currently | in a world without calories

Currently is a weekly link-up with the lovely  Randalin of Harvesting Kale and I am her happy co-host each week. I hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using the provided themes or your own) and please join us by linking up. What have you been reviewing, wishing, eating, carrying, running this week? Over here, we have been...

Reviewing the feelings. There have been a lot of feelings this week, not yay! Maybe it's the summer heat or the fact that our schedules are all kind of thrown or I don't know what but it's just been a reviewing the feelings and surfing the feelings kind of week. There has been a lot of "grouchy grouchy! can I hit people?!?!" at work and a lot of "grouchy! grouchy! where are the mashed potatoes and why am I crying?!?!" at home. I am hoping the fact that Project Runway started up again will do some sort of magic mood confetti thing to the universe and reverse this feelings spiral I'm in and replace it with parachute gowns of fabulousness. Tim Gunn take me away!

Wishing for some truly unscheduled quiet time, like days and days of it, to spend with my little nuclear family. I feel like we have life a.d.d. right now. I just want like a solid week someplace clean (as in I don't have to clean it) and breezy to spend outside with my kids taking naps in sunbeams and eating tamales and playing games and chilling together with no distractions or interruptions but lots of cold ocean water and hot sand. Anyone have a Mexico beach house and a private jet they want to lend me for a week or two?

Eating the feelings and they taste like mashed potatoes. Question: If you could only eat 1 food for a month what would you pick? I'm 99% sure I'd pick mashed potatoes. Note: This is a stranded on a desert island with George Clooney in a world without calories scenario.

Carrying paint from the front porch where it was finally delivered to the kitchen table where it will be used to paint my kitchen table! Chalk paint better be all that everyone has made it out to be and more. I guess I will find out tomorrow night. Yip!

Running on a treadmill in my mind. Otherwise, not. Well... also kind of running (shuffling?) after my bruiser of a daughter as she smashes her way through life. She's ridonc and has the most scraped up knees and collection of booboos I've ever seen on a precious little angel 16 month old girly girl. And Otto, well he has been running around not saying please or thank you. If I have to remind this child one more time to be polite I am going to be running to the Gin, Apricot Ale, and Hot Mashed Potatoes store (ps. oh why is this not a real store?!) because I. Just. Can't.    

That was this week. Here are next week's themes: 
watching, listening, writing, loving, creating
