Reading // Nothing at the moment! I have a couple of books sitting on my shelf that need to be read, but I haven’t found the inspiration to crack either one of them open yet.
Watching // Old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy again. I stopped (very briefly) to binge-watch Orange is the New Black and now that I’ve finished the season I’m back to Grey’s.
Listening to // A lot of the Pop2K channel on Sirius XM. The channel takes me back to high school and while I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing it’s amusing to hear all the songs I loved once upon a time.
Loving // Listening to Isla read to herself. She’s come really far and I’m super proud of her wanting to read things on her own.
Thinking // That this smoke is lame and all I want to do is take the kids outside so they can burn off their sillies but I can’t. Ugh.
Needing // A sweater. With the smoke comes cooler weather and it’s August and I’m wearing jeans and needing a sweater to stay warm.
Looking forward to // Joe Rogan’s comedy show!
What are you currently watching, reading, or listening to?
Reading // “The End of Men” by Karen Rinaldi. I picked this book up for free through Kobo, and so far, I’m glad I did. I’ve thought about abandoning it but a part of me keeps hoping it gets better. Full disclosure: It’s a chick lit book and not about women empowerment. No bra-burning over here, people.
Watching // We just started watching “LA to Vegas” on a whim and it’s so oddly funny! Kyle and I have grown weary of our “other” 30-minute comedy show, and this one is refreshing! Plus, Vegas holds a special place in our hearts for whatever reason.
Listening to // The Pop2K channel on Sirius radio. Take me back to the early 2000’s!
Loving // The sunny weather we’re FINALLY having! Isla had a Pro-D day yesterday, so we walked to the school and played for an hour and it was glorious.
Thinking // A lot about Daphne. I just miss her so dang much.
Needing // Motivation to do my schoolwork. With the nice weather it’s hard to stay inside and study, but sunlight and computer screens do not mix! I wish I could just sit out in the sun and study at the same time.
Looking forward to // The Boogie the Bridge this weekend! Kyle’s running his first half marathon, Isla is doing the 1K Mini-Boogie, and I’m doing the 5K run. I’m hoping my legs hang in there for me!
Reading // “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doeer. I’m only a few chapters in so far and things are moving a little slow, but after reading reviews I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops.
Watching // Kyle and I just started watching the new season of Alone. If you haven’t watched it, we highly recommend it! It’s a way more intense version of Survivor and it definitely gets some bonus points for being filmed on Vancouver Island.
Listening to // Throwback-style stuff on Spotify! Random songs from my high school years have been popping up in my head, so I’ve be reliving that ridiculous portion of my past thanks to Spotify, lol. Nothing like a little Limp Bizkit, DMX and Kid Rock to start my day!
Loving // That school is almost done for the summer! Only two (half) days left for Isla then she can tackle summer to her heart’s content.
Thinking // How I’m going to put together my office downstairs. I’m heading back to school in the fall (via distant learning) and I’m going to need a space where I can do my work without any interruptions from time to time.
Needing // A massage. I think it may be time for me to cash in my birthday/Mother’s Day present ;)
Anticipating // Norah and Isla’s birthdays. It’s going to be a busy weekend with Norah’s birthday on Friday and Isla’s party on Saturday. Please send me alllllll the liquor come Saturday evening ;)
Looking forward to // Summer vacation! I really hope to make the most of this summer before Isla heads off to kindergarten in the fall.
