Habitual Thankfuls (A #10Thankful Post)

As usual, my brain is full & chaotic. BUT, I am finding it highly therapeutic to make sure to list my thankfuls each weekend. . . Habitual Thankfuls Continue reading “Habitual Thankfuls (A #10Thankful Post)”


What a Mess!

Dishes get left in the sink, laundry stays piled up, the floor needs to be swept & mopped. . . It’s not horrific, I suppose, BUT, it IS just an hour or so of good, solid effort to kick the house up to the next notch of cleanliness. What makes it even more frustrating is that it’s on my mind & I want to do it.

Yet I don’t.

The clutter around me, however, is nothing in comparison to the clutter within me.

This is What a Bookworm Looks Like

When you Google the word “bookworm,” it is my picture that should appear. . . For as long as I can remember, I have loved to bury my nose in a book & lose myself in it. As a child, my mother would kick me outside to play on a nice day & I would find a spot under a tree to read a book & let the rest of the world slip away for as long as I could. . . Back then, I remember reading anything by R.L. Stine (largely all things Goosebumps — which I have discovered my nine-year-old enjoys reading now!) & pretty much every book in The Baby-Sitter’s Club series by Ann M. Martin — in fact I was literally part of the club, receiving a regular package in the mail with Babysitter’s Club memorabilia, along with the latest book. I had boxes upon boxes of it at one point. . . Then, one day, I just outgrew it. I don’t even remember which one of the neighbor kids I gave it all away to — but I do remember passing it all along to someone.

With all of this in mind, it is no wonder that I am finding the Blog-tember Challenge‘s writing prompt of the day to be free-flowing:

“What’s on your current reading list? Or what have you read that you recommend?”

Currently. Volume 2.

Yeah, yeah. This is supposed to be a weekly Monday post. Better a day late than not at all, eh? 😉

I am currently. . .

Looking forward to: (other than the day that my HCG levels are below 5), I am looking forward to hugging Little RJ as he gets off the plane tonight! YES! Tonight is the night! We have him for three weeks & I am SO STOKED to have him here for a bit. I miss him so much.
