Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021? And here's what I came up with: On celebrating my special day: COVID birthdays aren't so bad as an adult. Sure they suck shit for kids (can't have a party, can't see their family and friends, hardly any presents because said parties are a no-no). But for me, as an adult, I understand why I can't party it up with like 50 of my closest friends and family members. I understand that a Vegas trip is out of the questi

Currently: COVID-19 Edition


CURRENTLY on my mind...

Feeling: A little bit anxious, a little bit like I need to get on the treadmill to get my butt moving, and a little overwhelmed with being cooped up in the house. We are on day 31 of quarantine/self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cooking: For lunch I'm warming up leftovers from our Easter dinner (chicken cutlets and rice). Tonight it's pasta with homemade sauce.

Drinking: Copious amounts of coffee...and wine...because we're in self-quarantine and let's face it....the only way to survive this with kids is to drink caffeine and wine. 

Eating: ALL THE THINGS. Kidding. Still munching on the the kids Easter chocolates and trying to supplement it with healthy Weight Watchers (WW) friendly eats. 

Reading: I just bought What Happens Now? by Sophia Money-Coutts. I haven't started it yet technically but I plan to this week! 

Wasting: Time! I'm such a procrastinator!!! Also spring mix lettuce. Am I the only one who buys a box and then just let's it sit in the fridge until it's rotten and time to buy a new one? Rinse and repeat.

Wishing: That the COVID-19 pandemic was over so we could get out of quarantine/self-isolation and get back to normal. Not only do I want everyone healthy and thriving but I'm not going to lie...I miss Winners and Home Sense :( 

Wearing: PJ's and comfy lounge wear. All day. Every day.

Procrastinating: Working out and cleaning the house. HELP ME!!!
