Current Books: I am finishing the Lord of the Rings Trilogy on my Nook and reading a book on parenting ADHD children. I also started Plan B by Pete Wilson. I have a new Neta Jackson novel for our trip to Cincinnatti. Also, I have the audio of Forgotten God by Francis Chan to listen to on our trip. And Daddy bought us the audio version of The Hobbit so the boys and I can listen on the way to Columbia this month.
Current Playlist: Audio books. We just listened to a CD of Greek myths. I always loved mythology as a kid and reading the latest book by Sue Monk Kidd and her daughter, Ann Kidd Taylor, inspired me to refresh myself a little and share that love with the boys.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Naps. I took naps all weekend. Corey was actually off and did a lot of packing. I was lazy.
Current Colors: Debating what color bedding to get in the new house. We will have a guest room and I am thinking about greens in there.
Current Fetish: My Nook. Wallpapers for it and free ebooks, etc...
Current Food: Fruit. I have strawberries, raspberries and blueberries in the fridge. David and I picked the blueberries ourselves. We went to this wonderful blueberry farm in Pontotoc with my friend, Aimee, and her girls.
Current Drink: At home, I stick to Diet Coke, but out and about, I have been drinking Diet Mt Dew. I drink a lot of Sobe Lifewaters, as well. They have been BOGO at CVS.
Current Favorite Favorite: The library. I went ahead and packed all of the boys' books. We are bringing home all sorts of things from the library and reading like crazy.
Current Wishlist: Lots of house stuff.
Current Needs: Just to get things done in time. To have the right things fall into place at the right times. My biggest need is always patience.
Current Triumph: Up until this weekend, I had done all of the packing in the house. Jackie and Nancy Brown helped me with my kitchen and I have been working away since then. It feels good to help Corey with that much, since I will not be here for the actual move.
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: The boys fighting with one another. I know, siblings fight. I fought with Carrie. It is part of life and raising children. But it drives me crazy.
Current Celebrity Crush: I will take Aragorn from the LotR movies, please. Yum! In the books, I am a Legolas fan, but in the movies, Aragorn is much yummier.
Current Indulgence: I bought a Scrumdiliuptious bar. Normally, I would not buy a $2 candy bar. Just silly. But, it is a Willy Wonka candy bar, like in the book and movie. So, I had to have one.
Current Mood: I am a bit melancholy lately. Worrying about my brother's family and wishing I could fix some things for him and for Corey and, well, for Daddies everywhere. I have been thinking a lot about my ADHD and passing it onto my kids and what things I got from my parents and grandparents. History has a way of making me sad and excited all at once.
Current #1 Blessing: My Abba. God continues to amaze me, day after day.
Current Slang or Saying: Lately, people and things are all "yummy."
Current Outfit: I am still in my cherry pie PJ pants and a t-shirt. I will throw on some jeans in a bit.
