Coffee Date Thoughts

Happy Tuesday! I've had a lot on my mind recently so I thought I'd share those thoughts with you today as if we were on a coffee date.

If we were having coffee, here's what I'd talk about...


Today I had an early release at work so I had to get into the office by 7. (Yes I am writing this paragraph at work after that early release. We're allowed breaks). Surprisingly it was easy to get up an hour earlier than usual (though lets be honest, it was more like an hour and a half earlier than usual. I have a problem with over sleeping). It was nice to spend the morning with Pearson (he gets up that early almost every day). And it was even kinda nice to get to work before everyone else while it was still dark outside. And as a bonus, the release went off without a hitch. The whole thing was kinda nice, but I know I couldn't do that every day.

At the beginning of this election (or at least once we had our nominees), I thought a vote for Gary Johnson would be "a vote for Hilary Clinton." Now it seems that a vote for Johnson would actually be more of a vote for Trump than Clinton. And it almost makes me not want to do it. Almost.

Just because I'm a woman doesn't mean that Benedict Cumberbatch is the only reason I'm excited for the Dr. Strange movie. Ugh. I like super heros and Marvel and SciFi too. I care about more than the male actors in those kind of movies. And furthermore, I don't even think Benedict is that attractive. He's a great actor, sure. But he's kinda weird looking.

I'm going to be super busy for the next few months. In fact, every weekend from here to the end of the year is booked solid. I am super excited about this for many reasons. One being that I think being busy again will seriously help my depression and make me happy again. It's the most wonderful time of the year. On a related note, I'm already dreading January and February when everything dies down and it's below zero outside with snow everywhere.

I'm not sure where all our money has been going recently. Nor do I know how we will afford everything we have going on in the next few months. I'm not too worried about it though. I think it will work out. Side note, I got an unexpected check in the mail last week from my orthopedist from back when I had tendinitis in my elbow. Thanks, God!

I am hooked on When Calls the Heart. It's a series on Hallmark Channel staring Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky from Full House) about a small, western coal mining town in the 1910. The first two seasons are on Netflix. I'll admit, it's not the best quality show. It is Hallmark Channel, after all. But I can't get it out of my head!

I'm going to be playing Cinderella in Worthington Community Theatre's production of A Fairy Tail Christmas Carol and I am so excited! Rehearsals start October 24th and the performance dates are December 9th at 7:30, December 10th at 2:00 and 7:30, and December 11th at 2:00.

I am so tired of my news feeds being filled with political stuff. I can't wait for this election to be over.

I've been wearing sweaters non-stop for about a week now. It's the most wonderful time of the year.

I feel myself getting annoyed when my coworkers eating and drinking too loud. I knew there was a reason I should work from home.

I've been journaling more lately. It's truly amazing how I always feel so much better when I journal. I used to journal all the time. I have several journals filled from my college days. But somehow I've gotten away from it. I need to keep it up.

Why is fast food so yummy? I keep ruining my healthy eating habits. Ugh. Wendy's. Taco Bell. It's always calling my name! I know if I stay away from it for a while, I'll stop craving it. But it's hard to get to that point. Plus it's just so convenient.

Also, why is it so difficult to stay on top of my reading goals? I have all these plans to read and then I end up watching TV all evening. Also, I'll sit down to read and then pick up my phone. An hour later I find myself down the rabbit hole of Instagram and it's time to go somewhere or start dinner or whatever and I haven't cracked my book. Sigh.

So those things are what I would talk about on our coffee date. What would you talk about? Thanks for letting me spill these thoughts. And thanks for being such wonderful readers!
