The Summer of my Content
It’s been close to three months since I quit working and I feel really good about the successes I’ve achieved this summer. If these accomplishments are any indication of what the rest of my years will be like, then I can look forward to a very fulfilled and satisfied life.
I watched the first four seasons of Scandal in a matter of weeks. We can look at this one of two ways:
- I am able to focus to meet my goal. I am that dedicated; or
- I could have watched all of it in one day, but I didn’t. I am that disciplined.
Either way I come out looking good.
I scored tickets to LIVE with Kelly and Michael for September. (This maybe isn’t such an accomplishment as it was much easier than scoring tickets for the Tonight Show.)
I baked one day.
I read a book. The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. I read it for book club and enjoyed it for the most part. It ended kind of abruptly, but it wasn’t a waste of my time. (I’m really good at book reviews, too.)
I have been able to keep up with the laundry. Mostly.
I hung out with Katie until she left for school yesterday. This included watching the last season of How I Met Your Mother with an impressive determination so we could both move on.
I went out to lunch. A lot.
I started a website – Grace & Such. It will be launching next Tuesday, September 1st. The concept is something that I’ve had on my heart for a long time and I’ve been working on it since January so I’m super excited that it’s finally about to be real. And maybe a little nervous about it, too. I’ll tell you more about it on the 1st, but here’s a little clue.
See what I mean? It’s been a productive and contented summer. Or something like that.
What an accomplisher you are! Love the joy I “hear” in this post.
Yes. I am an accomplisher! 🙂
