Current Reading

Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

On my list to read this year are:

  • Onward by Howard Schultz
  • Anything You Want by Derek Sivers
  • The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor
  • The Power of Broke by Damon John
  • The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod
  • Not Impossible by Mick Ebeling

My reading really stalled during mid- to late-2015 for some reason. I was in a good habit early in the year, reading at least 15 minutes or 15 pages per day, but then just fell out of the habit for some reason.

Current Projects

We are 95% done with our kitchen remodel project. Cabinets & counters are in and the ceiling has been repainted. We just need to paint the walls and touch up a couple spots on the ceiling (I ran out of paint at the very end.)

Master bedroom remodel is at a standstill due to a leaky roof/chimney flashing. Once that is fixed we will likely repaint and put down new wood floors. This is the main goal for 2016 – to finish our bedroom/bathroom!

Other Items of Note

I am searching for the “perfect backpack”. My current one is too busy – too many pockets, straps, zippers and mesh compartments. I need something simpler. Main wants are 1) a laptop compartment 2) a smaller front pouch for notebook, pens & book and 3) water bottle storage.

Adam & I finally went to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens (using gift cards from Christmas 2014!)
