Since we’re nearing the end of the month, it’s 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 still reading Barkskins by Annie Proulx. “It’s just alright for me dawg.” My self-diagnosed OCD dictates I finish it though.
Current Obsession: salads. I’ve made a deliberate attempt to up my veggie intake and as a result, I’m on a green bender. I’m averaging four a week. Now if only my sex life could be equally as exciting.
Current Indulgence: snack platters, they’re my go to dinner when the Hubby has to work late. Cheese, crackers, fruit, veggies, little to no effort…what’s not to love?
Current Drink: I’m on a Moscow Mule kick, and I even have the shiny copper cups to prove it.
Current Food: scrambled egg bowls with beans, cheese, salsa and avocado. I’m eating these almost as much as my salads.
Current Triumphs: Ave is getting her first official tooth. The Hubby and I practically had to pin her down, so we could peek into her mouth, and there’s definitely a tooth popping through.
Current Bane of Existence: Teething equals sleep issues. We’ve had a handful of late nights this week, so life has been interesting to say the least.
Current Needs: a break from politics. It’s making my head heavy and my heart hurt. I want to pretend it doesn’t exist, yet at the same time, we as a country can’t afford to be blissfully ignorant right now.
Current Non-Guilty Pleasure: the Hubby and I are headed to the movies tonight. It’ll be our first date in months and our first movie outing since before Ave was born. I’m really looking forward to it.
Current Confession: I’m also incredible nervous about leaving my child because that’s what postpartum depression and anxiety does to your head. “It’s a blast,” she says sarcastically.
Current Excitement: Ave had her first grilled cheese sandwich this week, and she’s a fan, which really makes her a mental prodigy as well. She knows what’s up.
Current Thankfulness: my in-laws. They’ve been a tremendous help with the baby. Ave and I had a rough one earlier this week, and my father-in-law was at the house in minutes, and yesterday, my mother-in-law sent me home with a boatload of food.
Current Mood: really good, so long as I stay away from Facebook.
Your turn. What’s Currently going on in your world? Current book? Current obsession? Current confession? Do you have to finish a book once you’ve started it? How do you deal with anxiety?
