And just like that, I blinked and it’s February! I feel like we had a busy but fun January and I’m looking forward to all that we have planned in February. I’m joining Anne and Erin for the monthly Currently linkup. Here is what I am currently….
Packing – Suitcase-wise, I’m not packing anything! We have no big trips planned anytime soon. I’m packing lunch for the kids everyday though. My daughter is a breeze. She eats pretty much anything. My son is much more difficult. He doesn’t like cold cut sandwiches and has recently stopped liking the bagels I was giving him for lunch. So, packing lunch has not been fun. For now, he’s been happy with PB&Jelly, BLTs, and crackers with cheese and a yogurt.
Jonesing – for a diet pepsi (or coke!). In my quest to be healthier I have stopped drinking diet soda…..at home. I consider it a rare treat when we dine out, and even then sometimes I choose to drink water instead. Instead, I’ve been drinking seltzer with a little bit of juice, since I don’t like the taste of seltzer (yes, even the flavored kind) or lemon water. However, every once in awhile, a diet soda sounds really good!
Texting – Since my kids discovered iMessage on their iPods they have been texting me. Especially my son who loves sending emojis and “funny” (to him) memes.
Reading – I am in the midst of reading two books right now. I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh is a thriller/suspense book that is moving a bit slow for me. I went to NYC this past weekend with my daughter. Since it’s an hour train ride I packed Unbelievable (#4 in the Pretty Little Liars series) since it’s a paperback and was easier to carry around with me. It’s brain candy and reads quick, so I’ll probably be finishing that one up soon.
Hearting – Surprise, relaxing, cozy afternoons. Yesterday the kids had an early dismissal because of snow. I love being forced to stay inside, change into comfy clothes and know the rest of the day will be relatively relaxing…..after shoveling!
