Making: This post finally happen. A day late and a dollar short but it’s up.
Cooking: Nothing now. Just had dinner.
Reading: I promise I am ALMOST done with The Bully Pulpit – only 100 pages to go. Also reading The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend to which thus far, I’d give three stars.
Wanting: A little dessert, perhaps. We have York peppermint patties, mint cookie crunch ice cream, and cookie dough. Which should I have?
Looking: Forward to seeing family at my cousin’s wedding this weekend.
Eating: Nothing now but we just finished up a delicious dinner that Kevin prepared – spinach linguini with beef and sausage cherry tomato sauce. It was so tasty!
Wishing: For world peace. (And harsher punishments for parole violators.)
Enjoying: The French Cafe station on Pandora and the local classical station in my car. I find them both to be soothing.
Loving: That Kevin is loving his football season coaching gig. It has been a big chaotic (he was head C team coach but then there weren’t enough guys so that team was dissolved and he became the head middle school coach but then that team didn’t have enough guys so now there is a C team and he’s helping with Varsity too. Whew.). Fortunately he has been having fun in the midst of all that uncertainty.
Hoping: That all children are safe tonight and tomorrow and always. There was a horribly tragic event in my city recently involving a child and it has been weighing heavily on me. I can only cuddle my baby close and do the best I can by her while praying that all other parents do the same with their babies.
Needing: More hours in the day.
Smelling: The sweet scent of spaghetti sauce that lingers on the post-dinner air.
Feeling: Overwhelmed. I’m basically doing three jobs at work these days as the office manager is out for a few weeks, we’re between HR associates, and then there’s my regular QA work which I’m neglecting because the other two roles are taking all my time. I think I would feel fine about doing all three positions if I was in the office for more than 16 hours a week. Ava’s other caregivers have been helping out with extra shifts where they can – allowing me a few precious extra hours at the office – but I still feel like I’m drowning. It’ll all be fine, but I’m feeling quite strained now.
Wearing: My summertime uniform – nursing necklace, jean shorts, and a white v-neck men’s undershirt. I ordered a six pack of them a few months ago and basically wear one everyday.
Watching: The final Broncos pre-season game. Go Broncos!
