Posted in Currently


Hello! Well, we survived the first day back to school in 2022. Once I got over the shock of my alarm going off in the 6’s, it was good to get up and back into a routine.

I feel like I haven’t written a Currently post in forever, so today I’m linking up with Anne for her monthly post.

I’m currently…


The first thing that came to mind was just anticipating a fresh start to the new year. January always provides a much needed reset for all the things: mind, body, spirit, schedule, diet, bank account and more.



My life. The house. and More 😂 Just getting back into a routine, getting appointments and activities written on the calendar, planning meals and just organizing life is something that takes some time once we start the new year.

I’ve mentioned before that I decorated for Christmas kind of late…which apparently means that I take down the decorations later! haha My house was kind of a mess leading up to the end of break, but I think most everything is now put away. That being said, I haven’t put all my regular decor back out because I feel like the house needs a minute to breathe.


I finished Katie Couric’s book on Monday. It’s pretty long but with tons of short chapters which made it a quick read. I found it to be really interesting.

I started The Royals Next Door on my Kindle over the weekend, and I think I’m going to like it. It has a very Meghan/Harry come to America vibe.


to clean(er) eating, drinking more water, and working out at least four days a week. While I don’t feel like the wheels totally fell off the bus between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, it’s time to get focused again.

Here are my January goals:

**January 14th is my birthday, so I assume I may consume a piece of cake that day! Just trying to be realistic 😉


all the things. Appointments, practices, grocery pick up, workouts, to do lists and more.

  • I need to schedule an eye exam for myself and Hadley, and the kids have ortho and dental cleaning appointments on the books already.
  • Hayden has a new basketball schedule and Hadley’s school dance practices have shifted, so I just need to get used to those times.
  • I want to start picking up groceries on Saturday instead of Sunday to make weekly meal prep easier.
  • When I’m in a good groove, I don’t need to do it, but I’m even scheduling my day to include workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
  • Lastly, some weeks are so hectic, I need to schedule in errands and other things I need to do.

What about you? What are you anticipating, organizing, reading, resolving, and scheduling?

See you back here later this week for the first Friday Favorites of 2022.

  1. Sounds like a good plan! I am still not in a routine because boys are still here. They go back tonight and then I will settle in a bit more. I think you will like grocery pick up on Saturday but I love it on Friday immediately after school, too! I still probably eat out one or both nights but I love splitting prep into two days sometimes. I did target pick up for toiletries and it was amazing!
    Have a great rest of the week!

      1. Good point. I usually have a full phone memo of what I want to make the next week and then order my groceries on Wednesday or Thursday. I am pretty much always thinking about my next meal! Lol!

  2. I’m reading Katie Couric’s book now! So far, I really like it. Your post reminded me that I need to get back into grocery delivery planning.

  4. I decorated super late too. Not until Winter Break happened though. I will probably take everything down on the 17th. Thank goodness for surviving the first day back to school! I had almost a 1/3 of my classes absent because it was so cold outside. Thank goodness for Google Classrooms.
