Hello!

As I've (sort of) spoken about earlier, this month was ROUGH for me and my family.  I don't want to get into details because I want to respect everyone's privacy, but we had a family emergency mid-month and things were scary and hectic for a little while there.  Everyone is doing well now (Praise God!) and things are starting to feel a little better around these parts, but suffice it to say things have been quite all over the place for me.

But, like I've said before, I flippin' love to do these Taking Stock posts because they really help me focus on all of the amazing, phenomenal, hilarious, awesome, GOOD in my life!

I considered skipping my Taking Stock this month. what with how difficult it was, but I decided that it's important to take the time to reflect, even through the tough stuff, so here we go!...






The Super Bowl was this month (Go Pats!) and Christopher and I spent the evening at his parents' house eating lots of food, watching the game, and going through treasures that Chris' mom had found!  Medals from the "Academic Decathalon" he participated in as a kid and OLD PROM PICTURES!  It was pretty hilarious and fun!  Plus, you know... SPORTS!





I got some awesome friend time this month - I was able to have a hang out day with my friend Michela (and her amazing cat Sausage!) and later in the month my friend Devin and his girlfriend Elizabeth came to NH and I was able to visit with them, too!  I was definitely extra grateful for my friends this month.



I've been working on light/sound board operating a show (which, by a strange twist of fate, Chris had to step in for someone at the last minute, so he's involved too!) and it's been really nice to be back at it!



Alright, now onto the questions...

Making: myself do hard things.
Cooking: honestly? Nothing lately. Christopher spoils me.
Drinking: Diet Cola from our Soda Stream!
Reading: I'm about to get started on the book Stepmonster by Wednesday Martin (blog post forthcoming!)
Wanting: to get back on track with my goals.
Looking: forward to finishing my magazine tonight!
Playing: new music for Jess every day!  So fun!
Wishing: I wasn't so sleepy! Boo :( 
Watching: SO. MUCH. WEST. WING. (And I'm loving it!)
Enjoying: the classic playlist I have on. I listen to this almost every time I write, so it gets me focused pretty quickly at this point, which I love.
Waiting: to take a nice warm bath!
Liking: the warmer weather we've been getting lately (although it is a little disconcerting, I have to admit...)
Wondering: how fast we're going to be able to achieve all of the major goals for our family!
Loving: my cosy comforter and snuggly bed.
Hoping: to have a great upcoming month!
Marveling: at how quickly time goes by sometimes.
Needing: some rest, I think.
Smelling: just Diet Coke? Haha I had a sip a moment ago so that's all I can smell at the moment!
Wearing: pjs and my comforter! Hah!
Noticing: that my socks are still on, which is weird for me!
Knowing: how grateful I am for my family and friends.
Thinking: of how much I want to work on my photography skills (or lack thereof...)
Opening: more books this month, I hope!
Feeling: Stressed. Hopeful. Optimistic. <3 



What about you? How did your February go?  
I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
Hi, I'm Grady! Welcome to my blog :) A little about me? I'm a smitten newlywed and brand-new stepmom living in New Hampshire. My day job is boring on paper but great in real life (just like Dunder Mifflin!), and when I'm not working I love to spend time with my family, perform in or manage productions at the theatre, and eat ice cream while listening to yet another financial management podcast.  I write about my marriage, step-parenthood, and whatever else is going on.  Be sure to follow me on InstagramFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest, and subscribe to my blog!
