Life Lately: Volume 74

Well I am finally coming back to life today after a week of feeling like a dumpster fire. I finally went to the doctor on Tuesday and found out I have a double ear infection (yes, like a toddler) which was why my head was throbbing for the last two weeks. My bad, I definitely should have gone earlier.

She told me I really had to rest to get better because it had been days and days and I was having trouble even standing up I was so exhausted. So I spent the majority of the last two days in bed which is my actual nightmare, but it was worth it because the fog has broken and I’m upright again!

That said, I was bored out of my mind and I think I just hate relaxing? Unless it’s on a beach, of course. The one win was finally watching Don’t Worry Darling, which I loved.

I’m excited to finally get out of the house this weekend and might even take a social media break because I overdid it on my scrolling for sure.

The decluttering is going well! I sold a bunch of items on Poshmark and Facebook marketplace, and went through my jewelry. This weekend and next week I’m making lists to complete one project per day.  It’s so interesting how once I changed my mindset I was able to see clutter in so many places.

For example, my make up bag had a concealer in it that I hadn’t used in over a year. Why was that still there? No reason! Once I cleaned out all the items like that, it make opening the bag so much more enjoyable.

Have a great weekend!

The podcast that helped solve a murder. If you obsessively listened to Your Own Back Yard then followed the trial afterwards, read this article about Chris Lambert, the incredible man who helped crack the case. And if you haven’t listened to the podcast, I highly recommend it!

This gorgeous Anthropologie desk (with filing cabinets) is replacing my current desk and filing cabinet to free up space and declutter my office. Although I planned this poorly because I sold the desk and cabinet and have to wait for the new one to arrive. I’ll be working from the dining room until further notice!
