Currently I Am

thinking about a post I wrote but haven’t published yet. It’s about extended family. I’m not sure it’s vague enough to not cause hurt feelings within the family. So I’ll wait until I’m sure.

 

reading a book called Shaken by Kariss Lynch. It’s a Christian Romance Fiction and it packed a punch. The story revolves around a woman who is in Haiti as a missionary when the earthquake brought the city down around her. I shed tears while reading this book and I almost never get that invested in a story. 

 

listening to the rain pounding on the deck and thankful it’s not snow.

 

planning our summer beach vacation. We’re hoping to spend a whole week this year and I cannot wait!

 

working on our taxes. I hate doing the taxes. I love the big refund but I hate the work involved.

 

eating a new Loaded Potato Griller from Taco Bell. It’s so good. So so so good. I’m hooked.

 

watching Troy Dunn reunite a family of brothers and sisters on his new show APB with Troy Dunn. I need more tissues because this is so sad. 

 

thinking about my sister-in-law who had a miscarriage recently and ended up with a hysterectomy after some complications arose during the D&C. My heart just breaks for her. 

 

accepting that my house will not be truly spotless until all the kids leave home. But I’d rather have it messy and full of life than empty and clean. 

 

enjoying my second cup of Green Mountain Island Coconut coffee this morning. So delicious. 

 

thankful that so far we have managed to avoid any severe illnesses this winter. I should probably knock on wood right now. 

 

anticipating the start of the 2014 NASCAR season. 17 days until the Daytona 500. Not that I’m counting down or anything…

 

finishing my second load of laundry for the day. Only 3 more to go…

 

hoping you all remember to enter for a chance to win a $1,000 Target Gift Card on my Target Cartwheel post.

 

My head is a jumble of half coherent and somewhat chaotic thoughts today so typing them out into a few sentences helps me to organize and process through it. Clearly all that therapy finally paid off. About time.

    I just love this post because I feel like you’re a real human being blogger and not one of the washed up look what I bought, look where I went, look at me bloggers. I appreciate you! I’m in prayer for your family members who have been grief stricken.

    I was reading along and I was like, “Oh yes. Yup! Agreed!” Then I got to NASCAR and went, “Nope,” and then I remembered that you’re a southern gal, hehe. I’m praying for your sister-in-law too. It’s one of those things that you feel so blessed that it’s not happening to you, but at the same time your heart breaks for them.

    Thanks for the book recommendation! I added it to my GoodReads bookshelf. Now, off to do my millions of loads of laundry too. I told my husband I was going to bed. Don’t tell him I was here. ;-)

    I can only imagine how heartbroken your sister-in-law is right now. To get a dual blow like that is horrible, but I know you and your family will help support her as best you can.

    Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry for your sister in law. That is so terrible. Not only miscarrying but also having your chance at having another taken away. I can’t even imagine. That is tragic. Sending love and prayers.
    17 days until I lose my husband! Yay! What a wonderful thought! Also 17 days until Rob and you start bickering again about who is better. Now that I find entertaining!
