I’ve seen other bloggers do a variation of what they are currently up to, so I thought I’d do the same thing since often it doesn’t fit anywhere else.


Well, I didn’t really get into ‘Middlesex’ and instead have been focusing on ‘The Dresden Files.’  I think as I mentioned last month, I’ll finish the current book I’m on and then move on to something else for a switch. I haven’t decided what, though, as I’ve been watching more TV than reading lately. Tsk Tsk.


As far as television series go, need I even say that we’re still working our way through ‘Fringe’?  I can’t believe that ‘Parenthood’ is going to be over in just a few short weeks.  What will I watch then??? I sometimes put ‘Once Upon A Time’ on in the background because it’s cheesiness is semi-amusing and I can’t seem to stop watching it. I’ve also been watching ‘Gilmore Girls’ and started watching ‘Reign’ because the teen girl in me was interested.

As far as movies go, there have been a few duds quite honestly.  The one movie that was pretty fun (despite some plot issues that kind of bugged us) was ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’  It’s a fun action sci-fi movie and while Tom Cruise was alright, I really liked Emily Blunt. Like I said, there were a few story issues, but if you want a fun sci-fi movie this is it.  Ever since I had kids I can’t handle a lot of gore, so the PG-13 rating was perfect for me.


So much of everything, and I don’t care if I gain 10 pounds because I love it all.  I love this time of year because the fudge covered Ritz crackers are back along with so many other tasty and delicious things. With the colder weather it’s also the perfect time to drink more tea and a big mug of hot chocolate with whipped cream.


This time of year. I’m not a big fan of winter in general, and there is a lot of yucky pushy, rude, consumerism going on, but there are also just enough people out there who are in a really great mood because they also like this time of year and they make up for the all of the other lame people.  I’m also ready for lights to go up.  It’s nice that during this dark, cold, dreary time of year all of the lights somehow make it bearable with all of their happy twinkliness (<it should be a word).


I’m just going to say it… winter, or below freezing temperatures, rather.  There is no bigger pain than dealing with layers and bundling up small children.

Thinking About

Once again… so much and yet not so much. I spent most of my daydreaming time thinking about what we’ll do when we win the lottery. Yes, not if, but when.  I don’t think I’d change much about our lives except doing work that I really care about and not needing to worry about whether or not it would pay the bills.  Most of all, though, I think about everything we could do for other people… how exciting it would be to randomly surprise family and strangers with what they need most. Yeah, we’d do some selfish things, for sure, but really is there anything better than doing something really awesome for someone else?  I don’t think so.
