Happy Halloween! Are you dressing up today? I am not. I’m really not a fan of Halloween, and only ever bothered dressing up if it meant I didn’t need to wear a work uniform. However, I do like this day because it’s the anniversary of my first date with my husband! 9 years ago today we met in person for the first time at Starbucks, and we try to get coffee on the anniversary every year so there’s a good chance you’ll find me at a Starbucks tonight.
I don’t really have anything to talk about today health-wise. I’ve been really busy and haven’t had a chance to think deeply enough to come up with a blog post, so keep let’s things light and chat. 🙂
I have been super busy keeping up with my NTC program. It feels overwhelming at times, but I keep reminding myself that it’s just the beginning and I’m not supposed to know everything right away. I also got a promotion at my office job, so that’s going to be exciting and new and a little scary because all new things are scary at first, right?
Our little community church closed last month and we’ve been struggling to find a new one that feels like home. I’m not really interested in church hopping without the hubby right now, so on the Sundays that he has to work I end up staying home and listening to a sermon online instead. Is there an appropriate grieving period for losing a church? I think it should be at least 1-2 months.
The holidays are COMING! and I’m so not ready for all the shopping and list making, but I am ready for the fun and delicious food! I’m also looking forward to decorating the house for Christmas. Christmas decorations make the house feel cozy (some may call it cramped) so we usually put those up right after Thanksgiving and leave them up until the second week of January because my husband’s family is Ukranian Orthodox and that means we get a second Christmas in early January! (hello, run on sentence!)
I’m pretty sure I need to take a break from sugar. I’ve been getting a lot of headaches and not sleeping very well, so it’s time to tighten up my diet again so I can start feeling better! The biggest changes have been more processed foods (sugar+gluten) and dairy, so I’ll probably take a break from those for a few weeks and see how I feel. It will also (hopefully) help with my current plateau, which I’ll talk more about on Friday when I review October’s progress.
Saturday is my 5th wedding anniversary! Hubster has to work (he really really tried to get out of it, but no luck) so we’ll celebrate on Sunday instead. It feels like we’ve been married forever, but also like the wedding was yesterday. Isn’t time weird? I’m so grateful for everything we’ve been through so far and how we’re growing together, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next 5 years!
Ok, enough about me. How are you doing? Are you excited for the holidays too or am I just a weirdo? Are the any exciting things happening in your life right now? Leave a comment and catch me up on your life! 🙂
