Currently : August 2017

Snacking (on) : Coffee and doughnuts and ice cream. Ughhhh. That doesn’t really help my whole “I really want to lose weight” situation. Unfortunately, our new house is about a two minute drive from a combo Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins. I know I’ve mentioned before how one of the employees knows our coffee order. I’ve got to change this habit!

Anticipating : Cooler weather! If I could walk to the mailbox without sweating my face off, that would be fantastic!

Borrowing : DVDs and books from the library I work at. I may or may not have had these checked out since sometime in June. Apologies to anyone who visits my library and wants to read any of my reading challenge books.

Admiring : Anyone who seems like they have their act together right now! I have felt so scatterbrained all summer, and August has arrived a lot more quickly than I anticipated. Suddenly all of these summer projects that I thought I had a lot of time to complete are due RIGHT FLIPPING NOW. I think I’ve just figured out why I’m consuming so much coffee and sugar…

Purchasing : Nothing lately since my debit card has been making it rain with a lot of online shopping lately (“You got another package today. What did you order this time?” – said my husband earlier this week). Also, I might have just gotten a new-to-me car when Will got his new-to-him car to replace his poor wrecked Fiesta. I believe that someone needs to take my debit card…and my Internet…away from me…

    • I always appreciate you commenting on the linkup posts! I know that you have a lot of participants, so it’s really nice that you take the time to do it!

  1. August 1st hit & I am kind of feeling the same way about all those projects & things to do. Where did the summer go!? I need someone to take away my debit card also, haha. My husband will always ask me about transactions on our account & then I have to fess up… woops. 🙂

    • I remember thinking back in May that August seemed soooo far away. So much for that!

      I’m the money person in our house, so my husband just rolls his eyes when I tell him there’s another order coming!

  2. Wow, I like your snack foods!! Love doughnuts. Love them. Worked within a mile of a Krispy Kreme and a Dunkin Doughnuts. Friday was doughnut day. Mmmm.

    I don’t know where the summer went either. I have this exhaustive summer bucket list that I have not made a dent on. I need another July or two Augusts. I have also borrowed a number of the Texas Bluebonnet Reading Program books from my public library. Need to get them read or renewed during my second July!

    I am trying very hard not to buy/purchase right now, too. Since I am not subbing in the summer, I am poorer than usual. And I prefer buying new autumn clothes to summer clothes so I keep telling myself to wait til fall.

    • I’ve started to prefer autumn clothes more as I’ve gotten a little older and fluffier; they’re much more forgiving than summer clothes!

      I think Krispy Kreme is so much better than Dunkin. I would be in serious, serious trouble if I lived close to one of those!

  3. Snacking on: lots of fruit and fresh veggies. Love the summer produce! And I went vegan for the animals and for my health a few weeks ago. I can already see and feel a difference.

    Anticipating: improving my health even more!

    Reading: not much right now. Been too busy.

    Admiring: Me! For getting healthy.

    Buying: Amazon Dot. Best thing I’ve bought in years!

    Love your posts, Amber!

    • Thanks, Michelle! Way to go on the positive and healthy changes! I’ve definitely been on an unhealthy spiral lately, so I admire you too!
