What’s Up Wednesdays #10 (On a Thursday?)

Good morning all.  How was your Wednesday?  Most of you may have noticed that I did not post my regular “What’s Up Wednesdays” post yesterday.  Yesterday, was a really long day and by the time I got home from running all of my errands I was just too tired. I know it’s a day late but I’ll get you up to speed. 😉

What I’m eating this week:

For dinner last night, we ate out since we were already out and hungry so I had BBQ ribs with fries and cole slaw.  After a long day I decided I needed to eat something nice.

Sorry no pictures of my dinner last night but I included a lovely picture from Pixabay. 🙂 I will tell you this their ribs cannot compare to the soft, succulent ribs that Ruby Tuesday would prepare but a girl’s gotta eat. 🙂

What I’m reminiscing about: 

The simple life! Days when I did not have so many things to do.  Almost everyday I have something that requires my attention so I have to be constantly on the go.  I look forward to slowly down and just relaxing.

What I’m loving:

My life and my family!  We have faced various obstacles over the years but we stuck together, never gave up and kept trusting and believing God to bring us through it all.  I pray and ask God to continue to bless us, protect us and grant us his favour in every single area of our lives from the eldest member of my family to the youngest.

What I’ve been up to:

I’ve been all over the place getting quotes, viewing tiles and all sorts of other home improvement products.  Driving around from place to place in itself feels like exercise leaving me at the end of the day mentally and physically exhausted.

What I’m dreading:

Not being able to accomplish the goals we’ve set for the vacation period.

What I’m working on:

Juggling my time and resources.  For many of us this is a constant struggle as we try to find a balance between the two.

What I’m excited about:

What I’m watching:

Honestly, I’ve just been too tired to sit down and really enjoy television. One show I do remember watching recently was on Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) called ‘The Other Mother‘.  The show was about a divorcee who was surprised to learn her ex-husband remarried a younger woman; and even more surprised to learn of the dark and treacherous past of his new wife.

LMN is not a channel I watch too often because their movies tend to get me all worked up emotionally. This movie was no different.  They know how to stir up emotions I’ll give them that. 🙂  What have you been watching?

Who/ What I’m listening to:

Wild Thoughts – by DJ Khaled featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller

What I’m wearing/ Let’s Go Shopping:

Yesterday, I was looking at home furnishings so we’ll go shopping for some. I’ve always seen Wayfair commercials on television and just love the possibilities. Here are a few of my favourites.

What I’m doing this weekend:

I wish I could say kicking back and watching some television but I have more stuff to get organised this weekend.  I will be doing some painting around the house.  I actually enjoy painting because I love seeing the transformation of the space I’m working on.

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

Next month is my birth month September 🙂.  My birthday is on September 4th. I’m definitely looking forward to waking up on that special day and thanking God for allowing me to see another year.  Although I’m already grateful for everyday I get. 🙂

I’ve put it off for some time now mostly because I usually focus on the kids and whatever is left I try to get stuff for me.  This unfortunately does not always work out.  Thankfully, this time we all got what we wanted (mummy included).   I committed to the process and followed through with it. Yayyy!! 🙂

That’s all for now.  Make the rest of this week a great one!

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
