Currently: October

Hello!  As predicted, last week was a whirlwind of activity, and I really didn’t feel like I was able to catch my breath until Sunday afternoon.  That being said, Fall Break passed in kind of a blur so I am going to be more than happy when this weekend rolls around.  We have plans to hit the trail, but, unfortunately, it’s starting to look like Mother Nature has other ideas.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed because I’m definitely in need of a little trail time!

So how about we do a little Currently today? It’s a little snapshot of the craziness that is my life right now!


Current books:  I finally finished up one I’ve been working on for a few weeks (yes, that’s how busy my schedule has been!) so now I’ve moved on to Into Thin Air.  I’m really excited to get deep in the middle of it.  I felt like I got to know the characters when I watched the Everest movie so now I’m really craving some more background.


Current music:  Three cheers for the newest Trail Show episode!  You guys, this is my favorite podcast, and I anxiously await the newest installment every month.  October’s episode just came out today!


Current food:  Last night I made Katie’s Cream Cheese Chicken Chili for the second or third time, and I swear it gets better every time I make it.  It’s really good, and I have gotten an enthusiastic response from the male member of our household each time.  To make it even better, it’s so easy!  I highly, highly recommend this one!

Current shows:   You know I’m a TV junkie, and the week all my shows come back is basically one of my favorite of the year.  We’ve been into the new seasons for a few weeks now, and my DVR is full of all my old favorites.  We have discovered a few new ones that we’re really liking namely Quantico (so good!), Blindspot (two thumbs), Limitless (quirky with Bradley Cooper thrown in every now and again), and Life in Pieces (hilarious!).  Side note:  Has anybody been watching How To Get Away With Murder?  I really liked it when it started last year, but they started losing me towards the end of the season.  I’ve picked it back up this season, but I haven’t been liking it AT ALL and I’m really close to giving it up for good.  Thoughts?

Current wish list:  A day in which all I have to do is move from my bed to the couch with a full DVR and a good book to read.  Seriously, that’s all I want.

Current needs:  A really good massage.  I’ve been having some back/shoulder issues lately, and they just aren’t letting up.  I had a massage over Fall Break, but it hasn’t seemed to alleviate much.

Current triumphs:  You know that feeling you get when it just seems like you’re rocking at your job?  I’ve kind of been feeling that lately, and it’s super nice!

Current bane of my existence:   An overloaded schedule

Current celebrity crush:   Well, I mentioned Limitless above so I’m going to with Jake McDorman.  He’s pretty tasty :)


Current indulgence:  I’m trying NOT to indulge right now.  I’ve got some big goals in the next few months, and being about five pounds lighter would be super helpful.

Current blessing:  Opportunities that create a busy schedule.  I am definitely overextended and wiped out, but I’m also taking part in a lot of pretty cool things that I’ll be glad I didn’t miss.  I’m thankful that I’m living a life that makes that possible.

Current outfit:  A standard teacher outfit of black pants and one of about five shirts that I rotate.  Have I said I need to go shopping??  (same as last month although I did manage to buy two more tops!).

Current excitement:   YOU GUYS!!  I’ve been bursting to talk about this since I started this post!  In case this is the first time you’ve been on the Internet in the past two days, I have some very exciting news for you. NETFLIX IS IN TALKS TO BRING BACK THE GILMORE GIRLS!!!  It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE Gilmore fan, and I’ve been freaking out about this since the news broke last night.  I am beyond excited!  I almost don’t even care if it sucks.  It will just be so nice to be back in Stars Hollow!


Current mood:  Gilmore is coming back, all’s right with the world :)

What’s going on with you currently?

    I’ve only watched the first episode of this season of How To Get Away With Murder… agree with you that I’m not sure that I like it! I just hate that they keep adding more murders. It was already a pretty thin premise but now all credibility/plausibility is shot.

      Exactly! I think the plausibility is the hardest thing for me. I’m not someone that needs for things to be able to happen in real life, but, if you are creating something in the realistic fiction genre, then, yes, you’re viewers need to believe it!
