Since I haven’t written one in months, it’s high time to slip another Currently post into the mix. Instead of rambling on, as is my usual custom, I’m getting right to the point today. You’re welcome.
Current Book: I’m reading The Assassin’s Quest which is the third book in The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. This is the series that has kept me up more nights than is healthy. I’m obsessed, and my goal is to lap the Hubby who’s only a few chapters ahead of me now.
Current Food: egg salad sandwiches with pimento olives because I like it salty. Take that anyway you want.
Current Obsession: eggs. If it’s not sandwiches, we’re eating them scrambled, fried and in bowls. We are all about the eggs right now.
Current Drink: I start every day with half a lemon juiced and added to warm water, and Ave has taken to joining me. She drinks hers out of an espresso mug.
Current Confession: the end of December and the beginning of January were tough with the tiny dictator. The constant cold, coupled with staying indoors, was making me a little stir crazy and a lot unhappy. Suddenly, I found myself counting down the minutes instead of enjoying them.
Current Blessing: without a doubt my in-laws, who happily and willingly starting watching Ave a second day of the week, so I could get my mommy mojo back.
Current Advice: ask for help when you need it. Soldiering on only makes you miserable, which in turn impacts everyone around you.
Current Triumphs: I signed up for my first yoga class in over a year. I’m all about getting my groove back.
Current Excitement: Passport to Cleveland. I am super pumped for this event, partially because it’s being hosted by one of my favorites, CLEseats, but also because it’s going to be fraught with food and booze, more of my favorites. You should come.
Current Bane of Existence: exhaustion. While it’s a common state of parenting, I was up later than usual last night celebrating the Hubby’s birthday. Hashtag worth it.
Current Needs: I need to lose 30 pounds, although I’d happily settle for 20. Suffice to say, not only have I clung to my baby weight, but I’ve put on a few pounds as well. I’m ready to slowly start shedding it.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: ice cream in the middle of winter. Despite being a bit heavier than my health would like, I have no intentions of giving up sweets.
Current Mood: ambitious, motivated, although that could be the sugar high talking.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession?
