This is my life right now. The issues I’ve been dealing with are finally coming to a head and while I’m dealing with it all, I’m working to calm all of the anxiety that comes with dealing with the issues. It’s like trying to bale all the water out of a sinking boat with a plastic spork.
I’m honestly trying not to drown in emotion and ruin all good things going for me right now, but the fears and frustrations are causing some mean knee-jerk reactions that are hurting people I care about. I’m devising some strategies to deal with my worrying and giving them about a week’s trial before I decided to post them here…we’ll see how that goes.
Back to your regularly scheduled blog…
My new favorite weekend hobby has become laying on the outdoor swing with a good book. I’ve been on super-budget mode, and while I can’t do too much right now, but I’m getting a lot of enjoyment out of relaxing in the sun.
It’s kind of a relief to be able to take some time to relax, since I didn’t have a space to do that in my last living situation. Living with the Riley fam has been a blast, and I’m grateful for them opening their home to me.
Next weekend I’m going to be working on starting the garden, so I’ll (attempt) to grow fresh vegetables for my roommates and me. I’m even going to show off my awesome farmer hat! (Haha!)
I’m also working on getting back into my workout routine, since I picked up some home-gym equipment last weekend.
Living in the desert has been quite a challenge, as being an hour away from work, school and home (Rancho) has taken a LOT of adjusting to. I’ve been trying to fit in workouts, friends, family, this blog, homework, laundry sleep and a new relationship while figuring out how to stay organized and on top of my finances. It took about a month of hectic schedules and stress, but things are starting to smooth out.
I also did a little bit of hiking last week on Baldy to clear my head.
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of hiking and the outdoors. ❤
So, that’s my weekend so far. I’m trying to get pictures up of Rachel’s wedding, which was a TON of fun, but my phone for some reason wants to keep the pictures locked away in internet land. (*tears!*) So, coming soon.
Also, more updates to come!
