Not blogging is paralyzing. After I hadn’t blogged for a couple weeks I started feeling like I simply couldn’t jump back in without some kind of big epic explanation.
I don’t want to give a big epic explanation. I don’t even have one. Will you accept “Life has been crazy and I haven’t felt like it”? Because that’s about all you’re going to get.
But today, just as I was thinking that I really should just break down and blog, I came upon Heather’s blog in my reader, and her “Currently” prompt seemed about right for jumping back into blogging. So. Here goes nothing. 😛
Current Books: I don’t have much time to read fiction for my own personal enjoyment these days. Thankfully the kids’ school books are pretty fun. Right now I’m reading Charlotte’s Web to Stinky and The Jungle Book to Bubs. I’m also reading Made to Crave by Lysa Teurkerst with some ladies from my church, which has been really good. And I just finished reading the New Testament from start to finish, and have begun a Bible study about the book of James. Super good stuff.
Current Playlist: I have fallen in love with the music of The Piano Guys. I love the way they present their music, and I love that my daughter now knows what a cello is. We like to watch their youtube videos over and over.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Playing Words with Friends when I should be outside enjoying the beautiful weather.
Current Colors: We’re studying rainbows in our home school this week and next, so I’ve got Roy G. Biv on the brain!
Current Food: Green smoothies. Yummo.
Current Drink: just really trying to drink more water. Only sort of succeeding.
Current Favorite Favorite: Spring! We are having the most beautiful weather!
Current Wishlist: God’s will written in the sky would be nice. A cute new wardrobe. Lots of money to spend on homeschooling stuff. New curtains for my living room. A magical infusion of knowledge of how to use my new photoshop program.
Current Needs: Patience! And maybe a cleaning fairy.
Current Triumphs: I brought enough things to church last night to keep Squeezy occupied through the evening service. This has been a challenge lately! I lost five pounds during the month of February. March is not shaping up so well, though. 😛 I’ve had my lessons planned in advance for two weeks running now.
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: Waiting! It’s making me slightly crazy and causing my gray hairs to multiply!
Current Celebrity Crush: My husband. He’s kind of a big deal at his job. Bahahahaha.
Current Indulgence: Pajamas while the kids have quiet time. Ahhhhhhh . . .
Current Mood: A little silly and a lot impatient.
Current #1 Blessing: My amazing family. We have so much fun together. Right now we’re creating a movie together. It’s gonna be legendary. 😉
Current Slang or Saying: I don’t know. I think I must say “Oh for Pete’s sake” a lot, because I recently heard my two-year-old say it.
Current Outfit: flannel pants and an 8-year-old scrapbook.com t-shirt. But quiet time is almost over and I will be forced to put my jeans back on.
Current Link: My rainbow unit pinboard
Current Quote: “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (James 1:2-4 ESV)
Current Photo: I share this for two reasons. First, because my daughter is getting so big I can hardly stand it.
Second, because you can see my hair. Which I haven’t dyed since last May. It’s mostly an experiment and I might go back to dyeing it at any moment. Also, it doesn’t look quite this gray in all lights. Sometimes it looks mostly brown. But still.
Actually, I kind of like the gray hair. But I still might start dyeing it again at any moment. 😉
