Currently June

Hey Y'all!

What an overwhelming and fun time of year! So much to do- only a few more days to have to do it! Right? You can make it! And you'll rest enough this summer you'll be ready to do it all over again!

I'm back to a commitment to Write About it Wednesdays this summer! I am back to being an independent consultant- and I thought that would mean a lot more time on my hands to blog among a long list of other things, but sadly, I'm still so stinking busy! I have NO idea where the month of April and May went! Alas here we are- June. SO it's time for Currently.

Listening: I love bad television... and I mean BAD television! It's Toddlers and Tiaras right now. Later tonight I'll be soaking in every minute of The Bachelorette! I mean it! Bad TV! I can do other things with bad TV playing in the background. So I watch a lot of it, because I am usually on the computer. This is the episode with Honey Boo Boo! Oh my! It is so terrible. Alas, you don't see me turning it off! 

Loving: I had plans at a friend's house to watch Bachelorette tonight- but she is feeling ill. So I have the whole night to myself now. J is at work tonight too- which makes this an even better SURPRISE... the house to myself! Not like I have any big plans. I will probably be in bed early. But as an only child, I do appreciate my "me time" for sure! 

Thinking: I got a lot done today! This is my first week for several weeks to be truly "off" and not traveling to a district.  Every day this week is a day at home to spend getting back in control of my life. The house is clean, the laundry is done, and the to-do list is getting shorter and shorter.  I swear I can get more done in 4 hours than my husband could even imagine doing in a week! Cracks me up! It's hard being me! :) I'm sure many of you out there can understand what I'm talking about! 

Wanting: So as we mentioned above, I have a surprise night alone. My friend and I usually have wine and pizza for our dinner dates.  While wine is still on the menu tonight (shocking I know) I can't decide what I want to eat. Typically it has to be something that J doesn't like to eat. Chinese food perhaps? Thai? Sadly we don't live somewhere with a lot of ethnic options. I'd kill for Indian from my little place back in VA tonight. Bummer. 

Needing: I'm trying to let it cool down out there before I go for a run.  It is steamy still.  I have a nice trail around a park near where I live. It even goes by a horse barn. PS- That is me trying to make myself want to actually go! 

Summer Bucket List:  I'm already on a roll with the first- read, read read. My "summer" kind of started in April. Since my summer months are my crazy time I took advantage of a slower April and May. I have already read 9 books and I have a stack of books still to be read! This may be the summer of the most reading- I can't complain about that!  
Next up is going to be crafting. I just got back from a HUGE flea market in Texas and saw a bunch of cute stuff which gave me a lot of new ideas! Not to mention the many Pinterest ideas I've found.  Made it Mondays- maybe I need to participate in those too! Uh oh- my calendar is getting pretty full.  
Finally, Enjoy is on the list! I want to float the river! I want to go to water parks! I want to be on the boat! It's going to be a summer of enjoyment! 

Happy summer to everyone reading this! 



  1. I'm waiting for it to cool down so I can run, too! I'm glad you're able to have a little "me time." I always enjoy that, especially if it's unexpected! Have a great summer!

  2. I love the bachelorette!! My husband thinks I'm crazy but you just can't help it! Hope you have a wonderful summer!

  3. Bad TV is a guilty pleasure of mine, too. While I don't typically watch the Bachelorette or Toddlers and Tiaras, I can marathon any show on Bravo like nobody's business. Watching other people's train wrecks makes me feel pretty good about my own life. Such are the joys of reality TV. :)

    I like your bucket list -- particularly item #3! Summer goes by so quickly so it's very important that you enjoy it while it lasts! Good luck with that!
