Currently – January

January is already more than halfway over… but I’m not going to dwell on that. Plenty of time to get things done, feel accomplished and all of that good stuff and dip my toes back into blogging because it’s the only form of journaling/record keeping I was ever semi-consistent with and call me crazy, but I enjoy looking back.

Reading… Welcome to Night Vale

I’m thinking maybe one needs to have listened to the podcast first to actually make sense of it?

Watching (on TV)… Outlander, This Is Us

Playing… A handful of games… I never finish anything quickly… except books.

Inspired byMusic and dance

Needing/Wanting… At least one or two more hours in the day… or you know, the lottery would be nice since that would definitely afford me more time.

Listening to… Random Spotify playlists.  I’ve been jumping around a lot trying to find just what I’m in the mood for.  I will literally listen to instrumental/classicial, metal, pop, rap, etc. all in the same day.  So… that.

Drinking… More water and working on cutting back on caffeine.  I think I just got into a habit of drinking coffee because it’s warm and comforting, but I really need more water.

Eating… Healthier, or at least making more of an effort to.  With our schedules so busy, we definitely let ourselves fall into bad eating patterns and I’m making an effort to plan meals again and try and get our picky eaters to branch out more.  Working full time, longish commutes and after school activities really make it hard most nights, so time to set some new routines.

Planning… Summer vacation! 

Creating Lots of lists of all the things I need/want to do.

Practicing… Flexibility and graceful movement.  Though I feel like I must have been a dancer in another lifetime, what I see and feel in my head does not always translate to this body!  Ha!

Trying… To add more beneficial habits to my life while shedding the ones that don’t serve me.  It’s all too easy for me to curl up in a ball and read or watch tv, so I’m pushing myself harder to deal with the cold and warm up by being active with reading and a glass of wine as a reward.

Looking forward to… A date night with Josh. I scored some sweet free tickets to a hockey game and we’re going to go try a new to us place to eat and drink beforehand. 

Enjoying… A little extra freedom with my days/evenings to go to more pole classes but also try new things.  I’m pushing myself more than I used to and really stepping out of my comfort zone a lot.  My introverted nature balks sometimes, but that tiny extroverted piece of my soul has been reveling in all of the fun and adventures I didn’t allow her to have for so many years.  

Feeling… Slightly overwhelmed and anxious, yet also excited and hopeful.

Currently… October

Reading… The Shining… only during the day, of course

Watching (on TV)… Stranger Things (again)

Playing… Spooooky games for Twitch and Vampyr when I can

Listening to… Moody mixes and songs to dance to

Drinking… Warm drinks and hard cider

Eating… Birthday cake

Planning… Parties, Vacations, Solo Getaways, you name it

Creating… A Demogorgon, obviously

Practicing… Pole and flexibility

Trying… To spread my wings and not fall

Looking forward to… next year

Enjoying… No humidity and fewer allergies!

Feeling… All the feelings.  I’m a roller coaster of emotions!!

Demogorgon teeth… just about 100 more to go. 


Is this a return to blogging?  Not sure yet.  Either way… it’s something.

Currently :

Reading… The Dog Stars, The Arthurian Saga (on Book #3)

Watching (on TV)… The Second Season of a Handmaid’s Tale, The Curse of Oak Island

Playing… Don’t Starve, Stardew Valley, The Forest and as of tonight, Detroit : Become Human!!

Listening to… A variety of tunes, can’t seem to make up my mind what I want to hear, so I listen to everything on Spotify.

Drinking… Too much coffee, Sparkling water, Dark beers, Sweet wines

Eating… A few too many snacks of late.  Gotta switch it up!  Craving lots of grilled veggies and stuff, though!

Planning… Some fun crafts/cosplays, creating an outside living space on our deck

Wearing… Summer clothes!! I think we skipped spring entirely…

Enthusiastically… Picking up my camera again here and there, getting outside, finding myself in things that I love (dancing, baking, reading, creating, and so many other things).

Trying… To create better habits and routines.  I’ll get there.

Looking forward to… Summer activities like camping, pub crawls, picnics, yard work, Ren Fest, hikes, fairs, the works.

