August Currents

Current Read: I am slowly making my way through this book about female friendship and it is SO good. It has given me good context and understanding for some of the things that feel "hard" in my relationships. I actually would like to blog about my takeaways once I finish the book, but like I said I'm making my way through it slowly. 

Current Playlist: I'm kind of late to the party but I just started using iTunes radio and I love it. My favorite station is Chicago because they play things like Air Supply, REO Speedwagon, Elton John, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, and you get the drift.

Current Color(s): Aqua. It's just my summer favorite.

Current Food: I'm finishing up a 3-day cleanse today and trying to figure out what I want to eat tomorrow when I can return to a normal diet. Hmmmmmm....

Current Favorite Favorite: Amazon Prime!

Current Addiction: HGTV. I love Fixer Upper...and Flip or Flop...and Property Brothers. But now it's Shark Week so I'm movin' on to the Discovery Channel. I really am a TV addict.

Current Wish List: Another month of summer. 

Current Need: Oh my gosh, I NEED a haircut. So badly. It's been a two months...and the only way I can stand to wear my hair right now is in a ponytail.

Current Triumph: I didn't open my laptop at all yesterday. I also stayed off of my phone. I did check my email (via phone) twice and had a few texts I responded to but kept them short and sweet. It was a nice break! I'm doing a "Digital Detox" on Sundays in August. Want to join me? I'm telling you, yesterday was nice.

Current Annoyance: All of the paperwork/forms that comes with the beginning of a school year for THREE kids. Ugh. All of my kids have their processing day guess what I'm working on today?

Current Blessing(s): God's timing is pretty amazing and I've seen some things come together in the past week that were just perfectly orchestrated by Him. I love that so much.

Current Outfit: Jean capris, green top, brown flip flops. Might need a light sweater when I get out's currently 48degrees. 

Current Excitement: Football season starts very soon! And my girls and I are going on a short trip in two weeks!

Current Project(s): I never mentioned what our project was that John and I stayed home to work on while our kids were gone. We got a letter in the mail from an older couple who was moving to the area and were looking to buy a house in our neighborhood. They wanted a rancher and our house fit the bill so they asked if they could talk to us if we had plans to list our house or move in the near future. The funny thing is that we DO want to move in the next year or so. So while our kids were away we got our house in TIP TOP shape and showed it to them. They said very nice things about our house in comparison to the others they looked at (we figured they sent several letters and we were right about that) but it wasn't the best fit for their needs. It was kind of the impetus we needed to get the ball rolling with thinking through all the things we need to do to get our house ready to list. That's not happening in the next month or anything...but we hope sooner rather than later.

Current plans for the day: Work, errands, and paperwork. Sigh.

Peace out, peeps!
