Monday, Monday here we go! I’d love to say that I’m feeling super marvelous about Monday this week, but I’m finding it a little bit hard. This is what we’re facing here in Wisconsin…

Sadly, the windchills are actually going to get WORSE than this in the next couple days. I’ve heard close to -50 degrees windchill temperature! Whaaa?!?
So I am trying to keep my spirits up, but man it is hard! So I suppose this is a good time to try and focus on the marvelous things…thank you Katie for always helping us to remember to see the positives!
So as I talked about in my last post, I haven’t been feeling that well lately. Some days have been absolutely miserable for me, some moments in the day have been worse than others. But I’ve also had moments where I’ve felt pretty good, too. I’ve been loving those moments. It truly makes me appreciate the importance of feeling good and healthy. Any time I feel good, I am so thankful. I’ve been able to enjoy some fun times lately, too.
This was the gorgeous sunset after work on Friday. (I actually pulled over a few different times on the drive home to take some pictures!)
Friday night, Scott’s mom hosted an Orange Bowl party at her place. Scott invited a bunch of his co-workers over to watch the game. It was a big game that Scott (and I) both cared about since Clemson was playing! It was such a good game. They were neck-in-neck with Ohio State for the duration of the whole game. The last few minutes of the game were amazing and an interception with about a minute and a half left on the clock by Clemson sealed the deal. We won!!!! 40 to 35!!!!
That got the weekend off to a great start! We were both super excited about our win. Saturday morning was a nice lazy start to the day. I did some yoga in the morning, too. Since I’ve been feeling so crummy lately, I haven’t been working out at all. It’s the last thing that I feel like doing. But I did yoga on Thursday, and then again on Saturday. It was the first time in a LONG time that I’d done yoga. I quickly remembered just how much I love it. It’s sad that I let it get trumped by more “intensive” workouts, since it was something I truly enjoyed and felt to be therapeutic for me. But, I’m actually glad that I’ve gravitated back to it (although it wasn’t necessarily by choice). Yet I’m happy about it. I feel absolutely amazing afterward. So I definitely want to keep working on yoga, especially while I am unable to do anything more physical/active right now.
After a slow, relaxing morning, it was time to meet up with my brother, his wife, and some of his friends. We made plans to head to the zoo for their family free day. The weather was actually “warm” around 30, so we wanted to make use of the decent weather before it got bitter cold in the coming days. It was a really nice time!
I’ve only been around Travis and Jessa’s friends, Peter and Faith, one other time, which was at my brother’s wedding. But seriously, that guy is the most hilarious person ever. I was laughing like crazy the whole time. Too funny!
I had a really fun time with them. It was definitely a good time to go and get my mind off things, especially because I was actually feeling pretty good, too! So I could actually really enjoy myself fully. That was really rewarding. I came home and relaxed a bit, catching up on some emails, etc. This has been happening A LOT lately…
Dexter LOVES to plop himself down right on me when I’m working on the laptop. And I’m not saying just my lap, he will literally sit right on my arms if I’m typing. Since he’s a bit of a chubby cat, my arms would literally fall asleep if he sits there too long, so I always have to pull my arms out from under him and do my best to type OVER him. It’s absolutely impossible for me to get frustrated with him, even if it is a bit inconvenient when I’m trying to work on something. It definitely makes me feel loved knowing he wants to snuggle with me. 🙂 Plus, look at that face…how could I ever get upset with him?! I love that cat more than anything.
At church Sunday, Scott did something absolutely adorable. It’s things like this that I absolutely love. It’s something so small and simple, but it shows me that he’s thinking about me. He asked for my hand and slipped a little folded up piece of paper under my wedding ring. He wrote me a little note 🙂
It’s kind of an inside joke of ours. When we weren’t saying ‘i love you’ to each other, we’d say ‘i’m pretty fond of you’. It was kind of our cute little way of saying we really liked each other, but weren’t at the point where we wanted to say i love you yet. So this note was adorable, because now we are both saying I love you to each other. After all that we’ve been through in the past few months, hearing him tell me (or reading it) that he loves me, means so much to me. 🙂
The end of my weekend consists of watching the Packers game and Breaking Bad. Scott and I are finally on the last season 😦 It’s a bittersweet feeling. I’m excited to see how it ends, but then I’m also sad to see that it’s coming to an end, too. What an awesome show!!!
Hope you all had a marvelous weekend and have a great Monday! ❤