Enjoying… My weekly pole classes.  I need to push myself to be better about practicing during the week at home, though.  It’s my favorite time to just be myself and get away from everything. I’ve always enjoyed dance.

Disliking… The Freaking Frustrating Formidable Fours.  Who knew my little lady would develop such sass and attitude over the past couple of months?  I’m hoping a switch flips when she hits five.  Oy vey.

Feeling… “… stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.”


Well, another month has gone by, so here we go…

Reading… The Return of the King, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

I think I’m going to work my way through all of the Tolkien books that I have, but I can never read just one book at a time and started The Readers of Broken Wheel, which is really good so far. Its light, which I feel like is perfect for right now and also inspired me a bit.

Watching (on TV)… Getting ready for Outlander!!

I am a full blown fanatic.  I would honestly re-read the books right now if I didn’t have so many others on my plate already.  #bookwormproblems

Watching (movies)… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Finally watched it this month!  Now I really want to go see IT as well, though.  The original creeped me out so much when I was a kid and now I feel like I have to see the remake.

Playing… This Is the Police, Lego: Jurassic World

Josh and I have been playing Lego: Jurassic World together, but I can never stick with just one game and bounce around a lot and wanted to try out This Is the Police for Twitch streaming tonight.

Listening to Thumping bass.

There is a street fair/festival/something happening this weekend in the town where I work, and apparently they’re starting up already!

Drinking… Coffee, coffee, coffee!!

Hot, Iced, you name it.  I’m sure I’ll switch more to tea as we get into fall as tea has always been more of a fall drink for me.

Eating… Not as much junk, but probably more than I should be.

The story of my life.

Wearing Layers.

The leaves are changing and while this week has cooled down, I’ll be back in summer clothes next weekend as the temps are supposed to go back up.

Trying To start up some healthier mental and physical habits.

We’re attempting to get to the gym more, eat better, but also cut down on distractions like various screens and social media things like that.

Wanting A new comforter/duvet

Our current comforter has been destroyed by the cats over time and it’s just awful now.  Plus it doesn’t match anymore, so I’m on the hunt. I think I found the perfect one for Josh and I, but it’s a little spendy and I’d have to make sure to get a throw blanket to ensure the cats don’t destroy it.  SIGH.

Looking forward to… Fall!

Well, sort of.  I’ve been having a more difficult time getting into the changing season, but I’ve been reminding myself of all the good things. Walks that don’t leave me dripping with sweat, more blanket snuggles, tea and hot cocoa, fall colors, Halloween!

Thoroughly enjoying… Hearing all about Enzo’s kindergarten experiences.

His first week has gone swimmingly and I think he’s going to grow up a lot this year.  He’s been a tad excited and therefore really amped up, but I think things will settle in a week or so.  Phoebe, on the other hand is having a rougher week with her transition into the preschool room at day care.

Disliking… Tantrums and rough bedtimes.

Need I say more?

Feeling… All over the place.

A little anxious, but trying to focus on gratitude and staying optimistic.


Reading… The Two Towers, Tell the Wolves I’m Gone

Watching (on TV)… Game of Thrones, The Great British Bake-Off, Glow (just finished)

Watching (movies)… Wow… I can’t think of any that we’ve watched recently.

Playing… Broken Age, Indigo Prophecy

Listening to… Silence, but I should put on some Spotify or something before I get tired.

Drinking… Coffee, coffee, coffee!!

Eating… Too much junk… again. Story of my life.

Wearing… Layers.  August weather can be crazy at times.

Deciding… What to wear for tonight.  It warmed up, but it might be too chilly to wear my original planned outfit.

Wanting… More time!!  How is there never enough?

Looking forward to… Renaissance Festival time!  I’m a dork and this year we are absolutely dressing up. Any excuse to dress in costume, right?

Feeling… Excited to go out with Josh tonight to MST3K Live!

Dreaming… Of all the things I’ll do once we win the lottery/start working for ourselves.

Searching… For random toys that Phoebe doesn’t know where she put.  Last time I couldn’t find the flashlights, I found them in our closet with her “buried” treasure, so maybe I’ll look there.

Thoroughly enjoying… Watching Enzo take on more responsibility here and there and having him be more snuggly.

Disliking… Tantrums.
