What Up, What Up my friends?! I’m back today for another #WhatUpWednesday to share with you all the things I’m currently loving in my life!
What I’m Watching
Guys… we found a new show we’re obsessed with. It’s called The Americans! It’s an older show (I think it originally started airing in 2013) with 6 seasons! (My favorite kind of shows to binge have lots of seasons!) It about two KGB agents in the 80s living as Americans. They mix actual historical events with the story line so it makes it feel so real. It is FANTASTIC. If you’re looking for a new show, check it out. You’ll find it on Amazon 🙂
What I’m Thinking About
… the fact that next week is March. I’m still processing last March. I can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that this time last year we were having our last “normal” weekend before we shut down everything and didn’t leave our homes. Like how has that been a year? It feels like everything has changed since then but also it all still feels so the same.
What I’m Working On
My anxiety. It’s been through the roof lately. I think the whole “we’re a year into Covid and life still feels a bit scary” thing is weighing heavy on my heart, along with cabin fever, Seasonal Affective Disorder and just still be really sad and missing my pup. I’ve been working really hard at managing my anxiety and I’ve found two things that have helped me so much the past couple of weeks. I sit by my sun light every day for at least 10 minutes, and I started a course on Headspace that has worked wonders! I picked Handling Sadness. It’s really helped me with techniques to manage my anxious/sad thoughts and it’s training my brain to see my thoughts from a new perspective and then let them go. If you’re someone else that is suffering from anxiety or Seasonal Affective Disorder, I highly recommend Headspace! (I’ve mentioned before how much we adore their sleep casts. We can’t sleep without them now!)
What I’m Reading
I’m still reading The Bridgerton series! I’m on the second to last book, and I’m already getting sad thinking about finishing it! I don’t want it to end. What will I do without The Bridgertons in my life? Find a new series I suppose.
What I’m Listening To
2000s Pop. Reliving my glory days, if you will. 😂 We got 3 free months of SiriusXM when we bought my Jeep and we loved it but couldn’t see paying for it when we already pay for Spotify. Well they sent us another letter for more free months so we figured we’d take ’em! And now I’m obsessed with Pop2K. I literally drive to work singing all my old favorite jams. If you’re about my age, you’ll probably love it too!
What I’m Looking Forward To
Spring! The weather has been gorgeous here the past two days. High 40s and sunny! It’s got me thinking Spring. I can’t wait for sunshine, thunderstorms, flowers, budding trees and being able to be outside again! Oh… and seeing all my baby koi fish that have been hibernating at the bottom of the pond all winter! (And no… our snow isn’t gone. That’s an old picture! But I picked it because I can’t wait to ride around with the windows down again soon.)
What Else Is New
So my loves, What’s Up in your lives?!
Alright guys. I’ve got a glass of milk and some Oreos with my name on them. Are you a twister or a dunker? I’m a dunker. I’ll be back tomorrow!
