One of these months I’m going to pen a Currently post from Ave’s eyes, and it will be brilliant. Sadly, that is not this month, and I’m afraid you’re stuck with little old me. Let’s get this party started.
Current Book: December’s been a good month for reading, which made my book loving heart happy. I plowed through Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka (loved), Someone Will Be With You Shortly by Lisa Kogan (so funny), Come Back: A Mother and Daughter’s Journey Through Hell and Back by Clair and Mia Fontaine (heart wrenching) and I just started Barkskins by Annie Proulx (too soon to tell, although the writing is superb).
Current Triumphs: after four weeks of ups and downs, Ave has started sleeping through the night again. I’m hopeful we’re made it through the dreaded sleep regression. Sleeping baby = happy momma.
Current Obsession: chocolate. White, dark, milk, it doesn’t matter. I like it all.
Current Indulgence: reading. I go to bed ridiculously early every night, specifically so I can curl up with my book. It’s my “me” time these days.
Current Drink: sparking wine. I like bubbles, and they like me. We’re in a mutually agreeable relationship.
Current Food: veggies. I want green things all the time now, followed shortly thereafter by chocolate because balance.
Current Bane of Existence: the baby weight. I’m ready to lose it mainly because I don’t want to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe. My maternity clothes are too baggy and my regular clothes are too tight. It’s getting irksome, although I promise not to do anything foolish like go on a diet or a juice cleanse.
Current Confession: December was a tough month and my postpartum depression reared its ugly head more than I would have liked. With the baby sleeping well now, I’m in a good place mentally again, but I was surprised by how easily it resurfaced. Bastard hormones.
Current Needs: I need to transition into a night owl considering the bulk of my free time is when Ave is in bed for the evening, which happens around 6:30 p.m. While I’d love to do all the things, once 5 o’clock hits, I’m as limp as a wet rag.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: lunch dates with myself. My in-laws watch the tiny human for a couple of hours on Tuesdays so I can get away, and they can have one-on-one time with the baby. It’s a win all around.
Current Excitement: United We Brunch. It’s a relatively new annual event in Cleveland where breakfast food and booze (hello Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar) abounds, and the Hubby scored us tickets; mainly because I begged but whatever. He’s gonna thank me for this later.
Current Thankfulness: I’m so very thankful for the support of my family and friends. They make my life and by extension the baby and the Hubby’s life better. I would be lost without them.
Current Mood: I’m feeling good these days. With proper sleep, I’m like a complete and mostly sane human again. It’s rather refreshing.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession?
