I completely forgot all about this month. I don’t know why, because it’s my BIRTHDAY month! I am so excited for my birthday this year. Which normally isn’t the case. Plus, I have been working a lot of overtime at my full time job recently. I am trying to work as much OT as I can because I don’t know when it will be over. Also I am on medicine for my ADHD and depression, and that either makes me hyper focused or nothing at all. I’m still trying to get use to the side effects.
We purchased our first home back in January. It has been so much fun making it ours. We have only been here 5 months but we have done so much to the yard. (By we, I am mean my husband) The front yard had all these plants and weeds. One Saturday, we (yes, both of us) went and cleared it all out. We filled 5 garbage bags full. The backyard is coming along too. Along the side of the fence were these flower boxes, but they weren’t taken care of at all. We torn it down, and been using the wood for our fire pit.
The inside is about the same as when we bought the house. We are waiting until the offseason to have a contractor come and take a look at what we can do. There is attic space that we would love to turn into a master bedroom or open space. We have a closet in the living room that is so massive. We also need to add closet space because it’s practically nonexistent. We have so many ideas, but not sure if they can actually happen. And the cost to change some of this stuff. I had my office in order, but we redid the layout. My office is now the guest bedroom. The spare room upstairs will now be my office after we paint it later this month.
True talk here! I am having a hard time adapting to my new medicine. Since I started my new job, I was able to finally get on insurance which meant I could start getting help on some mental health things. Some times I am super focused and times I am still so scatterbrained. The side effects have been hit and miss. I am happy that I am now finally able to get medicine and help for things that have been bothering me for a while.
I have noticed a difference in myself with taking them so that is good. The downfall has been I haven’t been too good on taking them the same time everyday. I forgot my morning medicine at home so I didn’t take them for a few days.
For my birthday, I am going to Chicago. Believe it or not, I have NEVER been to Chicago. All of the time I have lived in the Midwest and I have never been to Chicago. I am so excited but also really nervous because what if I hyped all this up and it sucks. For my birthday, I am going to the Museum of Ice Cream. It is hoping on my birthday. It’s like my own version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or Willy Wonka whichever you prefer. I love them both!! I hope that I didn’t overhype it in my head. I doubt it. We went to the one in San Francisco and had a blast, so I can’t imagine that it’s any different.
While I am in Chicago, I want to only wear Zyia. I became a rep almost a year ago. (September will mark 1 year, I believe.) So I have been picking out things for the past month that I want to wear for the weekend. Plus that I would wear year round. I can’t decide if I want to wear pink and blend it or blue to make it pop. I need to order soon or else it won’t be here for my birthday.
MacBook Air. I have been wanting (and needing) a new computer for a while. We had a Chromebook that kept lagging as I typed and it was super annoying. I did my research and settled on a MacBook Air. I initially wanted the pro with lots of storage, but the more I thought about it the air fit everything I needed. As much as I think I need storage, I really don’t because even on my phone I don’t use a lot of it. I am also shocked when I look at how much storage I have used. Plus by getting one with less storage, I was able to get the mouse and bag with it.
Next month for the currently series will be recap of my birthday in Chicago. It’s crazy to me how hyped I am for my birthday because I am not usually like this. I don’t really talk about it at all. It’s just another day. And it’s not even a big birthday – I’m turning 39.
