Currently: the Bleak December

Current Books: I just finished The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. It reminded me a bit of Rebecca, of Manderly. It took me forever to read it though. I have been so distracted by so many things lately. Now I am reading Hate List by Jennifer Brown. It is really good, but doing nothing for my jumpiness. I'm not sure why I've been so jumpy lately.

Current Playlist: Well, my new book centers around a girl named Wyn, and she happens to be an Aerosmith nut, so there's lots of Aerosmith being played around here, especially when I'm cooking.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Little Debbie cakes. I've knocked so much junk food from my diet, but suddenly I can't get enough Oatmeal Cream pies or Swiss Cake Rolls.

Current Colors: Kentucky blue. I got a new coat in that pretty color.

Current Fetish: Keurig. Corey got me one for Christmas, but the box showed up with Keurig written all over it, so the surprise was spoiled. I love it though. I want to try the chai latte k-cups. He also got me a reusable k-cup. I will mostly use that.

Current Food: There's leftover taco soup in the fridge.

Current Drink: Coffee with sweet cream and sugar.

Current Favorite Favorite: Text conversations with my sister. The older we get, the more and more I like her and enjoy her friendship. I hope my boys feel that way about each other someday.

Current Wishlist: K-cups, Amazon giftcards, an XL long sleeved Little Women shirt from Out of Print Clothing, a new Kindle case...

Current Needs: More dental work. Always always always more dental work. And I need to relax and let the process happen with my writing.

Current Triumph: It's not my triumph, but I'm really excited about Corey finishing seminary, and doing so with an amazing GPA. For myself, I'm excited to have passed the 20,000 word mark on the first draft of a new novel.

Current Bane-of-my-Existence: Waiting. Waiting on a few really specific things. I need to relax and let the process happen in multiple areas of my life.

Current Indulgence: Did I mention the Little Debbies? Yeah, well, that. Also, going back to sleep after getting David up for school. I only sleep about an hour before getting up and starting school with Haydn, but I should probably just stay awake in the first place.

Current Mood: Pensive.

Current #1 Blessing: COREY FINISHED SCHOOL!

Current Outfit: jeans, a dark purple long-sleeved shirt, tennis shoes.

Current Link: This website has the best t-shirts.

Current Quote: "Everything will be okay in the end, and if it isn't okay it isn't the end."

Current Photo:



Title taken from "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe:

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.Eagerly I wished the morrow; — vainly I had sought to borrowFrom my books surcease of sorrow — sorrow for the lost Lenore —For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore —Nameless here for evermore.
