BottlebrushI realize that I am probably one of the last humans on the planet that waited so long to watch Stranger Things. In my defense, I do not have much time to watch television, and there are few shows that I watch alone in real time or with Andrew. He is just as busy during the school year as I am, so coordinating our schedules to watch a couple of hours of television together can be difficult. However, we manage to squeeze in some time here and there for our favorite shows. Andrew and I had finished watching Parks and Recreation during Mardi Gras break, so we decided to start watching Stranger Things. Many of my friends, family, acquaintances, and even some of my students encouraged me to watch it since they thought it would be a show that I would really enjoy. Boy, were they right. Stranger Things is SUPER awesome! I’m obsessed with it. I absolutely LOVE that it takes place in the 1980s. The show is basically about a group of geeky kids who meet an unusual girl with special abilities around the same time that one of their friends vanishes into a mysterious place that is home to a disturbing creature. It is like the X-Files meets the Goonies. The seasons are not very long, so we blew through both of them within a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, the next season does not come out until 2019. Alas, Andrew and I will just have to watch Beyond Stranger Things which delves into the secrets of the Stranger Things universe, specifically Season 2 and re-watch the two seasons prior to Season 3 premiering next year.

In other news…spring has sprung! I have been enjoying the extended daylight in the evenings. Unfortunately,  I only walked on Monday during the first week. I did much better this past week by walking on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and I will walk this afternoon. I’m walking between 30-35 minutes while listening to a podcast.

I started reading Part 2: “This Is How You Eat to Get Hot and Healthy” in Jackie Warner’s book. I read the chapter “Add to Lose” which basically explains the fat-burning foods that need to be added to your existing diet without changing it, supplementing your diet to maximize results, and subtracting foods that cause sensitivities. This chapter is a 2-Week Jump Start to Warner’s program. Therefore, it looks like I will be jump starting on the Monday after Easter along with starting my food journal.

On 19 March (Monday), I started Oprah and Deepak’s Shedding the Weight Meditation. It has been a wonderful way to end my day. It definitely relaxes me.

Only four days, dear reader, until I start Easter break and drop Andrew off at the airport for his adventure to Ireland, Wales, and London. How I wish I could fit in his suitcase! While he is away, I plan to spend time with family and friends, read, meditate, exercise, and organize my scrapbooking materials for my annual girls’ scrapbooking weekend at the end of May. Have a peaceful week while striving to make some area of your life better. Happiness!
