1. this week in reading
Really enjoying this one…just haven’t had as much time to read as I want. Which you wouldn’t think is the case with me being home.
2. New Books I’m excited about
I am so excited about all of these books. Now I just need time to read them.
3. fun thing(s) from the week
Treated myself to a little shopping/retail therapy this week. Have a new Kindle Paperwhite on it’s way today (my other one is several years old and getting super slow…worried it’s about to die soon) and found some fun stuff at Target yesterday (I should just hand over all my money when I go into that store). Also bought myself my first pair of Doc Marten’s and I LOVE them. Only took me 20+ years to get a pair, but better late than never. 😉
4. life happens
When I decided to quit my job, I never imagined another opportunity would come my way so quickly. Especially one so perfect for me. I was asked to be the assistant to the Chairman Emeritus at my previous employer (previous as in two weeks ago..lol). It is a part time role that allows the flexibility I was looking for, including work from home days. I will still get more time with Sunnie, while having a career and doing something I love.
I won’t be returning until the end of February, which gives me a few more weeks to enjoy time at home. But I’m really excited for this new opportunity and change of pace. It will allow me to be more present in my daughters life and be more active in her school functions. Sometimes taking a big risk in life pays off, and I’m grateful this one did.
5. looking ahead
I’m working with a Disney planner for a 4 day trip in a few weeks. We haven’t told Sunnie because we want to surprise her. The look on her face will be priceless.
I get to be a helper in Sunnie’s class on Monday for their 100th day of school. Really looking forward to that. Tomorrow night my parents asked to have Sunnie for a sleepover, so hubby and I plan to go to dinner (I’m thinking at a winery) to finally celebrate my new job and the fact we’re getting a date night. I caught the flu bug the last time we were supposed to have a date night, so it was a bust.
Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!
