I have a pretty intense case of writer's block this week, it seems. But I'm about due for a fresh episode of currently, so...no time like the present! (I just looked back and my last 'currently' post was while I was on maternity leave. Waaaahhhhh look at tiny baby Millie!!!)
For the record, it is 9:00 p.m. on a Wednesday night...
Eating...nothing, but I'll probably hit the fridge for some leftover birthday cake any minute now. Matt got me a Spanish lemon cake from my favorite bakery...and it's a cake suited for about 20 folks...and there's just two of us, soooo...you do the math. (Sorry, thighs!!)
Drinking...water. ALWAYS WATER. I'm about to complete my 18th consecutive day of drinking a gallon a day and I'm finally getting used to it. And I haven't seen any miraculous changes in my body whatsoever, so...I'm really not sure what the point is, besides doing it to say I can do it. I'll keep up with it for the rest of the month (because that's what I said I was gonna do, dangit), but after that I may scale back to a more natural amount. I think I could easily do 96 oz a day. I drink four 32oz bottles per day to get to the gallon...the first three are pretty easy. And then it's 10:23 p.m. and I'm staring down half a bottle and chugging it so that I can just freaking go to bed.
Wearing...sweats and an old sweatshirt. Not matching, though. And lipstick! I just got some new lipsticks (or..."lip lustre creme," as the case may be) tonight for my birthday, so I needed to try them out.
Feeling...happy. We've started going on walks in the evenings after dinner (gotta get my steps in to appease the Fitbit, ya know...) and it makes me so happy. It's freezing cold (well, by my pansy Georgia standards) and dark, but we bundle up and make a family event out of it. Millie loves cuddling in the Ergo and looking at the lights, while Lola just loses her mind every time we spring her out of
jail the house, so it's really fun for all.
Post-walk photo shoot tonight...can you spy a baby?
There she is!!
Weather...cold and windy. 41 degrees (but feels like 35, according to the Weather Channel!) and 82% humidity...like, how is that even possible? But it's been really great weather this week...it does get cold in the mornings and evenings, but gets up into the low 60s during the day...and sunny...so I really can't complain.
Wanting...to reread the Harry Potter books. Working my way through the movies now has me wanting to go back and read from the beginning...slowly, this time. Last time I just rushed through, so anxious to get to the end and see what happened. Now I can really absorb. I've been debating whether to ask for the paperbacks or Kindle editions of all of the books for Christmas...I'm leaning towards Kindle, just because it would be so much easier to have them with me all the time to capitalize on using down time for reading? But Kindle books are so unshareable...wah.
Needing...ummm...someone to clean my floors? Someone that isn't me, I should add. I've never been very good at mopping with any sort of regularity...and normally I'm happy to just live in my filth, but it just occurred to me that Millie will probably start crawling at some point, and suddenly I'm disgusted at the thought of her on my (swept and vacuumed, but not exactly mopped) floors. But I really don't have time for mopping. Or a strong enough back. Or the desire. So I think I'm going to outsource it when I write the 2015 budget. That's the dream, anyway.
Thinking...about when I'm ever going to do my Christmas shopping. I'm WAY slack on that this year. Other than a few random things I ordered from Etsy shops and Amazon...um, well, no. That's it. I haven't so much as stepped into Target or the mall. I've gone to a few shops downtown on my lunch break. I have no idea what I'm even getting like half the people I need to buy for. Waaaaah. I just wanna cuddle my baby, I don't want to spend my free time shopppppinnnnnggggg!!!!
Enjoying...everything about life right now. I can't remember a period of life where I was ever so blissfully happy for so long. I know that hard times will come again, but I'm completely happy to just soak in this joy while it's here. Last night I walked through the house and saw my sweet dog resting on the couch by the Christmas tree (against the rules, but whatever) and heard Matt and Millie laughing and playing in the bathtub, and I just couldn't even deal with it. My heart is so full.
