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.



I’m actually reading ‘Allegiant’ despite not being super impressed by ‘Divergent’ and ‘Insurgent,’ I just like to finish things, you know?  Okay… unless it’s the Twilight series or 50 Shades of Crap… er Grey.  I’m really picky when it comes to dialogue in any book that I read – it has to feel real otherwise I can’t get past it and it just bugs me.  I’m also reading ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ (written by J.K. Rowling). Good dialogue so far and while it hasn’t completely captured my full interest, I’m intrigued by the characters and it’s a decent bedtime read.


As far as television series go – not much new here.  We finished watching ‘The Quest’ a week or so ago. It was a nice change from other reality competition shows, even though there were still a lot of similarities as far as how people are eliminated and stuff like that.

We’ve had a few duds recently… nothing really standout. ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ was only so-so, ‘Robocop’ was kind of boring, and ‘Despicable Me 2’ was okay.  Probably the best of the bunch was ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2,’ which wasn’t amazing, but was pretty good overall. I liked it better than Josh did, so… at least I didn’t fall asleep during it?  Right?


Homemade chocolate chip cookies, which makes me want to make other homemade goodies.  Particularly bread… aside from banana bread, I haven’t made homemade bread in forever.  I also bought a bag of ‘Bakery On Main’ granola that is amazing and happens to taste like banana bread. Kind of awesome.


I’m loving a lot of things right now.  I’m loving that I started my aromatherapy certification classes. It’s becoming such a big thing right now, and it’s important to me that I be informed and I’m really hoping that ultimately I can use the knowledge in some kind of work related capacity whether it be through self-employment or… who knows?  Either way, there’s a lot of misinformation out there and it’s important to me that I treat my family safely and offer safe suggestions to other people, but that’s an entirely different post.  Anyhoo, I’m also loving some of this Fall weather.  I’m not a fan of 80-90 degree heat, so the cooler temperatures are kind of nice. I’m a snuggler, so blanket and hot tea weather is kind of nice.

Thinking About

How big my to-do list is and wondering if I’ll ever get it all done.  I won’t, but I’m going to try and get as much accomplished as possible. As boring as it is, I think I need to give myself some kind of schedule and smaller goals so that I don’t feel so overwhelmed by everything I want/need to get done.  It’s not easy finding spare time when you work full time and have two small kiddos.  I knew it would be a lot of work, but I did underestimate just how little “free” time I’d have and just need to prioritize and figure out what is actually most important to me right now when I’m not spending time with my munchkins.
