I missed last Thursday, so, evidently, Three Things Thursday is not yet a thing. I’ll get there, though. I hope!
1. Starting a business, starting a blog, running a home all while being busier than ever at your real job is very hard. Rewarding, but hard. I’m so tired. And I really hope nothing’s falling through the cracks. Oh yeah, something is…working out. It’s too hot for that anyways?
2. I love to read and go through spurts where I devour book after book relentlessly until I burn out. Then I don’t read for weeks until something piques my interest. I’m craving books right now, but cannot squeeze another minute out of my day. I do, however, sit in my car at least two hours a day which leaves prime time for listening. I can only take so much radio and songs played endlessly. For a while I was listening to Dave Ramsey on iHeartRadio and Jillian Michaels’ podcast on iTunes. Still love them both, but I needed a break. I started listening to Dave Ramsey’s daughter’s book, Smart Money, Smart Kids. I got it free for pre-ordering the hard back. Loved it. Loved listening to it. Then I took a free trial of Audible to listen to The One & Only by Emily Griffin. Now I’m “reading” Nora Roberts’ The Collector. It’s not quite as good as reading the words, but it’s satisfying my need to keep my mind going all. the. time. My main complaint, though, is the expense! I was downloading books from my library through Overdrive last summer and was able to read all summer for free. Audible is $14.95 plus tax for 1 book a month. After I’m finished with this one I have until July before I can get another! I don’t even know what I’m going to do with myself! (Side note, follow me on Goodreads. I’m trying really hard to keep it updated better than I have been.)
3. We’re getting into Texas summer, which means beautifully long, productive days, sunshine, bright blue skies with big fluffy clouds, and heat. I love three of the things listed. Can you guess which ones they are? (My Jeep declared the temperature as 101 when I got in it to leave the real job yesterday afternoon. It wasn’t, I guess my Jeep is preparing me for the days ahead. Bring it, I guess….)
