It's September already??

Good grief. Where does the time go? August flew by, school has started, I've slacked off with blogging, creating, etc. b/c I've been so exhausted all I've wanted to do is sit and not think about anything!! Anyone else been like this?? 

But now it's September---here's to hoping the humidity here in NC slacks off some. Goodness, you would think it's July as hot as it is. And it's almost time for the fair (yikes---field trip with the kiddos!), apples, and hopefully some cooler weather, and of course Currently!! Link up with Farley with your currently!


It's so quiet around the house---no tv on, no music, the dog is sleeping, and the hubs is at work (boo!) and I finally decided it's time to work on school stuff. See how much I'm getting done right?? LOL

I'm loving that I was able to spend some time with the hubs this you can see on Wanting that I'm wanting him to find a new job. He's working like a dog right now, no days off except Sunday's and he's exhausted. He's job hunting and has applied to a ton of places, just praying and waiting faithfully that something opens up. 

So I skipped thinking b/c well it tires me out! I've got so much to do and hoping I can get it all done today so that the rest of the week won't be so hectic. First week of all students after a three day weekend can be crazy!!!

I don't really need anything right now but I definitely need to start planning out my days for blogging, creating, school work, etc. I'm not going to work myself to death just because. I have to take time to relax and do stuff for me and not spend all my time in front of this computer. 

I love to read and I need to get back on that and of course spend more time on devotions in the morning. I'll get into a good routine and then slack off...I've got to be able to do this every day no matter what.

Hope you enjoy your day off and relax!!!!!


  1. Nicki, love your new(ish) design! I know you've had it for a bit, but it turned out fabulous! Keep faith - he'll find a job in time and it will be the right fit! Glad you had a great weekend! I plan to devote more time to reading this school year too. Although, I think I say that every year and a pile of books gathers dust in the corner until June :) Have a great day off!

    1. Thanks! I love it too!! I'm hoping to at least read one book a month (usually it's like 3-4) but I'm aiming low right now! :)

  2. Hey Nicki,
    Found your blog through the linky. I think forming a plan for blogging, school, and creating is a great idea! I am going to give that a try myself. Enjoy your day!

    1. Thanks for stopping by!! Yes a plan is if I can only act on it! :) Let me know if you try it too!

  3. Why is it so hard for us to take a day off?! I'm always thinking about what I need to be doing next. A teacher's job is never done! Hope you enjoy they day off!

    1. I don't know...I think our minds never stop thinking about what can be done next or what needs to be done!

  4. Taking time away is so important...I need to make that a goal of mine, too :)
