Taking Stock: April 2018

I’ve decided to do this “taking stock” post that I found here… at the end of each month.   Please don’t think I have jumped off the deep end.  Some of my answers are pretty raw and sound hopeless but I know who has me in His hands! 🙂

Cooking: with the new air fryer.
Drinking: more water with the encouragement of my husband.
Trawling: Ticketmaster for spring and fall concerts to attend.
Wanting: the temperature to change.
Looking: forward to boating in the sun!
Deciding: to trade our mower in on a newer one.
Wishing: Jeremy would get it together.
Enjoying: connecting with old friends.
Waiting: for the ground to warm up so I can plant a few things.
Liking: my little garden plan.
Wondering: If we will ever get to get our bikes out of the garage.
Loving: my kids!
Considering: kayaks
Buying: picture reprints/copies.
Watching: Street Outlaw
Hoping: this racing bug doesn’t bite my husband!
Marveling: at the slowness of spring!
Cringing: Got the furnace repair bill…
Needing: more sleep!
Noticing: more green!
Knowing: that my gym time is starting to pay off
Thinking: I should have been more dedicated to the gym sooner.
Admiring: the green!
Getting: caught up around the house more each week!
Opening: Villette by Charlotte Bronte
Closing: Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie
Feeling: the affects of the GREAT workouts I’ve been doing the past couple of weeks
Dreaming: of winning the lotery
Hearing: hubby getting ready for a pub crawl we are doing on our friends birthday today!
Celebrating: a good friends birthday today!
Pretending: that retirement is only next year. (lots to prepare for)
Embracing: LIFE

    Oh oh…what’s up with Jeremy??? I often dream of winning the lottery, then, that might just bring larger problems, you know? Like, where would we hide? How much protection would we need and so on…and oh hiding the money from certain folks, lol.

      He’s struggling with his classes and they are looking to move him to an new mos yet. We knew college was not for him because he isn’t self motivated or a self starter. Without us there to force him to study I’m sure he isn’t.

        hmm…it has be a boy thing, same here, Monica…sad to say. sigh—he does know that they will kick him out if he doesn’t straighten up, right???? I certainty wouldn’t want that on my record…I know…just be quiet and let him make the decisions, right?

        I really think he would be alright with getting kicked out! I really thought by now though they would evalute him for another MOS. They’ve already spent so much money on him (training, keep, etc.) that I thought that would be considered. He’s not being a “bad” kid or anything… just unmotivated because he doesn’t like the job… {{sigh}} yep, I have cut the apron strings with all the kids… Sink or swim I say.

    I’m sorry to hear of Jeremy’s struggles. Hope he can get motivated to do what he needs to do. I just ordered the audiobook of Villette this week. I need to get back to the gym or at least some kind of workout. It’s hard to figure out the best time for it in our current situation.
