Would ya look at that? It’s the last day of the month, which means perfect time for me to sneak in a November Currently post.
Can we pretend my opening was way slicker than the reality? I think I’ll just dive right in before I make more of a mockery of myself.
Current Book: I’m still reading The Fiery Cross, the fifth book in the Outlander series, and yes, I’m still smitten. In fact I look forward to curling up with it every evening, alongside Oscar. The Hubby makes an appearance too, not in the book that is, but the bed.
Current Triumphs: getting the outdoor Christmas decorations up. The lights and wreaths have been hung without my furry feline’s assistance. The lack of opposable thumbs gets him every time.
Current Obsession: Downton Abbey. I’ve dipped my toe into season two.
Current Indulgence: Coffee Crisps. These Canadian candy bars coupled with our President Elect make a move north very appealing.
Current Drink: coffee; all day, every day.
Current Food: oatmeal. The kid and I eat a big bowl of this for breakfast on the daily. Really I have a big bowl, and she ninjas a few bites.
Current Bane of Existence: Ave is going through the eight month sleep regression, which means she’s been waking up every other night at random times ready to party like a rock star.
Current Confession: as a result, I got frustrated and punched a wall (not while holding the baby, of course). I hurt my hand. Stupid old houses, stupid plaster walls.
Current Needs: therapy, a higher dose of Zoloft or some better anger management skills. Actually, I’d settle for some alone time because my inner introvert is crying out now that Ave is up at all hours. Maybe I can cocoon myself in cotton candy because fluffy sugar is better than the hard stuff.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: sitting fireside. It’s one of my favorite places to be during the colder months. Also the tiny human is fascinated with the flames; it’s possible she’s going to be a pyromaniac. Like mother, like daughter.
Current Excitement: I had a big spike in my blog traffic on Thanksgiving and the day prior, specifically for these Savory Parmesan Mashed Sweet Potatoes, which means my spuds adorned some of your holiday tables and that makes my potato loving heart happy.
Current Blessing: despite our sleepless ways and sore knuckles, the Hubby and I are in a position where I can stay home with the babe, and that is amazing. We’re so fortunate, and I don’t forget it for a second.
Current Wish List: unlimited Etsy funds for no particular reason (cough, planner stickers, cough). Someone else has taken an interest, so I might have to learn how to share.
Current Thankfulness: 59 degree (15 Celsius) weather in November, so I didn’t freeze my non-ass ass off when I hung the Christmas lights. I’ll take it, happily too.
Current Mood: content and hopeful Ave sleeps through the night. Cross your fingers for us.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession?
