I’m days ahead of schedule with my Currently post for October. Seriously, there are at least a solid handful of days left in the month, so I say I’m kicking ass and taking names. Oh and this is my third post this week (that’s a big deal for me)? Boom goes the dynamite.
On that humble note, let’s begin:
Current Book: The Fiery Cross, the fifth book in the Outlander series and I am enamored. In the beginning I thought the books were a little too lengthy (they average 1,000 pages), and now I can’t get enough.
Current Triumphs: Ave had a shitty nap day yesterday and while it wasn’t fun, it didn’t bother me mentally the way it normally does. I’m calling it a success.
Current Needs: adult time with boozy cocktails and full sentences, spoken in anything other than sing-song, unless of course it’s the kind of belting it out that happens after multiple drinks.
Current Indulgence: apples and peanut butter. Hello Fall, my don’t you look sexy.
Current Drink: coffee; it’s my everything.
Current Bane of Existence: I’ve got a kitchen counter full of squash and no desire to cook them. Thanks to my CSA, I’m holding two acorns, a pair of butternuts, a dreaded pumpkin and my least favorite, the spaghetti squash. It doesn’t matter how you dress that last guy up or how much cheese is involved, it’s still stringy and weird. Also, it will never be pasta.
Current Obsession: Making a Murderer, the Netflix series. I’m a sucker for real life crime drama, and this story has me hooked (line and sinker).
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: picking up some new Halloween washi at Target last weekend. In my non-defense, I had a coupon. Plus, most of the stuff I can use year round.
Current Confession: I need a break from the kid. Thanks to her bottle boycott, we haven’t spent more than a few hours apart in months and months and months, and I’m starting to get a little stir crazy, not to be confused with my previous form of crazy.
Current Excitement: “I’m teaching Ave to drink breast milk out of a shot glass,” she says with a straight face. One way or another, she’s gonna take nourishment from someone other than me.
Current Blessing: Oscar. While he doesn’t actually babysit, he does entertain my child, which means he captivates her attention for a solid fifteen minutes on the daily. For those not in the know (cough, me six months ago, cough), this amount of time is huge in baby world.
Current Heartbreak: my beloved Nature’s Bin is closing its doors after 42 years of business. I’m devastated.
Current Wish List: another batch of these bars. When it comes to my sweet tooth, the force is strong with that one.
Current Thankfulness: despite bad naps or bottle boycotts, I get to stay home and raise the kid, and that is amazing.
Current Mood: caffeinated and tired; no explanation needed.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession?
