disgusting world with sore losers, a 24 hour news cycle, and people who are bored. If it was any other team, it would be absolutely no big deal. Whatever, haters gonna hate…
