She lives! After about a week of the flu, I’m finally feeling about 99%, and I am so glad to put that behind me. In theory, laying on the couch reading and watching TV sounds great, but talk to me after doing it for six days. It loses its appeal fast!
Anyway, today I thought I’d hit you with a Currently post to catch you up on the inner workings since I’ve been out of commission. Pay particular attention to the new book-and then go get a copy!
Current books: Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
Technically, I finished this last week while I was permanently glued to the couch, but I wanted a chance to tell you how much I loved it. I’ve seen numerous bloggers talk about JoJo Moyes books for about a year now, and I finally jumped on the bandwagon. There’s a reason she’s so popular. This was a heartbreaking read, but so, so good. I’m on the hunt for more of her novels so you can bet that’s what I’ll be reading next.
Current music: Pitch Perfect Soundtrack
It’s amazing how many to-do’s you can cross off your list while being couch-ridden with the flu. One of mine was to watch Pitch Perfect, and I can’t believe it took me so long. I LOVED this movie, and I downloaded the soundtrack within 1.23 seconds of finishing the film.
Current guilty pleasure: I say it every season, but, yes, I’m watching The Bachelor. Here’s where I give you my disclaimer that I’m actually a very smart person and everyone has their vices.
Current nail color: Oh, you guys, it’s so bad. After my last half, my feet look like something out of a horror movie, and the color of my toenails are the least of my worries.
Current drink: Water. The flu seriously dehydrated me, and I still don’t feel like I’m completely back up to snuff on that score.
Current food: Flapjacked! I have FINALLY gotten my appetite back, and I’ve been eating a ton of pancakes. They’re easily my favorite food anyway so I’m really loving them now that they taste good again!
Current shows: We’re back on The West Wing. We stopped watching a few months ago after finishing season six because, at least for me, I wasn’t ready for the whole thing to be over. However, after spending five days on the couch, I ran out of things to watch so I popped in the DVD on season seven, and I’m completely sucked back in. We have three episodes left, and I’m really going to be sad when it’s over.
Current needs: Snow! Yes, I know that I should be happy that it’s 70 degrees, but I’m not one of those people. It’s almost February, and I just want one snowfall before we have to endure five months of hellish temperatures.
Current bane of my existence: My running shoes. I lost a week, and I have a race in a week and a half. That math doesn’t work well.
Current celebrity crush: I’m going to throw you a new one today.
I’ve always thought Chris Pine was cute, but, after seeing him in Into The Woods last month, I have a full-blown thing.
Current indulgence: When I was in college and again when I was first living on my own, I ate dry cereal like it was going out of style. Obviously, I gave that up some time ago, but lately it has sounded really good so I picked up a box at the grocery store the other day. It probably won’t become a regular thing, but, man, is it good!
Current blessing: My job. I work with and for some really great people, and I’m so thankful that everyone was accommodating and understanding last week. I recognize that some people don’t have the option of staying home when they’re sick, and I’m so grateful that I’m not one of them.
Current outfit: Dress and boots. I know the end of boot wearing season is imminent so I’m trying to wear them as much as possible.
Current excitement: The weekend! We don’t have anything special planned, but I’m not sick so I can actually enjoy it.
Current mood: Euphoric
What’s going one with you? I feel out of the loop!
