Currently – July 2015

I figured it had been a while since I did one of these, and they’re always some of my favorite posts – a little snapshot of what’s going on in my life. So what’s up currently?

Reading… The King’s Curse by Philippa Gregory. It’s been on my wishlist for ages, so when it popped up on sale in the kindle edition the other day (for only 1.99!) I snagged it. It’s been a while since I read one of Philippa Gregory’s books, and she’s always been one of my favorites. It’s still on sale if you want to grab it!

Wearing… anything and everything that’ll keep me cool. It’s been crazy hot here this week and hopefully it’s the hottest we’ll get this summer. This girl is already ready for fall… but to be honest, I would’ve been perfectly happy to skip the summer heat anyway.

Listening… to fans. Like I said, it’s crazy hot here and I’ve had them going nonstop – both at work and at home.

Making… lists of everything I want to do, all the posts I want to write, and hoping for the time to do them. There never seems to be enough of it.

Wishing… To win the lottery… even though we never play it. It would be nice, huh? I don’t even want that much, just enough to pay off our debt. If only.

Looking forward to… heading to Blacksburg this evening! My sister Andrea’s orientation is this week, so my sister Melanie and I are heading down to Virginia Tech with her. I’m already planning what I want for every meal… and hopefully it’ll include all my favorites. Exhibit A: Gillie’s breakfast.


Hoping… that the rest of the workday goes by fast. Also, that Chris and Abbie have a fun couple of daddy-daughter days while I’m gone.

Eatingspinach salad. If I’m going to be eating all my favorite things later this week, I suppose being good now will help.

Drinking… Water with orange and lime essential oils. It’s my new favorite combination!

Going… to Blacksburg in just a few hours!

Spending… Well, hopefully not too much. We really need to be better about watching our budget. Things just keep popping up and it gets a bit frustrating.

Wondering… Nothing really. Maybe what I’ll have for dinner? I may be a little bit too focused on Blacksburg food today.

Wanting… to magically lose weight. It’s so hard not to get discouraged, as I’m sure many of you know. I had a rough few weeks and feel like I’m finally back on track again… literally. I’ve tracked every single thing I’ve eaten since my Weight Watchers meeting on Saturday, and I’m feeling great about it.

Missing… nothing at the moment, but I know I’m going to miss Abbie and Chris while I’m away. It will be nice to get in some time with two of my sisters though.

Feeling… Excited. I’m ready for this workday to be over so I can get going!

Loving… This article. It caught my eye the other day and I just think it’s beautiful. Kveller is a site devoted to Jewish parenting, but I find that they have things that speak to everyone too.

What are you up to lately?
